Laughter Yoga Training:
Become a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader

Become a Certified Laugher Yoga Leader with our in-person Laughter Yoga Training in Brisbane

This is an action-packed, content-rich program which will only come to fruition through doing. Spread the benefits of laughter yoga in your community!

Equip yourself with mood-enhancing, stress-busting laughter yoga skills in this 2-day Certified Laughter Yoga Leader (CLYL) training, an internationally recognised qualification set by Dr Madan Kataria and Laughter Yoga International. 

The Certified Laughter Yoga Leader course is almost certainly the most fun training that you’ll ever enrol in – with seriously positive impacts.

It’s an ideal addition to pull out of your ‘box of tricks’ to help colleagues, clients, students or friends destress, refocus and feel good.

Ask your employer about Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points — this course is all about wellbeing.

The Certified Laughter Yoga Leader course is the minimum needed to run a laughter club – free volunteer-based community social sessions in your neighbourhood. If you want a club near you, this is the course to do. It is strongly recommended  that you develop your confidence and laughter yoga and facilitation skills with friends and neighbours in a ‘laughter club’ setting: two days does not make you a pro!

This workshop may also be suitable if you want to use the basic laughter yoga skills in places that you work in such as aged care centres or schools, or if you are a yoga teacher in a yoga studio wanting to diversify.

There’s theory involved—the history, concept, philosophy and techniques—but the emphasis is on doing: laughter yoga training in a safe, supportive, empowering environment. 

Who does Laughter Yoga training? 

Some of the past participants include: psychologists, nurses, aged care workers, counsellors,  disability support workers,  teachers, sales people, personal trainers, yoga teachers, life coaches, team managers and HR personnel.

Then there are people who LOVE their community and want to giveback in a volunteer capacity through a laughter club.
