Laughter Yoga creates community connection which is just as important as the medical and emotional benefits.

“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!”

Testimonial for Carmela’s expertise in working with elders and eldercare professionals:

As I said before I left, “You were PERFECT.” And I seldom (if ever) say that or think that. You made the talk personal, yet geared to eldercare professionals.

You helped us see how to add joy into our own lives and into the lives of those we serve. How perfect is that?”
