But seriously…just kidding, Laughter Yogis are never serious…we are sincere, but not serious. Ha ha.

Laughter Yoga and MS


Had a chat with Professor Gavin Giovannoni of Neuroscience at Queen Mary’s University of London at the MS Life 2012 event in Manchester today because one of my questions regarding MS which I first raised back in 2008 was regarding the T-Cells we produce when laughing, in MS the T-Cells turn on our immune system (which they are in fact part of) and attack the brain cells… Well, my question was what happens when producing more T-Cells, will more of them go bad and attack our central nervous system? To which he responded that there are different types of T-Cells and the ones we produce through strengthening our immune system with laughter may in fact have a very good effect on the bad ones and reduce these and in essence the effect of bad T-Cells… Nice to know from a neuroscience specialist – good thing is that we already knew this through Madan Kataria’s work with people living with MS ♥ Woohoooooo! I love Laughter Yoga ♥

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:
