Laughter Yoga Leader Training
* TLC and Laughter Immersion Retreat *
Yes, many call this Laughter Yoga Leader Training "a life-changing experience."
A weekend away requiring only a small $$ investment.
A time of exploring play and touching the inner core of your creativity, caring and joy.
A skill-building experience providing you a new professional designation - Certified Laughter Yoga Leader. This training is affiliated with the Laughter Yoga International organization, whose vision is to expand the global human family's experiences of health, happiness, peace and positive social connection.
The world needs "Happy"!
Join me, Elaine Nieberding to immerse yourself in TLC (timely laughter caring) that in future days, you can extend to your family, community, co-workers, clients.
As you make "the choice for laughing" more central in your daily living, you become a positive model that may, directly and indirectly, inspire others to explore laughter self-care for enhanced wellness and uplifting social connection.
Sustained laughing: a revitalizing body-mind experience.
The motion of sustained laughter causes body physiological shifts, allowing feelings of relaxation, vitality, comfort and happiness to emerge and expand.
It feels so good to ease into gentle laughter and then let it become full, robust belly laughter. Hearty laughing, like hearty crying, empties the lungs of stale air.
And with the conscious deep breathing woven into laughter yoga, our bodies and brains love the heightened oxygenation happening.
It feels so good to bring laughter, unconditionally, to just about anything -- to the foibles of being human in paradigm-shifting times on planet earth.
Imagine loving and accepting yourself more fully, right as you are, during a two-day laughter self-care experience.
