My Laughter Presentation Experience
Caryl Derenfeld, California


On June 1, 2013, I made a presentation "Laughter - The Rhythm of Happiness" to about 1000 lovely participants at the TOPS convention in Santa Clara, California. It was a 90 minute talk and activity about using positive emotions and sustained laughter as a stress relief tool. Well received by the audience, they participated wholeheartedly in the discussion and laughter session. They played, danced and sang joyfully. In the end they welcomed the quiet of meditation, and asked great questions as we wrapped up.

Genuinely pleased and a bit overwhelmed by the response, all I can think is Gratitude to so many; my teachers and peers and everyone that participated in Laughter Yoga at the immersions. You are all my 'confidence boosters.' Many thanks go to my husband, Carl Derenfeld, who has always been my cheerleader, and this day was my Audio Visual Master, too. To Sebastien Gendry, Linda LeClerc, Jeffrey Briar, Laura Gentry, Debbie Friend, Sue Carter Ansari and Madan Kataria, Melanie Rudolph, Ina Lukas and Jason Freeman, all who introduced me to the great world of Laughter Yoga, trained with me and encouraged me to pursue its great lessons and share those with the world. And to my yoga teacher, Wendy Silvers, who has taught me that yoga is so much more than asanas on the mat; it is meant to be lived every moment as we walk through each day of our lives.

    People use different types of Yoga practices to improve things in their life. Laughter yoga is another type that might seem you very funny but its effective too. Reading research at helped me understand how it may let you stay cool but I think it must be tried when you are alone.
