The world is a mirror and reflects back to you what you put into it?


Every week at Laughter Yoga, we change what we put out into the world.


And every week, the world changes for us.


Big problems become smaller.


Angst turns into smiles.


Pains get smaller or vanish.


What if?


You could have that experience EVERY DAY?


One of the great discoveries for me this year is that this life is about giving…not receiving!


The more we give from the heart, the sweeter this life becomes.

From Gael Guillaume Godiveau’s Facebook page: In a time of economic turmoil when no one has money to lend for growth projects there is something far more important that is needed. Form groups of like-minded individuals who will lend you their belief in you and in your project. Loans of faith like this pay dividends that change the world forever.

Guillaume was the first leader in Victoria, who really was a spark plug getting Laughter Yoga going here.

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:
