Laughter Yoga has grown and diversified over the twelve years that Ive been involved. I often receive emails from people wanting to know what opportunities are available, and what will best suit different peoples needs. So whether you are a new person who is wondering what is the first step, or you are currently trained and looking for the next step, the following information may be helpful.
