After running a couple of sessions for the WI groups in Halesowen last year, I have set up a new monthly session at Halesowen College. The first session will take place on Wednesday, 31 January 2018 from 7.00 pm at Halesowen College, Whittingham Road, Halesowen, B63 3NA. It will be held in the Performing Arts building, Block 13 and will be in rooms 13101 and 13102:
Wow – I can’t believe this event is nearly here and I’m so excited about it!!!
It will take place at Carrs Lane Conference Centre, Carrs Lane, Birmingham, B4 7SX on Saturday, 28 October 2017.
As well as attracting people from the Laughter Community, Voluntary Organisations, Community Groups, Health and education professionals, it is open to anyone wanting to know more about the health and wellbeing benefits of Laughter Yoga and to bring more joy and laughter into their daily lives.

During April and May 2016 I have been working with Niamh Conway-Carroll and her student colleague Hannah Burgess from Staffordshire University. Niamh is a Journalism student and chose to do her thesis on the benefits of Laughter Yoga.
Niamh and Hannah attended a ‘Merrie Maggie’ Laughter Club in Wordsley and also ‘Merrie Maggie’ Laughter Club in Malvern in order to gain sufficient video footage and interviews with participants, and also Graham Comfort with whom Niamh was carrying out a case study, in order to create the video. Also assisting in the delivery of the Malvern session was Avril Phillips who had recently qualified as a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader with me a few weeks before.
Click on the video below to see the video, which has been very professionally put together by Niamh and I hope conveys what we do during a Laughter Yoga sessions and also how beneficial (and how much fun) participating in Laughter Yoga is:
