Laugh At Yourself. Victoria Laughter News July 12, 2017

“Laugh at yourself and at life. Not in the spirit of derision or whining self-pity, but as a remedy, a miracle drug, that will ease your pain, cure your depression, and help you to put in perspective that seemingly terrible defeat and worry with laughter at your predicaments, thus freeing your mind to think clearly toward the solution that is certain to come. Never take yourself too seriously.” -Og Mandino 1923-1996, Author of The Choice

 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Laughter is a great stress release. It is one of the reasons we scheduled a Laughter Yoga session for Wednesday. Midway through the week is a great time to laugh for no reason.

 

Relieve the stress of work, get recharged and revivified (Is that even a word?).

 

You know what I mean. Come on out and have a good time.

 

Remember what 97-year-old Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara said: “You get your energy from feeling good.”

 

Laughter Yoga is a great way to get feeling good.

 

5.30 tonight and every Wednesday. Willows Beach in Oak Bay. By the parking lot.

> 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.

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:
