My Profile

Hello! My name is Kate, and I am delighted to be a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader. I was first introduced to Laughter Yoga in 2015, and it appealed to me instantly as a gentle physical exercise and a tool for helping build a well of deep happiness and connection with others.

At my core, I am playful soul, and my inner child is still a theater kid. I am at my happiest and most fulfilled when I am genuinely connecting with people and helping them meet their needs, and when I am organizing and executing ukulele jams and small events, and teaching and leading adults and kids interesting things in informal settings - whatever can pull people out of their everyday lives for a while and help their brains untwist.

In addition to being a Laughter Yoga Leader, I am also a Certified Meditation Facilitator. I'm working on developing active, playful meditations - such as ukulele meditation - that will help others with especially loud and chaotic monkey minds like mine. I have also been certified as a Happiness Coach, and I'm currently completing a Specialist Certificate in Positive Psychology. While I'm not interested in doing life coaching per se, what I've learned about happiness, joy, and play is a solid underpinning for Laughter Yoga and other concrete practices.
