Laughter Yoga is a unique exercise routine which combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing (Pranayama). Anyone can laugh without relying on humor, jokes or comedy. Laughter yoga is a great opportunity for people who have Alzheimer’s disease or other kinds
of dementia because people don’t have to be able to comprehend a joke’s punch line to laugh. Since the memory, word-finding ability and communication abilities of someone with dementia may be impaired, the idea of laughter for no reason fits well.
