Laugh Your Way to Joy. This Sunday, May 4th is World Laughter Day.


Here in Victoria, we celebrate by getting together and holding an outdoor Laughter Yoga Session.

Bring your family and friends. Children welcome. They are great Laughter Leaders. One of the goals of Laughter Yoga is accessing our inner childlike playfulness.

Extreme Makeover for Mustard Seed Food Bank and Street Church.


The venerable and valuable food bank Mustard Seed is getting an “Extreme Makeover.”


This is the initiative of Paul Latour who has done two other makeovers, one of which I volunteered for. And what an amazing feeling that was.


Here is the video he put together: He calls it “Hero Work.” Many individuals and numerous companies are participating.


All for now,


Love and laughter






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:
