The celebration of World Laughter Day is a positive manifestation for world peace and is intended to build up a global consciousness of brotherhood and friendship through laughter. Its popularity has grown exponentially with that of the Laughter Yoga movement now counting thousands of Laughter Clubs in more than 100 countries.

What is a Laughter Club session like? Robert Rivest's laughter sessions begins with mindful breathing, easy flowing movements, and a few fun vocal warm-ups. This leads to a series of playful, interactive, laugh inducing exercises (that can easily be adapted to fit your abilities, mood or energy level). Our group Laughter is joyfully simulated with full body laughter exercises, clapping, eye contact and youthful playfulness. The simulated laughter soon turns into real and contagious laughter that lifts our spirits, connects us, and carries over into our every day lives. After the exercises we do a little "free laughter" and end with a few peaceful moments of guided relaxation.
No yoga mat, or flexibility needed . . .
just wear comfortable clothing and a smile:)
