Learn how to manage stress, increase your wellbeing and belly laugh again!

This experiential (and often life-transforming) workshop is ideal for personal development and anyone interested in running a Laughter Yoga group (certification upon completion of workshop). A combination of positive psychology, the Five Ways to Wellbeing and how to access unconditional laughter is taught, to give participants valuable tools for every day life.

Laughter is our body’s natural antidote to stress. When we laugh it stops the fight and flight response, lowering cortisol and adrenaline levels, increasing endorphins and serotonin. Laughing helps remove stress, tension and trauma.

Laughter “Yoga” is a deceptively simple yet very powerful form of exercise, combining laughter exercises with yogic breathing (quite different from traditional yoga with postures). Ultimately, Laughter “Yoga” is about the cultivation of joyfulness. It teaches you to make happiness a choice and not a consequence.

Laughter is a universal language that transcends all barriers; age, gender, language, hierarchy, physical abilities, race, religion, political beliefs. Anyone can laugh without relying on humour, jokes or comedy.

Laughter has profound effects on our mental and physical state of being.
the release of endorphins and serotonin;
decreases levels of stress hormones;
beats depression and anxiety;
boosts the immune system;
increases circulation;
floods the body with oxygen;
increases Killer T Cell production, which helps fight cancer;
is an aerobic exercise; and
improves communication and creativity.
