Many of whom, I have had the great privilege to train from Leader to Teacher.
I am humbled by the integrity with which the teachers I have trained deliver their courses and keep empowering themselves through continued professional development.
Laughter Yoga works the way it has been working in the past and the way it has evolved over time! And we, as teaches, grow with Laughter Yoga!
You can train as a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader with me in St Albans, London, Durham, Blackpool and with your own group, as well as the locations of all the amazing Certified Laughter Yoga Teachers.
An exciting thing about the 2-day training in London on 20-21 April, though, is that I will be co-facilitating the course with Laughter Yoga Teacher Dave Berman.
Who is Dave, you may ask? Here is a good answer and another great reason to come on this course…
Dave Berman is a Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher and Laughter Ambassador from the US. He hosts the Daily Laughers YouTube channel where he’s posted a new laughter demonstration video every day since 1 January 2016. His mission is to inspire people to adopt a daily laughter practice. Dave co-wrote “Laughter For the Health of It” and wrote the foreword for “The Little Book of Laughnosis”. Both books are about combining laughter with hypnosis and coaching, which Dave is currently teaching on his global #HelpTheWorldLaugh tour that’s brought him to the UK.

However, as a new and very special offer, if you are a group of Certified Laughter Yoga Leaders gathered in a part of the country out of reach of these locations, and with a minimum of four people, I would love to come to your venue at dates to suit you (and me), and train you all as Certified Laughter Yoga Teachers.
Teaching together is really valuable! You combine your strengths and your experience in leading Laughter Clubs, community sessions, and workplace workshops.
UnitedMind is a key representative for Laughter Yoga in the UK with over 15 years of Laughter Yoga experience, 10 years experence in delivering Laughter Yoga Leader Training, 9 years experience of laughing daily in the face of MS, and 5 years of delivering Laughter Yoga Teacher Training – plus all the workplace laughter workshop deliveries over all those years.
I am proud to be a Daily Laugher!
What makes a great teachers?
My students, my friends, my teachers, my leaders, and those who didn’t train with me but went somewhere else.
A few more words on the subject of being a teacher on http://unitedmind.blogspot.co.uk/2017/01/a-reflection-on-teaching-from-heart.html
You are drawn to learning Laughter Yoga but not sure what it is and find that two days is a bit too much to set aside before knowing more?
Not to worry.
There is a perfectly valid and very exciting 1-day basic training to teach you the skills to bring laughter into your own life, and those you share your life with, on a daily basis.
The Laughter Yoga Basic Skills Course takes you through the hows and whys in a comfortable way, and if you find yourself passionate about Laughter Yoga once you finish this 1-day course then we can get you on the route to leading and teaching Laughter Yoga Clubs, workshops, and perhaps even training.
Read more about it on https://www.unitedmind.co.uk/training/laughter-yoga-basic-learning/.
And book your place via https://www.unitedmind.co.uk/product/certified-laughter-yoga-basic-learning-south/.
You can learn lots and yet only so much through self study when it comes to Laughter Yoga, Laughter Therapy, Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy, Shamanism, Reflexology, Reiki, Massage Therapy and all those other holistic methods, but if there is no human will interaction how will you ever learn the realness of it all and how will you learn to cope with real people?
I don’t teach all of these amazing methods at UnitedMind but I do teach Laughter Yoga and Laughter Therapy and I do it darn well, too (I’ve been told).
I teach with my heart based on wisdom collected in my brain – and I love the difference it makes when people feel it in their body, mind, and soul!
A difference you can only experience together.
Yes, self studies are cheap and can be a place to start but they are no replacement! I have done lots to top up my own knowledge but a book or a document never reaches as deep into your body wisdom as an in-person course leader, and connects you to the reality of your learning.
I would love to share change with you somewhere around the country so do get in touch.
We laugh and we cry and then we laugh some more because that is what life is all about – people instead of computers!
This is not the same as self study.

We will be laughing for two days, 3-4 August 2016, from 10am to 5pm, and send a group of Certified Laughter Yoga Leaders into the world to create positive change.

It is truly exciting to have received course accreditation from World Certification Institute (WCI) for the Certified Laughter Therapist training which has is a course running over 3-6 months enabling you to deliver long-term programmes in groups and with individuals.
Laughter Therapy promotes long-term physical, mental, emotional benefits and wellness based on experiencing catharsis through laughter and sometimes through tears.
Learning to access your laughter through release is one of the key elements of this programme as we explore laughter, relationships, loss, happiness, and much, much more.
Full details on www.unitedmind.co.uk/training/laughter-therapist/.
Courage to go against mainstream beliefs that laughter is for happy people with a sense of humour and good reason to laugh, and learn that there are other ways to inspire laughter in the self and others.
Hope, because everyone needs something to hold onto when on a mission to create something bigger than the ego and a bit scary.
When booking a place on a Laughter Yoga Leader programme people are not necessarily planning to run laughter clubs and workshops in their communities. It is just as much a way to learn to bring more laughter into own life in the hope of changing so it has a positive knock-on effect on others.
It can be a huge step and everyone’s journey is different, whether we come from a background of loss, illness, trauma, or other tragedy, the route is fun, inspiring, moving, and with huge potential for anyone!
You learn to remember, you learn to speak in front of a group, you learn to laugh, and most importantly you learn to connect with people in a very profound way.
Taking responsibility for your life is part of what you decide to do when you take charge of your laugh life. The first place is always at home – starting with your own change, your own laughter.
You don’t have to lead laughter sessions to be a leader in your life!

Developing this programme didn’t happen over night, it has been in the making for 10 years and many training and workshop, learning and teaching experiences have been added to its finish.
The programme is different from any other Laughter Facilitator and Laughter Yoga programmes with its minimum of 50 hours combined study and practical work, finishing with a dissertation to be presented.
As part of the certification to become a Laughter Therapist there is a number of exercises you must complete. Although the class work is listed throughout the pages, they are also part of your final submission of individual work, group work, report, dissertation.
You are required as part of the programme to organise a case study/studies, and once you will write up your report, your findings, results, and conclusion in a dissertation which you will present at a 2-hour in-person or online meeting.
This programme means business – laughter business!
