The following are a short selection of the many testimonials we receive from people attending trainings with Sebastien Gendry, creator of Laughter Wellness.

Your integrity and commitment to excellence are inspiring. You have fully codified and substantiated Laughter Yoga and taken it to a whole new level with Laughter Wellness. The strategy you’ve developed engenders confidence and the scope of your teaching material offers me endless variation when I add my own creativity. Plus you are just incredibly FUN to spend time with!

I know these words have been used before, but I swear they went through my head as well. By the end of the training, I not only had new core muscles, I didn’t want to leave. HOW MUCH FUN!!! I felt like I had changed. I definitively was NOT the same person I had arrived as. Are you ready to change from the inside out? If so, sign up for the next training with Sebastien! You’ll never be the same!!!

I loved how Sebastien shows us how to break down barriers, judgements, and get out of our head through playful exercises and really connect with each other through our hearts. It reinforces the power of play and laughter for me. Thank You!

“Thank you Mr Gendry! I walked into your laughter session very depressed. It was Easter week-end and I was very lonely. What you had me do did not just lift stress from my body, it lifted stress from my soul.”Reggie Wells, Make-Up Artist Of Oprah Winfrey

Thanks for a great training this past weekend. I enjoyed it a great deal and learned a lot.  You have a great presence.  In ministry we call it ‘A ministry of presence.’ I was actually quite surprised how spiritual the training was as well. You are a great public servant, truly inspirational. I hope our paths cross again.”  Rev. Scott Lovaas, LCSW PhD

For about 38 years, I have been attending educational, fitness, and yoga workshops. Yours is by far the best workshop I have been to in all these years. I found myself so focused on all you were teaching. I never looked at the clock, and I found myself not wanting the workshop to end. That is saying a lot for someone who has been in education for as long as I have and attended the thousands of workshops that are required. Thank you for your teachings, your enthusiasm, the loving and fun way you teach. You are a blessing to all who have the opportunity to learn from you.” Ruth Luna

“I am filled with gratitude for my weekend of Laughter Leader training with you. What a Joy it is to meet another laughing heart and open mind. I honor your generous, joyous service to humanity and your ability to meet each person right where they are, and give each one an opportunity to meet themselves through the practice of laughter. You are a skilled and inspiring teacher with so much to give, and you give it freely. Thank You!” Jean Roorda, Life Coach, Singer

“You wiped away the doubts I had about my ability to conduct classes. I thank you very much  for your fun, entertaining and informative seminar.” Elsie Blum, 89

I often see your face and hear your positive affirmations you shared with us during our workshop. My energy level and happiness have increased tons since attending your workshop. Thank you for what you do!!!” Karla Bruning, MD

“Thank you sooooooooooooo much for the AWESOME WEEKEND OF LAUGHTER! The training was wonderful. Today I taught 2 yoga classes, one of which is a rather advanced hatha yoga, where students do headstands, handstands, cartwheels, you name it, they do it. Half way through the class we did a squat which very quickly turned into a frog, complete with the hopping around, the frog sound and the puffiness of a frog hopping away. Not a plan, spontaneous happening, the next few poses were full of giggles and laughter, everyone left the class beaming. I can hardly wait for tomorrow to incorporate it into the chair yoga class. Thank you again, you are an awesome teacher/leader!” Emily Slonina, Yoga, Meditation, Trager, Reiki & EFT practitioner

I wanted to say thank you for the wonderful training we had in NYC. I am working as a camp counseler over the summer and I use what I learned that weekend on the children daily! It’s great, I also use it with my clowning gigs too. Thank you again for everything I learned!” Debbie Roberge aka Sparkles the clown!

“Thanks for an amazing weekend. You are an amazing soul and I feel privileged to be your student.” Vicki Howie, Yoga Teacher

I enjoyed the workshop tremendously. When I was driving to work Monday, my heart was still full of love for all who were in the class, the heart-laugh rays still going very strong. Laughter without humor is great.” Adrie Min, Physiotherapist.

“This past weekend marks one of those memorable times that remain captured in my heart. I will look forward for our paths to cross somewhere down the line. I know it will happen. The workshop couldn’t have been better. What a way to spend a weekend!” Pauline Morrison, Mom, Grandmon, wife to one of modern history’s greatest toy inventor.

“That you soooooo much for the weekend. I started working this into my yoga straight away. It has be really fun. It has been very beneficial at the Colorado Mental Health, Community Hospital and my gentle classes with the elderly. Thanks heaps and hope to work with you again in the near future.” Suzi Potratz, Yoga Teacher

“Your workshop was a great investment for me.”

“You moved my heart strings and touched me deeply”

“Thanks again for being such an incredible instructor and helping us all to get so silly! I had no idea how transformational it would be to receive PERMISSION to laugh (especially in a school) as I’d always considered myself pretty optimistic and open to humor to begin with. Now, I make it a point to give a huge smile away to everyone I meet or make eye contact with, and it’s amazing how that little gesture can change your entire world.”

“I loved your teaching methods to tell, to show and then have us practice. What a powerfully, effective method to use.”

“Thank you so much for an experience that far exceeded my expectations. I came in expecting to add an enjoyable something new to my “bag of tricks” to help others, and found myself transforming my own attitude and reactions toward stress and problems that have beset me for several years. You have lightened my heart and opened my eyes and mind…..thank you laughs forever!”

“My face still hurts from laughing so hard and “feeling the Love”. This is such a perfect fit for you… Your passion and sincerity comes through so loud and clear. Your teaching style is so gentle and patient and you put things in terms that are easy to understand. I loved how you could just be sitting so still and you would make a very subtle facial expression with a slight smile and it would crack everyone up. And instead of stopping there, you’d continue to build on it, never breaking the mood. Very talented. ”

“Thank you so much for your heartfelt facilitation during the certification program and your authentic nature. I also really appreciated the spiritual aspects that you brought into the process.”

“Thank you for doing the workshop this past weekend…it was wonderful and you are a fantastic teacher! I led my first laughter group this week and it was AMAZING!!!! OH my goodness! 18 actually showed up and we had a ball! I went through a laughter meditation at the end that took many to tears of joy, otherwise it was all laughter. One woman showed up in pain, her pain was gone by mid class. Another who has fibermialgia had no pain and had forgotten to take her meds. Two who almost did not come but decided they would, were the hardest laughers and could not stop at the end It was moving! I am so thankful for the experience and more grateful even that I just did it!”

“Yippee!! Thank you for all you add to this glorious concept! The training was inspiring and educational – I only wish I wrote more down.”

“Thank you for the extraordinary training. It was a true celebration of the spirit of laughter. You are an amazing, creative and gifted teacher. Your commitment, efforts, style of delivery and organizational skills are inspiring. And your personal charm and presence are a beautiful addition. VERY GOOD – VERY GOOD – YEAAAA !!!!!! I am super grateful for the whole experience… really changed my life.”

“Yours was one of the most uplifting and informative professional seminars I have attended. Your holistic approach to wellness through laughter is exciting. I am confident that the skills I learned in this session will open many new doors and benefit me for the rest of my life. Thanks again!”

“Underlying all my many other experiences was an almost surreal awareness that I was among kindred spirits, a feeling that grew in depth during the weekend … It was powerful. I felt as though I’d come home after a long absence…

“It was just great. I feel really inspired to start a laughter club and spread joy and laughter. Heartfelt thanks for all you do”

“It was excellent! Invigorating, informative, practical, sequential, logical, clear. Thanks for giving!”

“You are a wonderful and efficient leader and trainer. I am so lucky that I decided to take the training. I gained a lot out of it. Thank you again!”

“It was really special and beautiful to share the weekend with you. I’m still flying high….and spreading the joy!”
