Toronto recently played host to the first Laughter Yoga Show in Ontario. A new initiative, delivering a one day presentation on the various aspects of Laughter Yoga to a participating audience with opportunity for meeting local members of Laughter Yoga International.
Approximately seventy people were in attendance for the Show at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Front Street in the heart of downtown Toronto. For many, this was their first experience of Laughter Yoga, and the response was enthusiastic.
Laughter sessions, including an international session in various languages, were interspersed with presentations on: Laughter Yoga in Business, with Seniors, with Children, for Special Needs, and a special presentation on Incorporating Laughter Yoga into a Workplace Wellness Program.
Several friends of Laughter Yoga provided additional features including; a drumming circle, a fun photo booth, an introduction to partner assisted meditation practice, a hilarious networking game introduced by Pankaj Sachdeva and a Kirtan musical performance by Ananda.
A full list of presenters and program schedule is available for viewing online at www.LaughterOntario.ca - this dedicated site is for information on various events, courses and happenings relevant to Laughter Yoga in Ontario. A Facebook group is also linked in where Laughter Yoga practitioners are invited to post and connect.
Overall, the Show was a great success with initial feedback being very positive. A revised and condensed version is now being formulated for introducing Laughter Yoga to various towns and cities across the province.
Laughter Yoga is working for health in Ontario.
