Abercrombie & Kent, the world’s leading authority on luxury and experiential travel, has discovered great value in Laughter Yoga.
Their Executive Vice President Simon Laxton is looking at ways to bring this concept to their annual Las Vegas ‘highest level’ meeting and also the London one. Their Managing director of India, Vikram Madhok, has expressed an interest in using Laughter Yoga for cruise line tours and as part of their India Cultural Lecturer program.
Dr Madan Kataria, the founder of Laughter Yoga movement, deputed us from Indore to showcase Laughter Yoga before senior level executives of Abercrombie & Kent at the picturesque city of Udaipur. Twenty-six delegates had gathered at Hotel Leela Palace Kempinski on the beautiful Pichola lake for their cruise conference 2013.
One of the delegates exclaimed on the completion of the laughter session, “In the beginning, it seemed a bit crazy. Then we started enjoying it. Now, we love it! It was simply fantastic!! We are feeling as free as birds in the sky..”
Another delegate shared his experience thus, “Two simple things that we learned just now – breathing and laughing from our diaphragm – have made us feel so light and relaxed. It’s a great feeling.”
This is what their global cruise ambassador, David Vass, based in Miami, had to say a couple of days after the laughter session, “Thank you for both of your excellent energy, understanding of our group time constraints and the delicious outcome you brought to us! Everybody truly enjoyed this session, especially in the middle of ‘budget day’! We referenced the Laughter yoga techniques throughout the remainder of the conference – making milkshakes, being an elephant and so many of the other happy little bits you supplied us with.”
