The Ferntree Gully Laughter Club Meets:

11am on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month and at four libraries in the Knox municipality, as seen below.

The Ferntree Gully Laughter Club has been going for 19 years and is a free community Laughter Yoga club. The laughter club movement founder, Dr Kataria has a motto “World Peace Through Laughter”.  We practice Laughter Yoga, which is a combination of laughter exercises and deep breathing. People who attend regularly take the spirit of laughter with them and find their sense of humour becomes sharper, they feel great, full of joy and energised. It is transformative in people’s lives and we would love you to join us there.

We meet in person on the 2nd and 4th Sundays at 11am behind the Ferntree Gully Library, near the rotunda, 1010 Burwood Highway, Ferntree Gully. In inclement weather, you will find us behind the library, on the decking. It is for half an hour, followed by attending a local café for a coffee and chat.

Is it your first time? Contact me please, in case there is a change of time and for the library sessions, contact the individual library or book online to attend.

Ferntree Gully laughter club, friendships, laughter, 2nd and 4th sundays

You will find our laughter club to be a spontaneous session, with set laughs as well breaking out into playful fun, in the moment stuff. Each time we laugh, sing and dance as these three help create new brain pathways. Laughter is an aerobic exercise, which is energising and does help one to let go of inhibitions, getting many out of the comfort zone. It’s recommended to give it a good try, come along for two or three sessions before deciding whether to make it a habit, or otherwise.

John’s experience is that he becomes energised and says come along if you agree that getting out of your comfort zone can be good for you. John shares: I love it. Sometimes I go there feeling flat and don’t really feel like laughing and when I finish, I feel great. Yay for the transformational power of laughter!

Here is one for you: My feedback to Lynette was, she brought great fun to all of us. Especially since I have not played as a girl for a while. She reminded us that there was no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ in laughing and playing, as we all knew how to laugh. We forgot as we were held up by other matters only. Thanks for Lynette’s work. Doris Chan.
