Cairns Laughter Club Leader Training
Sat., 10/06/2017, 9:00 am – Sun., 11/06/2017, 4:00 pm AEST
Cairns has said 'we want a laughter club' (https://www.facebook.com/laughtercairns/) Now the training is coming to your tropical city to make it happen!
Over two days, running from 9am-4pm both days, we'll cover the concept and philosophy of laughter yoga -- a fun wellbeing regimen sweeping the world with scientific evidence underlining its goodness -- as well as oodles of practical exercises so that you have the understanding, insight and confidence to deliver laughter yoga sessions yourself.
Importantly you'll be 'laughing without humour' gaining confidence to encourage others to do so in order for you to be confident running a laughter club session.
At day's end on the Sunday, be prepared for a pop-up public laughter session!
Laughter clubs -- there are tens of thousands worldwide but fewer than a handful in Queensland, all in the south-east -- are accessible, social, community based, run by trained volunteers. Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a group of committed volunteers to create a roster for a laughter club so that everyone benefits and enjoys the joy of laughter wellbeing.
Emphasis for this training will be on a developing a strong base for Laughter Club Cairns -- however the skills are transferrable to yoga studios, in workplaces, schools and aged care centres. And you personally will benefit from this joyous activity.
While laughter yoga does not involve asanas and much floor work, do bring a yoga mat (or beach towel) for some meditative floor work. A fold-up chair is also suitable (this is all about accessibility and adaptability!)
