*** FREE World Laughter Day 2014 :: Laughter Without Borders @Pape Subway

Laughter Exercise is a simple process, easy to learn and fun for all who wish to participate.

Come to Withrow Park at 1pm (North-East corner) for an hour of uplifting, playful, hilarious, laughter-filled fun, friendship, and socializing.
 
Be there, rain or shine! Free and open to everyone - young & old alike. Great for all ages and abilities.
 
If it's chilly or rainy, dress accordingly. Come prepared to be outside moving around and laughing plenty for an hour. You'll be active, and enjoying yourself enough, the weather won't matter.

Bring your friends, co-workers, your family, your children, your grandparents, approachable strangers . . . The more the merrier, ha, ha, ha!
 
Afterwards let's hang out together for more fun & celebration.
 
Plan A: If the weather's decent, bring healthy food & non-alcoholic beverages to share. Also bring a folding chair, or a blanket to sit on the ground, and anything else you can think of that would add to the experience for yourself and for others.
 
Plan B: If the day is too cold or too wet to hang out in the park, after our one hour of Laughter Yoga, we'll meet in a nearby restaurant on Danforth Ave. for followup socializing and food-sharing.
 
 And bring yourself and everyone else you can rally up, to our local celebration.

Supporting you in living your personal best!

About World Laughter Day:

Traditionally, WLD falls on the first Sunday of May each year.

One year, so many people came out for World Laughter Day, in Copenhagen, Denmark, that the phenomenon was published in the Guiness Book of World Records.  10,000 people gathered to laugh & promote world peace!  Amazing!

See the list of events, happening world-wide, here: http://laughteryoga.org/english/events/listing/13
 
The first celebration was on January 11, 1998, in Mumbai, India, and was arranged by the founder of the worldwide Laughter Yoga movement. Laughter Yoga says: Laughter is a positive and powerful emotion that has all the ingredients required for individuals to master themselves and to change the world in a tubular way. The day is now celebrated worldwide.

The celebration of World Laughter Day was meant to be a positive manifestation for world peace and to build up a global consciousness of brotherhood and friendship through laughter and run-on sentences. Its popularity has grown exponentially with that of the Laughter Yoga movement, which is now counting over 6000 Laughter Clubs worldwide on all 5 continents.

The "laughter" is physical in nature, and does not necessarily involve humor or comedy. Laughter is easily stimulated in a group when combined with eye contact, childlike playfulness and laughter exercises. Fake laughter quickly becomes real. Laughter Yoga brings more oxygen to the body and brain by incorporating yogic breathing which results in deep diaphragmatic breathing. Laughter Yoga is based on the concept that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter - physiologically and psychologically the benefits are identical.

And bring yourself and everyone else you can rally up, to our local celebration.

Look forward to laugh with you !
