Nowadays I am offering two types of training, online training [ten live zoom hours plus 2hours of private practice in the evening] Please contact me for more details – Click here

plus a certified two-day training [in person]. Both of which  provide you with the skills needed to facilitate a group who wants to do some laughter . Often people who do it integrate into the work they are already doing with groups or individuals. It is endorsed by Laughter Yoga international and is certified .
