An Ally

As I was writing up my milestones and goals for the year at the finishing of 2019, just before moving into 2020, one of my aims was to be an active charity supporter instead of just talking about it.

On occasions I have run campaigns with the purpose of raising money for charity, and in addition UnitedMind supports Circus Starr on an annual basis.

However, with the recent on goings in our society, and the inequality that is still strong in our communities, I decided to step it up and become a true Ally instead of one who only talks about support and waves a finger in disagreement at wrongdoings.

We are one world and in this world I grew up with friends of different shapes, colours, preferences, abilities, backgrounds and many other differences. These relationships, new and old, are being nurtured by our mutual understanding and sense of what is right in a compassionate and kind way.

The other evening I watched Mamma Mia Here We Go Again, a movie my adults with learning disabilities Laughter Club at Larches Community, totally love, and while we were still meeting weekly they always asked me if I had seen the film. I finally did watch it. It moved me to tears thinking of my Larches Laughers and understanding their love for the music and the dance in this film. And I miss them in all that is going on hoping they are all safe and well.

In Laughter Yoga there is no political, religious or any other agenda other than being all inclusive with an open heart and mind.

My choice of charity is in recognition of the equal rights that I feel all of us – my friends, clients, colleagues, family, partners should experience without any questioning or even more serious attacks on anyone for the choices we all make. It is not just a charity, it is a group of people who believe in changing the world to include us all without anyone feeling they own privilege and without anyone being fearful of showing who they truly are.

Through booking Corporate Laughter Workshops and Training with UnitedMind Laughter Yoga Ltd you support growth and communication, diversity and equality in society at home and at work.

Equal rights for all!

That is my ‘political’ speech of the day.

With love and laughter

A Summer Thought from Yours Truly

There are so many ways to share laughter and joy, sorrow and sadness, yet we sometimes forget to reach out or to connect with people who matter in our lives.

It is easy to share an image, a post, a comment, something upbeat or something less inspiring on social media these days but the true value lies in the authenticity we experience when we connect personally to people who are loved ones, friends, family, those who are important in life outside the vapourware our life seems to have become while we have been waiting for it to happen again.

There is no right or wrong in living life, there is only our individual ways and as long as we don’t hurt anyone I believe we are okay to focus on what we find of essence for us as human beings.

We grow through the lessons we pick up as we move through our life experience and whether we make it grand or play it small is our own choice. As long as you don’t make it the choice of old conditioning and other people’s opinion I think it will be pretty great because then it is fully YOUR CHOICE.

When you practice Laughter Yoga every day you are taken on a journey to the present moment without regards for inhibitions and barriers set up through life and based on learnt behavious.

You simply are in the now!

This is where we thrive and look forward to exceptional moment and fun memories we can look back at in love and enjoyment – being touched, moved and inspired.

I started a course in Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, and was thrilled by the way it ties into the practice of Laughter Yoga with its energy systems that recognise how our bodies are able to rebalance when we focus on the total mass of who we are.

The Ayurveda system regards us as complete beings with all there is – physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually, exactly like Laughter Yoga does.

It is worth and extra thought to consider this, ‘no one has ever proved that getting ill is necessary’, and with a practice of Laughter Yoga or any method that raises your energy and vibration, you have the potential to achieve homostasis.

When we laugh we create a space of equilibrium, the state where we experience complete health and peace of mind.

Something you want for yourself and those you love?

I do. I also know that I cannot make anyone do anything so let it go and change yourself then others will follow.

Together we create lasting change, it start with me, with you, with us!

Love, Laughter and Peace

Laughter Yoga Master Trainer Lotte Mikkelsen

Impromptu Conversations

I have had the great privilege of meeting some seriously special people over the years in the UK and around the world.

Over the coming weeks I will be hosting Impromptu Conversations with some of these awesome Laughter Yoga Experts from around the world, although planning these sessions defeats the essence of being ‘impromptu’ we will still have many elements of the unknown and spontaneity in our chats.

All of these fantastic individuals have different focus and experience, and I cannot wait to share their wisdom with you and the world, inside as well as outside Laughter Yoga communities.

What is a common denominator for us all is that we do not only deliver Laughter Yoga events, workshops and training, we provide life-changing experiences.

  • Saturday 27 June at 3pm Olivera Radovanovic, Serbia
  • Friday 3 July at 3:15pm Luis Gomez, Mexico
  • Saturday 11 July at 10am Maki Kawakami, Japan
  • Saturday 18 July at 3pm Sandro Lobo, Brazil
  • Saturday 25 July at 10am Merv Neal, Australia
  • Saturday 1 August at 3pm Geert Van De Vijver, Belgium TBC
  • Saturday 8 August at 3pm Linda Leclerc, Canada

Please join us on the dates above on www.facebook.com/unitedmind.through.laughter where the Impromptu Conversations will be live streamed. The will also be posted on YouTube.

Olivera Radovanovic, Serbia

This is where Laughter Yoga and Tourism come together in a beautiful cocktail of experience and enjoyment when Olivera enters centre-stage.

Olivera Radovanovic shares powerful, positive, cheerful energy and creativity, and adds her skills to this practice using yoga pranayama, yoga nidra and meditation along with her long-standing interest in spiritual and personal development, intuitive ability, people skills for effective teaching and entrepreneurial and managerial skills.

Olivera creates success in all areas she enter into with Laughter Yoga including one-on-one coaching, key-notes, worskhops, and more.

In this Impromptu Conversation we will be talking about her passion for Laughter Yoga and Tourism.

To learn more about Olivera please visit her on www.smehjoga.rs.

Luis Gomez, Mexico

The prisons in Mexico has a real Laughter Yoga Champion, Luis Gomez, who works tirelessly to bring methods for change to those who may seem unchangable.

Luis works with the psychologists and staff in the prisons to provide programmes for rehabilitation.

The goal of his training has been to provide participants with another tool, so they can spread the joy with the groups they work in the prison system.

In this Impromptu Conversation we will be talking about Luis’ work in prisons and his life in Mexico.

Maki Kawakami, Japan

The realness and grace brought to Laughter Yoga through the work of Maki is outstanding when she facilitates with her natural flow of laughter, song and music.

From Japan comes a nature force of compassion, joy, light-heartedness and Laughter Yoga, it is Maki. We met first time at the first Global Laughter Yoga Conference in Frankfurt in 2017 and I found her work inspirational and refreshing.

She leads with an authenticity in her sessions and we will be discussing er approach at our Impromptu Conversations.

To learn more about Maki please visit her on www.naturalmaki.com.

Sandro Lobo, Brazil

A real trouper on a mission to change the world with laughter Sandro came to the UK, learned, returned to Brazil and wrote a book on Laughter Yoga.

Sandro came to the UK in 2017 to train with me as a Laughter Yoga Teacher, he learned, he brought the teachings back to Brazil, and he wrote a book.

He is on a path of changing the face of Brazil and I have no doubt Laughter Yoga is fully embedded in him.

In our Impromptu Conversation we will be talking about his journey, his book and healthy living.

To learn more about Sandro please visit him on www.yogadoriso.org.

Merv Neal, Australia

There is nothing more delightful and professional than Merv’s view on Laughter Yoga, and in this conversation he will shed more light on his Laughter Quotient and the impact it may have on us all moving forward.

Mr Laughter Quotient himself.

Merv values everything Laughter Yoga and I really get a sense of his passion for scientic and medical validation of the work.

He is joining me in this Impromptu Conversation to share his Laughter Quotient and his vision for Laughter Yoga from a professional angle.

To learn more about Merv please visit him on www.mervneal.com.

Linda Leclerc, Canada

A real pleasure to reconvene with Linda, when we connect the threads of what we started when we had a real impromptu conversation in early June.

Linda and I first met in 2015 when we celebrated Laughter Yoga 20th Anniversary together in the UK. We are HAHA Sisters.

She is the Mother of Laughter Yoga in Canada and is on a constant journey to share laughter through her live shares and her professional work.

If you are seeking inspiration, Linda is your girl with fun and depth to her sharing of Laughter Yoga there is no stopping her.

I look forward to concluding the Impromptu Conversations (for now) where we started, with Linda Leclerc and Lotte Mikkelsen.

For more information about Linda please visit her on www.yogadurire.com.

The For You YouTube Channel Idea

They are such fun and have so much energy even with two little sidekicks.

One of my wonderful Laughter Yoga Teacher suggested that I got in touch to hear about their interest in having a Laughter Yoga video set up for their channel and I am excited to now be the regular, resident For You Laughter Yoga Expert with ‘Lotte’s Laughing Yoga’.

Who are they, then?

Mike Hurst had a great idea!

The world was in a pretty bad place and he and a few others who were on furlough put their heads together with the thought they could make use of their time for something good.

Mike says

“I’ve always felt very privileged to meet and work with some amazing people with incredible stories that have helped me learn and shaped me. It felt like this was a good place to include some of those stories and have a diverse selection of things that might help people.”

Mike and his team came up with the name “For You”.

That is exactly what the channel is! It does exactly what it says on the tin in a combination of stories, hints and tips that may help some people through these challenging times.

A great team has now come together with Mike as the idea-man who involved his family for a starter.

Then Tim came onboard with his expertise in production and design.

Finally Rob and Phoebe joined the team to manage the production, growth through social media channels and supporting the design.

How about subscribing to the For You YouTube Channel?

There are two Laughter Yoga For You videos in the Health & Beauty section on

Arts E.X.P.L.A.I.N.E.D Podcast

I was invited as a guest on Arts E.X.P.L.A.I.N.E.D to talk about Laughter Yoga and was ever so excited.

We had so many laughs and we even had a task to perform during the podcast.

Rachel and Frances welcomes you to the Arts E.X.P.L.A.I.N.E.D podcast!

In each bite size episode they look at a different aspect of the arts in relation to theories, practice, research, philosophy, movements and roles within the arts.

They are Rachel and Frances.

Frances is an Actor, Writer, Drama Therapist and Comedian, she is currently writing ‘Oddcast’, and Rachel is a Movement Director, Educator and maker of Theatre, Opera and Film. 

They are two quirky young women with flair for the unusual and their talent span over a variation of things such as; Frances bakes, tries to recreate the Homemade Pom-bear and plays the ukulele, whereas Rachel draws nude bodies, she is learning Japanese Dojo and grows plants.

They are fun and knowlegable, great Podcast hosts and up for a good challenge. Thank you, ladies!

The Podcast is available on Morley at Home on https://www.morleyradio.co.uk.

A Reflection from Yours Truly

Welcome to Laughter Yoga in London and in the UK, I say…

Because UnitedMind IS the home for Laughter Yoga and I am the Laughter Yoga Master Trainer in the UK.

I am not saying this in a pompous or better-than-anyone-else way but simply because I made Laughter Yoga my business almost 18 years ago and I am passionate and committed to those who take on Laughter Yoga whether in training or in a workshop – simply because it has the potential for transforming lives.

When you practice Laughter Yoga every day in the recommended way without thoughts of…

  • who is listening
  • who is watching
  • what is for breakfast, lunch or dinner
  • what are my tasks today
  • my shopping list
  • walking the dog – oh wait, I don’t have a dog
  • and all the other things that whizz your mind into a frenzy of stress and overthinking

…then you have a real chance of changing your life to something that is truly positive and in line with your vision of life and mission in life.

It takes time and practice, and I assure you that there is freedom and peace of mind, opportunities and possibilities when you make the choice to venture through the gateway.

We are at a stage in the evolution of life and our world where we must find new ways forward.

In just 10 weeks life has changed, priorities have changed, relationships to a whole range of things have changed, perspective, outlook, ideas are becoming aligned with kindness and compassion, caring and sharing.

Laughter Yoga can be a real break-through method for maintaining a healthy view and an awesome life.

AND it takes practice, commitment and courage to be in the space of change.

We are in this world together so let us make it an outstanding and extra-ordinary experience!

I talk about laughter, I laugh about laughter, I cry laugh, and I live my life with laughter every day.

This has changed me in mind-boggling ways some like and others try to break.

Laughter Yoga makes you strong, connecting you with your true essence and life path. Be strong and have patience, grasshopper.

Here’s to sharing life’s magical transformation – together!

Love, Laughter and Peace

Laughter Yoga Master Trainer Lotte Mikkelsen

#ImBack and Laughter Yoga

Your Everyday Laughter Queen #youreverydaylaughterqueen

In May I shared laughter twice with the amazing #ImBack ladies, beauty director of Marie Clarie and wellness expert Lisa Oxenham and A list makeup artist and psychotherapist Lee Pycroft.

They support women in reclaiming who they were when they were most proud of yourself.

It was a real privilege to share a bit of Laughter Yoga wisdom with the experts and everyone who participated in the evening for Mental Health Awareness Week.

I recommend #ImBacks work big-time as they support us all in empowerment and awakening the glorious women we are.

Their very special group is on Facebook on www.facebook.com/groups/273233480022932.

Wine Women Wisdom and Laughter Yoga

In addition I had the true pleasure of sharing Laughter Yoga with another awesome group, Women Women Wisdom, set up by two fantastic entrepreneurs, Kerrie Maitland and Adrienne Saunders.

A group created for women to escape the hustle and bustle of life for a little while and come together to inspire. We add a drop of perfume when we join on Wednesday evenings.

Wine Women Wisdom can be found on winewomenandwisdom.

We are moving to Zoom in June, too, and still hope to be back in the 1st St Albans Scouts Wadley Hut in The Laughter Club International (UK) in St Albans in the not too distant future.

Laughter Club International (UK)

Laughter Leader Training Online

For more than 10 years I have been delivering Laughter Yoga Leader Training online.

Now more than ever has it become a great choice for getting a head start in the Laughter Yoga activities while we are all waiting for the time when we can meet with no thought other than that of laughing together in a shared space.

Laughter Yoga Leader Training online is a great and interactive way of learning.

The online training has become very popular and many courses are now scheduled with myself and my Accredited Teacher Colleagues.

We facilitate face to face via webcam on Zoom over 4 sessions which takes you through the full Laughter Leader programme covering the content of the 2-day in-person Laughter Yoga Leader Training.

In order to complete Laughter Yoga International certification as well as be eligible for the UK accrediation with FHT the course must be completed on Day-2 of the in-person training at a venue and dates scheduled, whether it is in London, St Albans, Durham or Preston.

Why wait? When there is opportunity to change the world online! Your first step to creating a positive outlook and inspire others to do the same.

You are given the tools and skills to start you own laughter practice and start learning the structure of a session as you practice with your friends and family, in a laughter club or online community sessions.

PLEASE NOTE, 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.

You can simply get your certificate and be ready but there are a few more requirements if you want the additional accreditation certificate. The training is accredited in the UK.

Laughter Yoga Training Accreditation has been a huge step in the process of standardising the way we teach Laughter Yoga in the UK and how we bring the techniques to people as a tool which is approved for CPD purposes.

May Thought from Yours Truly

It seems not long ago since we were sharing laughter in London and across the UK at conferences, workshops and training events.

For some, the time is whizzing by towards new ideas and venues, and for others it is snailing its way to something unknown that even feels unreal.

April saw a boom in the number of events, both laughter and other types, coming to life on Zoom, Facebook Live, Instagram Live, Google and many other platforms.

It is super-encouraging to experience the connection we all build via the online methods.

It is a time to share life and to let go of differences. For me it is also a lesson in letting go of thinking it is enough that I reach out because if someone is not willing to take the hand in peace then I cannot force an outcome of re-connection.

There is growth and learning in all relationships and all we do in life, whether we are willing to face it or not yet ready.

Little nagging issues where details have already gone missing over time become even more insignificant in the bigger scheme of things where we need to stand together, just like we do in the UK on Thursday evenings when we celebrate and cheer for our National Health Services and their people.

The current situation is an ideal moment in time for reflection and replenishing, removal of stuck patterns, resetting our self and recharging our light so we can shine on into the world with compassion and heart.

As mentioned Laughter Yoga Professionals from around the world spend their days sharing laughter online, connecting far and near in many languages. One thing is clear, laughter is the same regardless which origin you have and we become one when we share this universal language and values.

If you read my April Newletter you may remember that on 21 March I broke my left wrist. Since then I have been posting 1-minute videos I am posting on Instagram, TikTok and Facebook to cheer myself and hoping to inspire others to cope cheerfully in your and their situations. The videos are coming to an end on Saturday 2 May when the cast is coming off.

Week 1 and week 4 are available on YouTube and you can watch the fourth week below – if you wish…

Things happen and we cope to our best ability.

Having a daily practice of Laughter Yoga has helped me tremendously through ups and downs in terms of shifting my perspective and becoming more resourceful.

And remember, if ever there is a time to laugh it is when we are facing challenges. When we stand together, even at a physical distance, we can overcome the most amazing things, and our world will be vibrating at highest frequency of joy, love, laughter and grace.

Love, Laughter and Peace

Laughter Yoga Master Trainer Lotte Mikkelsen

Laughter Leader Training Online

In 2010 UnitedMind launched online training as a means for people to learn Laughter Yoga when there was no option for them in terms of suitable dates and venues.

This is a great option and the online training is VERY popular – especially at the moment.

The online training is facilitated face to face via webcam on Zoom over 4 sessions which takes you through the full Laughter Leader programme covering the content of the 2-day in-person Laughter Yoga Leader Training.

In order to complete Laughter Yoga International certification the course must be completed on Day-2 of the in-person training at a venue and dates scheduled, whether it is in London, St Albans, Durham or Preston.

The full certification on Day-2 is also a requirement for completing the additional accreditation.

Why is online Laughter Training available then if you have to complete in person?

Sometimes it is simply important to start the journey with Laughter Yoga and there are no other options than to start online.

You are given the tools and skills to start you own laughter practice and start learning the structure of a session as you practice with your friends and family.

The online training provides you with the skills and experience to run online laughter club sessions and it prepares you for completion of your training.

UnitedMind fully support our students and colleagues in completing their training to high levels without compromising quality and standards.

You can book your online training on the following dates from 10am-12:30am, or get in touch to organise your own dates and time to suit you via https://www.unitedmind.co.uk/product-category/training/4-week-online-laughter-leader-training/:

The Accredited Training Formula

Accreditation means our courses are recognised for CPD!
Always ask for your teachers training credentials.

You are always in good hands with FHT Approved Laughter Yoga Teachers!

PLEASE NOTE, 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.

You can simply get your certificate and be ready but there are a few more requirements if you want the additional accreditation certificate. The training is accredited in the UK.

Laughter Yoga Training Accreditation 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 which is approved for CPD purposes.

FHT Accredited courses from UnitedMind are

  • 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training
  • 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training
  • 1-day Laughter Yoga Coach Training

This is truly exciting 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 seriously and we are bringing the standards to another level of nationwide approval within the education system.

I would love to teach you and share my 17 years experience with you in London, St. Albans, Durham, Preston, 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 – when possible, of course.

A Thought from Yours Truly

On 13th March we celebrated Laughter Yoga 25th Anniversary online and I had the true privilege of sharing laughter with my colleagues and friends, my laughter family, from many different nations.

What a joyful happening!

We are currently facing times of unforeseen challenges that have a variety of impacts on us all.

However, amidst all this we stand together and support each other in the best possible ways.

Picture by Emma Lawton

Even if you are not trained in Laughter Yoga or Laughter Therapy the invitation to join our cheerful events online is open, and we are all welcoming you and anyone who would like to embrace the worldwide changes with the ability to smile and with a resourceful view on life as we knew it and as we are facing.

Nations joining their voices in one community of compassion and kindness, a voice that helps us all cope better with the changes.

Differences are being cast aside and forgiveness is the way to healing past wounds that no longer take precedence over our sense of belonging.

Many Laughter Yoga Professionals from around the world spend their days sharing laughter online, connecting far and near in many languages. One thing is clear, laughter is the same regardless which origin you have and we become one when we share this universal language.

On 21 April I broke my left wrist, being left-handed that is no laughing matter, but I decided to stay positive about it and I am inviting you to follow the altogether 42 x 1-minute videos I am posting on Instagram, TikTok and Facebook, links are listed above, so pick your favourite social platform if you would like a little morning-pick-me-up to start your day or later in the day.

You can watch the first week below…

I will repeat what I stated last month, Laughter Yoga is nothing short of a transformational miracle that happens at the curve of your lips.

We are all shining blessings waiting to fully recognise our own true essence along with our place in a unified world of laughter and joy, understanding and kindness. There is nothing religious or political about Laughter Yoga which is why it connects us all no matter who we are.

When we stand together, even at a physical distance, we can overcome the most amazing things, and our world will be vibrating at highest frequency of joy, love, laughter and grace.

Love, Laughter and Peace

Your Everyday Laughter Queen #youreverydaylaughterqueen

Update on the June Conference

The Playing Human Conference 2018 brought unbelievable joy and a real sense of community and connection to us all in London. See for yourself…

The Playing Human Conference runs every two years

In recognition of the current state of affairs around the world I decided, after taking advice from colleagues, to postpone the 2020 event until 2022.

You may ask why not 2021, but there are other large-scale events in the making for 2021 which is why The Playing Human Conference will be superfresh and ready for 2022.

Many of the delegates from 2020 have decided to transfer their ticket to 2022 and I am working on a preview of the event to happen online on Saturday 6 June 2020 with many of the speakers.

Hold onto your ticket instead of getting it refunded, there are many surprises coming in 2022!

We are filling Conway Hall again!

Get your ticket now – even if it is two years away it is a great time to plan your diary and remember this awesome event!

We are hoping and waiting for confirmation from all keynotes…

Meet all the speakers on www.laughteryogaconference.co.uk/the-playing-human-conference-2020/meet-the-key-notes-2020/ – there is still lots of information to read and people to get to know.

Laughter Leader Training Online

In 2010 UnitedMind launched online training as a means for people to learn Laughter Yoga when there was no option for them in terms of suitable dates and venues.

The Laughter Leader Online Training covers the content of the 2-day in-person Laughter Yoga Leader Training. However, the difference is that the group dynamics you experience in a group you face cannot be experiences in the same way.

The online training is facilitated face to face via webcam on Zoom over 4 sessions which takes you through the full Laughter Leader programme.

In order to complete the fully recognised Laughter Yoga International certification the course must be completed on Day-2 of the in-person training at a venue and dates scheduled, whether it is in London, St Albans, Durham or Preston.

The full certification on Day-2 is also a requirement for completing the additional accreditation.

Why is online Laughter Training available then if you have to complete in person?

Sometimes it is simply important to start the journey with Laughter Yoga and there are no other options than to start online.

You are given the tools and skills to start you own laughter practice and start learning the structure of a session as you practice with your friends and family.

UnitedMind fully support our students and colleagues in completing their training to high levels without compromising quality and nationals as well as international standards.

You can book your online training on the following dates from 10am-12:30am, or get in touch to organise your own dates to suit you:

A Thought from Yours Truly

When you share laughter you connect with your heart and the heart of those in the shared laughter space.

Kindness and love springs from our hearts and we become non-judgmental in that moment of connection and joy through our laughter-self-expression.

Too much fear of all sorts is surrounding us and it is a mind-thing that we can disconnect from when we start practicing our daily laughter.

Laughing takes you beyond overthinking and enables you to see past what you find challenging. The challenges are still there but they become easier to get through when you laugh. Even when at first you pretend to laugh.

Film Maker and Laughter Yoga Professional, Albert Nerenberg, created film, “You are what you act”.

Well, you ARE what you act and your acting takes you from fake laughter to real laughter in a very short time.

Laughter Yoga is nothing short of a transformational miracle that happens at the curve of your lips.

Love, Laughter and Peace

In June 2019 I took a journey to Oxfordshire to film, together with Digeo Productions, a video about Laughter Yoga for Oxford University students who have English as second language.

Oxford University Press, Digeo Productions

…and Laughter Yoga with Laughter Yoga Master Trainer Lotte Mikkelsen.

The project for Oxford University Press was fun and also had its language lessons as well as how to dress for cultural acceptance.

For example I had to learn specific non-threatening lines, not that I use threatening language anyway but formulated in a slightly different way than my daily speech.

The team was supportive and fun to work with and they came out with an amazing video production.

Thank you to Diarmuid and Digeo Productions for making the day fantasticly fun and educational.

The Transformational Moments…

…of Laughter in February.

Teaching Laughter Yoga Training to enable others to share Laughter Yoga is a true passion.

Facilitating workshops that create the first spark from connecting through laughter is another passion of mine that helps me understand the dynamics of any type of relationship better.

Last month I shared laughter with small groups of 10 people and large groups of over 500 people as well as all the inbetweens.

The only difference is that there are a few more people to engage with and manage in a Laughter Workshop with more people than less people.

We laughed in London with creative media people, in Whittington Hospital with cancer patients and their families and nurses, we laughed in Newport with Wickes store managers, in Alton with outdoors enthusiasts from Love Her Wild, in Croydon with Mencap, St Albans with Beavers and my weekly Larches Trust group were ready on Thursdays to throw in some good laughs and stories of their activities since last time.

In addition to this I had the fantastic opportunity to for the first time in all these 17 years share Laughter Yoga at a Stag Do. I have run many Hen Party laughter workshops over the year but the Stag Do with 10 Norwegian men coming to London for the weekend was a first and I invited my Laughter Ambassador Colleague, Melanie Bloch, to facilitate with me.

So much fun!

There were many more shared laughs but the essense is that we create change, positivity, and transformation when we let down our inhibitions and barriers.

We allow for something different to happen in our lives…

Laughter makes us feel good when we start laughing together and people like people who make them feel good!

We shared even more laughter at the training in London, St Albans, Durham and Hemel Hempstead with the new Laughter Yoga Leaders and Teachers who are now ready to take laughter to new places!

Please get in touch about UnitedMind’s training and workshops programmes as well as conferences and networking events, and other events via email, info@unitedmind.co.uk or call 0800 12 14 714.

The Inner Spirit of Laughter

After working toghether for a number of years in delivering Laughter Yoga Leader Training in London and Laughter Therapist Training in Hertfordshire, Melanie Bloch and I have developed a real nurturing space when we come together with our students.

We have launched our new 1-day workshop, The Inner Spirit of Laughter.

In this workshop you have a real opportunity to dive into your own laughter and discover the hang-ups, stops, inhibitions and more.

Through the discovery you enable yourself to find your true self-expression and way forward with laughter in your life.

“The Bigger Picture”

Connecting deep means your joy and inner spirit of laughter is allowed to surface and your sense of freedom is the true outcome of this workshop.

Spend a day of exploration into laughter, joy and your inner spirit of it all at only £40 in Stanmore.

A Thought from Yours Truly

Haydon Perrior Photo

We are entering into a transition where anything is possible and little is know of the outcomes we are all individually and jointly seeking.

A daily practice of Laughter Yoga brings you closer to yourself and your true nature as well as becoming less accepting of inauthenticity and knowing you have the choice to say no.

A Laughter Yoga practice also brings more acceptance and willingness to allow for forgiveness to be embraced even in the face of differences.

January offered me a wealth of new choices and realisations in terms of my work intergrity and ethics, and there are always some things I would never let go of and compromise, work integrity and ethics for example.

To be a trusted partner, provider, teacher, tutor, supplier, vendor, coach, connection in any business requires high standards and too often we give in to what is sometimes lack of confidence or belief in our own capacity for delivering miracles.

Happy Laughter Yoga Leaders January 2020

Laughter Yoga is nothing short of a transformational miracle that happens at the curve of your lips.

Love, Laughter and Peace

Gibberish in Bristol and St Albans

When we have completed the introduction to Gibberish at the Laughter Yoga Leader or Teacher Training I say to everyone that if they really like Gibberish they should come on the 1-day Gibberish Coach Training.

If they absolutely dislike Gibberish then they should come on the 1-day Cibberish Coach Training.

Why?

Because Gibberish is the most direct route to your playful self and the inner spirit of laughter.

Gibberish bypasses your thinking mind and connects with playfulness and creativity, you find solutions and opportunities for change and growth or simply another way forward in communication.

  • 07 March 2020 Bristol
  • 04 July 2020 St Albans

Book your place via www.unitedmind.co.uk/product-category/training/gibberishcoach.

The Inner Spirit of Laughter

After working toghether for a number of years in delivering Laughter Yoga Leader Training in London and Laughter Therapist Training in Hertfordshire, Melanie Bloch and I have developed a real nurturing space when we come together with our students.

We have now launched our new 1-day workshop, The Inner Spirit of Laughter, which runs in Stanmore.

In this workshop you have a real opportunity to dive into your own laughter and discover the hang-ups, stops, inhibitions and more.

Through the discovery you enable yourself to find your true self-expression and way forward with laughter in your life.

“The Bigger Picture”

Connecting deep means your joy and inner spirit of laughter is allowed to surface and your sense of freedom is the true outcome of this workshop.

Spend a day of exploration into laughter, joy and your inner spirit of it all at only £40 in Stanmore.

Booking on www.unitedmind.co.uk/product/inner-spirit-of-laughter.

The Moments we shared Laughter…

…for Life and for Living in January.

Haydon Perrior Photo

There was a big hoot about Monday 20 January, so-called “Blue Monday”, and although we may not completely favour the term all of us, it is a day that is in our conscious minds, the third Monday of January, as a depressing day where media and everyone in marketing is looking to create focus on bringing health and wellbeing to our mind and and mental coping mechanism.

Haydon Perrior Photo

We all have mental health and we have it all year around. However, Blue Monday is a focus day where just like other Mental Health Awareness Days, addresses the need for beating the January Blues – difference is that it was originally created with a marketing campaing for a travel agency in mind.

I believe that when we come with good intentions and create possibilities for people to brighten the days at a time when many people feel low it is of no essence whether it is January or another time – we still need the nurture and care.

Key point is for many that January is a long month following on from festivitas and expenses, and undoubtedly many people feel the cold and the pressure from new budgets.

Haydon Perrior Photo

There were many interviews and events taking place around the country to engage with people and lighten up January on this particular day, and I was in London facilitating 8 free workshops in promotion of Dry January with the brand, Atopia, which is a low-alcohol beverage.

Haydon Perrior Photo

I passed on three interviews and 3 workshops to my Laughter Yoga Colleagues and it is wonderful to know that we all benefit from laughing in a bid to combat the January blues.

At Benk + Bo we had some amazing sessions and people shared laughter and went on to have a cocktail and watch comedy shows downstairs.

Atopia Spirits and the organising team are the nicest people in the world and we had a wonderful day sharing laughter and joy on a grey Monday in January in London.

People like people who make them feel good!

A few recent comments from companies who chose Laughter Yoga to elevate moods and health throughout the year brilliantly point out that Laughter Yoga is about creating opportunities, and we all choose individually which opportunities that follow on from our experience:

“Was super impressed how Lotte used actual points from the previous presentations to include in her session. Super professional! A difficult group given the number of people and the shape of the room but worked well.”

Greencore


And a special conference held in Wales:

“It was even better than my expectations! The staff really enjoyed the experience. Some staff I have never seen smile or laugh before and it was great to see.”

NWSSP Legal & Risk Wales


And a comment from an extraordinary event in London:

“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. The at the end, I think everyone got the point and it had a significant impact on many in the room.”

VMWare

We shared even more laughter in London!

On Saturday 25 January 2020 my colleague Melanie Bloch and I had organised a Laughter Yoga Professionals networking event.

We were 18 Laughter Yoga Leaders and Laughter Yoga Teachers who met in Neals Yard Meeting Rooms and spent the day laughing, playing, eating, and creating a great sense of community and connection.

Everyone walked a way with an experience of being together sharing Laughter Yoga for the health and greater benefits of everyone we meet and engage in Laughter Yoga.

Already we are planning networking events in London on 23 January 2021 and in Stockport on 26 April 2020.

London can be booked already via www.unitedmind.co.uk/product/laughter-yoga-networking-event.

Please get in touch about UnitedMind’s training and workshops programmes as well as conferences and networking events, and other events via email, info@unitedmind.co.uk or call 0800 12 14 714.

Laughter Yoga Teacher Training

People from around the world come to the UK to train as Laughter Yoga Teachers

The 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training is delivered by the Laughter Yoga Master Trainer in the UK, only.

I have been teaching Laughter Yoga Teachers since 2012 and I am feel truly blessed and grateful that these teachers are now the same professionals I co-facilitate Laughter Yoga Leader Training with around the UK.

Beat the blues this winter

If you’re suffering from the winter blues there are a number of things you can do in order to boost your mood and feel better.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is thought to affect around two million people in the UK. Symptoms such as depression, lethargy, irritability, trouble sleeping, overeating, and feeling down and unsociable can present themselves in adults and children alike. It is thought that the cold weather and lack of natural light and vitamin D could be the cause of bouts of depression during winter. If you’re suffering from the winter blues it can seem like there is no escape; however, there are a number of things you can do in order to boost your mood and feel better…

  • Get outside and stay active: Exercise increases your level of endorphins – the happy hormone – which lifts your mood and makes you feel better. Going for a walk outside in the morning or middle of the day not only helps you to stay active, but the daylight hits the back of your retinas and your brain registers the light.
  • Stay warm: Being cold can make you feel more depressed; and studies have shown that staying warm can reduce the winter blues by half. Consume regular hot drinks and food, and wear warm layered clothing and warm, comfortable shoes. Aim to keep your home between 18 and 21C where possible, or at least heat the room in which you spend most of your time.
  • Eat properly: The old saying is very true – you are what you eat. If you eat rubbish then you will feel like rubbish! Eat a balanced diet rich in carbohydrates, lean protein, and fresh fruit and vegetables. Eating healthily means you’ll be getting the vitamins you need to help fight the blues, as well as avoiding winter weight gain.
  • Socialise with friends and family: It can be all too easy to turn down invitations and stay indoors moping about when it’s cold and dark outside. However, socialising has been proven to be very effective in helping to lift the mood so make the effort to go and see friends and family. You could even take up a new hobby that allows you to meet and interact with new people!
  • Seek help: If it all gets too much and you seem unable to alter your mood with the methods discussed above then it’s really important to speak to your GP. There are various ways in which SAD can be treated, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, lightbox therapy, and support groups. Don’t suffer alone in silence, there’s plenty of help out there for you but your GP needs to know what’s wrong so that they can help find the right solution for you!

A Past Year Reflection from Yours Truly

Welcome to a new decade, a new opportunity for laughter!

Even if our connection is simply on the UnitedMind mailing list for the time being.

Or perhaps we have connected via training, workshops or conferences, laughter clubs or telephone laughter, you are in my life because we share a common interest in something bigger than ourselves perhaps.

We will laugh again in 2020!

Last year I outlined the 2018 achievements and I am inclined to do so today, too, not to boast and brag, but to give you a sense of the growth and potential magnitude of change we create when we share laughter.

There were unparralelled opportunities for Laughter Yoga in 2019:

  • 158 x Laughter Workshops (44 of them run by my Laughter Colleagues)

That is pretty neat, I think.

Plus the 15 leader courses, 3 teacher courses, 8 therapist and coach courses, 11 laughter clubs.

In addition the rest of my time has been spent keeping 15 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 visiting friends and family.

However, these are just numbers and nothing can be added up to show a figure that truly expresses the sense of fulfillment, gratitude and joy I feel thinking about the people I have been blessed to meet and share moments of laughter with around London, the UK and Europe.

Laughter Yoga happens because you want it to happen.

My commitment to bringing Laughter Yoga to the world is a 100% non-negotiable dedication to the change that happens when we take on laughter as a way of being in this world of adult seriousness.

We pretend, and with pretence comes the reality of life changes – whether we choose seriousness or lightheartedness.

Keep sharing laughter liberally – until we share our next laugh together!

Love, Laughter and Peace

Lotte

Your Everyday Laughter Queen #youreverydaylaughterqueen

The Playing Human Conference – June 2020!

The Playing Human Conference 2018 was a blast and bringing back the memories of the people and the athmosphere is what the video below is all about. See for yourself…

When I returned from the International Laughter Yoga Congress in France early December 2019 I was excited to announce that Dr Kataria would be opening next years 25 Anniversary with us.

However, plans can quickly change and three weeks later the Kataria programme changed again so we will not have the pleasure of their company in London after all.

Now for the really exciting thing about 5-7 June 2020!

The speakers for The Playing Human Conference and Laughter Yoga 25 Anniversary in London on 5-7 June 2020 are outstanding human beings who are coming to share their wisdom, their spirit and their playful hearts with us.

Please meet Miriam Akhtar!

Miriam was one of the first positive psychologists in the UK.

She works as a trainer, coach and consultant and founded Positive Psychology Training to offer short courses in positive psychology combining the essential knowledge and tools in a short format that works for busy lives.

“Miriam is a real expert in her field. She has trained me and is excellent”. Melanie Franklin, Director of Agile Change Management.

Miriam brings skills and deep knowledge with her to our conference and I cannot wait to make her acquaintance when she joins us on Sunday 7th June 2020.

To read more about Miriam and her organisation please visit www.positivepsychologytraining.co.uk.

Only 53 tickets left!

There are surprises coming up so please keep looking out for introductions as we get closer to the conference in June!

Make sure you book soon as spaces are running out.

Did you notice who is coming to play with us all?

These truly motivational people are not only there to talk, they are coming to inspire and move us all with playfulness and attitude!

Please get in touch about The Playing Human Conference & Laughter Yoga 25th Anniversary, our courses, workshops, conferences, laughter clubs and other events via email, info@unitedmind.co.uk, phone 0800 1214 714 or mobile 07736 341 717.

Corporate Workshops teach you to be a better teacher

Global Innovation Forum London 2019

As a Laughter Yoga Teacher you train Laughter Yoga Leaders to facilitate to high standards.

Your leaders learn from your experience and your wisdom in your training comes from real life experience, delivering professional workshops.

Regardless how many times we deliver workshops to the delight of the delegates, once in a blu e moon there is a setup that works slightly different and perhaps a little bit out of sync with your own and participants expectations.

YO! SUSHI London 2019

Not all workshops go according to plans and we also receive feedback that makes the other successes fade on occasions.

However, the positive comments always outweigh any other feedback by eons.

Undoubtedly, we all want to do well in something we are passionate about, and it is wonderful to receive praise when you love what you do.

I have workshops that don’t receive 100% standing ovation but Laughter Yoga is Laughter Yoga and some love it others take longer to warm to the idea. With willingness to take part everyone can take away something from a Laughter Workshop.

ISMA Annual Conference London 2019

When you teach, your students want to know about what works but ALSO about what does not always work.

In essence the reason a Laughter Workshop is not just a copy of the previous one is because people are individuals, teams are different, organisations have standards that sets them apart from other organisations.

On top of this, the organisers have a very special event to plan, their event.

This is why a workshop is always a personal happening.

A few recent comments, first one from an amazing conference held in Northampton:

“Was super impressed how Lotte used actual points from the previous presentations to include in her session. Super professional! A difficult group given the number of people and the shape of the room but worked well.”

Greencore


And a special conference held in Wales:

“It was even better than my expectations! The staff really enjoyed the experience. Some staff I have never seen smile or laugh before and it was great to see.”

NWSSP Legal & Risk Wales


And a comment from an extraordinary event in London:

“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. The at the end, I think everyone got the point and it had a significant impact on many in the room.”

VMWare


Even when you think you have it all sorted, when you meet your group, that is when you know if what you planned will work or work less well.

I always prepare Plan B, Plan C, D, E etc and on rare occasions none of the plans work and the entiry workshop rests on pure improvisation.

Delivering Laughter Workshops is not as simple as it may seem.

There is a reason Laughter Yoga Leaders run Laughter Clubs and Laughter Yoga Teachers are ready to run corporate workshops, even if we all feel very ready for it all after two days training.

Never underestimate the importance of business accumen and professional communication skills to help you through your workshop discussion and presentation.

Business Experts Programme Online December 2019

My background in corporate technology companies has come in handy and I am really excited that the Business Experts Programme is gaining popularity.

I received a wonerful review from Wales recently:

I have recently completed the Business Expert Programme with Lotte of UnitedMind. I have worked with Lotte on 2 previous occasions – to train as a Laughter Yoga Leader & a Laughter Coach, & although I learnt a great deal to get me started in the world of Laughter Yoga from these 2 courses, I needed to progress my passion for sharing the benefits of laughter into a business model – & Lotte’s Business Expert Programme was the perfect course!
It was held via Zoom for convenience & broken down into 4 interactive and very engaging sessions, focusing on the key principals of creating a Laughter Business, from creating your perfect bio, to perfecting your presentation skills, marketing your services and running a business. It was an extremely helpful and practical course which has helped me form my business plan for the next 12 months and beyond.
Lotte is extremely knowable, professional & friendly. I look forward to working with Lotte again and highly recommend this programme.

The Accredited Training Formula

Accreditation means our courses are proper approved for CPD!
Always ask for your teachers training credentials.

You are always in good hands with FHT Approved Laughter Yoga Teachers!

PLEASE NOTE, 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.

You can simply get your certificate and be ready but there are a few more requirements if you want the additional accreditation certificate. The training is accredited in the UK.

Laughter Yoga Training Accreditation 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.

FHT Accredited courses from UnitedMind are

This is truly exciting 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 seriously and we are bringing the standards to another level of nationwide approval within the education system.

If you would like to train with me I would love to teach you and share my 17 years experience with you in London (with Mel Bloch), St. Albans (with Charlotte Clark), Durham (with Jan Turner), Preston (currently by myself), Bristol (with Sue Haswell), 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.
