WHAT! You haven’t laughed heartily (long and hard) for OVER A WEEK?? Laughter, the Newsletter Feb 26, 2014

WHAT! You haven’t laughed heartily (long and hard) for OVER A WEEK??

You poor thing.

Don’t worry.

We can fix that.

Come along to Laughter Yoga this Friday (the 28th) 7-8pm at Heart of the Village Yoga Studio.

We’ll make sure you get your fair share of laughter, your laughter Quotient…for that day anyway.

You see, laughter really is a necessary nutrient.

Just like with vitamin C for example, if you don’t get it for one day, you don’t notice much.

But, if you consistently don’t get vitamin C, you get scurvy!

Same with laughter. Only a lack of laughter may cause hardening of attitudes, lack of flexibility, build up of stress and a host of other “conditions.”

Long term you are in danger of becoming a “sourpuss.”

We don’t want that now, do we?

So save yourself from a fate worse than rotting fruit.

Cure the later winter blahs and get energized. Oh yes, laughter is great aerobic exercise as well.

Friday Feb 28 7-8pm. It’s free or by donation…suggested $5 to $15.

P.S. Oak Bay Avenue is closed from Oliver to Mitchell, so leave early to get there on time…although we have never turned away late arrivals.

It’s just that you will want to extract maximum value from your Laughter Yoga Experience.

It will be sweetness itself to laugh with you on Friday. 🙂

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:
