Laughter Yoga for Better Sleeps.

 

Last night, I discovered another use/benefit to Laughter Yoga. We had a great evening with friends over for din-dins and then watched the Olympics opening ceremony and the qualifiers for the snowboarders. (wow…amazing what they do!).

 

Connecting with friends is always awesome. After I put down my nightly reading book and settling in to go to sleep, I spontaneously started laughing.

 

As you may know, us Laughter Yoga types can and often do laugh for no reason. There was no reason for me to laugh, but it felt great so I continued on. It was only about 5 minutes or so but I fell asleep quite readily. When I awoke I felt refreshed.

 

Mental note to myself: must do this more often. J

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:
