Laughter Facilitation Skills

Saturday 7th July 10-5, Sunday 8th July 10-4

'A breath of fresh air in the laughter .... world' (quote from a Laughter yoga Master Trainer)

Learn to laugh more and retrain your brain to promote:
*mindfulness*
*happiness*
*stress-free living*.

You boost your confidence, your ability to connect, your flexibilty & creativity, and your spontaneity.

Besides the personal benefits, at the end of the course you're able to run your own short sessions, and maybe much more.

'Since (2002) he has continued to use laughter yoga creatively and expansively, and he continues to be a pioneer here......I am delighted to be able to support this pioneering approach.' Dr Madan Kataria, founder of Laughter Yoga.

This course with a laughter yoga practitioner of 15 years experience covers laughter skills from traditions around the world.
(These include yoga, healing, huna, NLP, meditation, Appreciative Inquiry, voicework, and more)

Learn these skills:

  • for yourself, for your own personal practice, to improve the quality of your own life.

  • and / or integrate them into your existing professional toolkit - no matter what your profession, these skills are relevant.

  • and / or to run your own laughter sessions, for small groups, teams, conferences etc.

You learn principles and structure which you can adapt and use in the ways that are right for YOU.

This flexible approach (#laughteryogawithJoe) makes it especially user-friendly, no matter what your role is, who you are and where you use it.

You learn a natural, genuine, spontaneous approach from a Laughter Ambassador ('services to promote Laughter Yoga')

- 'Brilliant. Such a relaxed couple of days'

- 'The group was an inspiration and I'm taking away what I needed'

- 'Practical learning, supported by a safe group'

- 'Powerful. I think a few lifestyle changes will be in order after this'


“This training was different from my previous (laughter yoga) training, therefore complementary to it. The weekend was more about principles rather than being prescriptive; and encouraged a gentler approach to introducing laughter, which could be useful when working with a possibly reserved British public”

This course includes a comprehensive manual with information and exercises on the science, medicine, psychology and other aspects of laughter, laughter yoga, laughter therapy and more.
This course enables you to get the necessary professional insurance.
If you are already a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader, this course complements and adds to your exising skills. If you are not, this course is an excellent way into using laughter skills, personally and professionally.

  • How to access and generate genuine spontaneous laughter
  • How to access mindfulness, awareness and embodiment
  • lots of laughter exercises from many traditions
  • about Dr Kataria’s laughter club initiative and laughter yoga

Comments from previous participants include:

  • 'Thank you for being so warm and kind and connecting me back to people in such a wonderful playful way'.
  • 'Good venue, good group size, time used very effectively - good illustration in practice of being an effective facilitator.'
  • 'I am so much more powerful now. Thank you x '
  • 'I wanted to let you know that I ran a session this morning (which I nearly didn’t because I was so anxious) and it was literally the BEST one I have ever done. I used the techniques from your course, with a few touches of my own plus a bit of Kataria traditionalism - and it was just amazing...........it just worked, they really got into the extended period of just moving around the room, stretching and playing with their physicality, and we then spent ages sitting in a circle just laughing in different ways. It was perfect.
    I therefore thank you, from the bottom of my heart. My confidence is boosted, and I felt a real sense that I was “leading” the group in something very special. I’m so glad I did your course! I do hope you do an advanced one next year.'
  • ‘I’m really glad I came on this course, meeting people who believed in and enthused about what they were teaching and others who were friendly and willing to learn. Thank you for the experience and starting something I see as being a big part of my life from now on, both for clients and personally.’
  • 'Just to say the laughter course really hit the spot for me. I feel in my joy and positivity now, in contrast to how I felt at the start.'
