Laughter is really a necessary daily nutrient. It may be why children are healthier than adults…they laugh more.

Laugh along with me every day, if you choose:

Smoking is a habit which causes a lot of stress and health-related challenges. However, smoking used to be considered something de-stressing for the
person inhaling the fumes. As calming as it may seem to the person who smokes, we probably all know of the dangers of smoking… So how come, with
so many techniques and tools to help people quit, how come there are still so many people who smoke?
Perhaps there hasn’t been a true remedy to heal the need? How about trying Laughter Yoga as a means to stop smoking? People have started laughing on
a daily basis and have given up smoking in the process. Contact me to learn how this is possible

Just For Fun

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:
