Ten Years of Laughter Yoga, A Celebration. Victoria Laughter News November 30, 2018

December 6th 2018 mark my 10 anniversary of being certified as  CLYT (Certified Laughter Yoga Leaer).

 

To mark the occasion, we will have a special Laughter Yoga session on Wednesday, December 5th at our usual venue.

 

Soren hosts the weekly sessions at his Inspiration Lounge at 1230 St. Patrick Street in Oak Bay.

 

I hope you can make it. It would be great to see some of you who have not made it recently.

 

Lots of laughter, of course. Also some sharing about the lessons learned during the decade of laughter.

 

One I can tell you about now: Laughing for a minimum of 10 minutes daily has been a “game-changer.” It has helped to keep the stresses and tensions of every day life at bay.

 

Laughter Yoga has also led to research (fun learnings) into other areas of self-development.

 

A Joyous Time Guaranteed for all. If you don’t get joyous, I will give you double your misery back…ha ha.

 

Hope to see you at 7pm this Wednesday.

Matti Anttila

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:
