UnitedMind’s unique Laughter Therapist Training programme gives you the background as well as in-depth experience of laughter therapy, including a brief introduction to Laughter Yoga, however, this is NOT Laughter Yoga Training.

The Laughter Therapist Training takes you on a journey through different ways of presentation, various ways of using laughter in life and in workshops, the meaning of laughter that we add, and it teaches you to structure a professional presentation.

The course is a philosophical as well as practical course where we will get in touch with the inner-most laughter, and discover what REALLY tickles the giggles.
