There is a distinct difference between Laughter Yoga, Laughaerobics, and Laughter Therapy.
The physical act of laughing which you explore with us in Laughter Yoga and Laughaerobics is based on your body’s response to muscle movement and physical interaction.
Laughter Therapy takes you on a journey to find your source of laughter within. During this you may experience stimulated laughter and other emotional releases, however, the true value of Laughter Therapy lies within the fact that you give yourself permission to experience all things that are bottled up sometimes without knowing the real reason for them to be stored, and then release them.
The Laughter Company (TLC) Partners have backgrounds in hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, holistic therapies, counselling, NLP and life coaching, and as such we are perfectly capable of taking our clients through the cathartic experience of Laughter Therapy. We are there to keep you safe on your exploration.

Our work is designed for each individual client and delivered with the group or person in mind.
These are very personal workshops and all participants are encouraged (but not forced) to take part in all exercises. Participants often feel a strong sense of connection and team spirit at the end of each workshop. It provides renewed energy and focus, and “tools” that they can actively take away and use in their lives, both at work and at home.
There is no doubt that the health benefits of laughter are extensive. Many diseases today are caused by stress and anxiety arising from conflict in the workplace, and by laughing we release natural chemicals into our body, which lower our stress levels and put us in a much more positive frame of mind, able to cope with work and life outside work. Laughter can be used as a tool to get through tough times, whether these are caused by mental challenges, physical issues, or “circumstances” in general.
After a Laughter Workshop participants feel energised, bonded with your group, and ready for any challenge!
