And just to mention

Telephone Laughter Club also at 12noon

After more than six years of telephone laughter Monday to Friday at 7am to 7:10am The Telephone Laughter Club is extending it’s laughter hours with an extra timeslot at 12noon to 12:10pm from November 2014.

This is great news for people who have little or no time in the morning, or for those who like to have a snooze in the morning, or even to get colleagues together and laugh to start the lunch break which in turn can promote healthy digestion.

Why laugh on the telephone?

There are many reasons!

However, a key to gaining all the psychological and physiological benefits of laughing is to be able to extend the laughter from the typical 3-5 second social chuckle to a 10-15 minute hearty laugh. Furthermore, the effect or learning to laugh for no reason, and therefore not depend on outside stimuli, impacts all areas of life and promotes great health and happiness altogether.

It really is very simple; subscribe to connect to the live conference call and feel the knock-on effect as you laugh daily!

Choice between 7:00am-7:10am and 12noon-12:10pm:

  • Monthly £6
  • Quarterly £15 (saving £3)
  • Annually £50 (saving £22)

Choosing BOTH 7:00am-7:10am AND 12noon-12:10pm:

  • Monthly £10 (saving £4)
  • Quarterly £25 (saving £6 plus £10 = £16 per quarter)
  • Annually £80 (saving £22 plus £40 = £62 per year)

Corporate Events – great all year!

Laughter Yoga workshops, taster sessions, ice breakers, warm-ups and other events are not for entertainment only. There is real value to get from any event involving Laughter Yoga and the events are ideal for any corporate training event, conference or other professional setup.

Laughter workshops have traditionally been booked as one-off sessions but the value people tell they get from just one extended physical laugh is extra-ordinary and something worthwhile. Health and happiness is in focus and this is exactly the outcome of professional workshops involving Laughter Yoga, Emotional Intelligence and Gibberish.

UnitedMind offer long-term solutions based on daily, weekly, bi-weekly and monthly laughter sessions running regularly over a period of time.

This is the way so show results!

The outcomes of a long-term programme speak for themselves as people report an improvement in mood, less sick-days, creativity, enhanced memory and focus, motivation, productivity, great relationships, and much more.

How do you want your organisation or team to grow?

A lot about certified laughter training

You may have read it all before but seeing that laughter is of great importance in most people lives – even those who may not access it easily or regularly – I will risk repeating myself.

Since starting to teach the 2-day Laughter Yoga Leader Training back in 2007 (approximately 5 years into my laughter career) it has never ceased to amaze me the feedback from my students, my new laughter colleagues.

Laughter Yoga is not just about laughing it is about bringing the whole package of a healthy and happy life together.

I started running one course per year and increase with a few more when I started teaching in North-East England.

In 2010 I started offering the training to workplaces who recognised that bringing laughter to the staff or service users would have a positive effect on all. Many organisations began to appoint HR staff as Health and Wellbeing Officers, and these key people were often trained as Laughter Instructors.

I now teach more than 10 organisation per year to adapt a holistic health-view through training staff members as Laughter Instructors with the aim of running regular wellbeing laughter sessions for their teams. 10 organisations may not sound an awful lot but every organisation moves a mountain every time they learn Laughter Yoga and that is what moves me to continue my Laugther Yoga journey and my work with individuals as well as groups.

Undoubtedly one of the few instant releases of all stress, physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual, is achieved by practicing extended, hearty laughter for no reason.

Once a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader (or Laughter Instructor) there is a whole range of different development routes available (both for individuals as well as workplace instructors). Becoming a Certified Laughter Teacher is a very unique training and allows the teacher to train Laughter Yoga Leaders and in this way expand the network of Laughter Instructors in the organisation, community, or circle.

The 5-day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training is unique to the offering from UnitedMind and is based on the experience achieved from training almost a thousand Laughter Yoga Leader and running the same number of workshops and seminars.

From 2015 the 5-day training only runs twice per year, April in Durham and July in Hemel Hempstead. I strongly advise anyone who is serious about laughter and want to take your laughter to the next level to book this training now (or real soon) as spaces are running out.

There is no need to know Laughter Yoga and Yoga to come on the courses!

For anyone, whether in a workplace or outside work, who wants to learn how to bring more laughter to people and in the same instance benefitting yourself, you should go for it!
