I am offering this training in laughter leadership skills. It is suitable for everyone. We will be covering a lot of material. This course is ‘hands on’ so plenty of opportunities to practice your newly acquired skills like leading a laughter meditation, guided relaxation, and facilitating a laughter session. We will start the day with pranayama breathing exercises. We will also be encouraging our childlike playfulness to spring into life.

Often people do this training to improve the quality of their own lives or incorporate the skills learnt into what they are already doing. Some people go on to start a laughter club or 1 to 1 coaching. It’s up to you. I have lead many trainings especially in India where I go to every winter. I was trained by Dr Katari

 

a. This training is affiliated with Dr Kataria’s School of Laughter Yoga there is a lot of information about Laughter Yoga on Dr Kataria’s web page ..www.laughteryoga.org.

The fee includes 60 page ‘e manual’ sent before, extra handouts, ‘e’ book ‘Laugh for No Reason’ certificate, ongoing support afterwards through Facebook group, access to extra material eg research docs, laughter story, MP3guided relaxation, plus much more…

Where?

Goa is India’s most liberated state. By that I mean it I acceptable to drink alcohol, eat meat , fish and wear bikini on the beach. This is unheard of in most of India. This I find most relaxing and easy to feel ‘at home’ there.

I go away to India every winter and have primarily chosen Agonda in S.Goa to do this training in for several reasons. It is quiet, beautiful empty pristine beaches,[see photo] warm clean seas, friendly locals, incredible sunsets, great restaurants, optional interesting trips to spice farm, dolphin watching, up river ,other coastal beaches like Palolim, temples etc. There are regular yoga classes also happening there and lots of massage available for around £10. I describe Agonda to my friends as’ Paradise Found’

Logistics [INDIAN VISA REQUIRED ]

If you have not been to India before this is a great introduction.

Basically take a Goa flight and on arrival take a taxi to Agonda ..it takes approximately 1-2 hours and costs around £20 -£25

They will take you straight to your accomodation. We will arrange a meeting nearer the time..It is advisable to arrive at least a few days before to give you time to acclimatise and of course you can stay as long as you want…even go on to explore more of India

Visa application can be done online ..give yourselves a month beforehand to be on the safe side. vaccinations optional ,travel insurance recommended

Accommodation

I can book you into basic chalets on the beach [as you can see from the photoes]…they are clean and airy. Each has a dou

ble bed. Bedding and towels are provided. The attached ‘bathrooms’ are again basic ..toilet, luke warm shower ..Sorry no hot shower! [see photo]They will cost around £9 per night.

If you require something more up market I suggest you start off in 1 of chalets and look around yourself when you get here ..plenty of rooms available .. around £15- £20 per night

Wi Fi is available plus internet cafes ..so it is not so off the beaten track.

ATM machine also is in village ..open 24 hours

Food

There are numerous restaurants along the beach .[see photo].serving delicious fish, chicken, and vegetarian dishes ..prices around £5/7..

This break away is a great combination of continued professional/personal development as well as having a great holiday in the sun …

As we are only ‘working’ mornings there will be plenty of free time for you to explore and hang out on the beach. You are responsible for your own free time and how you organise it [sorry I am not giving guided tours ha ha]

So all you have to do is SAY YES and get that flight booked .Do not hesitate to contact me with further details. This course will definitely run as I am in Goa already so even with small numbers it will go ahead.
