Talking about Laughter Yoga and its benefits:

I wrote an article about Laughter Yoga in the monthly magazine aimed particularly for older people and you can find it on page 10 by following the link:

On 12 April 2018, the ITV Programme ‘Tonight’ showed a Documentary called ‘OAP Bootcamp’.  This highlighted the number of older people aged 65 plus that the NHS has to look after.  It also highlighted how a lot of older people are lonely, get little exercise and don’t have a healthy diet.  The programme took 5 volunteers and during the space of a week introduced them to different activities: Weights keep fit, Ballet keep fit, Healthy Eating, Knit and Natter and Laughter Yoga. I was delighted to be part of this documentary leading the 5 volunteers in a Laughter Yoga session.  The programme was available on the ITV Hub for 30 days after it was screened but a resume about the programme can be seen by following this link:

On 20 March 2018 I was invited to speak about Laughter Yoga on ‘World Happiness Day’ with BBC Radio Hereford & Worcester.  Here is the recording:
