Welcome to a brand new year!

The New Year brings a lot of exciting news and events, celebrations with laughter and ways to learn laughter.

It is a time of renewal with the ground beginning to break and starting to bloom with the early sprouting snowdrops.

Laughter grows from deep within, too. And sometimes it takes the time of reflection over winter before idea blossoms and inspiration hits the heart.

UnitedMind is ready with laughter coaching, training, workshops, and other events to help you gain momentum and reach your goals in 2017 from a place of mindfulness, joyfulness and stresseless living.

We celebrate 15 years in business out of which 10 years have been as a limited company, 10 years of teaching Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training, 5 years of training Certified Laughter Yoga Teachers, and many other amazing anniversaries.

I absolutely LOVE this work, and I love the difference it makes to real people in real lives.

Please step into laughter now – no more putting it off.

There is a world of change awaiting and laughter really does make a world of a difference!

If you have any questions or need more information about our methods, courses, workshops and how you can learn, please contact us on email, info@unitedmind.co.uk, or mobile 07736 341 717.

1-day training to bring you laughter for life

The new year is certainly set to be another exciting one for laughter!

The 1-day Certified Laughter Yoga Basic Learning Course is running in St. Albans on 4th February 2017 at Aboyne Lodge School on Etna Road and is already half-full after having been announced in the December 2016 newsletter. Here is a little recap on the 1-day programme:

What you learn during this one day of training includes

  • the background for the practice of Laughter Yoga
  • Laughter Yoga exercises to practice for yourself
  • breathing exercises important for your health and wellbeing
  • learn how to share Laughter Yoga with your friends and family
  • lots more about laughter and the benefits

This is what it is all about: an ideal day if you want to learn Laughter Yoga but you are uncertain about wanting to run a Laughter Club or laughter sessions. It is also ideal as a taster before you venture onto the 2-day Certified Laughter Yoga Leader or 5-day Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher training courses.

It is even ideal for your workplace training day!

Bringing laughter into your own life is the first step to changing the world!

If you have any questions or need more information about laughter and handling life’s stressful moments, please contact us on email, info@unitedmind.co.uk, or mobile 07736 341 717. Or book your place in UnitedMind’s Online Shop.

Laughter Workshops at Northumbria University Newcastle

As part of her third year dissertation I will be working with Sophie Bradshaw to complete a set of laughter workshops with measured outcomes. The laughter sessions will be taking place at Northumbria University Newcastle on 9th and 16th January 2017 and we are inviting you to join us from 1pm to 2pm.

Laughter shared is life changed

The year is already being filled with bookings for laughter workshops in organisations where disabled people have same opportunities as everyone else, where people living with cancer constantly change their lives, where children’s future is not defined by their past, where businesses come together to create positive change through focus and determination, universities, companies, and private groups.

The work of a Laughter Facilitator changes lives and I always say that I would rather run the workshop for you than not, and we will always find a way!

Laughter training opportunities

This video is from the first students who went on to become successful Laughter Yoga Teachers – please visit UnitedMind on YouTube to watch many more experiences:

As Laughter Yoga Master Trainer I feel truly blessed to work with inspiring and motivated people who go from being leaders to becoming teachers.

They take on communities, countries, universes to pave the way for positive change, and I am with them, with you, all the way.

Laughter Yoga Leaders take the initial step towards sharing laughter on a big scale and the 2-day Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training is just the beginning. It is the course where you find out if this is for you and you discover how you can create a positive impact in your own life as well as those you encounter.

Laughter Yoga Teachers mean business even moreso as they come with a determination to create more Laughter Yoga Leaders so the ripple effect of the laughter work we all do become multiplied.

When you train you learn to bring therapeutic laughter into areas of your life where it makes a real difference.

If you would like to join the Laughter Yoga Leaders and Teachers and start bringing laughter to yourself, your clients, team, organisation or home, or if you would like more information about Laughter Training for you or your team, organisation, group, please contact us on email, info@unitedmind.co.uk, or mobile 07736 341 717.
