Personal and Professional Development

Laughter Yoga is not only about laughing.

We bring personal development as well as professional development to the workshops and training when we encourage participants to let go of inhibitions, change perception, and be willing to change.

There is nothing dubious or weird or strange about the practice of Laughter Yoga. It is an exercise form that has taken a 13-16 million year old practice to new levels. The method of bringing real laughter about through simulating laughter is playful, fun and allows for creativity to flow through interaction and movement.

There are many ways to learn to become more in sync with yourself and your life and below is just an overview of some of the opportunities for personal and professional development with Laughter Yoga:

  • 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 – now at 7am, 12noon, and 6:30pm

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.

Laughter Leader and Laughter Teacher

The 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training on 5-6 March is now closed for registrations.

The Laughter Yoga Leader Training course is really popular and more people than ever are learning how to bring laughter into own and other people’s lives without the need for comedy, jokes, and even a sense of humour.

In the past I have heard people say they don’t have a sense of humour, don’t remember last time they laughed, used to laugh but find life so serious now – all of this can be challenged and changed by learning Laughter Yoga.

Dates are already diarised for 2015 and 2016 so please secure your seat now if you wish to make an entry to a world with more laughter…
