You’re Having a Laugh! Well, yes, we are…
To start our programme of evening meetings in 2017, Chiltern Chamber has invited Lotte Mikkelsen of United Mind, the laughter therapy, training and workshop company, to conduct a Laughter Yoga workshop.
This will start our year on an upbeat note, providing the perfect antidote to post-holiday blues and the dark days of January. There will be plenty of opportunity to network over refreshments before and after the workshop.
It’s easy to register: REGISTER HERE. There is a small charge of £10 for members and £15 for non-members, to cover the Chamber’s costs. Paying online is much preferred, but should you encounter any difficulty, just let us know and you can pay on the night.
About Laughter Yoga
Laughter Yoga is a non-bendy, non-intrusive, all-inclusive, fun ‘workout’ that deals with all stress! But in case you think this is a frivolous exercise, read on…
“Laughter connects staff and management across the workplace!”
UnitedMind was the first training organisation in the UK to focus solely on Laughter Yoga for training and development purposes, and boasts a long-standing track record of providing professional delivery of laughter-based programmes. Thousands of individuals and groups around the country have participated in such programmes.
UnitedMind’s laughter workshops and laughter training programmes combine laughter, breathing and business. Its programmes are designed to tackle any stress-, team-, conflict- or communication-oriented challenge in the workplace or privately. They can encourage confidence boosting, leadership team building, performance, public speaking, balance of work and life.
Lotte has also used laughter therapy to help MS sufferers. Addressing MS Life in September 2016, Lotte said “Laughter Yoga can be beneficial to people with MS because laughter – like exercise and other stimulating activities – releases increased levels of endorphins which are the body’s natural pain killer: “There are many stories of people with MS, who have started regularly using Laughter Yoga or similar techniques, who have experienced improvement in relaxation and sleep owing to lower levels of pain.”
If you think you know how to laugh, think again – and join us on Tuesday, 17th January.
