Chronic pain a pain? Many people report that Laughter Yoga has helped them manage their pain and is the most fun complimentary medicine they've used.
This popular course is also perfect for anyone wanting to expand their repertoire of skills for their clients.
This Certified Laughter Yoga Leader training is affiliated with the Laughter Yoga University, Laughter Yoga International and Laughter Yoga founder, Dr Madan Kataria.
Laughter Yoga is based on the concept that we can laugh even when we don’t feel like it, and that the body can’t tell the difference between real and simulated laughter.
The benefits of Laughter Yoga include better physical, emotional and mental health and improved relationships with others. Laughter Yoga is sweeping the world as a fun way to socialise, keep healthy and create happier workplaces and communities. It is a fast, efficient, natural way to reduce stress.
No previous experience is needed, just a willing heart and an open mind.
This two day intensive will certify you as a Laughter Yoga Leader so you can lead sessions in companies, schools, fitness and yoga centres, community centres, hospitals and support groups. You will also be able to start a Laughter Club. This enables you to refine your skills as a Laughter Leader and to give back to your local community.
