TOMORROW! World Laughter Day in Victoria. Victoria Laughter News May 5, 2018


All around the world as well. That’s why it’s called WORLD Laughter Day.

Ha ha.

Enjoy it to the fullest with the Victoria Laughter Yoga Club.


10:30am…come on now, it is NOT too early…I know it’ s Sunday and all…


But get to bed a wee earlier tonight and yes, you too can do it. J


World Laughter Day only comes around once a year…


(I know, I know…we often have Victoria Laughter Day in September, but that’s a different issue)


Beacon Hill Park…we are by the sundial in the centre of the park.


No fees, just fun and frolic (2 outa 3 ain’t bad…in fact it’s good…)


We do Laughter “exercises” and often that turns into real laughter, but…


Drum roll…


It doesn’t matter. Even if you just “fake it” you get the same endorphin rush.


(Endorphins are one of the feel-good hormones…makes you feel good…)


So…laugh, feel good, get connected with some fine folks in the Laughter community…


Laughter is the shortest distance between people. Ask me tomorrow and I will tell you who said that…


So COME ON DOWN…enjoy some laughs…hey, if you go to a comedy club, that works too…but it’s just not the same as doing it in the friendly nature of Beacon Hill Park…


So, whadya say? Are you in?


Hope so…

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:
