Laughter Yoga Leaders and Teachers meeting

Almost 30 Laughter Yoga Leaders and Laughter Yoga Teachers spent Saturday 24 October together at London Welsh Centre planning and playing.

The Laughter Yoga community of professionally trained people in the UK is growing as is on a mission to share true, real life benefits with everyone.

We came together to discuss professional methods, compliance, governance, laughter, and to play and have fun!

And we went away with a sense of great achievement, with new friendships, fresh ideas, and with Laughter Yoga oozing from us all!

Next time we meet is Saturday 19 March 2016 in Leeds and Sunday 24 April in London. Book your place now on www.unitedmind.co.uk/shop/.

Health and wellbeing through laughter

I am delighted and excited to see an increase in the number of organisations/workplaces who are now taking laughter seriously.

More and more companies are returning for more laughter to be brought to their staff, not just for one-off laughter sessions but also to find ways to make the benefits of the laughter sessions sustainable.

Healthy and stressless living is what everyone wants and the fastest route to lowering stress is laughing. It gives you an instant relief from tension and stress, and when practiced regularly laughter can change the face of anyone living a fast-paced worklife as well as personal life.

We are killing ourselves with often self-induced stress!

Self-induced, you may say, and I say yes, because we need to take responsibility instead of pushing it onto the outside circumstances blaming targets, ‘if I don’t then…’, colleagues, traffic etc. Our fear of lack is getting in the way of enjoying life.

Practicing Laughter Yoga and enjoying the benefits that come from the practice does not remove the challenges we face.

However, we are left with a ‘can-do’ attitude which essentially gives us the energy and motivation to be at out best regardless of what is coming our way – and have a great day being at our best!

Last month I wrote that to fully get the long-term benefits of incorporating team building, stress management, communication skills and other essential tools based on Laughter Yoga and Gibberish into a workplace, we recommend a 3-6 months programme to enhance the learning and the benefits of the technology to the team and/or organisation.

There are other ways, too…

  • Train your team to incorporate laughter sessions into your breaks
  • Subscribe to a telephone laughter session
    – or organise a timeslot for your team
  • Say good morning to your colleagues
    – even when the morning seems less good…
  • Those random little sunshine acts of kindness

Laughter Yoga not only delivers immediate personal change but also a wide variety of professional change to benefit any organisation whether in the public, private or third sector.

Undoubtedly the testimonials speak for themselves but it is the first hand experience that counts.

Laughter Facilitation in workplaces, schools, etc

The Laughter Yoga Basic Training provides a great platform for bringing wellness through laughter into any workplace, school or community.

During the 1-day training any health representative can optain a certificate that allows them to share the benefits of Laughter Yoga with their groups.

However, for long-term benefits of sharing improvement in health, motivation, connection and overall outlook the 2-day Certified Laughter Yoga Leader course comes highly recommended. Team across the UK bring laughter into their workplaces, to staff and service users, students and teachers, family and friends, delivering regular laughter sessions simply because it is so, so good for you!

The 2-day training can be organised at dates to suit, over 2 full days or 4 half days, and with a minimum of 4 people. For your workplace, school or personal group.

Developing your skills does not necessarily stop there!

There is a route to ensuring the health and wellbeing of any organisation whether it is the family organisation or a workplace or other group. With the Laughter Yoga approach you create long-term sustainable positive change and through practicing the techniques daily your community is nourished in a fun and healthy way.

Laughter without mocking, bullying, joking – simply through fun and playfulness servicing everyone, creating strong connections and confidence.

The benefits are many and well-documented. For specific research please contact us on info@unitedmind.co.uk.

Certified Gibberish Training

Learning a new language can for many people be a big challenge.

Communicating effectively does not always imply that you have to master a language to the full stop.

Gibberish gives the opportunity to add an extra dimension to any communication. You learn to express your emotions, how you feel about certain things, you learn to listen, and respond – all without any hurt or pain.

What is not to like?

It is fun, groundbreaking and essential for improving team work and communication skills.

The Certified Gibberish Training is now running online on 27 January 2016 and in St. Albans on 23 April 2016.

This is also an ideal training day for your team, for any team whether in the workplace or among friends and family.

To book your place at early bird rate of £60 please go to www.unitedmind.co.uk/shop/.
