As the days pass since the CLY leader training, I am so grateful for what the practice of laughter yoga has brought to me. I start my day laughing and I find it easier to slip into spontaneous laughter than I did before. Becoming certified as a laughter yoga leader has deepened my self-awareness and sense of internal peace. Many many thanks Leigh and Jon!" -- Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training feedback, October 2011.
Leigh, thank you again for leading our group in Laughter Yoga on the 20th. Thanks also for educating us on how it developed and emphasizing how much laughter benefits our general health which is the focus of our group – staying healthy. You have such a strong, contagious laugh and are not self-conscience about leading the group, so you made the session really fun. -- UVa High-Risk Breast Cancer Group
Please post this on your website. I have had sciatic nerve damage and pain in my left leg for years. When I was lying down on the floor for the laughter meditation, I felt the familiar pain at first, then it went completely away. It's still gone. That hasn't happened since I've had the pain (for years). I will sleep well tonight." -- Participant, UVa Health Carnival for the Library System, January 2011.
Leigh brings total openness to the classroom, encouraging laughter yet accepting whatever comes. Her support and highly serious silliness inspires you to discover your own inner joy. I felt lovable and optimistic in her presence.
And I laughed a lot." --Cathy Harding, Editor, c-ville weekly
They [the audience] had very warm things to say...'Laughter Yoga is awesome!', 'Laughter yoga is superb!', '...will be leading laughter yoga with office staff!'" -- Megan Orwig, Former Associate Director, Women's Health Virginia
The evaluations from Just Rewards showed Laughter Yoga was clearly the most popular among attendees and people all said it should be repeated again next year. That is good praise indeed." --Cathryn Astin, Care Coordinator, Alzheimer's Association, Central & Western Virginia
You [and Jon] were both great presenters - very knowledgeable and great communicators.” --Marketing Retreat Evaluation feedback
Our consensus was that laughter yoga was a fun alternative to a normal day of group-building exercises...it was a welcome stress relief and as long as people let their guards down and actively participated, they all had fun. I heard comments about faces and chests being sore from laughing so much, and one friend said that every time she completed a problem on her homework assignment, she wanted to cheer "Very good, very good, yay!" --Jordan Hart, Gamma Phi Beta Sorority, UVa
All of the feedback I've gotten from the girls has been very great and positive. They all thought it was really fun, and thought it was a great way to relieve some stress before finals, so thanks so much for coming! We really appreciated it!" --Alli Flicker, Chi Omega Sorority, UVa
