Wecome to 2015

Welcome to a brand new, healthy and happy year with excellence through Laughter Yoga and mindful living.

There is nothing small in being on the path to positive change when the world seems serious and at times un-conquerable.

On a few occasions my chosen profession has seemed to me to have been a poor choice but fortunately for me these occasions have been passing moments and I my pondering moments have turned to joyfully contemplating the many amazing life-changing experiences I have been so blessed to share with thousands of people.

A new year brings renewed energy and focus as the days are getting longer and we leave the indulgence of the holiday season, venturing into refreshing new days, reminding ourselves to write ‘2015’ instead of the old year. As well as reminding ourselves that the 2014 has gone and our experiences can be left safely where they belong, in the past.

2015 brings new hope, business, wonders and most importantly a new season of extra-ordinary life, no matter what challenges we face, whether they be losses or wins.

Learn from 2014 and the past, bring postive change to 2015 and be present where it all begins – here and now in this very moment!

Another fantastic year awaits and remember it starts in the now!

May 2015 be another great year for you! for health and happiness! and for Laughter Yoga!

Wishing you health, wealth, joy and happiness in abundance for 2015 and the years to come.

StaffLaugh and Laughter Coaching

In 2012 we launched the StaffLaugh project which takes laughter into workplaces on a daily basis.

Since then there has been an increase in the number of organisations and businesses who take laughter seriously as a tool for staff retention, stress management, lower absenteism, teamwork, and other workplace related challenges.

The StaffLaugh project is a long-term, long-lasting, and flexible solutions based on daily, weekly, bi-weekly and monthly laughter sessions running regularly over a period of time with no disruption to the daily work routine or very little impact on your daily activities other than in a positive way.

There are many ways to learn to incorporate laughter and Laughter Yoga and Laughter Thepary into your daily work and home life, for example

  • train as a Laughter Yoga Leader and run your own staff sessions, community groups or professional workshops
  • train as a Laughter Yoga Teacher and do as Laughter Yoga Leaders PLUS teach new Laughter Yoga Leaders
  • train as a Laughter Facilitator/Therapist and deliver team building, stress management and coaching based on laughter
  • invite us to run Laughter Workshops at your personal or professional events
  • book a long-term programme for your team
  • learn laughter every day on the 8-week Laughter Coaching Programme
  • laugh every day on The Telephone Laughter Club

These are just a few examples of what is available and how you can take on permanent, positive change in your life, communities and beyond.

Certified Psychology of Laughter

UnitedMind deliver Laughter Yoga training, workshops, and coaching. We also deliver programmes based on other technologies such as mindfulness, psychology, emotional intelligence, neuroplasticity, and alternative methods of healthy living.

The Psychology of Laughter 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. Although the training aims at enabling you to facilitate this is not a requirement at all.

Oftentimes people come on the facilitator courses to learn techniques to bring into own life as much as those who want to teach other people the techniques, so whether you want laughter for yourself or you want to bring it to others, this is a great opportunity to pick up a strategy for a healthy and happy outlook and life altogether.

For more information on our programmes for promoting health and happiness for you or in your workplace and at home, please contact us via email, info@unitedmind.co.uk, or mobile 07736 341 717.

Making UK a Unique Country

As mentioned in our previous news the 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training runs only twice in the UK in 2015, once in Durham and once in Hemel Hempstead.

The UK has a reputation of being moaning and complaning at the first sight of a challenge – mainly by people in the UK but also as a bit of a supported tremd outside the UK.

Through developing Laughter Yoga Teacher, Laughter Yoga Leaders, Laughter Therapists our goal is to help people look at the more positive sides of any event whether they can be perceived as negative or not.

Practicing laughter techniques really does change your mindset and continuing to practice these techniques has a long-term effect on all aspects of life.
