What we're about

I created this group for people who would love to know how to laugh easily, be relaxed and comfortable with others, to loosen up, feel light and free and have some fun that isn't at anyone else's expense. This is a safe, supportive place to come out and be yourself, free of judgment, criticism or sexual innuendos. Sadly, I used to let life get the better of me, so much so, I wasn't laughing anymore. I spent way too much time feeling lonely, sad, depressed, miserable, and down-trodden. Thanks to an impromptu encounter with the creator of Laughter Yoga 10 years ago, that all changed. Laughter comes so easily now I've even been named the Laughing Champion of Toronto, 3 times, haa, haa! So if laughing yourself into a joyFULL, alive state of happiness and health appeals to you, then I'm here to cheerfully cheer you on!!! Lynn, Lively & Laughing :) :) :)
