“Throughout my years as a Therapist, I was fascinated by how children found it so easy to play and laugh together regardless of age, disability or social status. I was curious to delve deeper into this and by chance (or in my opinion fate), happened across a Laughter Yoga session on Facebook. I trained as a Laughter Yoga Leader and since then have been providing Laughter Yoga sessions, mainly with children. I think I refound my inner child and I LOVE it!” Says Louise
