What Freedom Truly is: The Healing Power of Laughter: Laughter, the Newsletter August 15 2012

Hearty laughter is a good way to jog internally without having to go outdoors. 

-Norman Cousins

Here’s hoping this finds you basking in the sun…or the shade if you burn easily as I do. Wonderful to have some real summer.

Motivational speaker Jim Rohn (Tony Robbins’ mentor) is quoted as saying, “People say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does showering, that’s why we do it daily.”

The same could be said for laughter. We feel good and get the benefits from coming to Laughter Yoga.

But laughter is like Vitamin C. We need it as a daily nutrient. If we go long enough without Vitamin C, scurvy is the result.

If we go long enough without laughter, “hardening of the stress response” might result.

The solution: attend your local neighbourhood Laughter Yoga Club weekly and laugh every day as well.

Laughter Yoga is the unique concept that we can laugh for no reason at all.
* Laughter exercises send endorphins (feel good hormones) to the brain.
* Yoga breathing: more oxygen to brain and body equals:
* Feeling healthier and more energetic.
* Sessions are led by a certified Laughter Yoga Leader.
* Non-profit, non-religious, non-political

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:
