Eight years ago I [Leigh] was certified to lead laughter yoga - and I hadn't been to a laughter yoga class before the training! After starting a weekly laughter club, I went on to train with the founder, Dr. Madan Kataria, in 2010. This began my soul-thrilling journey of teaching Laughter Yoga Leader Certification Trainings and watching laughter light up lives.
After leading over one thousand widely diverse groups in laughter yoga, my life is different in almost every way. I've discovered the happy cascade of results gained from regular laughter - mainly - laughter doesn't discriminate about delivering its powerful benefits; it's not something you strive to earn or learn; sharing laughter yoga can significantly help anyone; it's severely contagious; and it attracts joyful folks to your life.
Please join our experienced teaching team for a memorable weekend full of deep relaxation and discovery. After two days of laughter and learning, you'll leave glowing with joy and confidence - and have everything you need to skillfully lead laughter yoga according to the original methods created by Dr. Madan Kataria.
You'll be a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader (CLYL), through Laughter Yoga International and be connected instantly to laughter yoga professionals worldwide. You then can lead laughter yoga sessions in gyms, yoga studios, clubs, senior centers, and more!
If they can laugh, you'll be able to lead!
New and included in this training! We'll also uncover the latest research by Lee Berk, recently featured in many major media sources, about how "Laughter is the New Meditation."
Check out our feedback from former trainings here. We hope you'll join us!
"This two day training has given me the gift of laughter in a new way. It is one of the most powerful healing modalities I have experienced."
"Your ability to connect with people and inspire is AWESOME. You have such an amazing balance of being focused and having fun. I appreciate your honesty with regard to Laughter Yoga and commitment to continue on this path!"
"The information was clear, resources abundant; the teaching team embodied the essence of the inner fountain of laughter..."
"Leigh has a wealth of experience with Laughter Yoga, working in a variety of settings, which she generously shared with us. Her manner is gentle and accepting, as she laughs and helps others laugh too. I appreciate the resource CD you prepared, as well as the binder of printed materials. Thank you so much!!!"
"I thought everything about the training was just outstanding. Your experience in having done this a number of times before really shines through!"
"The older gentleman in my laughter yoga training and I are laughing so deeply that we're literally holding each other up and soon have to sit down before we fall down. Arms around each other's shoulders, our breathing eventually slows and we bask in the afterglow of hilarity shared. As the training progresses, my heart opens to him as it seems to do with everyone I share laughter with. At lunch on the last day the discussion drifts into politics and religion. (I know, I know. What were we thinking?) But at the same time it dawns on us that we hold polar opposite views on just about everything political and religious, we realize - it doesn't matter. We have opened our hearts to each other, and we can never become enemies. It's a profound memory I recall every time my mind wants to turn someone into 'one of them.'"
