Recent Feedback from August training

“My daughter and I took the ‘laughter yoga leader’ course with Odette in London, Islington. It was the best fun fill two day ever, leaving us on a joyful high! Who knew learning could be such a giggle! Now I am fully prepared to spread the joy of laughter to as many people as I can. Odette is a natural teacher, with a soothing voice, and contagious laugh! I would recommend her course, and I will be doing more with Odette in the near future! Ha Ha Ha!!!”

GONG BATH CAMDEN

Special Active New Moon – Laughter and Gong Bath Experience in Camden – Saturday 11th August 2018  6.30pm-8.00pm
Out with the Old, in with the New. Special extended letting go, release and renewal and restore New Moon Laughter and Gong Bath (laughter release and gong restore and renewal). 
Please come with an open mind to try something a little different. We will be accessing a combination of techniques to help us release using gentle shaking and giggles and laughter.  Laughter can provide a powerful cathartic release for some and can be a very powerful healing tool.
The shaking and laughter will help us to release what does not serve us, the laughter will aid us in opening and reconnecting to joy, connecting to one another and then being in a very open and receiving space for the gong and other therapeutic instruments to work their magic. This is an extended one and a half hour session which will include a full gong bath. 
Odette will be working with various therapeutic laughter techniques including laughter yoga.  We will experience gentle movement and shaking during this session along with extra intra-abdominal pressure from extended deep and hearty laughter.

Laughter Yoga London

Laughter Yoga Wellbeing Workshop in London

A One and a Half Hour Workshop for Fun, Games, Improvisation, Meditation and LAUGHTER :-) Ho Ho Ha Ha Ha 

Laugh, Play, socialise and make new friends. Join us for our optional after Laugh Social where the conversation and laughter will continue to flow.

An hour of rib tickling deep belly laughter including child like playfulness, gibberish, improvisation, complete nonsense, meditation and dancing!!! followed by an optional social at a local cafe.


In a nutshell

Laughter yoga is a practice involving prolonged voluntary laughter along with breathing techniques that originate from Yoga. We usually laugh for between 3-5 seconds, in a laughter yoga session we will laugh for between 10-15 minutes, of deep belly laughter. This is the type of laughter that gives us all the health benefits and the benefits will remain with us for a good 24 hours after the session! The body reacts in the same way whether the laughter is forced or natural, releasing the endorphin’s (happy hormones). It is these endorphin’s that kick in and fight stress, boost our immune system and make us feel good in so many ways. Laughter yoga is experienced in groups, with eye contact, yogic breathing and playfulness between participants. All that is required of the participants is a Willingness to Laugh!

Time 

Please arrive at 10.30am for registration. We finish the workshop just before 12:00pm.

Hargrave Hall ( UPPER HALL)

Nearest Tube Archway

Optional Social at a cafe/park afterwards

Stay as long or as short as you like. A chance to continue with conversation and laughter amongst new friends in a nearby cafe or pub.

Cost

Early Bird £6.00 ends 25th June

Refund Policy

We do not offer refunds however if you cannot make it, you are welcome to transfer your ticket to a friend who may go in your place. To do so, please email us the change of name details ideally 24 hours in advance for our register.

What to bring  

Wear something you are comfortable to move in and we will probably lie on the floor for a short ending mediation at some point! so if you like bring a Yoga/Camping Mat and cushion or you could roll your coat up and improvise! Bring some water or purchase from the bar. Laughter is thirsty work!

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ 

Laughter Yoga is not a substitute for medical consultation for physical, mental and psychological illnesses, but is a powerful natural complementary form of healing. It is like any other aerobic exercise and may not be suitable for everyone as it involves some physical strain and a rise in intra-abdominal pressure.

Some people may have pre- existing medical conditions and one should take reasonable precaution before doing laughter exercises or indeed any form of exercise.

It is contraindicated for people suffering from: Any kind of hernia, Heart disease with angina pain, Persistent cough with breathlessness, Uncontrolled high blood pressure, Incontinence of urine, Epilepsy, Advanced (bleeding) piles and haemorrhoids or any bleeding tendencies in any part of the body, Severe backache, Any acute symptoms of cough, cold and fever. People who have undergone major surgery should wait at least three months before doing Laughter Yoga.

If in doubt first consult a medical professional for guidance. Anyone undergoing physician-prescribed therapy that experiences improvements through laughter should seek the advice of their doctor before reducing dosage or stopping treatment.
