                        About Robin

World Laughter Day ~ 2012

 

Robin's Wellness Journey through Laughter

 

2006: Robin retired early from a 26 year Law Enforcement Career in fingerprint identification due to stress related health challenges

 

2010: Robin's doctor asked her to make a verbal noise like yodeling while being examined and I found that I was unable....so the quest to heal began

 

I researched the benefits of laughter on the Internet and discovered Laughter Yoga which is currently practiced in 100 countries with 10,000+ groups. After watching YouTube videos in several countries I found a local Laughter Yoga class to try....for me this was like bungee jumping! Immediately my health improved and I also discovered how laughter changes the quality of life for others.

 

2011: My passion was born to do whatever it took to bring the benefits of laughter to others and for the next 3 years helped establish Laughter Matters, a San Diego based Laughter Yoga non-profit.

 

I became the first Laughter Matters Certified Laughter Yoga Leader and another 150 people trained to be Laughter Yoga Leaders followed. My primary responsibility was to help train and mentor these new leaders as they brought laughter into the community.

 

2013: Robin became a solopreneur creating Gifts of Laughter to continue bringing the benefits of laughter to others when the grant funding ended for Laughter Matters.

 

Based upon the foundation of Laughter Yoga I took additional training and became a Laughter Wellness Instructor.

 

2014: I became a Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher, now able to certify new Laughter Yoga Leaders.
