Due to an elevator overhaul at the Providence Institute
we are currently laughing at:
South Side Yoga Center

This is a FREE Club, though donations to support the club’s
use of the space are welcome and appreciated.
Open to anyone interested in exploring and
sharing in the power of laughter!

"The laughter yoga class was amazing! It has really pushed me to live more positively and more merrily! I'm already laughing even more than I used to and I know I will continue." --Nathan T.
"I was absolutely amazed at the feeling of a deep intimate connection with total strangers through a simple laugh." --Derek C.
"It's the most connected to a group of people (strangers) that I've felt in ages! Thanks for reconnecting me." --Alanna G.
"Thank you! This was so fun and playful. I'm leaving the class still laughing." --Michele F.
“Quotes from my employees include: exhilarating, invigorating, beautiful, stress relieving, gratifying, energizing. It was a lot of fun and carried over a sense of group connection and fun with each other. Our staff has already asked, “When can we do it again?” -- David B. Green, Green & Greenberg, Counselors at Law
Laughter and silence are extraordinary partners.
In laughter, we trade in our anxious judging
minds for a playful and spontaneous
connection with what is.
In silence, we befriend ourselves at
the deepest level, opening to acceptance,
wisdom and trust.
Paired together, they invite us to embrace
our lives (and each other) with the open-hearted
presence & childlike wonder to which so
many spiritual traditions point...

"Surprisingly challenging, deep and introspective..."
"An awesome, fun filled weekend... great leadership with heart and soul. Makes me want to go straight home and share with others."
"This was truly a wonderful experience. I had no idea what to expect and had never even attended a laughter yoga class! This is a wonderful tool for life. Rebecca is amazing!"
"I loved this training. Rebecca is so playful, expressive, knowlegeable and down to earth. I had a blast yet felt very peaceful, relaxed and calm."
"Excellent and life changing! Great way to deal with a sense of hopelessness in the face of injustice. Frees up a sense of hope and optimism."

"Amazing. Exceeded my high expectations!"
And this note arrived several months after a training:
Core themes of the training:
"I am happy and well and using Laughter Yoga every week in my group therapies and even with some individuals. . . I myself am happier and healthier, as my family (especially grandkids) will attest!"
The Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training gently guides you in the exploration of two principal themes:
- The skill and art of delivering successful and meaningful laughter yoga sessions to diverse folks in a variety of contexts; and
- What it means to "be" and "live" laughter in the world.
