Learn to lead or learn for ourselves! Let's change our world with laughter!
Laughter Yoga School Manchester and Central UK
Laughter Training Programmes
Feelgood Communities have set up the Laughter Yoga School Manchester and Central UK to offer a range of training and workshops based on therapeutic laughter, play, joyful workplaces, gibberish and Laughter Yoga. We can also travel around the UK to deliver laughter based activities and training.
We run the following courses.
Laughter Yoga Leader Training
One-on-one training and training for groups: The training can be given anywhere and at any time! The two day course is held in Manchester throughout the year.
This is a two day certified course. It can be run for groups and is also taught as a one on one training. Laughter Yoga Leader Training specifically teaches the Laughter Yoga ideas of Dr Kataria and the exercises which are used in laughter clubs. It is often recommended as the first step on your ‘laughter journey’ because it provides a format and script for how you can run your laughter session. A certificate from Laughter Yoga International is awarded on successful completion of the course which enables you to obtain appropriate insurance.
Our next training is planned in Manchester over two Sundays a month apart: 1st September (day1) and 6th October (day2). We will also run the training over the summer as two consecutive days of training, and anywhere where there is a small group of people who wish to train.
Laughter Facilitation Skills
Manchester: held once or twice a year.
This course is for participants who want to develop ideas for facilitating laughter. It runs in Manchester and anywhere north of Watford.
The Laughter Facilitation Skills is an excellent way to learn about facilitating laughter with groups. It takes a broader look at laughter facilitation, and draws on creative ideas, movement and body awareness, and other ways for facilitating laughter. You will have an opportunity to try out your own ideas; in this way, participants also learn from each other. You receive a certificate of attendance. If you have been to some laughter clubs and have experience of facilitating groups (other than in laughter) then you might like to go straight to the Laughter Facilitation weekend.
The Advanced Laughter Course: Laughter and Spirituality
This is a two day training immersing ourselves in laughter, and can also be run as a one day course. These can also run at any time and anywhere!
This is the Exploring and Undertanding Laughter training - investigating the meaning, origin and use of laughter. It runs in Manchester and elsewhere. The Understanding and Exploring Laughter course is a self development and awareness weekend where we answer our own questions on the meanings, use and implications of laughter. It helps put laughter and our facilitation into perspective and context. You receive a certificate of attendance.
