Press Release



Irish Author, Tové Kane, Brings the Gift of Laughter to Menopausal Women, Unveils Her New Book "Laughter Yoga: A Year of Chuckling Through 'The Change'".


CARNAGH EAST, COUNTY ROSCOMMON (2 FEBRUARY 202) — Irish resident Tové Kane is set to light up the world with her fresh take on navigating menopause, as she introduces her latest book, "Laughter Yoga: A Year Of Chuckling Through 'The Change'". This insightful read promises to be every menopausal woman's new best friend.

Kane's book delves into the transformative power of laughter during menopause, illustrating how it can reduce stress, enhance resilience, and promote an essential sense of well-being during this significant life transition.


The roots of Laughter Yoga trace back to India, where Dr. Madan Kataria, a medical doctor, founded this unique practice in 1995. Now, with millions of practitioners spanning over 120 countries, the laughter movement is stronger than ever. Tové Kane, the MC at the recent Laughter Yoga World Conference in India, proudly launched her book alongside Dr. Kataria, who personally mentored her to become a Laughter Yoga Master Trainer.


Kane also offers in-person and online certification courses in Ireland, empowering Laughter Yoga Leaders and Teachers to unlock the health benefits of laughter in various facets of life, including communities, schools, special needs environments, businesses, care homes, and healthcare facilities.


Backed by hundreds of scientific studies confirming the tangible health advantages of Laughter Yoga, Kane's book acts as a daily diary, brimming with ideas on how to induce laughter, even when it seems impossible. Kane revisits the theme of initiating laughter no matter your mood, so that it swiftly becomes infectious and potent enough to help women process grief and loss.


Tové Kane explains, "I laugh every day but I’m not happy every day. I’m happier after laughter. I wanted to demonstrate the connection between laughter and health for other menopausal women. It can be a painful and confusing time. There’s a lot of science behind laughter's positive impact on the body and mind. Admittedly, I sometimes don’t feel like laughing, but I volunteer to do it, and soon there’s a release of endorphins, a reduction in stress hormones, and a feeling of hope to navigate the day."


Packed with humour, candid vulnerability, and practical tips, the book provides a year's worth of laughter exercises, delivering a daily boost of positivity and empowerment. Tové Kane isn't just a guide; she's a trusted friend, offering unwavering support to menopausal women, equipping them with the strength and motivation to face each day with a smile, no matter the hurdles.


For in-person and online interviews, Tové Kane is readily available to share her laughter-filled wisdom.
