A reflection on teaching from the heart
What makes you ready to teach Laughter Yoga Leader Training? And what makes you a good teacher? Or even a great teacher?
In the past many Laughter Yoga Teachers in the UK have learned on a 5-day training with me in Hemel Hempstead or Durham and discovered that it may not be as simple as it sounds.
I am extremely grateful and feel truly blessed that this has even been possible. Some have even come directly from Laughter Yoga International and Dr. Madan Kataria.
There are now many Laughter Yoga Leader Training courses being offered in the UK and I am really excited about this because it means we have wider reach and share more laughter.
But what makes you a teacher? A teacher who can teach Laughter Yoga?
Well. Many things, figures, and one really important thing is of course the drive, the passion, the excitement to share laughter because it is so great for us all. However, it is a passion from a selfless giving, loving heart as opposed to one of selfglory and selfpromotion.
When we teach from a selfless heart we share a bit of ourselves.
This training is not just what is in a user manual - it is what is in our hearts and how we each have created change in our lives through the mindful practice of Laughter Yoga.
How can we be teachers who teach from the heart?
- Practicing Laughter Yoga every day is the first step to being in tune with the changes that extended, deep, hearty, unconditional laughter offers
- secondly running a laughter club is essential for teaching others to do the same and to share the experience of running a laughter club, the benefits of doing this are tremendous when you become a new Laughter Yoga Leader
- Thirdly, running community workshops and networking events, charity and other events
- The next one is about getting experience you can share with your students from professional workshops run in workplaces and paid for by the client.
