There is a brand new year ahead of us.
It happened so quickly yet 2021 had all the months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds in it as every year has.
On these final hours of the year it is my time to reflect on what was and project new througths into what is coming.
I will not be dwelling too long on 2021 except to say thank you for all the laughter we have shared in person and online, thank you to corporations and organisations, teams and individuals who have willingly opened their webcams, doors, minds, hearts, and perception to the transformation that laughter brings to each and everyone of us when shared plentiful.
2020 was a year of upheaval and uncertainty, 2021 was a year where we hoped to bring back a form of normality, yet it turned into another unclear year for many.
However, it brought growth and connection, too.
With this in mind I look forward to sharing even more laughter around the globe, with national and international clients, friends, family and colleagues, as we move into 2022 with eyes wide open, full of hope and with our vibrational energy raised on a path of making change matter!
Whether 2021 brought sour grapes or milk and honey is unimportant, it is the resilience and resourcefulness that kept us all going and got us through.
That is what drives us yet again to create a peaceful and empowering present and future for everyone.
Your joy and smiles keep the wheels turning. Thank you!
Wishing you a truly special New Year with everything that money cannot buy plus some.
With Love, Friendship, Honesty, Kindness, Health, Hope, Goodness, Grace, Gratitude, Understanding, Faith, Peace, Forgiveness, Patience, Diligence, Love, Blessings and Joy
Laughter Yoga Expert and Master Trainer
Laughter Yoga – for transforming lives and workplaces
Train yourself in any skill that involves laughter.
If you do need a reason for it, I have many to share.
Laughter is moving, fun, healthy, connecting, exciting, and full of potential for positive change.
It starts with yourself and extends into your communities, at home and at work.
Laughter is an inside job.
And Laughter permits you to open all the internal doors and gateways to reveal great potential for happiness, thriving, your dreams, your work, contribution, compassion, to being an outstanding leader in your life and of your life.
Manage your life and your work from your heart but do not leave your head behind. This is a recipe for success in all areas of living well.
The past many years have seen thousands of national and international corporations choosing Laughter Yoga as a method for improving connection, teamwork, lowering stress, and boosting staff morale while looking after mental health and wellbeing of their organisation.
Train yourself or your team.
To become an instructor or facilitator, the 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training is a great start, but if you wish to become a train the trainer as well as deliver high-quality corporate workshops, then the 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training will be your next step after the leader training.
There are no requirements for the 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training (or 5-week online leader training), and you do not need to practice or know yoga as we are simply doing basic breathing exercises combined with the laughter.
So, start by becoming a Laughter Yoga Leader on the 2-day in-person or 5-week Laughter Yoga Leader Training Online.
Second step could be becoming a Laughter Yoga Teacher on the 5-day in-person training if you feel called to corporate transformation or to teaching.
And finally to become a Laughter Coach, delivering one-on-one sessions, you can add an extra day to your training as Laughter Yoga Teacher.
More information about the different programmes is available on
- Laughter Yoga Leader – from £195 per person
- Laughter Yoga Teacher – from £895 per person including accommodation
- Laughter Yoga Coach – from £950 per person including accommodation
Upon completion of Laughter Yoga training with UnitedMind and Laughter Yoga Master Trainer Lotte Mikkelsen you will receive the Laughter Yoga International Laughter Yoga Certificate and be eligible for the UnitedMind accredited training certification.
UnitedMind is registered with our insurance company as a training provider which means that our certificates grant you insurance.
When you choose your training provider please make sure you check their credentials as online training methods and courses are not always covered by insurers.
There are a few more requirements if you want the additional accreditation certificate.
FHT Accredited courses uniquely from UnitedMind Laughter Yoga and our Accredited Laughter Yoga Teachers are
