Laughter Yoga – just do it!

UnitedMind was founded in 2002 and back then it was a combination of holistic therapies and personal laughter coaching that paved the way for bringing wellbeing and change through laughter to the British households.

Most of us want more laughter!

It is our vision to create a household brand with Laughter Yoga – not to push to the back of the cupboard with 5-spice and other out-of-date tins, but to practice daily laughter exercises in all parts of the UK.

We are on a serious mission and there is no going back to life without laughter!

Laughter Yoga may seem like a strange thing to do when all we want is real, genuine laughter but with the instant benefits including the real laughter emerging rapidly, it is undoubtedly a great way through life’s ups and downs. We break down barriers and inhibitions, and we cope with our daily challenges at work as well as at home.

Is becoming more generous, compassionate, and loving really such a bad thing? Is suspiscious behaviour really a way forward? Laughter Yoga is not about religion, politics, arguments, telling great jokes, being right or wrong, or even in control.

Laughter Yoga brings out the best in us because there is no mocking laughter, no laughing at, no bullying, no feeling left outside – it is all about inclusion.

Share your heart, wear your heart where it matters.

Choose Laughter Yoga now instead of waiting for the ‘right time’ – the ‘right time’ is not in the diary or on the face of a watch.

How much is an extra-ordinary life worth? What is the value of kindness?

All of these ways of being develops with your mindfulness and compassion when you practice Laughter Yoga.

In the UK more and more Certified Laughter Yoga Leaders and Certified Laughter Yoga Teachers develop communities of laughter and joy and the face of Britain is changing.

Teams in corporations and organisations across the country train to bring laughter to their staff and service users.

Latest story was brought to you by ITV’s Lorraine Kelly on 24th November 2015, and it happens all over the country.

Certified Laughter Therapy Training

The Laughter Therapist Training takes you on a journey through different ways of presentation, various ways of using laughter in life and in workshops, the meaning of laughter that we add, and it teaches you to structure a professional presentation.

The course is a philosophical as well as practical course where we will get in touch with the inner-most laughter, and discover what REALLY tickles the giggles.

At the end of the training you will receive a certificate that enables you to obtain insurance to practice and facilitate laughter workshops, it is not a Laughter Yoga Certificate but this training may be a great addition to your existing certification. This programme adds depth and width to the knowledge and wisdom of Laughter Yoga by bringing together the technology with the latest research.

The Laughter Therapy Training addresses the much needed aspect of mind and mentality at play in joyfulness and fun. It is a unique, innovative and new way of learning laughter and joyfulness with a view to present and teach.

Please note that this course is currently going through an accreditation process and the fee may increase as of January 2016.
