The Deni Laughter Club was recently established as a Community Group after the founder, Lesley
Hills, was introduced to laughter yoga 12 months ago. Over the past year she attended a number of
laughter sessions and felt this could really make a difference to the Deniliquin community, which led
her to do the Laughter Yoga Leader training.
Laughter Yoga has been around for almost 25 years, established in Mumbai in India by a medical
Doctor (Madan Kataria) who was undertaking research on the health benefits of laughter. There are
now laughter clubs in more than 100 countries worldwide. Laughter Yoga is a process where
participants practice simulated laughter exercises, yogic breathing and relaxation. A sustained
period of laughter releases the feel good chemicals of Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin and
Endorphines into our bodies and in so doing boosts the immune system, regulates blood flow,
oxygen to the brain, appetite, mood swings and can in some cases ease depression and anxiety. The
aim of the session is to have fun, be playful and to allow members to forget their everyday worries
for that hour. A bonus is that they don’t even have to practice any complicated yoga positions!!
The Club meets every Wednesday evening from 6.30-7.30pm at Intereach Community Centre,
Trickett Street, with a gold coin donation to meet the cost of room hire and insurance. New
members are always welcome to come and give it a try. If you’d like any further information, please
