Everyone loves a good laugh! Whether it’s the sneaky chuckle at another LOLCat sweeping down on your faceache feed; or the gut busting belly acher! Like the day my brother David suddenly realised why people were stifling fits of giggles! He’d been drinking a Christmas pint for the previous 20 minutes with our Dad’s false teeth sneaked into his beer when he’s gone to the loo! His face, when he spotted the pink and white plate sloshing around in the bottom of his glass, had 20 family members of all ages absolutely rolling on the floor and almost wetting themselves!
We can’t promise rolling on the floor merriment but Carlisle Laughter Yoga & Happiness Club with Laughter Aspirations, is coming to Stanwix Community Centre!

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions
Laughter Yoga, a genuinely rowdy version of the calming activity, was an idea by cardiologist Dr Madan Kataria around 1995. Since then it’s been accepted worldwide and has even made it onto the stage of a TEDX Talk. Laughter is initiated as an exercise in groups. It simply sets you off laughing with good humour but no jokes or comedy. It is not offensive and is suitable for all ages and abilities.
Here’s Hugh McLelland, American TV producer and Laughter Yoga Leader, giving the TedX Laughter Yoga Talk.
