Hawthorne Laughter Club

The Hawthorne Laughter Club, originally the Belmont Laughter Club, began in the Spring of 2010. The child of Molly and Jamie from PLAY (Portland Laughter and Yoga), the club was an immediate success and was even visited by OPB on World Laughter Day in May 2010. By summer of 2010 the club was losing it's faithful leaders due to work conflicts, but others from the Portland laughter community banded together to keep the club going. Then in fall 2010, the club had to change locations. After finding a new location and beginning again in January of 2011, we are still in business more than 5 years later at the Hawthorne Wellness Center Movement Studio! We average of 10-20 laughers each week! Join manager & Laughter Yoga Leader Chris, Laughter Yoga Leader Stephen, Laughter Yoga Teacher/Leader Andrea and various guest leaders at our current location in the back of the Hawthorne Wellness Center Sundays afternoons. Very good, very good, yea!
