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.
You then get the certificate 🙂 Yey and have the support of a good teacher behind you. Most likely a support network, and an opportunity to keep in touch, regular cpd opportunities which of course you will get with our Laughter Yoga Wellness Training Academy.
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.
The best way to gain experience as a new laughter leader is in running that laughter club, running regular clubs or classes is going to be your biggest teacher. You have the basic guidelines and the certificate and now the real learning begins!
Laughter clubs and classes are the place to try new material, and be creative, it’s all about creativity 🙂 You will learn something from every group you work with, you will gain the experience you need to eventually start working professionally. I encourage those I have trained to work together, to collaborate. Most of my new leaders come along and work with me that invitation is an open one and can really help building up confidence and gaining experience with a real group of participants:-) Stick with it, it aint easy but it is so so very much worth it. You also have the opportunity to see how people gain so much from our work, by seeing their journey over a longer period of time. You will also have to work harder at your regular classes, refreshing the content, getting creative in doing so, its the most amazing part of your training.
It is not easy starting your laughter club, getting word out, finding people to come along. I totally encourage and recommend, finding someone to work with, two heads are certainly better than one 🙂
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 🙂
