Professional Background and Credentials Working with Elders
I offered weekly Laughter Yoga sessions, adapted for ALL levels of care, including Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing, Independent Living and Dementia Care Residential settings, full-time, for over five years. I created the first Chair and Wheel Chair Laughter Yoga Club in the world, in 2007 and it is featured in this dvd. My work with older adults goes back to the 1980's with graduate and post-graduate studies, private clients, teaching, and community mental health programs. Laughter Yoga is the cherry on top!
Professional Credentials and Experience Working with Elders and Their Families and RCFE Staff:
"Carmela Carlyle received rave reviews for her dynamic, inspiring and informative keynote presentation at the All America Laughter Yoga Conference in San Diego which drew professionals from all over the USA and as far away as Europe, Australia and Ethiopa. Carmela’s background as a polished conference speaker was clearly evident, but it was her charismatic authenticity that engaged us to listen, learn and join her in playfully practicing her original Laughter Yoga exercises.
Equally impressive was Carmela’s post-conference three-hour training workshop demonstrating her abilities as a skillful trainer and coach. And, she even created a rich two-hour DVD as a training tool for participants’ follow-up home practice. Carmela delightfully delivers the total laughing and learning package!”

I work for an Area Agency on Aging in the state of North Carolina. I am pleased to report that after two years of research and rigorous evaluation, in February, 2014, Laughter Yoga was approved in North Carolina as an Intermediate Level Title III-D Evidence-Based Disease Prevention/Health Promotions Program (EBDPHPP), And, as I write this, I am now working towards achieving the highest tier designation. The next step, obviously, will be to seek national designation.
As a Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher, I have incorporated Carmela’s Laughter Yoga with Elders DVD as a key element in the training curriculum for all new Certified Laughter Yoga Leaders.
Carmela’s work is original, inspired and applicable for working with people of diverse fitness levels.Because it so effectively demonstrates how to adapt Laughter Yoga sessions for mobility and/or cognitive limitations, this DVD is a must-have for anyone working with older adults.
I recommend that all CLYT’s buy dozens of Carmela’s DVD’s to sell at your CLYL trainings.
