A brief overview of our May 2019 diary

There is so much room for Laughter Yoga for teamwork, stress management and workplace wellbeing as well as for real personal life changes.

A reminder, too, that UnitedMind has the largest network of Laughter Yoga Partners in the UK and we always do our best to find a good day, time, and a great Laughter Facilitator so please look beyond our diary when you are looking to organise a Laughter Workshop for your group.
We also work with some awesome partners who organise corporate wellbeing, team and stress management events, ask us and they step in to plan together with you and bring it all together for your group at your venue.
No distance is too far for sharing laughter and positive change.
Give the gift of laughter to someone you care about.
Laughter coaching, workshops and training offer great value in life and in the workplace. We can run our training courses and workshops at your venue if you cannot join us on scheduled dates around the country.

World Laughter Day Thought from Yours Truly
World Laughter Day has been celebrated in the UK since first time we held it in St Albans in 2004 – it got a bit bigger in 2005 and 2005 is possible the more official year for our first World Laughter Celebration in the UK…
Looking back over the years of celebrating laughter brings some wonderful thoughts and I think for many people the moments we shared laughter are some of the happiest memories we have.
Laughter has also brought me tears, serious contemplation, and distress.
Regardless what has been in the past I love everyone who has spent laughter time with me no matter where and how we are connected or disconnected at present. Laughter Yoga is a community of people who have found laughter to be a connecting and healing force of life!
If you see something in the change you have experience through laughing then Laughter Yoga may be something for you. I may not be the right teacher for you but I may be able to point you in the direction of someone who will nurture you and your laughter to new levels.
Different laughter, different opinions, different people, different circumstances.
When we share laughter we let everything go and become one big chuckle-muscle together in greatness and peaceful agreement.
Please join us in sharing laughter on World Laughter Day 5th May 2019 in St Albans or elsewhere around the UK and the world.
Find your event on www.worldlaughterday.co.uk.
Love, Laughter and Peace
Your Everyday Laughter Queen #youreverydaylaughterqueen
The Playing Human Conference – on its way!
A superb line up is currently being introduced. We started in February when we introduced The Miracle Man, Ant Bennett, in March you met the YES Man, Dave Cornthwaite, in April you were acquainted with Play Expert, Yesim Kunter and this month we have another treat in store for you.
In May we are SO excited to introduce Laughter Therapist, Kate Hull Rodgers.
Meet Kate Hull-Rodgers – Laughter Therapist
Kate wears a great number of hats and I am not sure ‘Laughter Therapist’ is quite the right one I have chosen. She is an author, play producer, comedienne, coach and lots more that is liberally shared from within her grande personality and big heart.
As per her website Kate is an international leading authority on the strategic use of Humour in the Workplace. Believe you me, she is!
Her work and personal story of mental health recovery are the subject of the ITV documentary “Laughter is the Best Medicine”.
And Kate’s business book, “Pearls of Bizdom” outlines how businesses can go from grit to great.
There is much, much more to come when her profile airs later in May so look out for the page about Kate Hull Rodgers!
Read more about Kate on humourus.co.uk.
Make sure you book soon – even if 2020 still seems a long way away.
Did you notice who else is coming?
- Ant Bennett, The Miracle Man
- Dave Cornthwaite, The YES Man
- Yesim Kunter, Play Expert and Creative Strategist
- Kate Hull Rodges, HumourUs and Author
- Sue Haswell, Big Results and Mindfulness Leader

- Miriam Akhtar, Positive Psychologist and Happiness Expert
- Dr and Mrs Kataria, Founders of Laughter Yoga International
- Eser Mutlu, Laughter Yoga Master Trainer Turkey

What does the Accreditation stamp actually mean?
It is a win-win for everyone whether it is workplaces or individuals in private or public sectors.
If you have already obtrained your Certified Laughter Yoga Leader or Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher qualification through training with UnitedMind and UnitedMind trained teachers you can as leader do all you have learned so far which includes
- developing your own laughter
- leading laughter clubs
- running community and workplace sessions
And as teacher you can do all you have learned as a leader and teacher plus teach the 2-day Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training.
With the Accreditation there are simply a few extra requirements to comply with in order for teaching accredited training.
These requirements bring a different level of quality and CPD recognition to the qualification as a Laughter Yoga Leader, Teacher and Coach.
Laughter Yoga Leader Training follows a specific structure around the country and world, and Master Trainers around the world follow a specific structure for teaching Laughter Yoga Teacher Training.
It is simply an additional quality stamp for the UK and is not changing the training only adding extra leverage with an extra certificate when you complete the accreditation requirements.
If you don’t want the accreditation you simply do the training as it has always been.
If you do not want to comply with the requirements you can still teach Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training, however, you cannot call it accredited training.
Look for an Approved Trainer for your Accredited Laughter Yoga course when you choose the provider for yourself or for your team.
They have also practiced Laughter Yoga every day for a very long time and as such know from a very personal angle the changes you can potentially experience through adopting the practice into your life.
They not only know it works, they feel the benefits daily, AND they undertake regular CPD (Continued Professional Development) to keep their skills up-to-date and fresh.

The Accredited Training Formula
Accreditation means our courses are approved for CPD!
You are always in good hands with approved Laughter Yoga Teachers!
The Laughter Yoga Training is still certified with a standard international certificate issued by Laughter Yoga International and co-signed by your teacher(s) which you receive at the end of the 2-day or 5-day training.
Getting the training accredited has been a big step in standardising the way we teach Laughter Yoga in the UK and how we bring the techniques to people as a tool approved for CPD purposes.
The courses from UnitedMind that have been approved as FHT Accredited Training are
- 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training
- 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training
- 1-day Laughter Yoga Coach Training
- Laughter Therapist Training
This is exciting news at a time when mental and physical health is top of the priority list for many workplaces and public sector organisations.
With accreditation we are taking Laughter Yoga to another level of nationwide approval within the education system.
