The June Diary and Corporate Workshops

Corporate events are running regularly online on Zoom, Google, Microsoft and other platforms, so our diary is looking busy with training and workshops becoming regular again – albeit online.

There are many online events to take part in as well as the opportunity to organise your own events with your team, group or workplace, as well as your family and friends.

We connect easily through laughter and help each other cope with the day-to-day life during lockdown which remains for the time being for main individials, companies, groups, and organisations.

Get your peers involved in fun, lighthearted laughter online.

The sessions are professional and engaging so even if we have to wait sharing laughter in person we still benefit.

Get in touch about laughter workshops online on email info@unitedmind.co.uk or phone 07736341717.

We am here to cheer and care!

Meanwhile please also follow UnitedMind Laughter Yoga on Social Media.

Once we are ready to share spaces in person again I will once again travel to where laughter is needed and where there are people willing to share laughter.

Give the gift of laughter to someone you care about all year.

Available in London, across the UK, and Elsewhere

Our teachers are super-knowledgable, fun, intelligent, relatable, kind and professional, making sure you get maximum value from your training choice(s) – at our venues around the country or your own venue for workshops or training, when we are all ready – or right now online.

A Reflection from Yours Truly

Welcome to Laughter Yoga in London and in the UK, I say…

Because UnitedMind IS the home for Laughter Yoga and I am the Laughter Yoga Master Trainer in the UK.

I am not saying this in a pompous or better-than-anyone-else way but simply because I made Laughter Yoga my business almost 18 years ago and I am passionate and committed to those who take on Laughter Yoga whether in training or in a workshop – simply because it has the potential for transforming lives.

When you practice Laughter Yoga every day in the recommended way without thoughts of…

  • who is listening
  • who is watching
  • what is for breakfast, lunch or dinner
  • what are my tasks today
  • my shopping list
  • walking the dog – oh wait, I don’t have a dog
  • and all the other things that whizz your mind into a frenzy of stress and overthinking

…then you have a real chance of changing your life to something that is truly positive and in line with your vision of life and mission in life.

It takes time and practice, and I assure you that there is freedom and peace of mind, opportunities and possibilities when you make the choice to venture through the gateway.

We are at a stage in the evolution of life and our world where we must find new ways forward.

In just 10 weeks life has changed, priorities have changed, relationships to a whole range of things have changed, perspective, outlook, ideas are becoming aligned with kindness and compassion, caring and sharing.

Laughter Yoga can be a real break-through method for maintaining a healthy view and an awesome life.

AND it takes practice, commitment and courage to be in the space of change.

We are in this world together so let us make it an outstanding and extra-ordinary experience!

I talk about laughter, I laugh about laughter, I cry laugh, and I live my life with laughter every day.

This has changed me in mind-boggling ways some like and others try to break.

Laughter Yoga makes you strong, connecting you with your true essence and life path. Be strong and have patience, grasshopper.

Here’s to sharing life’s magical transformation – together!

Love, Laughter and Peace

Laughter Yoga Master Trainer Lotte Mikkelsen

#ImBack and Laughter Yoga

Your Everyday Laughter Queen #youreverydaylaughterqueen

In May I shared laughter twice with the amazing #ImBack ladies, beauty director of Marie Clarie and wellness expert Lisa Oxenham and A list makeup artist and psychotherapist Lee Pycroft.

They support women in reclaiming who they were when they were most proud of yourself.

It was a real privilege to share a bit of Laughter Yoga wisdom with the experts and everyone who participated in the evening for Mental Health Awareness Week.

I recommend #ImBacks work big-time as they support us all in empowerment and awakening the glorious women we are.

Their very special group is on Facebook on www.facebook.com/groups/273233480022932.

Wine Women Wisdom and Laughter Yoga

In addition I had the true pleasure of sharing Laughter Yoga with another awesome group, Women Women Wisdom, set up by two fantastic entrepreneurs, Kerrie Maitland and Adrienne Saunders.

A group created for women to escape the hustle and bustle of life for a little while and come together to inspire. We add a drop of perfume when we join on Wednesday evenings.

Wine Women Wisdom can be found on winewomenandwisdom.

We are moving to Zoom in June, too, and still hope to be back in the 1st St Albans Scouts Wadley Hut in The Laughter Club International (UK) in St Albans in the not too distant future.

Laughter Club International (UK)

You can find an overview of online and telephone laughter currently available through UK Laughter Yoga Professionals on www.telephonelaughter.co.uk.

Please get in touch about the laughter clubs and other options via email, info@unitedmind.co.uk, phone 0800 1214 714 or mobile 07736 341 717.

Laughter Leader Training Online

For more than 10 years I have been delivering Laughter Yoga Leader Training online.

Now more than ever has it become a great choice for getting a head start in the Laughter Yoga activities while we are all waiting for the time when we can meet with no thought other than that of laughing together in a shared space.

Laughter Yoga Leader Training online is a great and interactive way of learning.

The online training has become very popular and many courses are now scheduled with myself and my Accredited Teacher Colleagues.

We facilitate face to face via webcam on Zoom over 4 sessions which takes you through the full Laughter Leader programme covering the content of the 2-day in-person Laughter Yoga Leader Training.

In order to complete Laughter Yoga International certification as well as be eligible for the UK accrediation with FHT the course must be completed on Day-2 of the in-person training at a venue and dates scheduled, whether it is in London, St Albans, Durham or Preston.

Why is Laughter Training available online then if you have to complete in person?

Why wait? When there is opportunity to change the world online! Your first step to creating a positive outlook and inspire others to do the same.

You are given the tools and skills to start you own laughter practice and start learning the structure of a session as you practice with your friends and family, in a laughter club or online community sessions.

PLEASE NOTE, The Laughter Yoga Training is still certified with a standard international certificate issued by Laughter Yoga International and co-signed by your teacher(s) which you receive at the end of the 2-day or 5-day training.

You can simply get your certificate and be ready but there are a few more requirements if you want the additional accreditation certificate. The training is accredited in the UK.

Laughter Yoga Training Accreditation has been a huge step in the process of standardising the way we teach Laughter Yoga in the UK and how we bring the techniques to people as a tool which is approved for CPD purposes.

FHT Accredited courses from UnitedMind Laughter Yoga are

With accreditation we are taking Laughter Yoga seriously and we are bringing the standards to another level of nationwide approval within the education system.

The Accredited Teachers and I would love to teach you and share our jointly move than 40 years experience of teaching Laughter Yoga with you in London, St. Albans, Durham, Preston, Dawlish and your venue if you want to organise your own dates with your group of minimum 4 people, as well as one-on-one in Hemel Hempstead, Stanmore and Dawlish – when possible, of course.
