Are you looking for an OUT-OF-THE-ORDINARY event in Edmonton ?

You are at the right place. 

Laughing is one of the best medicines. That's why LAUGH FOR A CAUSE series is launching a monthly event at Hawrelak Park this summer. 


Everyone is invited to join an hour of laughter yoga. 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 your donations will go to Pilgrims Hospice Society.

What this event is NOT... 

  • Traditional yoga practice

  • Comedy show

  • A place of judgement

What to bring... 

  • A water bottle

  • Yoga mat OR blanket OR towel (basically, something to lay on your back for 10 minutes)

  • Your willingness to laugh and let loose

Where will my donation go? 

This event is FREE and everyone is welcome to join. All donations are however accepted.


The Laughing Hour has partnered up with Pilgrims Hospice Society who offers compassionate care for individuals living with a terminal illness, enhancing dignity and quality of life, until the end of life.
