Laughter Kills & There’s Laughter Tonight & Sing Yourself Alive. Victoria Laughter News Sept. 17, 2014

There’s Laughter Tonight


There’ll be a hot time in the ol’ town tonight. Ol’ Town Victoria. Store Street to be more specific.


To be precise: 2031 Store Street (just down the road and across the street from Capital Iron.) We will be upstairs from 6.45pm to 7.45pm. LAUGHTER YOGA lifts the roof again.


Oh, the place is called Ingredients Health Food and Apple Cafe at 2031 Store Street. (Thanks to Cindy and all the stakeholders at Ingredients for hosting us. It has been and continues to be a total joy being in that space.)


See you (and laugh with you) there.


“If you are too busy to laugh, you are too busy.”

Get Trained as a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader (CLYL)

Raise your hand if you love Laughter Yoga.


Raise your hand again if you would like to lead a LY club.


If that is you, get trained to be the “spark plug” for leading a group. CLYLs will tell ya: There is no better feeling than being the cause of laughter and smiles in those around you.


Just listen to what Hermann Luvstolaff says about his CLYL experience: “There is no better feeling for me than being the cause of laughter and smiles in those around me.”


(Note: totally unsolicited testimonial. Void where prohibited by law. Objects in mirror may be larger than they appear. Close cover before striking.)


If you would love that feeling, get trained. Just say “YES” in an email to me to get the full details by return mail

(email that is, snail mail is too slow nowadays. I just sent a card to a friend on the mainland and it came back to my address. No notations of any sort. The stamp wasn’t even cancelled. I just reposted today. We will see if it bounces again. Canada Post seems to be taking a page out of internet servers playbook and learning how to bounce mail for no reason 🙂 )


This is the email Send YES in the subject line for full details.

(Well, kind of full details…don’t have a date set yet…nor a place. This all depends on who and how many respond….well alright, not FULL details, just preliminary details. Well, full except for date and location. Still and all, it will give you everything else you need to know about CLYL training.)


Anyway email me now for info:

Victoria Laughter Yoga Clubs
Laughter Yoga is the unique concept that we can laugh for no reason at all.
* Laughter exercises send endorphins (feel good hormones) to the brain.
* Yoga breathing: more oxygen to brain and body equals:
* Feeling healthier and more energetic.
* Sessions are led by a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader.
* Non-profit, non-religious, non-political.

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:
