Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” Marcus Aurelius 121-180, Roman Emperor and Philosopher

Victoria Laughter Day.
With the great success of World Laughter Day, we will have a Victoria Laughter Day in early September. Date and time to be determined.
Happiness Creates Wealth.
This is a part of an email sent to me by Marci Shimoff, author of “Happy for no Reason.”
“I nearly drove into the ditch
when I heard on the radio that
people who are happy
earn $750,000 more in their lifetime
That’s a lot—3/4 of a million dollars!
More than 255 studies show that money doesn’t buy happiness. Studies say it is the other way around: Happiness attracts money.
The radio story didn’t even address the fact that happy people are more fulfilled, relaxed, and peaceful. …that they naturally get lower prices, more opportunities, better care, more friends, greater intimacy, and so on.
You might think, “I would be happy too if I had more intimacy (or that car, that raise, that home…),” but it is the other way around. If you’re happy first, everything else will come. High wages. Great relationships. Better sex. Career advancements. Customers. Great deals. Contentment in your home….”
Come to Laughter Yoga and build your “Happiness Muscles.”

Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training:
Announcing: The New You!
You look in the mirror and see the clear transformation.
You are smiling the broadest smile ever.
Your eyes are sparkling.
There are fewer wrinkles…at least it feels that way.
You take a deep breath. As you exhale, you sense a warmth in the pit of your stomach.
You close your eyes and that warm and fuzzy feeling floods your whole body.
You open your eyes and you are almost giddy with the vibrant energy coursing through your veins.
For a moment, you think you have died and gone to heaven.
But this is real.
You can’t wait to get to work and dig into those challenges…(Click here to read on about the training on June 11 and 12):
Laughter Helps Parkinson’s Patient
From Laughter Leader Laura Lou Pape-McCarthy:
“I’ve been working with Parkinson’s Disease patients, blending together an exercise system developed specifically for them by John Argue and LY.
One of the difficult symptoms of Parkinson’s that many people experience is lack of facial expression along with a host of other movement issues.
At the last group one of the participant’s husbands sat on the perimiter of the the room working on a laptop during the class and was very surprised by how much mobility and vigor was showing in his wifes face at the end of the class!
It was a big deal for her to be able to share her joy with her husband, I felt so blessed!
Very Good, Very Good, YAY!
It’s amazing that people can get instant benefits from something as easy and free as laughter. YAY!!!!”

Laughter Yoga is the unique concept that we can laugh for no reason at all.

* Feeling healthier and more energetic.
* Sessions are led by a certified Laughter Yoga Leader.
* Non-profit, non-religious, non-political
