How Self-Initiated Laughter Can Make You Feel Better

Laughter triggers a chain reaction that

can make you happier and healthier.

 

by Christopher Bergland, son of the researcher Richard Bergland, M.D who inspired Norman Cousins to write his book: Anatomy of an Illness.

 

That, in turn, was the inspiration for Dr. Madan Kataria to found Laughter Yoga.

 

“Cousins describes how he stumbled on the health benefits of laughing,

 

“I made the joyous discovery that ten minutes of genuine belly laughter had an anesthetic effect and would give me at least two hours of pain-free sleep. When the pain-killing effect of the laughter wore off, I would switch on the motion picture projector again [to watch Marx Brothers movies] and not infrequently, it would lead to another pain-free interval.” “

What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul!

“Laughter is too important to be left to chance. …”

 

All for now,

Love, Laughter and Smiles

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:
