Laughter Yoga on the Radio. Matti’s Victoria Newsletter June 8, 2016

Neat Stuff For My Greater Victoria Friends, Fiends And Roustabouts.


Victoria in summer. Who could ask for more?



Laughter Yoga on the Radio


CFAX had me on Joe Perkins’ noon hour  program to talk about it. Here is the broadcast. Laughter Yoga starts at 32.30 minutes:


Laughter Yoga continues through the summer. Sunday at the sundial in Beacon Hill Park 10.30am, Monday at VIHA on Fraser Street in Esquimalt 4.30pm and 5.30 pm on Wednesdays at Ingredients Community Market on Store Street across from Capital Iron.





Moss Street Market has always been a delight. And it sure is busy, whew. Beer and wine and cider now too. I like Evelyn’s meat market at the end. And the new guy who sells coconut oil…made in Victoria. Check out the music, as well.




Talking of market, Wednesdays 4-8.30pm at 2827 Belmont has the Oaklands market. Kale chocolate cookies for a good cause.



If you have an event you want me to include, see the submission guidelines at the bottom



Dan’s Farm and Country Market is unique. 2030 Bear Hill Road at Oldfield. Not too far and, while produce is not marked organic, it is not sprayed and a good price…broccoli $1.99 a pound.




If you are on Facebook, join the group Ridiculously Cheap Stuff in Victoria where members share deals around town.





“When we open to our potential, the world changes…

dramatically and for the better.”




Love, Laughter and Smiles,

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:
