Tell me about the Laughter Training There are three different training courses. The 2-day courses can be delivered over consecutive days, or with a gap in-between. The Laughter Yoga Leader Training can also be delivered on-line, with a practical assessment. Laughter Yoga Leader Training This specifically teaches the Laughter Yoga ideas of Dr Kataria and the exercises which are used in laughter clubs. It is often recommended as the first step on your ‘laughter journey’ because it provides a format and script for how you can run your playful laughter session. A certificate from Laughter Yoga International is awarded on successful completion of the course which enables you to obtain appropriate insurance. Laughter Facilitation Skills This is an excellent way to learn about facilitating laughter with groups. It takes a broader look at laughter facilitation, and draws on creative ideas, movement and body awareness, and other ways for facilitating laughter. You will have an opportunity to try out your own ideas; in this way, participants also learn from each other. You receive a certificate of attendance. If you have been to some laughter clubs and have experience of facilitating groups (other than in laughter) then you might like to go straight to the Laughter Facilitation skills training. Understanding and Exploring Laughter This is a self development and awareness one or two day course where we answer our own questions on the meanings, use and implications of laughter. It helps put laughter and our facilitation into perspective and context. You receive a certificate of attendance. When do the courses run? If enough people are interested, we can run a course at any time at any place, or give in-house training. We can also teach the Laughter Yoga Leader Training as a one-on-one course.
