Here are some of the benefits of studying at the Iowa School of Laughter Yoga:


CONFIDENCE
When you train with Laughing Laura, you can be confident you are receiving the most accurate and direct transmission of the training, as Laura has been trained and certified by Dr. Madan Kataria himself, the founder of the worldwide laughter club movement. He's named her a "Laughter Ambassador" for her outstanding work in the field of Laughter Yoga and selected her as one of the first 3 Master Trainers in the world.  That's because Laughing Laura has a unique and creative style all her own. As a minister, she has had extensive teaching experience and brings a multitude of gifts. She also has professional training in dance and theatre, so she knows just how to bring out the playful element of Laughter Yoga. Most of all, she makes the learning fun—an adventure you'll never forget!


RENEWAL
Most laughter students consider their educational seminar to be a life-changing experience that helped them find greater wholeness and joy. Imagine how refreshing it will be to spend a weekend—far away from the stresses of your life—just laughing. It's like hitting the re-set button. You can return to your world as a laughing person, armed with the personal wellness tool of Laughter Yoga. Do this for yourself, you'll be glad you did.


CONNECTION
The seminars help laughter students build lasting friendships with Laughing Laura and fellow laughers. The synergy of the group helps people find support, inspiration and brainstorming opportunities. Upon graduation, you'll also be invited to join a free on-line forum specifically for the graduates of the Iowa School of Laughter Yoga where you can continue to connect and share ideas with others as well as Laughing Laura.


SUPERVISED PRACTICE
Even with laughter, practice makes perfect. During the seminars, you'll have ample opportunity to practice and polish your laughter leadership skills so you can head out to lead Laughter Yoga with boldness.


A COMPREHENSIVE MANUAL
For the Laughter Yoga Leader course, you will receive an original, comprehensive training manual. Laura has written this manual based upon her own extensive experience. It is filled with the latest research because she continues to expand and update it regularly. It contains everything you need to know to become an effective Laughter Yoga professional, complete with hilarious pictures and diagrams. In addition, it looks at the wider picture of how Laughter Yoga will nurture your soul, boost your joy and transform the world!


THE LITTLE BOOK OF BIG LAUGHS
Laughing Laura’s courses now include a complimentary copy of her book! This little resource is jam packed with the very best laughter and yogic breathing exercises. It is so handy that you can carry it with you at all times, so you’ll be ready whenever an opportunity to laugh presents itself.

PRACTICE CD

As a way to help you keep laughing, you'll receive Laughing Laura's one-of-a-kind CD, Be Laughter. This resource guides you through a half hour morning routine of yogic breathing and laughing as a personal wellness meditation, then an invigorating dance party to do at mid-day, and a unique yoga nidra experience for bedtime to help you cultivate an inner spirit of laughter.  These are invaluable practices that will enable you to continue growing in your new laughing life.
