It helps to nurture a positive mental attitude and, when done regularly, boosts the immune system. Maybe you will feel as I did, that it will make you want to know more about this activity for your own personal development or you may want to share the experience and become a Laughter Yoga Leader yourself. If you are interested in having a 30-minute, 1-hour or 90-minute session for your organization or group, I can offer sessions to meet your requirements.  I am able to offer negotiable rates for voluntary organisations and community groups. In addition, I am able to offer a Laughter Yoga – Basic Skills workshop that can be delivered either in 1-day or by hourly sessions for 8-weeks. Please get in touch if there’s anything you would like to know more about.
