Laughter: The Newsletter July 16, 2010

Summertime and the livin’ is easy.

Not lots to report…some folks are on holidays, some are lazing in the great weather we are having in this neck o’ the woods.

So, Saturday morning Laughter Yoga is going with the flow…no more “official” sessions for July or August. We will re-start in September. Keep on laughin’ though. J

Quote break: “Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” –Buddha


Victoria Laughter Yoga Website:

This is a preliminary site. Kinda like a “Work-in-progress.” Still lots to be done for improvement. But, here it is anyway in its “Diamond in the rough form.”


Another quote…this from the Irish poet Brendan Behan: When I came back to Dublin I was courtmartialed in my absence and sentenced to death in my absence, so I said they could shoot me in my absence. -Brendan Behan


I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose.  ~Woody Allen

Even if there is nothing to laugh about, laugh on credit.  ~Author Unknown

And, one of my faves: A man isn’t poor if he can still laugh.  ~Raymond Hitchcock

Yours in Laughter…ho ho ha ha,

Matti Anttila Certifed Laughter Yoga Teacher, Professional Laughter Dude.

P.S. Reward for scrolling to the end: Another Quote:

“Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times.” – Aeschylus


About Victoria Laughter Yoga Club

Victoria Laughter Yoga Club is affiliated with Dr. Madan Kataria's School of Laughter Yoga. We laugh: Just ‘cause: ☺It feels good ☺Fights cancer* ☺Conquers stress ☺Improves circulation ☺Smooths out wrinkles ☺Is efficient exercise** ☺Slows the aging process ☺Boosts immunity(fight colds) ☺Oxygen to brain=clear thinking * Dr. Otto Warburg, President, Institute of Cell Physiology, Nobel Prize Winner (twice) says: “Deep breathing techniques increase oxygen to the cells and are the most important factors in living a disease-free and energetic life. When cells get enough oxygen, cancer will not and cannot occur.” (My bolding) **Dr. W. Fry states that 10 minutes of hearty laughter is equal to 30 minutes or rowing or jogging.(Journal of General Psychology, 1938) Laughter Yoga goes beyond just laughter. Founder Dr. Madan Kataria has developed techniques to stimulate childlike playfulness, to adjust the aerobic and stretching component, and to promote emotional flow and release. Laughter Yoga can improve your physical health, release negative thoughts and emotions and get in touch with your spiritual nature. It helps us to develop an attitude of forgiveness, generosity, compassion and helpfulness while actively seeking the happiness of others. Combined, these principles can provide a powerful life-changing experience that we call the inner spirit of laughter. Laughter Yoga Clubs are non-political, non-religious, non-profit. There are a number of clubs in the Victoria area. Email for more info and current schedule:
