Laughter in the Park for Summer. Victoria Laughter News. May 14, 2014

NEW! Laughter in the Park for summer.


Sundays at 10.30am by the sun dial in Beacon Hill Park. Our fearless Laughter Yoga Leader Miho loved laughing in the rain so much, she wants to continue. So she sparked us other less adventurous Leaders to come-on-down to the park on Sundays.


So, for the rest of the summer, we will be there every Sunday. Come join us. Rain or shine, says Miho. What Laughter Spirit she has. 🙂

Laugh daily with Matti.


Laughter is really a necessary daily nutrient. It may be why children are healthier than adults…they laugh more J. Laugh along with me every day, if you choose:


You will see it on the right side of the page as the “Authentic Joy” video.





Laughter Can Bring Same Benefits as Meditation?           


Have you been thinking about starting a meditation practice?


If you are having a challenge beginning, why not try Laughter Yoga. It has been shown to put the brain in the same state as meditation.


AND it’s easy and fun. It just might be the ticket to jump start your meditation practice. It worked for me. I laugh daily now and weekly at Laughter Yoga class AND I meditate daily…twice a day!


Have a read and then come on in to Laughter Yoga. We’re friendly and we don’t bite. 🙂





Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it. -Bill Cosby


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:
