Word of mouth is the best advertising. So click on this link to see what a participant had to say about a teambuilding Laughter session Julie ran for their company. https://and.digital/blog/innovative-ideas-to-boost-your-team/.

Previous years and up to the present day there has been an increasing interest in using Laughter Yoga at Wellbeing Events for Staff. JP Morgan, South West Trains, Butlins – Bourne Leisure, Nestle, Ikano Bank, BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, BrainLabs and Mullen Lowe of London have all enjoyed Lightening up with Laughter.

See quotes opposite below. Both Julie and Lotte have many years experience of running corporate teambuilding events and often combines stress management with Laughter Yoga for maximum benefits to participants.

The end result is that both employers and employees are happy. People who are happy at work stay, saving the company money on advertising and training. Happy people are more productive people – making more money for the company.

People who can laugh together can work together.

QUOTES FROM AN DIGITAL, LONDON

Read the blog of Vera at AN Digital following her laughter yoga experience https://and.digital/blog/innovative-ideas-to-boost-your-team/

Plus Here are some more quotes from the rest of the team

“Laughter Yoga was a hilarious and amazing team bonding experience for our team where we got to know each other in a more relaxed, carefree environment”

“Not only was I surprised at how fun this was, but how energising it was for the rest of the day! I felt like I had just done a long run”

“We did this as part of our 4-week bootcamp/induction and it was such a fantastic ice breaker and a fond memory of the whole experience – thanks Julie!”

“10/10 would do this again – such a refreshing, innovative way to build a team and let off some steam during the work day!”

QUOTE FROM INTERNATIONAL BANK EMPLOYEE, LONDON

“We formed a big circle in a large empty room, a mix of 30 strangers and office acquaintances, unsure of what was to come next. It was admittedly awkward when we were told to laugh, the group’s typical Brtish reserve on full display. But Julie coaxed us out of our comfort zones, and we relaxed into the silliness of the moment. Our forced chuckles gave way to wholehearted belly laughs, a spirit of joy and play overtaking the offices. We all have moments of tears and heartache – and laughter can be a potent remedy. So during the U.K.’s recent “Blue Monday,” employees at our office gathered to embrace joy in the face of sadness, for a workshop on the restorative power of a good laugh. And it worked. We literally could not stop laughing, this diverse group of co-workers, instantly connected through one of the most basic of human experiences. Days later, I still chuckle at the memory – and that has to be a good thing, for mind as well as body. With all of the difficult, sometimes tragic, things that life throws our way, there is always the grace of a smile, and the uplifting sound of a laugh, to get us by.”

QUOTE FROM IKANO BANK, NOTTINGHAM

“Thank you Julie for introducing us to Laughter Yoga at Ikano for our Wellbeing Week. The laughter taster sessions were a great success, and definitely had the desired effect on the participants – infectious laughter and feeling energised for the rest of the day.

“The Relax and Breathe sessions were also excellent – allowing many of our co-workers to take time out of their working day to focus purely on themselves. Thank you!” Sarah Morley, HR Dept

QUOTE FROM BNP PARIBAS LEASING SOLUTIONS

“I was debating whether to attend the laughter Class as I had been previously unwell and it was my first day back to work. Anyhow, I did attend the Laughter Class and I came away feeling re energised, invigorated,feeling better and happy, happy, happy! A Big Thank You and keep smiling!” Jules, BNP Wellbeing Team

“Before attending the session I wasn’t too sure what to expect but it was great! I laughed so hard I felt like I’d had a proper workout by the end of the session and it brightened up my day! Many thanks.” Charmaine, HR Project Manager BNP

QUOTE FROM PUBLICIS AD AGENCY

“Thank very much for coming along yesterday morning to laugh with the team. You brought a great energy to the session, it was a different experience indeed and definitely reminded me to try to bring more light and laughter into each day – it does make you feel better to smile and have that ‘happy place’ of escapism.” Stephanie, Senior Account Manager for session with Nestle

QUOTE FROM S.W TRAINS WELLBEING CONFERENCE

QUOTE FROM JAM EVENT MANAGEMENT FOR THEIR BEAUTY BLOGGERS QUOTE

“Julie’s session was a perfect way to breakdown barriers and stress levels. A group of stressed and tired people arrived for the session but group of happy and visibly relaxed people left”

There were seven different languages spoken at the session and it just goes to show that Laughter is a Universal language which we all understand.

FROM SOLICITORS IN PETERSFIELD

“We all really enjoyed the Laughter Yoga/Stressless Living session and there was lots of smiling throughout Thursday and Friday! I had very positive feedback and generally even the most timid found your approach sympathetic and unthreatening. I think we were all amazed that we were able to laugh, to order, for the last 5 minutes. Hopefully we will be back for a team building session in the future. Senior Partner”

QUOTE FROM GREAT ORMOND STREET HOSPITAL

“Please pass on my thanks to Julie for theStressless Living/ Laughter yoga session. I felt great afterwards and had the best sleep I’ve had for a very long time.” Senior Physiotherapist

QUOTE FROM NOMINET, OXFORD

“Julie was invited to our Well Being event to energise and recharge our people. She encouraged us through the use of games and laughter activities to find our sense of fun and in doing so our laughter muscles! In the end, the laughter came naturally to the group. After our session we were left feeling rejuvenated, positive and ready for the day ahead.”

“Sometimes as adults we all forget why we need to laugh, and just how good it feels when we do, Julie offers you a much needed reminder.” Amanda Howe, Human Resources Consultant
