The Island Coaches Collective

The Island Coaches Collective will continue the Sunday Series with a session that will lift your mood, creates connection, improves your immune system and is fun at the same time:

“Laughing for no reason” with Mel Burdett
Sunday, 12th of June 2022
1.00 – 3:30 pm
In the Waiheke library and online via zoom

Does Laughing for no reason sound awkward to you? You have come to the right place!

Wellbeing Coach Mel Burdett is an International Laughter Yoga Leader, trained by Dr. Madan Kataria, the founder of Laughter Yoga. In this free ICC session, Mel will share with you how laughter will have a sustainable positive impact on your physical and mental health and how you can reap in the benefits, even if you do not feel like laughing.

There won’t be any jokes to tell or comedy to observe. You do NOT need to be flexible or bring a yoga mat. We will sit and stand just like we do in the other sessions – and experience how laughter – even when it is simulated, creates connection, calmness, and joy. This will be a safe environment; we are addressing the awkwardness that people might have around laughter and what to do about it.

We might have to wear a mask in the library, if that is still a requirement, but it won’t stop us from laughing. You can also join us online via zoom.

Please let us know as soon as you can if and how you would like to join us for an afternoon to feel good. Just send us a quick e-mail to [email protected]

With love and laughter

Your Island Coaches Collective
