Edmonton: Laugh for a Cause for Caregivers Alberta

September 10 @ 6:45 pm - 8:00 pm

You Choose

Laughter is one of the best medicines. That’s why Caregivers Alberta has partnered with The Laughing Hour for LAUGH FOR A CAUSE! Join founder of The Laughing Hour, Maude Bombardier on September 10th as she leads a one hour laughter yoga session at the Jerry Forbes Centre!

Everyone is welcome! Absolutely no yoga experience needed, only your willingness to laugh and have a blast. Join alone, with a friend, with your husband, or your daughter. Laughter is for everyone, and all the money raised through this event will be donated to Caregivers Alberta.

Tickets are priced from $5 to $100- you choose what you can donate!

Caregivers Alberta would like to thank The Laughing Hour for kindly donating their time to put on this event!


What is Laughter Yoga?

Laughter yoga is a laughing technique that requires us to laugh for absolutely no reason. No jokes and no yoga poses. The best way to describe this is if you think of a laughing workshop where you are encouraged to spark laughter from within.

All you need is a willingness to let loose, have fun, and the group effect will work it’s magic to get you laughing till you can’t stop! How fantastic does that sound?

  • A LOT of laughing
  • High possibility of making new friends
  • Stress release

  • Stepping out of your comfort zone gradually

What Is This Event NOT?

Where Will My Donation Go?
