Clive & Jackie set off to India to upgrade their Laughter Yoga teaching skill set – with the great Doctor Madan Kataria and his wife and Laughter Yoga partner Madam Kataria, the founders of Laughter Yoga in 1995. Other teachers from all around the world had been looking forward to this course for some years, only 15 students were allowed to join. USA,AUSTRALIA,GERMANY yes there is in fact a Laughter Yoga University in Germany and the head of it was there with us. There was a Russian lawyer , a Dutch Computer expert, people from different parts of India, Ireland, Wales, Australia and of course Jackie and I representing 🏴.
They were told there was going to be a big presentation on the first class morning, never dreaming they were going to be the centre of it, for their work in presenting Laughter Yoga for charities and the corporate world. They have been made World Laughter Yoga International Ambassadors- which means if you can’t get the great Doctor Kataria to speak at your conference he is happy to endorse Clive and Jackie saying “they are two amazing passionate people…so pleased they are out there spreading the word of Laughter Yoga. Our strap line is “World Peace Through LAUGHTER YOGA”.
We really found out what the difference between laughter and joy is in our lives and how the four points of joy must be a must in our lives. The greatest thing is that they don’t cost anything! These four things must be steady so that we don’t suffer the terrible ups and downs! Buying a car that you always wanted will give you a quick fix of dopamine but as you know that soon wears off for some reason or other. Buying anything will only give you a quick fix! We are looking to purchase our next item because we need that dopamine high and yet with the four elements of joy constantly in your life you will love every moment!
We were very humbled when starting our second day because at the local park over a 100 people turn up there at 6am for a 45 minute Laughter Yoga class every morning….in fact every day including Sundays. This sets them up for an incredible day – they will be smarter, quicker, happier, healthier and more resilient, tenacious and more valuable to their boss and loved ones. You must see the whole video on YouTube…
