Laughter Leader and Laughter Teacher

When thinking about the difference laughter makes in people’s lives there really is no excuse for not sharing it.

We all have different ways of sharing laughter – as jokes, comedy, sense of humour, our special warmth, and so on. However, this type of laughter is dependent on people being together laughing together.

Laughter Yoga brings a way of laughing for no reason to life in an instant and with it comes real and genuine laughter. This type of laughter which health and happiness and a great sense of belonging with it – even when you are not with the people you care about.
