A new club named “The Laughing Toastmasters” was recently formed in Manama, Bahrain, and is registered with Toastmasters International. Initiated by Laughter Ambassador Mr. K M Thomas, it is the first Toastmasters Club established by a group of laughter facilitators and veteran toastmasters with a motto of “Speak to Lead and Laugh for Life”.
Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development with a membership of 292,000 people. They have very effectively incorporated Laughter Yoga which helps improve their speaking and leadership skills and make them resonant leaders and effective communicators. The focus is on personal and professional life wherein laughter is a steady provider of energy along with communication strategies to make the participants more humane and balanced, to work brilliantly and live beautifully.
Laughter Yoga brings physiological changes along with positive psychological implications, while the toastmasters help to overcome the unpredictable ebb and flow of environmental circumstances. Anyone committed to such clubs can uniquely develop various healthy life skills and overcome poor self-concept. Toastmaster and Laughter Yoga will “unlock our potential both in personal and professional life,” said Mr. Thomas.
The regular meeting of Laughing Toastmasters will be held on first Friday of every month from 9 am to 11 am at the Conference Hall in South Park, Gudabiya. Bahrain. Each session will have breathing, laughing exercises, prepared and impromptu speeches, joke sessions and a prayer for world peace.
