At ActivCare Coaching our mission is to help older adults improve or maintain their health and wellbeing by offering care professionals and volunteers fun, interactive training and ongoing CPD support. With great success in 2020 our Level 2 Seated Exercise & Dance Leader course has had participants across the globe, supporting oragnisations such as NHS, Age UK and New Zealand Society of diversional and recreational therapists.
Here’s what one individual from Barchester Healthcare had to say about our course:
“I find that the sessions have made a positive impact to me as I really enjoy delivering them. I even do them at home with my 94 year old mother!”
Due to the success of our Online Seated Exercise Course, to help further support our coaches this month we launched our Online Level 1 Seated Laughter Yoga course, developed by team member Natalie, who has a Diploma in Laughter Therapy.
Level 1 Online Seated Laughter Yoga Course
Our Online Level 1 Seated Laughter Yoga Course is a comprehensive guide to delivering a Laughter Yoga session. The course provides learners with a knowledge of Laughter and Laughter Yoga as well as equipping them with exercises to carry out.
The course covers the following modules:
- Laughter & How it Evolved,
- How Laughter Impacts Health,
- Laughter Yoga,
- 4 Stages of Laughter Yoga
- Laughter Yoga Exercises.
Laughter Yoga Competition
To celebrate the launch of our Laughter Yoga Course we recently ran a competition asking care homes to send us a video of their clients laughing. After receiving lots of lovely videos we selected this video from Wellburn Care, Craghall Care Home as the winner.
This video really made us laugh! Especially when one of the lovely ladies says ‘Don’t over do it dear’! Craghall Care Home received the prize of a free Online Level 1 Seated Laughter Yoga Course!
We can’t wait to see how they get on with their sessions soon!
