Laughter Yoga Northridge meets at my home twice a month — generally the first Monday night and third Thursday night.  If you are local, go to and join or call me at 818-368-3375 for more information.  We would love to laugh with you!


Laughter Yoga Northridge & Paint Your Essence are getting together to present a fun Play-Shop where we will explore the freedom to go outside the box.

Both laughter and art create the space for genuine experiences that help release stress and leave room for more creativity, imagination and excitement.

We will experiment with laughter exercises to release the ego or critical mind that can hold us back from expressing ourselves. We will discover through art how to set our preconceived expectations aside.

Combining these two processes will give us the freedom to think and create outside the box.

Get ready for some fun surprises! Come join us…

Next event TBA – If would like to attend a Laughter and Creativity Workshop, let me know and I can schedule a date convenient to you and your friends!

This is such a fun playshop and I am really excited and hope you can join us!

Laughter can help clear out the cobwebs and open up creativity.

You know how energized and joyful you feel after a Laughter Yoga session.

This playshop adds another dimension with exercises incorporating laughter, play, expression, spontaneity and movement that will bring the pure joy that comes from the creative process. You might be totally surprised at how creative you really are or how creative you can be in ways you hadn’t yet imagined.


Let me know when you are available and we will schedule a time that is convenient for both of us.   This is a today training.  Both days are 9 am to 5 pm. Lunch is included.

Program Description:

Madan Kataria, MD, started the first laughter club in India in 1995. Through his research, Dr. Kataria discovered that the mind does not know how to differentiate between fake and genuine laughter—either way it produces happy chemistry. The Laughter Yoga technique blends yogic deep breathing, stretching, simulated laughter exercises and cultivated child-like playfulness.

The Laughter Yoga Leader Training teaches the physiology of laughter and its many health benefits, how to start and run laughter yoga groups, special techniques for diverse populations, how to use and teach laughter as a coping skill and life skill and the structure, norms, counter-indications, and logistics of a laughter yoga club.

After successful completion of this course, you will be qualified as a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader (CLYL) through Laughter Yoga International University, an internationally recognized certification. As a CLYL, you can lead Laughter Club sessions in social clubs and senior centers, offer Laughter Club classes at yoga & fitness centers, present Laughter Club workshops in schools or businesses and integrate Laughter Club into your own business practice, instruction or healing modality.

Who Should Attend:

This training enriches health and fitness teachers, management/human resource professionals, medical professionals, psychologists, social workers, eldercare workers, life coaches, entertainment professionals, alternative therapists and healers, complementary therapists and anyone wanting to add more laughter to their lives and the lives of others.


As a participant, you will be able to
●●understand the scientific research and physical, mental, and emotional benefits of happiness, laughter, and Laughter Yoga;
●●understand how to use and teach simple exercises and techniques (including deep breathing, meditation, visualization, relaxation, playful activities) to increase joy and health and decrease stress;
●●organize and lead laughter programs for individuals and diverse groups including healthcare staff and patients, seniors, children, and corporations.

Registration Fee: $300.00.   Lunch, a manual and other goodies provided on both days.
