Laughter Yoga combines playful easy laughter exercises with some yogic breathing. After laughing and playing with this fabulous group, you will leave energized and relaxed. Lift your mood, reduce stress, lower blood pressure and boost your immune system while you have fun. How cool is that!

The Oakland LIfefire Laughter Club was started in 2007 by Annie Goglia, a certified Laughter Yoga Teacher and Life Coach. Annie loves to share her laughter with others with an open heart. She was trained by the founder of Laughter Yoga, Dr. Madan Kataria, an MD from India in 1995. There are now over 6000 Laughter Clubs in over 60 countries around the world spreading peace and joy through laughter!

For more information, see this wonderful article about laughter as therapy in Oakland Magazine, featuring the Oakland Lifefire Laughter Club: www.oaklandmagazine.com/media/Oakland-Magazine/July-August-2009/Therapy.

No mats needed. Adults and older teens of all levels of physically fitness are welcome. Wear comfortable clothing for easier laughing.

Laughing with others is priceless. The Oakland Lifefire Laughter Club is a sliding scale of $10-20 to cover costs.

This laughter club meets every other Monday, except major holidays. For first quarter 2015, we will meet 2nd and 4th Mondays.

Our group has been meeting since January 2007.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
