Regional Laughter Leader

Hi, I’m HeatherJoy, regional laughter leader.

For many years, headlines and deadlines ruled my life – along with stress. Then I was introduced to laughter yoga and laughter lines developed.

Laughter yoga exercises taught me to smile more broadly, breathe better, laugh more freely and look at challenges with a lighter, more hope-filled or playful, lens.

I trained in India with Dr. Madan Kataria, gaining laughter yoga teacher certification, and have backed that with further studies in science of happiness and positive psychology.

In 2017 I was honoured as a laughter ambassador for my work in bringing people together through laughter, particularly in regional Queensland.

My previous working life in corporate and government environments has provided a rich understanding of competing deadlines, projects, budgets, change, and personalities, helping to create workplace and conference laughter for wellbeing sessions and workshops that resonate with

Spreading a happydemic of wellbeing through laughter, seriously.

Personal Assistant

Hi, I’m Emerhin, Cris’ PA.

I’ve always found myself enjoying spontaneity and adventures. I’m not a travel junkie, in fact, I hate planning trips and travelling long distances, but I sometimes enjoy going on unexpected short trips.

I love drinking good coffee (can’t survive a day without it), cooking for my loved ones and closest friends, and singing on stage (I’ve always believed I’m a talented person).
