Do you like to laugh?
Did you know that laughing is good for you?
Laughter is fun and therapeutic.

Laughter Yoga is simple and profound. An exercise routine and complete well-being workout. Developed by a medical doctor from India Dr. Madan Kataria (1995). Laughter yoga is not about fancy pants or poses. It is laughter for no reason to encourage a sense of child-like play and feeling of joy. The yoga part is all about the deep breathing. The laughing stretches various muscles in your chest, abdomen, neck & shoulders. 10-15 minutes of sustained belly laughter can be equivalent to 30 minutes of rowing!

Laughter Yoga Will:

  • Improve fitness with fun and easy exercise
  • Reduce stress
  • Increase happiness
  • Promote a positive mental attitude
  • Give more energy
  • Strengthen your immune system

Cathy Nesbitt
Laughter Ambassador

On October 13, 2017 at the Trovador Centre in Toronto Cathy was appointed a Laughter Ambassador by Madan & Madhuri Kataria, the creators of Laughter Yoga. For her dedication and selfless services to promote the causes of Laughter Yoga.

Best wishes for bringing Good Health, Joy and World Peace through Laughter.

Madan & Madhuri Kataria


Laughter Online and In The News:

Bradford, Ont. Woman Promotes Positive Mental Health
Through Laughter Yoga

A woman in Bradford, Ont. combines laughter and exercise to promote positive mental health and well-being. Cathy Nesbit of Cathy's Chuckle Club teaches laughter yoga, offering a free, online class every Tuesday.

"I think the most important part of laughter is the oxygen. When we're stressed, we're not breathing properly, so our body isn't getting what it needs and for sure our brain isn't," Nesbit said. "When you give yourself permission to engage in this … and break through that resistance, the magic happens."

Meet the Worm Lady of
Bradford West Gwillimbury

Originally published in Bradford Today

Nothing creeped out Cathy Nesbitt more than worms.

But during the past 16 years, she has become known as Bradford West Gwillimbury’s Worm Lady.

Nesbitt runs her business, Cathy’s Crawly Composters, out of her home — promoting vermicomposting, or composting with the use of worms, across Canada by selling red wiggler worms, composting containers, composter bedding, books, earrings in the shape of worms, and other so-called “wormy accessories,” such as compost pails.

Health and Wellness is a laughing matter

Speaker write-up from Probus Mountainview.

Laughter creates connections between humans. Learn about the tremendous health benefits from regular, sustained belly laughter and have a few laughs along the way. Laughter is the best medicine for good reason. Its in us all waiting to burst out. Life is stressful. Our brain requires 25% more oxygen than the rest of our body. When were stressed, were not breathing deeply. The body is deprived of air and therefore so is the brain. We cannot think clearly when stressed. Laughter helps us release tension and improve relationships. Laughter breaks down barriers.

Cathy's Laughter Workshops?


Where Compassion Meets Community

Hello Cathy,

I am writing to thank you for your Laughter Yoga session this morning.

I did not know what to expect at all when I signed up the Matthews House Hospice volunteers and myself for a virtual class. I have to say, I was very pleased and very happy with the session.

I started out making myself laugh and then I found myself tearing from laughing so much. It just lifted my spirits and made me feel lighter.

Thank you Cathy so much for sending a little sunshine my way.

Marisa Vega

Volunteer Program Lead
Matthews House Hospice



Richmond Hill, Ontario

Cathy has been leading laughter yoga classes regularly for our group of special needs adults for about a year now. In that time she has developed meaningful relationships. Our folks really look forward to spending time with Cathy as she reaches out to include everyone. We laugh, we learn, we excercise and remember what it is like to laugh for no reason and just be silly.

Cathy is reliable and always has a smile on her face. We would highly recommend her.
