 Our last training for 2017 - starting 21st October- details below..............

Laughter Yoga Training has been carried out on a voluntary basis by Committee members of Laugh WA Inc. for over 15 years.  We conduct three sessions each year with an average of 12 participants each time.  So approximately 500 laughter facilitators have been trained.  Our workshops are a lot of fun and enjoyed by everyone.  Our aim is to get as many people enjoying the benefits of Laughter Yoga as possible!  These new facilitators have taken Laughter into their workplaces, schools, hospitals etc. with great benefits for health and improved productivity.  Some have established Laughter Clubs in their community.
 

We ask participants for their opinions and evaluations after each of the sessions and get some really good testimonials and
comments.  A few are listed below from our April 2017 workshop:
-

"Very Good Yay! Thank you it was fantastic! 10 out of 10'
"All very useful in my future laughter sharing journey"
"The booklet - very good.  The facilitator - Amazing! I love this workshop! You're spreading love
and joy to us and our family, friends and peers.  Beautiful."
"Love Love Love Laughter Yoga"
"Great resources, presentations and location"
"Keep going as it is.  More of the same.  Gap of two weeks between Level 1 and Level 2 was really helpful"

Level 1
  • During professional training, learn the history and discover the benefits of Laughter Yoga and its potential for health promotion and community building.
  • Learn the practical skills of Laughter Yoga and experience the benefits, as taught by the founder of Laughter Yoga, Dr Madan Kataria (Laughter Yoga International). 
  • Laughter Yoga is a group session of aerobic activity, which turns fake laughter into real laughter.  It consists of hand-clapping, Yogic breathing exercises and playful laughter exercises.  In a group or workplace, laughter becomes contagious and the participants gain the well-researched benefits.
  • Benefits of Laughter include stress reduction, aerobic exercise (which increases oxygen to the brain), and it provides endorphins, which improve mood.  It strengthens the immune system, burns calories and stabilises blood sugar.  Laughter lowers blood pressure and produces a feeling of relaxation and wellbeing.  Laughter enhances relationships, wellbeing and productivity in the workplace and contributes to our resilience – the ability to bounce back from daily stress.
