Our club is the oldest recurring Laughter Club in Portland, OR. We meet Sundays at 4 pm for an hour in the Hawthorne Movement Center, behind the Hawthorne Wellness Center. Please enter in the back (separate from & behind the main wellness center). It is a beautiful studio, right next to the Chase Bank on the corner and looking out on a lovely garden.
The HLC is the main hub for the growing Portland Laughter Community. We have walked in the Portland Rose Festival’s Starlight Parade five times. In addition to the Sunday club, we host a myriad of laughter related events like Laughter Meditations and Gibberish gatherings.
We provide a unique group setting where you can practice being playful to enhance your physical health and mental well-being. Our club is truly a community club. It is co-led by several Laughter Yoga Leaders of varying backgrounds and experiences. Member feedback is highly prized. We strive to make our club a safe and comfortable space for everyone.
If you want to ensure that club is happening before you visit, please check Meetup. We rarely cancel, but if we do it is usually due to inclement weather and we always announce it through Meetup.
The Hawthorne Laughter Club, originally the Belmont Laughter Club, began in the Spring of 2010. The child of Molly and Jamie from PLAY (Portland Laughter and Yoga), the club was an immediate success and was even visited by OPB on World Laughter Day in May 2010. By summer of 2010 the club was losing it’s faithful leaders due to work conflicts, but others from the Portland laughter community banded together to keep the club going. Then in fall 2010, the club had to change locations. After finding a new location and beginning again in January of 2011, we are still in business more than 7 years later at the Hawthorne Wellness Center Movement Studio! We average 6-15 laughers each week! Join manager & Laughter Yoga Teacher Andrea, Laughter Yoga Leader Stephen, and various guest leaders at our current location, the Hawthorne Movement Center (behind the Hawthorne Wellness Center), Sundays from 4-5 pm. Very good, very good, yay!
