A Reflection from Yours Truly

Laughter Yoga is fantastic!

As I was looking at my diary for 2019 this morning I glanced at the year we are just about to complete – with great gratitude.

2018 has been an outstanding year in so many ways and the laughter we have shared has been truly exceptional…

  • 12 x Laughter Club
  • 1 x The Playing Human Conference
  • 2 x Laughter Yoga Teacher Training
  • 22 x Laughter Yoga Leader Training
  • 6 x Laughter Therapy, Gibberish and Coach training
  • 85 x Laughter Workshops (20 of them run by my Laughter Colleagues)
  • 1 x Laughter Workshop still to run before 1 January 2019

The rest of my time has been spent keeping 14 websites live and living, summing up accounts, replying to emails, taking calls, writing this newsletter, organising events, updating social media, and the odd free weekend now and then.

I am not intending to brag but simply expressing my delight that I am able to do what I enjoy doing, taking great pride in my work and feeling hugely humbled by the trust.

I love it – I love sharing Laughter Yoga and positive change! I would do even more when possible.

Can you tell?

No laughter-year without its share of challenges, though.

However, Laughter Yoga is so embedded in me as a coping strategy that even those conflicts that caused tears and painful experiences turned into valuable lessons to grow from and build stronger relationships where possible.

The joys and laughter exceed the challenges by far and this is where I find my thoughts go when I look back and pick out memories that shine.

There is no laughter that is irritating, too loud, too strange, excessive, weird or anything else than a wonderful harmony of joyful sounds.

Your sharing of your laughter over the years have brought healing and joy to me and more people that either of us can possibly imagine.

I feel blessed to have had all of this going on, thank you all for being part of the venture and for making laughter happen in so many places.

Practicing Laughter Yoga does not remove obstacles but instead make them more tolerable and easier to live with or even overcome.

Without you, the organisations, companies, workplaces, business partners, individuals, students, colleagues, family and friends I would not have been sharing as much laughter as I have been in 2018 and since 2000.

I am ready for a busy 2019 with even more to share.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Wishing you health, happiness and abundance in all areas of life now and beyond the coming year.

Love, Laughter and Peace

Lotte

Your Everyday Laughter Queen #youreverydaylaughterqueen

Workplace Laughter Workshops and Training

There was a comment following a corporate Workshop I recently held at the Q&A part at the end of the session about laughing at yourself.

A popular laughter exercise is Laugh at Yourself and it was interesting to discuss how some can find it difficult to laugh at the self and what defines us.

The point of the exercise is exactly that, to remove what we make things mean, to not laugh AT but to laugh as a coping tool.

Funny thing about Laughter Yoga and the words we use to describe Laughter Yoga…

We say ‘laugh for no reason’ when in reality we do laugh for reasons which are life-related.

So, instead someone made up that we laugh ‘unconditionally’ – SAME THING!

No conditions, no reasons.

Then we ‘fake’ the laughter but someone couldn’t say that because no one wants ‘fake’ so we ‘simulate’ the laughter or ‘pretend’ – SAME THING AGAIN!

Laughter is truth and honesty and all this pretending it is something or another makes me smile at the thought because these are exactly the things and issues we are addressing and attempting to remove or resolve with Laughter Yoga and the daily practice.

As the saying goes, “life happens outside the comfort zone”.

Laughter Yoga Teacher Get-Together Dec 2018

Laughter is a true blessing when shared with colleagues, friends and family just as much as when shared with strangers!

Love Laughter Yoga and love life!

Why The Playing Human Conference happens NOW!

You may have read a bit about The first Playing Human Conference which was held in September 2018. Perhaps even the story of why it is important for us now.

You can revisit the article on www.unitedmind.co.uk/laughter-conference/why-the-playing-human-conference-is-key/.

People are stressed to their max capacity and as such keep forgetting about the important things in life including being playful.

There are many days where seriousness creeps in, even when attending a conference like The Playing Human Conference.

However, the event provides methods for adapting and adopting skills to remain playful and funloving – even when life throws serious stuff in our faces.

When you commit to the dates, they become real as they enter your diary.

Often we delay making the decision and suddenly the event is over or seats have sold out, or our diary has become full of other events and commitments.

This is true for a lot of things in life…

When you decide for anything it starts happening – NOW!

Why not save a bit of money, like £50, and make sure you save the dates?

Three days of celebrating Laughter Yoga 25th Anniversary with Founders, Dr and Mrs Kataria, followed by The Playing Human Conference with speakers who are joining us to play and to share their serious stories of what brought them to curiosity and courage in life – £100 right now.

Did you notice who is coming?

  • Anthony Bennett, Survivor and Inspirational Speaker
  • Dave Cornthwaite, Say Yes More Founder and Adventurer
  • Sue Haswell, Big Results and Mindfulness Leader
  • Kate Hull Rodges, HumourUs and Author
  • Albert Nerenberg, Film Maker and Laughologist
  • Maggie Irving, Class Clown and Performance Coach
  • Miriam Akhtar, Positive Psychologist and Happiness Expert
  • Yesim Kunter, Toy Designer and Creative Strategist

These awesome and inspiring people are not only there to tell a story, they are coming to share some fun and play with us all!

Make sure you book soon – even if 2020 seems a long way away.

Please get in touch about our courses, workshops, conferences, laughter clubs and other events via email, info@unitedmind.co.uk, phone 0800 1214 714 or mobile 07736 341 717.

London and UK – Laughter Yoga everywhere

In December we welcomed new Laughter Yoga Leaders and shared laughter with companies and organisations in London and South West England and in Denmark.

What a great learning curve for us all, both facilitator and participants.

Fabulous experience!

Whenever I am invited or booked to run a workshop or training I learn as I teach.

There is such tremendous beauty in the change people experience when they are willing to be willing to explore something that may feel different than what we usually engage ourselves in on a daily basis.

A recent comment from a large corporate client:

I can’t thank you enough for the fantastic session you ran for me with my team. The feedback, comments and discussions I have had since highlight to me that people found it informative, useful and, frankly, brilliant. I will confess, I was a bit nervous about it myself, but your professionalism, knowledge, skills and passion shone thorough. It was amazing to watch the transformation of people in the room – it was a physical, real thing to witness – as they gained the confidence to move away from the walls and join in. Then at the end, I think everyone got the point and it had a significant impact on many in the room.

The Certified Training Formula

Together with some great Laughter Yoga Teachers I train individuals and teams all over the world to lead laughter sessions as Laughter Yoga Leaders or Laughter Yoga Teachers.

The Laughter Yoga Training is certified with an international certificate issued by Laughter Yoga International and co-signed by your teacher(s).

Getting the training accredited is a big step in standardising the way we teach Laughter Yoga in the UK and bring the techniques to people as a tool approved for CPD purposes.

Watch this space, it is happening!

The training that is currently being reviewed is

  • 2-day Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training
  • 5-day Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher 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 natinowide approval within the education system.

If you would like to train with me I would love to teach you and share my 16 years experience with you in London (together with Mel Bloch), St Albans, Durham, Blackpool and your venue if you want to organise your own dates with your group of minimum 4 people, as well as one-on-one in Hemel Hempstead.

Corporate Laughter Workshops and Training

The number of workplaces who are choosing Laughter Yoga, Laughter Coaching and Laughter Therapy as a method for combatting various business needs such as team building, stress management, communication and presentation skills, as well as the more hidden pains within their staff, has risen dramatically over the past few years.

This increase in the requirement for laughter workshops and training is a great trend that is continuing into 2019 and beyond.

Already the diary well into 2020 is bursting with bookings and I am tremendously grateful for the trust in the work we deliver around the country.

There has been and continues to be great focus on mental health in both the public and private sectors, and in this area we have many great results using Laughter Yoga as a long-term method to help integrate healthy habits and move forward in life.

Mental health is NO LAUGHING MATTER and we take it extremely serious when we work within organisations with challenges of this nature seeing that we work with people, emotions, teams, families and encounter many issues that require true connection and huge capacity for compassion. This is what we create when we share laughte and community.

Laughter Yoga is for more than just one-off workshops and events.

We provide long-term programmes to ensure the success of incorporating laughter as a professional statement and tool for creating results, both personally and professionally.

People who experience this often feel more connected with their peers, grounded in themselves as well as feel ready for any challenge.

There is not one single area where Laughter Yoga and Laughter Therapy cannot be applied to benefit individuals and groups.

Your organisation benefits from an allround solution with the potential for building relations, creating focus and motivation, lowering absence and improving staff retention and morale.

The workshops and keynotes we deliver have a deep-rooted foundation in real-life experience as well as in medical and scientific research.

UnitedMind and our partners are experts in delivering Laughter Key Notes, Workshops and Training in the areas of

  • Mental health
  • Physical wellbeing
  • Stress management
  • Team building
  • Presentation skills
  • Communication skills
  • Science behind laughter

So. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am that many keynotes are in place and although there may still be some surprises the line up is awesome!

  • Friday 5th June 2020 is Laughter Yoga 25th Anniversary Celebration and will be opened by Dr Madan Kataria and Mrs Madan Kataria

…and The Playing Human Conference 2020!

Saturday 6th June 2020 is the start of The Playing Human Conference 2020 with keynotes I will shortly start introducing because when it really comes down to time we have so little before June 2020…

If you want to put your interest forward you can book now, there are only 200 seats made available and with a fee this time of £100 (early bird) and £150 (full fee) for all three days I am fairly certain we will fill Conway Hall in 2020.

London and UK – touching, moving, inspiring

One year ago with BBC and McVities

November and all the months prior to now have been full of shared laughter and although some may find it unexpected and others may love it what is a common denominator for all workshops and training is that we have spent time finding laughter and laughter has flown.

Laughter connects us and helps us find common ground to move on from disagreement, adversity, differences, ups and downs, and all the things that constantly happen in life and at work.

  • London is on a laughter high!
  • The rest of the UK is on a laughter roll!
  • The whole World is on a laughter mission!

November saw new Certified Laughter Yoga Teachers hit the towns and cities of the country, and there were laughter workshops held in nurseries, groups with learning disabilities, professional consultants, insurance people, and that is just November…

Throughout 2018 almost 20 workshops have been channeled from me to Laughter Professionals with whom I work with on a regular basis because I have not had the availability.

I wish I could work with every client who come to me, but I also enjoy nurturing the people who have trusted me with their training and development, and I, in turn, trust them to deliver to very high standards. Furthermore, we work together and my vision is to create opportunities for laughter for us all.

If you are interested in laughter workshops, training, coaching, keynotes, other events and how you can learn to promote health and happiness at home and in the workplace, please contact us on email info@unitedmind.co.uk, or phone 0800 1214 714.

The Certified Training Formula

When you become a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader or Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher you are not stuck with your presentation.

Learning Laughter Yoga takes you through a formula that works well and teaches you a way of presenting which is a great foundation.

With this formular for introducing and running a laughter session it means you have a standard that you can work with in your sessions but it is far from ‘the only way to do it’.

Everyone has their own style and the format is simply a way of encouraging you to get confidence and to develop your own way of introducing.

Everyone learns the same method of delivery but Laughter Yoga then evolves and develops to be shared from our personality and your soul.

Nothing is set in stone and we come from a variety of backgrounds where we bring in our own core values and ideas, this is what we share in our groups when we are trained Laughter Yoga Leaders and Teachers.

Since 2007 I have trained more than 1,000 Certified Laughter Yoga Leaders and over 150 Certified Laughter Yoga Teachers. I am not telling this to brag in any way (perhaps just a little moment of feeling proud and feeling grateful), instead it is to highlight the popularity and the need for this type of training.

The 2-day Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training is really popular as a starter and both myself and the teachers I have trained enjoy teaching Laughter Yoga Leader students on courses around the country.

If you would like to train with me I would love to teach you and share my 16 years experience with you in London (together with Mel Bloch), St Albans, Durham, Blackpool and your venue if you want to organise your own dates with your group of minimum 4 people, as well as one-on-one in Hemel Hempstead.

There are currently 104 regular Laughter Clubs started by Laughter Yoga Professionals.

However, there are MANY more Laughter Yoga Professionals who have trained and taken Laughter Yoga and Laughter Coaching into their lives, their workplaces, and their communities without starting a social Laughter Club.

It is all about deciding what is suitable for you!

The 5-day Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher Training is the next step where you learn to teach Laughter Yoga Leaders and use more techniques in your professional work and personal life.

The training has been running at Felden Lodge in Hemel Hempstead since I started teaching the course in November 2012 – and it is amazing.

You get the opportunity to connect with some wonderful Laughter Yoga Professionals who together with you are taking Laughter Yoga to a whole new level. We go into the depth of breathing as well as discuss business oppotunities, you share you own special talent even if you think you have none, and much more.

The price you pay for the 5-day Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher Training is inclusive of accommodation from Monday to Friday and includes a vegetarian diet all week.

Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher Training runs on the following dates

Please make your booking via secure link on www.unitedmind.co.uk/product-category/training/laughteryogateacher.

Anna Rachel Photography for The Wellness Movement

What a month – thank you for October!

Following on from September and the conference buzz I have been busy with teaching in Blackpool and in London, running workshops with corporate teams in London, midwives in the Midlands, and many other health and wellness events around the country.

Thank you for trusting me with your laughter!

I am always happy to travel to you to teach or speak at your short or long event. Where there are people, there is opportunity for sharing laughter, joy and connection!

Being based in Hertfordshire in South-East England does not limit my work as I travel around the country to share Laughter Yoga and therapeutic laughter at private and public events.

November will be taking me to Newcastle, Cambridge, Durham, London, St Albans and Hemel Hempstead – so far…

The Laughter Yoga 25th Anniversary

The dates are final for the celebration of the 25th Anniversary for Laughter Yoga in the UK. We will start a weekend of serious laughter, play, joy, learning, fun, connection, and creativity with a grand opening with wonderful Laughter Yoga on Friday 17 April 2020!

Make sure you book soon – even if 2020 seems a long way away. With International Laughter Yoga Royalty coming to the UK the venue will fill quick.

Laughter Yoga Professionals are lining up to present their special brand of Laughter Yoga and already I have had to say no to some and maybe to others.

Who will be speaking, who will be sharing, who will be joining the Laughter Yoga 25th Anniversary in London in 2020?

…and The Playing Human Conference 2020

will be running on Saturday 18 April 2020 to Sunday 19 April 2020.

The 2018 event was amazing, however, just wait until you hear about the speakers we have in store for you for 2020. Goodness me!

We am still in the process of discussing details with some super-exciting people and you may think we are in good time but we are end of 2018, suddenly it will be 2019, and if 2019 goes as fast as 2018 then suddenly 2020 will be here.

If you want to put your interest forward you can book now, there are only 400 seats and with a fee this time of £100 (early bird) and £150 (full fee) for all three days I am fairly certain we will fill Conway Hall in 2020.

There are 40 VIP seats – the first two rows in the hall, and they have almost all booked by now.

Booking early… www.unitedmind.co.uk/product/the-playing-human-conference-2020

Business Experts in Hemel Hempstead

The Business Experts Programme has been running online for a number of years and I have decided to bring it back to a 1-day in-person workshop.

When we spend the hours together the benefits of discussions, work templates, presenting on video, decision making, planning, defining and structuring exceed the benefits of the online equivalent.

Online Business Experts is still a super-valid programme and I recommend it to anyone who wants to take their Laughter Business or Holistic Business further, however, if you can at all make it to Hemel Hempstead please come.

We cover the following key elements of creating your image defining, and refining your strategy

  1. Creating a Killer BIO
  2. Improving presentation skills
  3. Creating a Marketing Plan
  4. Creating a Business Plan

It runs on the following dates in Hemel Hempstead

For more information about our courses, workshops, conferences, laughter clubs and other events, please contact us on email, info@unitedmind.co.uk, phone 0800 1214 714 or mobile 07736 341 717.

In London and UK – touching, moving, inspiring

October has been an ocean of laughter blessings!

Sharing Laughter Yoga with innovative companies in London, with 100 bankers, 200 midwives, nurses in London, adults with learning disabilities, and Laughter Yoga Leaders in different locations has been a gift.

It is what I do and it is my business but it does not stop me from feeling a real sense of gratitude when people take on Laughter Yoga. Whether you choose to keep the laughter flowing or go back to ‘how it was’ is your choice, and I can only recommend the first one of those options.

Keep the laughter alive.

And there is always a choice to be made…

I leave my training courses and workshops feeling touched, moved and inspired by each and every one of the individuals and teams who have decided to give it a go. Even those who sits it out in a workshop, may capture a small word of wisdom they take with them in their heart and subconscious mind.

There is lots of laughter to be had and to be shared!

If you are interested in laughter workshops, training, coaching, other events and how you can learn to promote health and happiness at home and in the workplace, please contact us on email info@unitedmind.co.uk, or phone 0800 1214 714.

Laughter Yoga Teacher Training

The 5-day Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher Training has been running at Felden Lodge in Hemel Hempstead since I started teaching the course in November 2012 and they have been amazing.

Felden Lodge also needs to continue to live on and their accommodation fees reflect this. It is the first time since 2012 that they are raising their price and it is reflected in the course fee.

The 5-day Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher Training in 2019 and onwards is now priced at £850 early bird and £1,195 full fee, in October you can still book at the old early bird fee of £750 for the course running 21-25 January 2019 – check out with coupon ‘2018price’ to get £100 off £850.

The price is including accommodation from Monday to Friday and includes a vegetarian diet throughout the week.
