Laughter Yoga Teacher Training

The first objective is to get more laughter into your own life because you cannot teach anything that you don’t have. There is an old Chinese proverb: ‘You start teaching other people what you don’t have.’ Therefore, the best way to bring more laughter into your life is to become a Laughter Yoga teacher.

Secondly, as a teacher you must acquire knowledge and skills to teach, train and coach others as laughter leaders. Finally, in order to laugh without any reason everyday you must learn how to laugh all by yourself by doing five breathing and five laughter exercises which will enable you to maintain your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
