World Laughter Day, 20th Anniversary of Laughter Yoga THIS SUNDAY

The first Sunday of May every year is World Laughter Day. That means THIS Sunday.

 

Two locations:

 

10:30am at Beacon Hill Park, by the sundial across from the washrooms. (Not the sundial at the top of the hill, which I did not know or remember about until Marc from CHEK TV when there yesterday looking for us.)

 

AND

 

1:30pm at Windsor Park on Windsor Road in Oak Bay.

 

Come on out to one or both of these and help us celebrate.

CHEK TV coverage of our Sunday morning Laughter Yoga session

 

I made a mistake and sent out the News Release early, saying World Laughter Day was “this Sunday.” CHEK TV, being such a great local station, came to cover it…one week early. (OH NO, I made a mistake!)

 

You can see the coverage here…starts about 13 minutes 10 seconds in to the newscast. http://www.cheknews.ca/5pm-newscast-april-26-2015-85482

Laughter Yoga is the unique concept that we can laugh for no reason at all.
* Laughing is FUN

 

* We start out with laughter exercises

> That sends feel good hormones to the brain.

 

* We  intersperse with yoga type deep breathing

> That sends more oxygen to the brain and body
* We add child-like playfulness

> That opens up our creativity and intuition

 

* We do “Laughter Meditation”

> Unlike any other meditation, way fun

 

* We finish with some relaxation routines.

 

* Sessions are led by a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader.
>  Non-profit, non-religious, non-political.

 

* Free or by donation

> Don’t let money hold you back

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:
