The London Laughter Flashmob has been on people’s minds for a very long time. For years Laughter Yoga Leaders have been yearning for it to happen but the real challenge was for someone to pick up the torch…

The details are:

  • Saturday 5th July 2014
  • 1pm to 1:20pm
  • Trafalgar Squared, Central London
  • Wear a yellow top / t-shirt under your jacket, ready to reveal it and join in

Telephone Laughter and empowering your life

Since September 2008 The Telephone Laughter Club has been live and laughing. We giggle, chuckle and guffaw Monday to Friday from 7am to 7:10am to ignite the day in an empowering way.

Ailbhe Malone of BuzzFeed tried it throughout May 2014 and wrote an account of her experience. Laughter is for everyone and no one needs to be without it!

Telephone Laughter is not just for individuals but also the basis for a great start every day at any workplace in order to create and facilitate a positive work environment as well as beat any form of stress that may be holding staff back from being at their best.

For details of our telephone laughter, coaching, training and workshop programmes, please contact me on lotte@unitedmind.co.uk or phone 07736 341 717.

Why is Laughter Yoga so important?

Laughter connects us to ourselves, our colleagues and to the motivation for doing the work we do. When more people enjoy their jobs it leads to lowered absenteism and improvments in staff retention. Communication flows easier when you can laugh together for no reason, and mocking and bullying in the workplace is reduced.

Please get in touch if you feel your team, your workplace or your personal life could benefit from Laughter Yoga, lotte@unitedmind.co.uk or phone.

Laughter Yoga Leader North and South

The 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training is always a popular choice if you are looking to add that little extra sparkle to your life, finding ways of being more cheerful and upbeat about life, or help your nearest and dearest get in touch with their laughter.

Whichever is the driver for coming on this certified training course, it really does not fail you. You learn techniques you can use in your life as well as at work – or even to create your own workplace.

There are some really good early bird dates available at only £150 in the UnitedMind Online Shop.

Laughter Yoga Teacher – great career move

Laughter Yoga Teacher Training runs in Hemel Hempstead and in Durham. The courses are full of people who are on a journey through life but moreso on a mission to create positive and lasting change.

The decision to become a Laughter Yoga Teacher is often combined with a deepfelt desire to help people through challenges, and the impact of being part of the Laughter Yoga Teachers is one not to dismiss as our focus really is on the contribution we can make together instead of one of personal gain. Whatever your dream is, Laughter Yoga may be one to assist you in getting there.

It is not just about laughing loudly, we take on a lot more, for example World Peace, changing the face of Britain and other ‘little’ challenges – and we have fun getting there!
