Sarah knew just what to do with her MA in adult education: She became a laughter professional. After teaching high school and serving as Executive Director for two non-profits, Sarah became certified in Laughter Yoga and named a Laughter Ambassador by the founder of Laughter Yoga,
Dr. Madan Kataria. She is the Founder of ‘Laugh for the Health of It’, and is a sought-after keynote speaker and conference presenter. For over a decade, Sarah has wowed audiences with her expertise, enthusiasm and highly interactive laugh-it-out approach toward event planning, corporate wellness and personal stress management.
Sarah choreographs an experience that activates childlike play for a vibrant, uplifting and delightful result that has a ripple effect of positivity. Sharing laughter with Sarah becomes a catalyst for personal and group transformation, putting participants in the driver’s seat of their attitudes so they can have the influence and impact they intend. Thanks to her BA in English, and BFA in Photography, she is also the creator of four coloring books, author of The Laughter Planner, co-author of The Laughter Book, and a published photographer and poet. Sarah never comes empty-handed. She fills her presentations and workshops with creative tools that are fun, exciting and guarantee a memorable, and personally transformative experience--not to mention a shot of camaraderie in the arm.
Rachael is a recovering lawyer. In fact, she had enough stress and negativity growing up that she developed Chron’s disease at 16. The doc told her to avoid stress, and then...she was forced to at least try to laugh. After training with Sarah, she became a laughter coach, and has since laughed with hundreds of high school girls, senior adults, as well as staff and patients at Ronald McDonald House. She hosts a weekly Zoom laughter call, and empowers her participants to create lasting change with a daily laughter habit.
This is incredible, considering that Rachael never used to laugh. Instead, she handled medical and labor contract negotiations in the communications industry. She designed and presented workshops for thousands of doctors and health care professionals. Part of Rachael’s legal recovery involved ten years of coaching and leading seminars on personal and professional development for Landmark Worldwide. Rachael is a wife, mother, step-mother and grandmother. Rachael is proof that anyone can laugh and start having fun.
Sarah, the laugher, and Rachael, the lawyer, are identical twins, born two minutes apart.
Together we have created a book that will instruct, entertain, engage, and transform your relationship to laughter. It will stimulate you, as it did us, to create regular laughter habits, and add joy to all your celebrations. We hope you'll laugh with us individually while you eagerly await The Laughter Book release in early 2020.
Laughter Champions ourselves, we are committed to sharing the message that laughter truly
is the best medicine. We've done the research. The evidence-based science is compelling. We've been building our own laughter habits and laughing with others for over a decade and the results are exciting. Helping people overcome resistance to laughter and learn how to laugh intentionally when nothing is funny is incredibly fun and empowering. It puts you in the driver's seat of your life. We give you all the tools you'll need in The Laughter Book.
