New Laughter Yoga in James Bay
A new session begins this Thursday Feb 10th at James Bay Community Centre, 140 Oswego Street.
This is Kathleen Roxborough’s club and due to her hard work, 9 people are signed up. There is still room for up to 6 more.
This will be a 9 week session, not a drop in. It goes from 6pm to 7pm every Thursday and I (Matti) will be leading as Kathleen has to attend to family.
Be sure to pass this on to friends and family who are in the James Bay area, or for whom Thursday is the best time.
Check out the other sessions around Victoria: Here is the schedule link. For a real boost, attend 2-4 times this week: https://victorialaughteryogaclub.wordpress.com/laughter-schedule/

About this ONEARTH PRACTICE: Laughter not only strengthens our immune system, it also boosts our energy and protects us from the damaging effects of stress. Laughter connects us to the present moment and nurtures our roots to grow. When it is shared, it will unite us together to increase our happiness and intimacy. Laughter is another tool to take us into inner silence, to create a space in us and connect with joy to the present moment. Besides, isn’t it nice to remember not to take our spiritual paths too seriously?
“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I shall have the belief that I can do it. I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it, even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
Mahatma Gandhi 1869-1948, Indian Nationalist Leader
