A fun weekend for everyone! Get more laughter into your daily life, improve your health. Expand your laughter horizons, and be able to share your laughter 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 is 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 improves our health especially when practised regularly

Why become a laughter leader?
Professional Development:
Laughter is an effective state changer. In any organisation it is valuable for stress management, team-building, and promoting creativity.

Personal Development:
Learning to laugh more easily can bring physical, emotional, mental and even spiritual benefits, for yourself and in your workplace, personal and social relationships.

Laughter Leading:
Leading laughter sessions is hugely satisfying; the energy generated comes back to you many times over. It develops organisational skills and greater confidence in speaking up for yourself.

Fun Weekend:
Two days of laughter, and learning about laughter, is an enjoyable and life-affirming experience. It leaves you energised and deepens your enjoyment and understanding of Laughter Yoga.

- Gain a good understanding of Laughter Yoga
