Become A Laughter Teacher!

The Laughter Wellness Level 1 training offers a solid foundation in the world of therapeutic laughter. You will experience and learn a refreshing and innovative practice that provides a whole new approach to stress management as well as physical, mental, emotional and especially social well-being through laughter. These are two days filled with laughter where you will not only learn more about how to facilitate Laughter Wellness interventions, but you’ll have lots of time and support to practice your own laughter skills in your unique way. All participants will receive a Certified Laughter Wellness Teacher, Level 1 diploma.

What you get

  • 2 days of training. (12-14 contact hours depending on the training locations.)
