Laughter Yoga Teacher – an evolving journey

When you decide to laugh every day it is life-changing and it is for life.

Laughter changes us and makes us more human altogether, and Laughter Yoga is a tool to assist in becoming that human being who embraces life, work, and all that we are. We become more sharing and caring as people, and that sense of feeling good about everything reaches into the workplace and our life with people we care about or care for.

Laughter does not remove challenges of life, believe you me, but adopting our playful nature back into our lives makes everything more manageable and it feels easier to keep ‘the golden overview’.

A note: I have been a Brit since August 2001 but I still embed some of the expressions from the Danish language and translate directly, I think ‘the golden overview’ is one of them, meaning ‘everything under control’…

Since 2012 I have has often been mentioning the Laughter Yoga Teacher Training, which is indeed very unique in the UK as UnitedMind is solely providing this training for the market here, however, with all these mentions there is in fact a very important message and encouragement if you are on a mission to become healthier and happier or to spread laughter, health and happiness to those around you.

The five days we spend together learning and laughing, playing, singing, dancing and most importantly moving barriers and letting go of inhibitions, are not to be diminished. Whether you go and change the world with laughter or you make yourself a promise to be more approachable, kind or something completely different – there is no doubt that being on the training creates true transformation.

Laughter Yoga is for everyone – including people who are already very succesful in life and at work!

London Laughter Flashmob – the video!

It was so much fun!

What we failed to realise was that the Tour de France team had organised a grand stage with bands playing every hour of the day so when we arrived in our yellow t-shirts, as we had agreed, we were pleasantly surprised to see many people already there to join us – of course, they weren’t there to laugh, they were there to support the Yellow Jersey of Tour de France…

We laughed for almost 15 minutes in an organised group at Trafalgar Square.

Please watch and share YouTube Laughter Flashmob 4th July 2014 http://youtu.be/NPYLon6rhBI.

Coming to the Laughter Club…

Over the past 12 months I have had the great pleasure of laughing with a amazing group of adulst with learning difficulties and disabilities together with their carers. The group have been coming to The Rose Garden Laughter Club in Bushey since June 2014 and have been adding lots of laughter to an otherwise small monthly group.

This is a real-life example of people who have taken Laughter Yoga into their lives and enjoy the exercises with their peers as well as their carers. When I laugh with them in The Rose Garden I get requests for the laughter exercises they enjoy most and they often invent new laughs and we share the giggles.

This is what a Laughter Club is all about!

Returning laughter club members who take an interest in what we do and how we do it.

Thank you for laughing with me. I hope you will always return from May to August when The Rose Garden Laughter Club is meeting!

 Laughter Clubs are for everyone but not everyone will find it suitable for themselves, and I have seen people walk away from groups, after only a few moments of laughing or listening, without a comment. We all make our own choices and my only hope is that laughter plays a big part in everyone’s life whether it is as Laughter Yoga or other forms of unconditional laughter.

We laugh because we benefit and we share these benefits!

Next Laughter Club dates in Hertfordshire:

  • Monday 18 August 2014 12noon to 1pm Rose Garden in Bushey
  • Monday 18 August 2014 7pm to 8pm Sopwell Nunnery Ruins in St Albans

Laughter Yoga creates extraordinary lives!

Laughter Yoga Leader North and South

After returning from two days of Laughter Yoga Leader Training in Durham in North-East England it once again struck me how fortunate I am for being able to teach people techniques that can change lives on the spot.

Following the two days of training there are still a lot of unanswered questions about Laughter Yoga, what to do now, how to do it and who to laugh with – to mention a few of the regular things that pop into mind.

A lot of these topics are discussed at the training and following from the training there is a large network of likeminded Laughter Professionals who share experiences and best practices. So if you are hesitating because of the unknown following the training please rest assured that you are not alone.

It is a fun course with a serious undertone but we always keep it lighthearted.

There are some really good early bird dates available at only £150 or as a Refresher course at only £75 in the UnitedMind Online Shop.

  • St Albans is running on 27-28 September – this may be your last chance to train in St Albans as all our scheduled 2-day trainings will be held in London and in Durham from 2015
  • London on 23-24 October is already getting full so don’t wait!
  • Durham on 27-28 November is booking now
  • Your workplace training if you have more than 6 people to train
