A fun weekend for all! Get more laughter into your daily life, improve your health, discover new skills and enjoyment. Not only will you expand your laughter horizons, you’ll gain an ability you can share with others.
This course is for everyone looking for new ways to release stress, bring more fun into their workplace, and more joy and good health into their lives. Laughter does all this and Laughter Yoga provides an easy way for people to get the goodness of laughter.
Developed by GP Dr Madan Kataria in 1995, it brings together three ideas:
- we benefit from laughter whether it is real or simulated
- we can laugh without jokes, humour or comedy
- Laughter Yoga gives us long term health benefits when practised regularly
Why Become a Laughter Leader?
Professional Development – Laughter is an effective state changer: bringing it into organisations can help, especially in areas such as stress management, team-building, and creativity.
Personal Development – Learning to laugh more easily brings physical, emotional, mental and spiritual benefits, for yourself and in your workplace, personal and social relationships.
Laughter Leading – When you lead a regular group in laughter the energy they generate comes back to you many times over. In addition, you develop valuable skills in organisation and delegation, negotiation and marketing.
Fun Weekend – Two days of laughter, and learning about laughter, is an enjoyable and life-affirming experience. It leaves you energised and enthused. Club members find this course deepens their enjoyment and understanding of Laughter Yoga.
During the training you will:
- Gain a good understanding of Laughter Yoga
- Acquire the skills and confidence to lead or support Laughter sessions
- Learn about leading sessions for school children, seniors and in the corporate world
- Become qualified to start and run a Laughter Yoga club
- Practise the fundamental exercises of Laughter Yoga
The training includes the official Laughter Yoga Training Manual and Certificate
