Looking into Autumn from Yours Truly!

Laughter yoga is my business and my dream come true – to share laughter in workplaces and with individuals who then share more laughter.

In 2002 I started my business in a small way while working part time for someone else and it worked well at the time.

Then in 2010 I made it my full time business – I believed it was possible and I had the opportunity to make it happen.

I believed in my dream of helping people heal with laughter and through laughter. I believed in my dream that I had come into this world for something bigger than working for someone else.

10 years later my dream was still going strong and my business growing and flourishing. 11 years later my dream is still going strong and my business is regaining its strength.

However, 2020 brought some unforeseen challenges and although busy there were areas that did not work because we simply could not meet in person.

A year ago I made a choice to work for someone else while things settled and to support my living while UnitedMind and Laughter Yoga in the UK recovered from the shock of the health wave that hit many people, communities, and businesses so hard in 2020.

So please forgive me if I have been less present and slightly absent at times while I have been workhing my dream alongside someone else’s vision.

It has been busy and my Laughter Yoga work has escalated with plenty of corporate workshops and events, which I love facilitating. The corporate workshops have grown and become a truly successful workplace venture affecting many people every day.

I have many great stories of joy to share! Thank you.

Thank you to all teams and managers, workplace health ambassadors, and groups who have taken Laughter Yoga to your organisations, there is much more to come.

As Laughter Yoga Master Trainer I have also been able to bring the Laughter Yoga Training to many through online courses and have given people the opportunity to start the change they would like to see in their lives and the lives of others.

I love helping others achieve their dreams or simply start on the path of that dream whether it is with Laughter Yoga as key or simply as part of a bigger picture.

UnitedMind and Laughter Yoga in the UK is growing and there is change coming!

My hope for autumn is change! And I see it happening.

I trust in the change and abundance of opportunities that the coming months will bring to us all. Now is the time Laughter Yoga has a true impact in all of our lives.

For the first time since January 2020 the 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training is ready to roll, and we start on 9th August.

Now, that is one change that is in full motion – coming together again.

We change the world together but we make the first move alone!

Here is to joint efforts and dreams come true!

Your Everyday Laughter Queen and UnitedMind Laughter Yoga is more committed than ever to bringing joy and laughter, health and happiness to the home and to the workplace.

Love, Laughter and Grace

Wild Weekend South with Love Her Wild

In February 2020 I shared laughter with Love Her Wild at their anniversary.

Love Her Wild was founded by Bex Band and she says “the best thing that ever happened to me was going on an adventure! It improved my physical and mental wellbeing. It boosted my confidence. It gave me some of the greatest friends and instilled a passion for protecting the environment.”

The Wild Weekend brings together Wilders for a weekend of camping, learning new skills and listening to inspiring stories while having the space to relax with yoga, meditation or just being with like-minded women. It’s a great weekend – you won’t want to miss it!

To read more about Love Her Wild please visit www.loveherwild.com.

Laughter Yoga Training – in August and onwards!

Becoming a Laughter Yoga Leader, Laughter Yoga Teacher or Laughter Yoga Coach – the choice is yours!

The beginning of any Laughter Yoga training journey evolves around the 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training.

During the two days you learn to facilitate a laughter club and you get an understanding of the depth of the work we do with Laughter Yoga, including exploring the benefits.

Even if you do not wish to teach Laughter Yoga for many leaders the 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training is a great choice as it adds breadth and width to their skills and knowledge.

The five day training is the foundation for becoming a professional provider of Laughter Yoga workshops. However, you must run your Laughter Club in order to learn and become sufficiently skilled in the Laughter Yoga practice.

Once you become a teacher another avenue opens for you.

You have the option of providing one-on-one Laughter Coaching to individual clients.

It is essential to note that Laughter Coaching is not for everyone and to provide a fulfilling programme to individual clients you as Laughter Coach must be comfortabel with your own laughter and running individual Laughter Yoga sessions.

The reward in sharing laughter is outstanding! Whether it is in groups or with one-on-one clients.

More information about the different programmes is available on

Upon completion of Laughter Yoga training with UnitedMind and Laughter Yoga Master Trainer Lotte Mikkelsen you will receive the Laughter Yoga International Laughter Yoga Certificate and be eligible for the UnitedMind accredited training certification.

UnitedMind is registered with our insurance company as a training provider which means that our certificates grant you insurance.

When you choose your training provider please make sure you check their credentials as online training methods and courses are not always covered by insurers.

There are a few more requirements if you want the additional accreditation certificate.

Laughter Therapist Training with Lotte and Mel

Becoming a LaughterTherapist is a really special achievement that requires true human insight, awareness, and a willingness to release own trauma, stories, and tension.

Melanie Bloch and I facilitate the Laughter Therapist Training together on 21-22 August in Stanmore, a course that was developed by myself over many years and brought together in unity with Mel.

It is an amazing course!

Mel brings an essence of love, forgiveness and pure being to the course and together we take you on a journey of self-discovery to enable you to assist others on their one jouney to joy and laughter.

The Laughter Therapist Training starts with 2 days spent together, and then the real training begins when you take on 2 case studies each running over 8 sessions.

This course is equivalent to Level 7 training. The requirement for the training is to have a practicing background as therapist, holistic therapist or counsellor.
