"THE LAUGHTER NURSE"
Janet Carroll has had an impressive dual career. Her 48 years in nursing and 35 years in massage therapy have given her not only decades of experience in health services, but a special insight into well being. It was out of this insight that her passion for Laughter Yoga was born.
In 2014, Janet added to her already long list of credentials with certifications as a Laughter Yoga Leader and Instructor. She has since made it her mission to provide care-giving professionals (particularly education professionals) with the tools they need to heal from and prevent burnout, restore their joy, and connect more deeply with students. Janet engages her audiences in a way that combines both her wisdom and passion, imparting fun and incredibly effective skills that can be applied immediately and continued throughout life.
"It's time to take laughter seriously"

WHAT IS LAUGHTER YOGA?
Laughter Yoga is a single exercise routine that reduces physical, mental and emotional stress simultaneously.
It combines Laughter with Yoga Breathing to quickly stop cortisol and release happiness hormones into the body, opening the door for functioning in the Parasympathetic Nervous System. All this happens within the first 3-5 minutes of your Laughter!
