When Does the Laughter Club Meet?
1st & 3rd Sunday @ 11:00 am using Zoom
2nd, 4th & 5th Sunday @ 11am in person
The Ferntree Gully Laughter Club has been going for 16 years and is a free community Laughter Yoga club. The laughter club movement founder, Dr Kataria encourages them to be voluntary and help in promoting world peace through the power of laughing together. We practice Laughter Yoga, which is laughter exercises combined with 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 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 cafe for a coffee and chat
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!
