|Newsletter No 27||March 2011|
Well we have finally secured a venue for the 6th 2011 Australasian Laughter Yoga Conference. It will be held at the Nunyara Conference Centre in Adelaide from 7pm on Friday the 26th to 4pm on Sunday the 28th August. Their website is http://www.nunyara.com.au/ if you’d like to check it out. I visited it recently and it is nestled in the foothills overlooking Adelaide and will be an ideal venue. Thanks to David Cronin for helping me locate it. If you’d like to be one of our presenters at the Conference please contact me so I can get an agenda established. More exact details will follow shortly but put the dates in your diary now.
Dr Kataria Teacher Training
The Good Doctor will be conducting his 5 day Teacher Training from the 22nd to 26th August on the week prior to the Conference. If you are a Laughter Leader and want to take the next step with Laughter Yoga this training is a MUST DO. There is nothing quite like learning from the Master himself. Trust me, a week with the Good Doctor will change your life forever.
On Sunday night the 28th August we will be conducting the first ever Laughter Show in Australia. It was created to bring awareness of Laughter Yoga to more people who may not attend a Laughter Club. This will be open to the General Public and will be held in a hall or theatre in Adelaide. The Good Doctor has already run several of these in India with GRRREAT feedback. As it involves a lot of audience participation the more Laughter Yoga folks we have involved the better it will be.
Make A Wish
In January I was contacted by one of our major Children Support Foundations called Make A Wish. They grant wishes to terminally ill children. On the 25th March they are holding a national Laugh For Kids on Wish Day. All details are at http://www.everydayhero.com.au/event/laughforkids Someone told me recently that “if you want to go fast go alone…if you want to go far go with others.” I see this alliance as a GRRREAT way that Laughter Yoga can go even further into the future.
LYOZ Video Box
If you check out our LYOZ website http://www.laughteryoga-australia.org/ you will notice that we now have a Video Box on the front page. If you have any video or You Tube clips that we can use please send them to me. The one that is there at present promoting the Sydney Laughter Club is a GRRREAT example of how effective the visual message can be. Well done Usuff.
LYOZ Facebook Page
In conjunction with this we now have a Fabebook Page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Laughter-Yoga-Australia/152940728059426?v=wall&ref=pdem. Whether you love or hate Social Media it’s here to stay. Used properly it can be very effective in spreading the word on events and activities which we will list on the main website. Hop on any time and share your Laughter Yoga stories.
