98 Year Old Laugher from Taiwan. Laughter, the Newsletter Feb 25, 2011

Snow in Victoria..wow…it is actually great on a sunny day like today. Makes for a bright outlook.


Wednesday night class had only one person, though….me! ho ho ha ha ha. I laughed for 15 minutes by myself. Great fun.


The Thursday night class was cancelled, though. Another class will be added on to the end of the session. Program Coordinator, Kate Longpre, and myself felt it would be most fair for everyone that way. We felt sure some would be able to make it, being close by, but that some would not. So to be fair to those that could not, we extended the session by one week to April 7th.


No such problem for tomorrow’s class. Saturday morning at 10 is a GO. And I got a call from a visiting Laughter Yoga Teacher from Italy. Margo has a daughter on a student exchange in Nanaimo and is visiting her there. But first, she will come and laugh with us tomorrow morning.


So, we will have some “international” laughter tomorrow. Come and join the fun.


Remember, age is not a factor. Anyone at any age can laugh. Founder Dr. Kataria met a 98 year old Laughter Yoga participant during his travels in Taiwan:

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:
