What we're about

Ellie K. has been running laughter yoga sessions since March 2013. She is certified as laughter yoga leader by Dr. Medan Kataria, the founder of Laughter Yoga. She has 7 years of experience running games and activities for various youth groups.

It doesn't matter who you are, you are welcome. Laughter is a universal language, so we understand each other,The act of laughing is something humans do that is understandable by everyone. It doesn't matter what race, countery, religion, ethnicity, or gender you are; we all recognize laughing as having a good time and enjoying life. Laughter is often contagious just like smiling. I know that from experience that I can start laughing just by watching other people laugh; without actually knowing what they're laughing at. Laughing is one of the most enjoyable things in life.

This group is for everyone , we use Laughter Yoga which is a unique technique devised by Dr Madan Kataria, a doctor from India, whereby you can learn to “Laugh for no Reason”You don’t even need a sense of humour, no funny jokes or comedy programmes – just a willingness to laugh – and in the current climate everyone needs to laugh. A happy soul Attracts Positive Life experience. Happiness is a light that shines so bright and leaves no room for doubt and darkness.

A good time to laugh is any time you can. ~Linda Ellerbee.

Enjoy the moment live in, and appreciate the present The past is history,tomorrow’s a mystery,and today’s a gift–that’s why they call it “the present”. Live in the moment and laugh unconditionally.

As well as public events I can offer laughter play-shops in companies, for hen and stag parties, charities or community groups.

I also organise dance walks; silent discos in public places, free hugs and cuddle workshops.
