To face his own life challenges, Sylvester Gasana embraced meditation and a spiritual journey. He then joined laughter yoga for health reasons… to get fit, fight stress, lighten up and spread joy. Sylvester then trained as a Laughter Yoga coach and he leads sessions all over Cape Town. He believes laughter is the best medicine because of the improved blood pressure, increased oxygen into the bloodstream, release of endorphins, improved immune system function, and relief from stress.
Sylvester’s mission is to make everyone experience the benefits of real laughter. Experience how you feel Energised, Positive and Happier. And to your family, friends and work colleagues… you become a gift of laughter.

“Peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see. The question is whether or not we are in touch with it. We don’t have to travel far away to enjoy the blue sky….even the air we breathe can be a source of joy” Thich Nhat Hahn.
