Living a more laughterful life : )  

Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Trainings

This planet needs  more Laughter Leaders, who will not only become more joyful individuals but who will help this world become a better place through the start-up of community social laughter clubs. Every neighborhood, school, hospital and workplace can benefit!
You can look in any direction and see people struggling with anxiety, depression and stress.
This past October, I helped organize the 1st Laughter Yoga USA Retreat & Convention. One hundred Laughter Yoga professionals and laughter club members from the US, Canada, Portugal, Italy and Australia joined us for this special event, where they enjoyed hearing from an impressive line-up of speakers, educators and Laughter Yoga professionals.  It was a wonderful opportunity for learning, laughing and networking.
I was delighted to lead a  presentation on “Branding and customizing your Laughter Yoga Session.”
It was wonderful to be part of the organizing committee for this event and am also an volunteer with www.laughteryogausa.org, a newly created non-profit organization  serving to unite all Laughter Yoga professionals in the US and also promoting health, happiness and peace through laughter.
I  was part of a select group which led a stress-relieving laughter session for  prisoners in Zion, IL.
Shortly after that, I  laughed with teaching staff and employees at Swarthmore College and led a taped, on-line Laughter Yoga Session to promote joyful living with a greeting card company here in Pennsylvania.
So you see, there are endless ways to integrate Laughter Yoga in communities, at schools, with companies, at hospitals and with all kinds of other groups. I will share with you the fundamentals of how to develop a mindful laughter practice for yourself, how to start up a laughter club in your community and how to use it for business.

Is your relationship feeling a bit stale or la-di-da?

Have you been searching for a way to jump-start or re-energize the way you connect with your partner?  When is the last time you laughed for more than a few seconds with your mate?

Laughter in Schools

                                                                            Laughter 101 in Schools

MLK Day at Coatesville Senior High School

   Sadly, as soon as children enter grade school, they are told to suppress their natural laughter.

   This is the ideal time to reintroduce laughter exercises that will allow them to laugh through the difficult challenges that they will encounter on the way to      adulthood.

  These laughing techniques will empower them, build up their resilience and help them become more joyful individuals, which will enhance everything they do in    life.

I recently had the pleasure and wonderful challenge of laughing with over 300 6th Graders  at J.R. Fugett Middle School in West Chester, PA during their PSSA Exam week.

This experience reinforced the importance of offering  Laughter Yoga to a younger student body. Ideally, it would be beneficial to start the Laughter 101 classes at the 3rd Grade level and to offer a yearly program up until HS graduation. 

Laughter Yoga Wellness  is the perfect  way for these students to:

  • reduce stress, anxiety , problems with bullying and  peer pressure .
  • strengthen self confidence and self esteem
  • get energized
  • practice mindfulness
  • improve concentration and focus
  • improve performance
  • build empathy and foster  teamwork
  • become more joyful, expressive and enthusiastic

Here is my experience with a big group of Middle Schoolers:
