Laughter Yoga

Laughter Yoga was founded by Dr. Madan Kataria in Mumbai with the goal to bring good health, joy and peace to the world through laughter.

Laughter Yoga Clubs are fast growing into a worldwide community of like-minded people who believe in unconditional Love, Laughter and Fellowship.

On his official website electronic versions of his two books, “Laugh for no Reason” and “The Inner Spirit of Laughter”, can be purchased. Loads of interesting articles and announcements for trainings, retreats and teachers all over the world can be found at

Check out this lovely brief film on Youtube for an introduction of Laughter Yoga from my mentor and teacher:

The Nun Center

The Nun Center is the most beautiful center for holistic therapies that Cairo has to offer. This heart-centered business was launched by two young entrepreneurs – themselves wonderful practitioners – who are dedicated to offer treatments which are both, relaxing and therapeutic. Each working its own way to bring balance to clients by reducing stress and moving them towards a deeper understanding of themselves.

By inviting practitioners to Egypt from around the world, a wide spectrum of services is offered in: nutrition, homeopathy, chi kung, body work, energy work, and yoga. Nūn is a delightful oasis to gather for morning yoga classes, evening cooking workshops, or an afternoon tea… and for Laughter Yoga. It is a place to be at ease, breathe deeply, and find like-minded people and friends.

I feel very blessed to offer Laughter Yoga sessions in this gorgeous space. Please check it out:

Zumba is definitely a fantastic way to work out and have fun at the same time. It might not have the same therapeutic quality as Laughter Yoga though, but it is hot and it is inn! The great mix of fast hits from India, Latin America and the Middle East goes with high speed dance moves and has swept the world. It’s getting more and more popular in Egypt as well. You simply can’t do it without triggering the release of plenty of Endorphines, sweat and smiles.

I feel blessed that my gorgeous Zumba instructor Emeline Lavender from New York became my friend and neighbor! She is amazing to watch in action and gives classes in lots of great places.

For those of you who live in Cairo, check out her website and her facebook page and her website.
