Mar Vista Laughter Club

There are only three more sessions of the Mar Vista Laughter Club for 2016, since we’re only meeting on the last Monday of the month for October, November and December.  As the last Monday of October is Halloween, there will be the option of wearing costumes for October 31st.

November’s date is the 28th, and December’s date is the 26th.

Come join us for one or all of these dates.  We are still meeting at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, 11555 National Blvd. at Federal Ave. (1 block east of Barrington Ave. on the north side of the street).  $5 donation to help pay for rent.  6:30 to 7:30pm.  No need to bring anything but you!

For questions or directions, call Kim:  310-849-4642.

Mar Vista Laughter Club

There have been five meetings of the Mar Vista Laughter Club and things are going really well.  We have had at least five people each week and it has always been a fun-filled hour with laughter, giggles and smiles.  I think that once Summer is over, we may have more people on a regular basis since many people take Summer vacations through August (including me).  The space is working out well (it’s called the “narthex” by the church) and there’s plenty of room for us to move, dance, breathe and engage in our laughter exercises.

I am hoping to see more people on a regular basis with some new faces as well as “regulars” each week.  I am happy to have created a weekly group–it is as beneficial for me to schedule a weekly time to laugh and to play as it is for those who decide to come and participate.  Come and join us!

Mar Vista Laughter Club

Tonight will be the second session of the Mar Vista Laughter Club.  You can come even if you didn’t come last Monday night for the opening night.  Here’s the scoop:  This is for everyone who needs more laughter in their lives.  You don’t need a sense of humor, be in a good mood or have a reason to laugh to participate.  Just come to play with others in a fun environment that utilizes laughter exercises and breathing and movement.  Reduce your stress, feel uplifted, make new friends and you’ll come away feeling lighter and happier.

This is for adults and it’s a donation-based laughter class.  Donations are greatly appreciated to help pay for the weekly rent of the room.

The location is:  St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, 11555 National Blvd. at Federal Ave.

Parking in the lot in back of the church.  The doors will open at 6:15pm.  The laughter club begins promptly at 6:30pm and ends at 7:30pm.

Call me if you have any questions:  310-849-4642

The Mar Vista Laughter Club

The room was filled with 23 people this past Monday night, July 13th for the first session of the Mar Vista Laughter Club.  It was a great start and we’ll continue weekly at the same place and at the same time.

Join us at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, 11555 National Blvd. at Federal Ave, every Monday night.

Door open at 6:15 and we officially start at 6:30 and go until 7:30pm

Those who want to laugh at the end on the floor are advised to bring their own yoga mat or a towel to lie down on.

Suggested donation is $5, but no one is turned away for lack of funds.  It’s important to laugh away our stress and to create a laughter community.  That’s the purpose of laughter clubs.

Call me if you have any questions.  310-849-4642  Kim Selbert

Update of Laughter Groove

Hi Everyone!

It has been quite a while since I posted on this website.  I have been busy facilitating classes for seniors and also growing a new part-time business.  I have recently become a distributor with Young Living Essential Oils and this has become another part-time business.

Therapeutic grade essential oils are wonderful for body, mind and spirit.  I love using the oils, such as Frankincense and Lavender before going to sleep, as well as using Peppermint to help with an occasional headache and to energize me.  Please contact me if you would like further information about Young Living Essential Oils.  Seminars will be offered twice a month beginning in January 2015.  Here’s my email address to get in touch with me regarding the oils:

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays!!

Update on Dance Your ‘Buts’ Off class for Women

Here’s new information about my weekly DYBO class for women:  We will now meet, starting next Thursday, January 23rd from 11:15am to 12:15pm at the Venice Love Shack, 2121 Lincoln Blvd. (at Victoria Avenue).  Plenty of parking on the south side of Victoria Avenue starting at 11am since there’s street cleaning on that side from 9 to 11am.  I really like the room where the class is being held.  It’s called, Heart Space and has really nice energy, plus it’s bright with the one window on the side and there’s plenty of space, at least while we’re still a small group.

Update on Dance Your ‘Buts’ Off for Women

I am excited to announce that I’ll be starting a daytime class at a great space in Venice, called, the Venice Love Shack, 2121 Lincoln Blvd. 90291.  The yoga room is called Heart Space and it is located through the back of the art gallery at the Venice Love Shack.  The class begins this Thursday, January 9th and meets from 11am to 12noon.

The cost is $15 per class.  Looking forward to bringing in women who want to recognize their emotional and physical blocks and release them through music and movement.  It’s a great time to start since we are now into 2014.

Any questions?  Please email me:  or call me:  310-849-4642


Dance Your ‘Buts’ Off is more than a dance class

Dance Your ‘Buts’ Off is more than a dance class.  In fact, it really isn’t a dance or fitness class but a movement class with a purpose.  The purpose of DYBO is to transform blocked energy (the ‘buts’) into energy in motion.  Through the process of recognizing, unraveling, releasing, restoring and rejoicing, women move blocked energy from their bodies in order to feel lighter, freer and more able to create new ways of being a woman.  This can mean different things for different women.  It might mean feeling more confident, less fearful, less sad, more powerful, etc.

What I love so much about DYBO is the way I feel when I am moving with other women and recognizing how movement changes not only the way we feel but also the way we look as women.  I feel more vibrant and alive when moving, especially with the intention of releasing what is no longer needed.

I have had such positive feedback about Dance Your ‘Buts’ Off from women who take other fitness or dance classes on a regular basis as well as from women who haven’t been moving their bodies in a long time.

I will be posting some photos and videos soon.
