Laughter For Health Workshops

Laughter For Health Workshops are held at The Healthy Life Centre, Bread Street, Edinburgh


                  We do not stop playing because we grow old – we grow old                                                      
                                                 because we stop playing!  


Laughter Workshop

A really good laugh is great for your health and can make you feel amazing! Our Laughter Workshops teach you about the science of laughter and the physiological benefits for our bodies and their well-being. You’re also encouraged to play – something you probably haven’t done for a while - so embrace your inner child and have some fun! You’ll leave feeling younger, healthier and happier.


Laughter Workshops are suitable for all ages and abilities - from first timers to seasoned giggle enthusiasts!


Cost £25 on the door (£22 concessions) or £20 early bird special offer – must be paid in advance (£18 concessions).


The date of our next Laughter Workshop will be announced soon!
