Who Else Wants to Live in Bliss?

If You Want To Create Joy, Energy, Happiness And Bliss Beyond Belief … Even If Nothing’s Worked For You In The Past. . .

 

Give Me One Weekend And I’ll Show You the Easy Steps That Can Transform Your Life Into: Happiness 24/7

I’ll Walk You Through the Easy-To-Apply New Habits That Will Rewire Your Brain for Happiness and Success.

 

Just imagine what it will be like to wake up every morning and know you hold the “Master Key” to Bliss. You will feel a warm glow in your belly because you’ve finally found the keys to achieve limitless Bliss, Joy, Energy and Abundance.

And the best part is, once you complete the weekend, you will be firmly in control of your own happiness. And even after you finish the program, all it takes is 22 and a half minutes a day to maintain your Bliss and your “Personal Heaven On Earth.”

You see, this is unlike any program you’ve ever heard of or bought. Why?

Because Being Happy Is As Easy As “Falling In Love.”

Some of you may remember the Buddy Holly song: “It’s So Easy to Fall in Love.” That’s exactly what I discovered about Joy and Happiness. “It’s So Easy to Fall into Joy.”

My name is Matti Anttila. I’m a Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher. At one of our weekly Laughter Yoga classes, we did an exercise where we try to make a person laugh or smile while they did their level best NOT to smile.

One person asked what was the purpose of that exercise? She answered the question herself when she said: “It was painful not to smile.”

And that is the discovery that I made:

 

Our Normal Way Of Being Is Painful. Not Being Happy Is Actually Painful!

We are taught to be serious, because: “Life is serious, don’t you know. I have to earn a living and I’m stressed out. I have to bear down and work hard and there’s no a time to be frivolous.”

It’s painful to live this way! And when we are in pain, it’s hard to get things done.

The Latest Scientific Research Has Proven Beyond Doubt:

 

 We Can Be More Successful By Being Happy First!

The myth we have been programmed to believe is this: Work hard to achieve your goals and then you can be happy.

The problem with this model for happiness is: IT DOESN’T WORK!! This model is broken.

Scientific research proves:

Those Who Are Happy First, Find It Easier To Achieve Their Goals.

But, how do you get happy with all these problems?

“There’s not enough month at the end of my money. Not enough time to do all the things I have to do…never mind want to do. There is so  much to do at work that I’ll never get it all done.

 

I’m stressed out and can’t see any light at the end of the tunnel. I seem to be on a treadmill: get up, go to work, come home, have dinner, watch some TV, go to bed and start all over again the next day.

 

Not only that, but the world is full of challenges; Climate change, wars, famine, crime and political strife.

 

How can I be happy in the face of all that?”

 

It may seem an impossible task, but also it may seem irresponsible to be happy in a sad and miserable world.

Actually, the opposite is true.

If We Are Happy And Joyful, Then We Radiate Joy And Spread Happiness.

That seems to me like a “Higher Calling” than perpetuating sadness and misery.

The good news is we CAN feel joy, be happy and bathe in a sea of bliss. We CAN            do that and we SHOULD.

The good news also is when we are happy, we are more able to help a sick world. We are better equipped with tools and techniques to get things done…including helping to ease some of the misery in this world.

Why?

You Will Be More Successful By Being In Bliss!!!

The great news is; it’s easier to be in bliss than to be stressed, sad, miserable or depressed.

“The Zen Of Joy: How to Rewire Your Brain For Happiness and Success. Simple and Easy Protocols for Performance, Productivity and Profits.” This is not about more information. “Falling into Bliss” is not about reading more books, attending more self development and spiritual seminars and so on.

What stops you is the information you already have that isn’t working for you. The limiting beliefs about happiness and joy…the rules you have picked up and been conditioned to believe in over a lifetime. These rules about what you need to do and what you need to be in order to feel joy and bliss and happiness.

These rules are not the rules, they are your rules. Unnecessary rules that have nothing to do with being a good person. Rules that many people, happily for them, do not have.

Are You Ready To Break Your Own Rules? …

If it means “Falling into Bliss” and having the joy and happiness you have been craving all your life?

When you apply The Zen of Joy System, you will explore and delight in:

– A 5 minute system to be Happy 24/7

– A 13 second habit throughout the day to stay plugged into the Happy 24/7 protocol.

– A 3 minute protocol to Lift Money Worries forever

–  A 1 minute day system to stop the stress hormones and produce the “feel good” hormones

– A 4 second protocol to immediately change into a “positive state” anytime, anywhere.

– A 6 second habit that immediately relieves stress

– A 5 minute practice that:

* Releases the feel good hormones such as endorphins,

* Increases oxygen supply to the organs, allowing them to do better,

* Reduces stress,

* Helps eliminate harmful toxins from the body,

* Can help lessen anxiety, which can cause many health problems,

* Helps to normalize blood pressure,

* Helps you to be more alert without a caffeine fix,

* Can increase your energy after a tiring work day,

* Can help you focus better when you have too many things to do,

* Can improves blood circulation so your bones and muscles get more nutrients, and

* Can even relieve pain, like when you stub your toe.

– A powerful, joy inducing “Mindful Meditation” practice that takes zero seconds a day because you do it in odd moments while waiting in line

– A 1 minute protocol (really only about 2 seconds once you master it) that immediately “locks in” the positive emotions around completing a task and primes the pump for your next task or challenge

– A 2 minute easy-to-do small change that produces huge results in your positive outlook on life…no matter what is happening around you

– A 1 minute practice so powerful it shut down a hospital for the criminally insane, by healing 28 of the 30 patients

– A two and a half minute “breathing meditation” that supports and helps to “lock in” the habits you have learned so far

– A 20 second “incantation” that magnetizes you to receive more of the good in life

– A 60 second process to release 3 of the biggest negative subconscious beliefs many of have been programmed with

– A 1 minute “Voice Exercise” that lifts your spirits and supports the Joy you are now feeling every day

– Advanced work/play that “primes the pump” to release the blocks to receiving abundance in all its forms…love, relationships, money, career, business.

– Creativity exercises that you do during the day, taking no extra time, but producing those feel good hormones at will whenever you want

– Leading edge exercise programs producing the physical fitness you have wanted all your life in only minutes a week

– Another “It-only-takes-a-few-seconds-throughout-the-day” practice that plugs you in to your inner source of power and healing (Hint: we all have this, but few of us use it for healing)

– 3 problem solving protocols when you really find yourself stuck…tap deeply into your intuition to cut through the stickiest, knottiest, gnarliest challenges. (Hint: You have the resources inside you to handle whatever shows up…otherwise, God/The Universe/The Great Spirit would not have sent it to you…here are the tools you need to meet those challenges head on)

– A quick first-thing-in-the-morning practice to release the love inside you and magnetize you for ever increasing amounts of love

– A super quick and easy habit that takes no extra time to dramatically improve your relationships

– A powerful change of a simple habit to truly bring out the best, most courageous, most effective parts of you to the fore.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

After this weekend, you could be basking in the warm glow of continuous Bliss, Joy, Happiness, Energy and Feelings of Abundance.

This very letter could have been the defining moment of your life…

Or… you could fall into the sea of people who let yet another life-changing opportunity pass them by…

The choice is yours.

Let me explain…

For decades, I have been researching anything and everything to get to the source of happiness and joy.

It started during my “hippie” days, with “herbs” and other supposedly mind-expanding substances. I stumbled on to Transcendental Meditation, Ashtanga Yoga, Vita-Flex, Kung Fu, Judo, Aikido, Tai Chi, Qigong, Herbology, Nutrition, exercise, energy work, Laughter Yoga and a host of other disciplines.

All of these seemingly diverse practices contributed to the path that led to feeling Bliss most of the time. You will notice I said “most of the time.” This is a path that you and I are on and I get knocked off it occasionally, just like you. But, there is a…

Quick Way To Get Back To The Path, To Balance And To Bliss.

The tools and techniques I have developed for my own use allow me to quickly get back into Bliss whenever I fall off the path.

Now you can now plug into those very same tools and techniques (which I call protocols) without the decades of research that I went through. 

These tools allow virtually anyone to:

Instantly Overcome Even the Most Stubborn, Longstanding Negative Beliefs and
Emotions–And Transform Them Into Bliss!

And… what I’ve discovered… literally… continues to blow my mind, time and time again!

Now, this might not make me the most popular guy for saying this, but I honestly believe that you don’t need to go through years and years of…

-Writing affirmations
-Thinking “positive”
-Trying to “get passionate”
-Endless goal setting
-Assuming that “massive action” will solve everything
-Working harder…

…just to attract success into your life! You see, most people work very hard and take lots of action, yet never attract the happiness they deserve. In fact, when it comes to happiness (and success), I’ve found that…

Almost Everyone Attempts to Get Happy The HARD Way!

But here’s the good news: There is a much, much easier, more enjoyable, and infinitely more effective way.

In fact, after decades of research, I’m absolutely convinced you can…

Get into Bliss and Happiness Within Minutes…AND be More Successful in ALL Areas of Your Life.

I know. It sounds absolutely insane, doesn’t it?

The reason it sounds crazy may well be because we are still operating under a myth that is broken. The myth that says become successful first and then you will have happiness.

But, as the famous author Deepak Chopra is quoted as saying:

“The secret to attraction is to love oneself.”

And listen. If this wasn’t working for me, I’d think it was just a bunch of “New Age Woo Woo Stuff” myself. But the fact is, it works. Once I started practicing this simple set of “energy protocols”…

Incredible Success Started to Flood Into All Areas of My Life!

What stokes me up no end is that others can use these protocols to get the same results.

When you learn this system, you’ll:

* Dramatically increase your happiness, your joy, your energy and your Bliss

* Get in touch with your intuition which can give you solutions to many of your “problems”

* Develop an overwhelmingly positive outlook on life

* Find and experience a new way of being that literally changes your world for the better

* Find newfound clarity about exactly what you want

* Have a “do-it-yourself” healing system that you can practice anytime

* Be able to release stress and anxiety anywhere, anytime

* Find a new richness and fulfillment in every moment

* Become a “love magnet” as you radiate positive energy and love, you will find it comes back multiplied many times

Rewire Your Brain For Happiness, Joy and Bliss

 

Imagine if you could reprogram your brain and create an “Automated Happiness GPS” that continually moved you toward your joy, happiness and bliss.

The reason you are not in bliss at this very moment is because your subconscious mind is trying to protect you. You see, it’s those programs that were installed, those beliefs that form your “truth.”

It’s not your fault. It’s just that part of you is programmed to keep you “safe.”

Most of us use a “Default Operating System.” It’s the system our parents gave us. And it’s the one their parents gave them.

Unfortunately, it’s a lie. A faulty system. A glitch in the hard drive. One based on illusion, passed down from generation to generation. And really, it’s an “Automatic Misery GPS!”

What no one told you is that any disruptions that we experience in life are simply disruptions in the energy field. And once you create your “Automatic Happiness GPS”…

 

You Become 100% “Optimized” For Entering Bliss Beyond Belief!

You literally “flip a switch” that tunes into a “joy frequency”… that just can’t be stopped!

Ever Wished You Could Just “Turn Off The World?”

Well, now you can! With these protocols, you are just moments away from bliss at any time, anywhere.

To say you’re getting some quality “bang for the buck” doesn’t even begin to describe what I’m offering here.

The real value is the astonishing feeling of joy and happiness you’ll achieve once you use the system.

Just imagine, most people spend their entire lives in the “pursuit of happiness.” Chasing after money, status, fame, love, houses and cars and NEVER achieve this state of bliss, joy and happiness.

Listen, there are both rich people and poor people who are unhappy. AND there are rich people and poor people who are happy.

The great secret is:

The Happier You Are, The More Joy And Bliss You Feel, The Easier It Is Have The Physical Riches Of The World As Well.

We really have put the cart before the horse.

This is an entirely new way of living, to…

A truly joyful existence!

As you can see, the course itself is priceless. If you had to put a lifetime value on it, it would easily be worth tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.

 

What is your cost? First, you will need to invest a weekend. We are talking about changing the habits of a lifetime. You can’t do that in one hour. What you can do in one weekend is familiarize yourself with the simple tools and techniques to insert new and powerful habits in place of habits that may not be serving you anymore.

Your second investment is $397.You will pay more for a flat screen TV. The purchase of a TV will give you a thrill that many think of as happiness. But how long does it last until it becomes “just part of the furniture?”

In fact, our consumer society has us chasing all kinds of things to buy that are supposed to make us happy. How much is the “latte habit” costing you? I don’t buy them so I am guessing they run $4.00. Multiply by 5 days a week and 52 weeks a year and you are spending $1040 a year on something that promises happiness. We know that there is zero nutritional value in a latte, yet we justify it with something like this: “It’s my little treat. I work hard, with my nose to the grindstone and it helps me get through the day.”

Instead, why not create a life that is blissful, joyous and happy. That way, we can throw out our crutches, one by one.

Tell me: How much money can we save each and every year if we did not need to buy “stuff’ to make ourselves feel good?

“Shop till you drop” seems to be the mantra to chase after that good feeling.

How about just turning on the “Joy Key” whenever you want and saving hundreds on each shopping trip? Doesn’t that sound like a better strategy?

Look, there is nothing wrong with having “stuff.” In fact, you deserve to have pleasant surroundings. AND, this is one of the great secrets of the Universe:

It’s Easier To Be Successful And Get The “Stuff” You Want When You’re Happy First!

My personal confession about The Zen of Joy:

It Isn’t Just About Feeling Good.

Of course, if you use The Zen of Joy and follow the instructions, you can’t help but feel great.

But ultimately, The Zen of Joy is about…

Clearing Your Blocks To Fully-Empowered Conscious Living

 

Empowering You To Heal Yourself AND Be A Positive Influence To Those Around You

Spreading the “Automatic Happiness GPS” around the world…and creating a better future for everyone

It’s About Releasing Virtually Every Block You Have Toward Prosperous, Conscious Living… And… Changing The World In The Process.

It’s about who you are… how you live… what you say… and what actions you take. That’s the real power of this system: it translates into all areas of your life.

At this point, you’ve got to be wondering only one thing…

Will The Zen of Joy work for me?

-Will I feel bliss?

-Will I be able to relieve stress and anxiety wherever I am?

-Will I be able to get into a “positive state” whatever I am doing?

-Will I increase my energy to deal with the many challenges I face?

-Will I reprogram negative subconscious beliefs?

-Will I actually and really “Lift Money Worries…forever???

-Will I feel more positive about life?

-Will I look forward to facing my problems head on?

-Will I feel a close connection to others and yes, even feel more love?

The answer is a resounding YES!

The only question left is…

Are you ready to finally change your state to one of Bliss? Or will you, like most people, allow your fears and doubts to sabotage your success?

The funny thing is, if you do still have fears, you’ll learn how to release them on the course.

It would be a shame, would it not, to not invest in the very system that releases your fears… all because those blocks aren’t allowing you to take action right now?

The choice is yours to make…right now.

Book your space at the workshop now.

Just one of the 24 Protocols in The Zen of Joy is laughter.

There are, of course, many ways to plug into this.

Some do it through meditation.

Some run for miles to get the “runner’s high.”

Laughter is a direct route, a shortcut.

Certified Laughter Yoga Leader training was the “key” that opened the lock.

Laughter, giggling and smiling are second nature now.

Instead of reacting to events by tightening my stomach muscles, I am now more likely to giggle, smile and sometimes laugh at those same events.

There is a song title: “When you’re smiling, the whole world smiles with you.”

Well…IT’S TRUE!!!! It happens every day to me.

Imagine having such a strong smile that many people on the street smile back at you.

You can have that too.

That is, if you choose.

Not everyone is ready to let go of entrenched habits. Habits that may cause something less than joy.

Does it really work?

How about this?

Prisoners have to have one of the worst situations. Locked away, told what to do and when to do it every day.

Look what Laughter Yoga is doing for some prisoners…in a Mexican jail:

 

Laughter Yoga Project in Prisons in Mexico aims to Unleash Happiness

 

Luis Gomez has a heart for doing Laughter Yoga in the penitentiary system in Mexico City. He has a very large goal of reaching out to every prisoner and to help empower them to tap into their inner happiness. The aim is in alignment with Laughter Yoga International to create World Peace starting with peace within ourselves.

 

Ideally, by practicing laughter yoga, prisoners will be reminded to make better choices for themselves…

 

In the Instituto Mexicano de Yoga de la Risa (Mexican Laughter Yoga Institute) we are convinced of the healing powers of this technique that gives the opportunity of empowering other human beings to remember that happiness exists within every single one of us, no matter the conditions in which we are, and from then on, we can establish harmonious relationships with the rest of the people…

 

In general the inmates are very grateful for all what they’ve got from the meetings. They said that they feel a refresher every time they do it. They feel free. They think that the exercise exercises help them to realize that they can cultivate their internal peace. Also, they are thankful for the opportunity to keep on with the sessions since they truly believe in this project…”   (From LaughterYoga.org)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

If Laughter Yoga can work for prisoners in a Mexican jail to access their inner happiness, it just may work for you.

Caveat: No one can force you to laugh.

 

You do have to bring your willingness to the table.

 

But, I guarantee you this:

 

 If you bring willingness and are willing to work and play through the initial discomfort/unease/embarrassment/what-have-you, you too can have a breakthrough and become:

“The New You.”

You can be a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader ready to:

* Help others laugh more and relieve their stress, but also to

* Be a more joyful person with a more positive outlook on life.

Laughter Helps in Cancer Prevention

Laughter Yoga works with the breath to open up to fuller and healthier breathing.

Dr. Otto Warburg, the President of the Institute of Cell Physiology and two times a Nobel Prize winner, says this:

“Deep breathing techniques increase oxygen to the cells and are the most important factors in living a disease-free and energetic life. When the cells get enough oxygen, cancer will not and cannot occur.

In fact, Laughter Yoga was inspired by a response to disease by an enlightened patient.

Founder Dr. Madan Kataria read about Norman Cousins who laughed himself back to health.

Cousins was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis, a painful form of arthritis.

Many die from this disease. The pain can be so great that sleep can become impossible.

Cousins decided to go out laughing!

So, he brought in Marx Brothers movies into his hospital room and started laughing.

Norman Cousins laughed himself back to health

From Wikipedia:

“Told that he had little chance of surviving, Cousins developed a recovery program incorporating megadoses of Vitamin C, along with a positive attitude, love, faith, hope, and laughter induced by Marx Brothers films.

 

“I made the joyous discovery that ten minutes of genuine belly laughter had an anesthetic effect and would give me at least two hours of pain-free sleep,” he reported. “When the pain-killing effect of the laughter wore off, we would switch on the motion picture projector again and not infrequently, it would lead to another pain-free interval.”

So, Laughter Yoga reduces pain, and…

Laughter is the # 1 stress buster.

Stress is said to be the number One killer.

Laughter is the number one stress buster!

You too, can have the healing effects of laughter….on a daily basis. Here’s how:

About your instructor:

 

Matti Anttila CLYT (Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher)is the author of “The Zen of Joy” and “108 Tips for More Joy, Energy and Health.”

 

Background:

“Life is a grand adventure or it’s nothing.” -Helen Keller

 

Long before I read that quote, I decided not to go a traditional route.

 

Working hard to age 65, retiring exhausted and then dying shortly thereafter was not an appealing career path.

 

Thus, I pursued a number of opportunities as they came up: Promoting rock and roll performances, driving taxi, Disc Jockey, radio reporter and talk show host.

 

I have owned a bakery and restaurant, been a financial planner, baby photographer and most recently a consultant.

 

My most passionate interest is in health, fitness, longevity and human potential.

 

It seems many of us humans only realize a small portion of our full potential.

 

Hence, Laughter Yoga, which can help to free us of many of the blocks to creativity and our potential.

 

Studies: Judo, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, meditation, massage, dancing, Ashtanga Yoga, herbology, VitaFlex, Aikido, Rebirthing, Reiki, singing, Tai Chi, Qigong, natural healing, 4 Minute Fitness, Laughter Yoga, Hot Yoga, The Presence Process, Ho’Oponopono and Huna.

Love, Leaps and Laughter,

Matti

P.S #1: It’s possible that you may have some lingering feeling of guilt about feeling good. That’s understandable when so many suffer. After all, there are wars, famine, environmental degradation and a host of ills we read and hear about daily. However, the latest scientific studies show that we may have our best chance of addressing the challenges of the modern world by first being happy.

 

For example, Shawn Achor, in his book The Happiness Advantage, quotes studies showing that doctors make 19% fewer errors in diagnosis when they are happy, there is a 31% boost in productivity in workers who are happy, administrative personnel have 19% fewer mistakes when they are happier and salespeople make 37% more sales in a happy state.  So, it turns out your best chance of really making a difference in this world may well be focusing on your own happiness or joy first.

 

This is not to say that we should become selfish in a way that excludes others. As you will learn in one of the protocols, the process of giving to others is one of the sure-fire ways to quickly increase our own joy.

 

P.S. #2:

Thanks again for an unforgettable weekend! Laughingly yours,

Natalia”  – Natalia Burns, Victoria, BC, Canada

“Laughter Yoga has affirmed by belief that laughter can heal; it is a comfort to the soul and can change your world if you choose to look at with different eyes and engage your innate sense of humour. It has inspired me to try laughing at my most trying moments.” -Lindsay Korns. Easter Seals CampShawnigan.

“Laughter Yoga has inspired me to try and laugh more after daily situations that may normally make me feel frustrated. After the session I felt rejuvenated, light, content, balanced and at peace with myself. I hope to remember this experience and use what I learned to increase my general level of happiness.   – Katie Thompson. Easter Seals CampShawnigan.

“This experience made me feel so connected to my body and emotions as well as all the people around me. I felt energized, joyful, and positive at the end of the session. I would love to do this again! –Michelle Leach. Easter Seals CampShawnigan.

“After one session of Laughter Yoga I felt grounded, inspired and emotionally at ease. Everyone should take the time to laugh and there are few better ways to do so than with Laughter Yoga.” -Dave Hall. Easter Seals CampShawnigan.

“Hahaha! Laughter Yoga is wild energy full of many emotions! I’ve never really experienced yoga to this degree of connectedness with my community. I felt very balanced and happy, my spirits were flying, my soul was at peace, and my belly hurt with happy pains. Thank you for sharing laughs, smiles.” –Navi Bhatti. Easter Seals CampShawnigan. P.S. I’m also interested in the leader training.

A mirror can only reflect what is in front of it.

What if?

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.

One of the great “Open Secrets:” This life is about giving…not receiving!

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

Pains get smaller or vanish.

What if?

You could have that experience EVERY DAY?

 

What if?

You could help others change their world?

You can…as a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader (CLYL). As a CLYL, you lead others in a laughter session and you get DOUBLE BENEFITS!

Laughter Yoga:

 

Is efficient exercise (One minute of hearty laughter is equal to 10 minutes of rowing or jogging -Dr. W. Fry, Journal of General Psychology, 1938)

 

Is the most fun you can have standing up (subjective opinion)

 

Feels good (as reported by many laughers around the world)

 

Improves circulation (movement of the diaphragm causes more oxygen to be sent to the cells)

 

Boosts the immune system (as most exercise does really)

 

Stimulates digestion and internal organs (although if you’re busting a gut and rolling around on the floor, that’s the last thing you’ll be thinking about)

 

Helps with pain management (you may still have the pain, but you may be too busy laughing to think about it)

 

Slows the aging process (if you’re laughing, it means you’re still alive)

 

Smooths out wrinkles (maybe…I’ve still got mine…but I don’t care!)

 

Improves breathing (not sure about this one, sometimes it’s hard to catch my breath when I’m laughing so hard)

 

Makes you beautiful (hey, everyone is beautiful when they smile or laugh)

 

Makes you rich! (not really, but sometimes we can’t imagine how any rich person could possibly feel better than we do after a laughter session!)

 

Isn’t that enough already? What, you want it to cure cancer too? Well, as a matter of fact, read this quote from Dr. Otto Warburg, president of the Institute for Cell Physiology, and twice a Nobel Prize winner:

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 italics)

First, you get all the benefits of Laughter Yoga:

Second, you get the benefit of helping others “plug in” to their “Inner Joy.”

And, this is huge…and addictive, I must inform you.

To be in the presence of others who are opening up to:

* Their “Child-like Nature,”

* Their “Inner Laughter,”

* Their “Divine Essence,”

* Their “Automatic Healer” and more…

It is an awesome experience.

Each and every week, I look forward to leading a Laughter Yoga class.

Each and every week, I am blessed to activate my “Inner Healer” as my fellow laughers teach me more about myself…in a gentle and loving and non-competitive way.

Now, You Too Can Have This. As a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader.

Be awesome!

Matti Anttila, Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher, and author of The Zen of Joy and 108 Tips for More Joy, Energy and Health.

P.S. Can Rewiring Your Brain really be this easy? As easy as falling in love? Yes! It really is just easily changing some habits. I did it. So, there is no reason that you can’t too. When I “plugged into” this set of habits, I wanted others to have this bliss too. That’s why I am including The Zen of Joy protocols in the Certified Laughter Yoga Leader training.

P.S. #2: This is your chance to use a system that can transform your life. A system you can use on yourself, time and time again. But space is limited, so register now.

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:
