Certified Leader Trainings

Become a Laughter Leader
Not only will you expand your laughter horizons, you’ll have an ability you can share with others. You will learn the practical skills and theory of laughter yoga to be able to start a Laughter Club. This experiential and often life-transforming workshop is ideal for personal development and anyone interested in running a Laughter Yoga group. The training is fully accredited and you receive certification from the Dr Kataria School of Laughter Yoga upon completion of the workshop. The teachers present a combination of positive psychology and how to access unconditional laughter to give participants valuable tools for everyday life.
