Join Our Laughter Leadership Program

Are you a certified laughter yoga leader who lacks the confidence to lead your first session? Maybe you’re out of practice? Maybe you need a little help?

Whatever your reason, if you’re a certified laughter yoga leader and you received your accreditation from Laughter Yoga University, we can help. 

We know that standing up in front of a room filled of strangers can be intimidating—especially if you’ve never taught before. It’s the reason we created our Laughter Leadership Program. 

Whether you decide to sign-up for our basic 2 week plan or one of our longer 4-8 week programs, you’ll be given an opportunity to hone your leadership skills under the supervision one of our expert mentors. Each mentor is a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader who works in conjunction with Laughter Yoga Richmond. They’ve received placement in a weekly RVA Laugh Club location and have led 50 or more sessions. With their guidance you’ll learn to improve your leadership skills.

Before beginning our program, we’ll sit down with you to discuss your goals. When appropriate, we’ll pair you with a mentor who has experience in a specialized area. For instance, if you want to work with seniors, athletes, veterans, or children we’ll pair you with a mentor who has experience in your area of interest.

One of the greatest aspects of this program is the opportunity you’ll have to develop your teaching style. You’ll start with taking over a portion of a weekly session and completing assignments as you explore what works best for you. One thing is certain, the more you put into your experience, the more you’ll get out of it. Each week, you’ll work closely with your mentor to sharpen the skills you learned in your certification course. Then, after each session, your mentor will share 30 minutes of feedback with you.

As you gain more confidence and your presentation skills improve, you’ll eventually assume all leadership responsibilities until you’re leading your own laughter club.
