'A breath of fresh air in the laughter yoga world' (Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher)

Are you ready to live a more resilient, connected, authentic and joyful life? To learn laughter practices to change your life?

Learn laughter skills from traditions around the world (including yoga, huna, zen), and bring more joy, happiness and health into your life and the life of others.

This course is grounded in the yoga insight of changing your life through laughter practices.
('Awesome' Dr Madan Kataria, founder of the global laughter yoga movement)

What is this course/programme?
This certificated course teaches you a wide range of laughter skills. It draws on my own extensive (22 years) experience of laughter yoga and associated laughter approaches (hasyam, huna, zen). It teaches you how best to develop and adapt these skills to suit you - your style, your uniqueness, and how you yourself can get the most from them.

At the end of this course you have learnt laughter as a yoga. You are a laughter workshop leader / laughter facilitator and able to run your own sessions and workshops with a variety of titles*, with exercises from a wide range of laughter traditions, old and new.

( * ask me about this)

Why this learn this programme?
This approach specialises in adapting and refining your own approach (be it a yoga, 'yoga', laughter the best medicine, gelotology, laughter medicine, and every other 'laughter' approach), for your own particular personal and professional circumstances.

It has been described as: 'A breath of fresh air in the laughter yoga world' (Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher)

It is well-suited for those who want both structure and creativity, who want to be flexible and 'flowing', and who want to apply & adapt these skills in all settings, not just 'laughter' workshops. Check out the comments from previous participants.

“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 enables you to get the necessary professional insurance.

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.'
