Laughter Yoga Leader Training this July!

Group Organizer
Oakland, CA

Hello Laughter Lovers

Maybe someone you know would like this great opportunity to get a unique Laughter Yoga Leader Training! (See full description below.)

I used to do the Laughter Yoga Leader Training on one weekend in two 8 hour days, including lunch and breaks. What I discovered was missing in those trainings was ongoing practice leading Laughter Yoga. So I came up the idea of doing a mix of class time and a mentoring process. Participants have a chance to lead sections of the Oakland Lifefire Laughter club as an Intern with support and feedback from me!

In this training we will get together for either one full day, or two half day sessions. The rest of the training will include practice teaching the Oakland Lifefire Laughter Club at least 2 times so participants get to experience the nuts and bolts of leading a club, working with a larger group and mentoring from me. We will meet before the laughter club to review and have a debrief after the club. I can schedule this at the participants convenience, but it needs to be completed within 2 - 3 months after the training.

Also required will be at least one field trip to another laughter club (checking in about the experience with Annie afterwards), so trainees get to see a different style of leading.

The workshop is limited to 6 people (unless someone can offer a larger workshop space for us to use). It’s designed for people who live in the Oakland/Berkeley/Bay Area environs.

I’m offering some dates in July. This part of the training will be EITHER 2 half days OR one whole day.

Here are possible dates. Please pick your top first & second choices:

All day Sunday July 10

Afternoons of Saturday July 16 AND Sunday July 17

All day Saturday July 16

All day Sunday July 17


Please feel free to pass this on to anyone who might be interested. For more details including costs, keep on scrolling.

Email through Meetup or call me with questions or concerns. My numbers are 510-655-1433 and cell 510-282-1279.

Looking forward to lots of laughter and fun with you!

Warmly & in shared laughter,
