New Certified Laughter Yoga Leaders


“I didn’t think laughter was going to be so spiritual.” -Maddy Barber, Certified Laughter Yoga Leader


Please help me to congratulate our two newest Certified Laughter Yoga Leaders, Maddy Barber and Eric Bourgault.


They trained with me this weekend and, in fact, co-led the Sunday morning Laughter Yoga Session at Sunrise Senior Living. AND they did a fabulous job on their first leading gig. Well done to both.


We had an awesome time. It is highly energizing to take the training. Also inspirational. Laughter Yoga is such a blessing. Endless gratitude to founder Dr. Madan Kataria.


If you or anyone you know has an interest in becoming a leader, I invite you to talk to myself or to Eric and/or Maddy about their experience. AND about their plans to take Laughter Yoga leading forward in their lives.



Laughter Yoga tonight at Ingredients Health Food and Apple Cafe at 2031 Store Street (just down the road and across the street from Capital Iron.) We will be upstairs from 6.45pm to 7.45pm. Suggested donation $5 – $15.


Remember also Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. See here for more:

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:
