World Laughter Day 5th May 2013

Since 2006 we have celebrated World Laughter Day in St. Albans on the first Sunday in May. Each year Verulamium Park has provided the grounds for the laughter event but on 5th May 2013 we are moving to The Sopwell Nunnery Ruins on Cottonmill Lane.

We start laughing at 1pm and finish at 2:30pm. However, if we get it right we won’t stop laughing and being joyful for a very, very long time.

Please join us on Sunday 5th May where we will be laughing, playing, singing and also graduating a new Laughter Yoga Leader!

If you cannot join us in St. Albans please feel free to get in touch with the numerous people around the country who join the rest of the world in celebrating the Sunday with laughs and chuckles, giggles and guffaws.

The map is listed on the Events and News page on the World Laughter Day in UK website.

Gibberish Training – professional jibberjabber!

The Certified Gibberish Training premiered in St. Albans on 6th April 2013 with a team of nine hopeful nonsense students who soon becameGibberish Coaches.

You may think it is just a load of nonsense but the fact is that Gibberish is a powerful tool for improving communication, bettering teamwork, and coping with anger and stress challenges altogether.

Gibberish has a half-hour slot on the Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training and two hours during the Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher Training, however, the extent and possibilities that are available through these techniques requires a full day of practicing in order to fully comprehend the impact you can make throught the practice of Gibberish.

This training day is available to book for schools, organisations, businesses, teams and individual groups. Please get in touch to discuss Gibberish on info@unitedmind.co.uk.

Next Certified Gibberish Training runs in Peterlee, Co. Durham, on 24 May 2013 and in St. Albans, Hertfordshire, on 12 October 2013. Please book your space in the UnitedMind Online Shop.

Laughter 4 Life – transformation in four weeks

Attending a one-off Laughter Club session or a Laughter Workshop in the workplace is one thing but to actually get the full effect and long-lasting benefits of Laughter Yoga it takes more than one laughter experience.

There are many ways to learn the techniques and I always mention the training as a Laughter Leader or Laughter Teacher but this is not for everyone.

The Laughter 4 Life is a 4-week workshop programme for anyone who is ready to take laughter seriously as a way to combat stress, exclusion, health challenges, and cope with life’s ups and downs in general.

There is no guarantee it works if you don’t take part!

Next 4-week programme runs in June on 4, 11, 18, 25 June and you can book the full programme at only £80 for the four weeks until 10 May and then £120 in the UnitedMind Online Shop.

Laughter is Serious Business

As a newly trained Laughter Professional you may find it a challenge to decide where to take your ideas and new venture.

Join me on this one-day workshop and harvest some of the experience I have gained from more than 10 years of promoting a holistic business. My experience prior to founding UnitedMind comes from over 20 years of work in national and international corporations’ technology, sales and marketing departments.

You get much more than a PowerPoint presetation in this workshop! Book online.

Laughter Training – walk your talk!

‘Know laughter, do laughter, be laughter’ are wise words from Dr. Madan Kataria, Founder of the Laughter Yoga Movement and The International Laughter Yoga University.

In order to be a great teacher, no matter what the topic is, you must practice it and feel it. The essence of Laughter Yoga is not only laughter but it is a way of being from a place of joy and actually liking life.

Too much stress clouds the minds of many people and important things, like sharing and caring, are often put aside for less valuable things such as money and belongings.

The Laughter Yoga trainings teach laughter – quite obvious, I may add – but it is also the first step in familiarising yourself with your emotional intelligence as well as tackling stress, worries, upsets and other events.

The courses are both personal and professional development, enriching your life in ways that are different in every group of learners.
