So you want to be a laughter yoga leader
Finding a teacher that really resonates with you is my top advice.
Maybe seeing them working, going along to one of their classes, meeting them, chatting to them.
Possibly stating the obvious but going to a class ?
That is a pre-requisite of the training so pop along to a class in London and be sure that you are feeling the connection. We are in Finchley and Archway and soon to be adding another venue.
How big is the class?
When you train with us, you will be sure to have a a small enough group to really receive enough individual attention. Generally speaking never more than 6-8 in a class with one teacher. In the same respect you are learning to work with groups, we do that within a group. The class will not run with less than 4 participants. It is not a numbers game to us, it is our love, our passion and our life. We love our work, we live our work.
Why Laughter Yoga
It is an incredibly powerful holistic and complementary wellbeing tool that is so very needed in our often fast paced and stressful lives. As the saying goes “Laughter is the best Medicine” 🙂 and sometimes it really really can be. However laughter does not replace conventional medicine and we always recommend Laughter Yoga as a complementary method. I have heard many instances of people benefiting in amazing ways from practising laughter yoga. Laughter Yogis around the world are increasingly being called to work in therapeutic and medical environments, with cancer patients, dialysis patients, chronic pain clinics, psychiatric wards and other therapeutic settings.
Team Building and Connection
Ideal as an energy lift and boost during a long conference or training day
Why train as a Laughter Yoga Leader ?
Perfect addition to any holistic or therapeutic tool box.
Because you like to help people
To bring more laughter and joy in to your own life.
Start a Laughter Club for your local community.
Learning new skills
Learning to present the laughter yoga experience and enhancing you confidence to speak publicly about laughter yoga
Learning to work with and teach laughter yoga to groups
There are so many reasons and so many benefits in learning to become a laughter yoga leader. Imagine having such a powerful holistic tool to work with which can be life changing for recipients. You can really, seriously make such a difference to the lives of so many people.
Laughter Yoga Wellness training academy has their first Laughternoon CPD day in September, so very excited. A special day for in person support, fun and more for our existing laughter yoga leaders 🙂

Laughter Yoga was developed in India in 1995 by Dr Madan Kataria and is a unique concept which enables us to laugh for no reason without the need for humour, comedy or jokes. Through the use of laughter exercises, eye contact, childlike playfulness and yogic breathing, we convert pretend laughter into real, hearty belly laughter. In this way our bodies produce lots of endorphins instantly raising our mood and lowering our stress levels. Laughter has many other benefits including stimulating the immune system, making us feel lighter, more energised and happier.

An early start and a busy day for Odette aka Lady Ha Ha #ladyhaha on this International day of Happiness.
So the day started at around 7.30am with a laugh and a chat with Emma Bunton and Jamie Theakston on Heart London FM on the morning show.
Have a listen here
So what is it all about, International day of Happiness?
This year’s theme is Share Happiness – focusing on the importance of relationships, kindness and helping each other. Laughter Yoga is an incredible way to share the feel good factor. Just perfect 🙂
a quote by William James
We don’t laugh because we are happy
We are happy because we laugh
I will leave you with the thought of sharing something today that will help make someone smile at the very least and the easiest way to do just that is To Smile! because…
Smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu
When someone smiled at me today I started smiling too
I walked around the corner and someone saw me grin
When he smiled I realised I had passed it on to him
I thought about that smile and then realised its worth
A single smile like mine could travel round the earth
So if you feel a smile begin don’t leave it undetected
Lets start an epidemic and get the world infected ?
Happy International day of Happiness 🙂
