Laughing for health 2016.

Carol is available to run laughter sessions cost is generally £50 per session plus travel
This is negotiable for charities and not for profit organisations

These sessions are a useful fun way to de-stress. Laughing does not have to be taught so there are no new techniques to learn. The sessions are suitable for all ages from 10 upwards. Although some of the games / exercises can be quite physical people only join in what feels right for them.

These sessions are also suitable for disabled / less able individuals. Just being in a room of people laughing, being friendly and positive can have a beneficial impact on us.



Carol Trained as a Laughter Leader in January 2009 with The Dr. Kataria School of Laughter. This is also called Laughter Yoga http://www.laughteryoga.org

Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea simple and profound. An exercise routine, it is fast sweeping the world and is a complete wellbeing workout. It is the brainchild of Dr. Madan Kataria, an Indian physician from Mumbai who started the first laughter club in a park on 13th March 1995, with just 5 people. Today, it has become a worldwide phenomenon with more than 6000 social laughter clubs in 60 countries.

Laughter Yoga combines unconditional laughter with deep breathing. Anyone can laugh for no reason, without relying on humour, jokes or comedy.

Laughter is simulated as a body exercise in a group but with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter.

The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter.

One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits. For more information visit http://www.unitedmind.co.uk/laughterand.html
