Welcome to the Laughter Institute!

Laughter Yoga is a unique concept where anyone can laugh without a reason. We don’t rely on sense of humour, jokes or comedy. Laughter yoga helps you laugh through life’s challenges. Anything can happen anytime, so its’ important to have a strong positive mental attitude ready to deal with any negativity that may come your way. Laughter increases and enhances your enjoyment of life.

We are a group of female physicians of the Ottawa chapter of the Federation of Medical women of Canada and we invited Sylvie to introduce us to Laughter Yoga. Her session was informative, respectful and engaging. The technique itself is very relaxing and would be useful for our patients with any chronic illness, or simply as a stress reliever. Sylvie has a very effective style of teaching and an infectious love for the Laughter Yoga Technique!

I am currently receiving chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer.
You helped make this period of my life much easier to tolerate.

My doctor is impressed with my ability to withstand treatment and I am convinced that laughter and my positive attitude have a lot to do with it… Thank you for introducing me to this incredible tool that is Laughter Yoga. You are part of my healing.
