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.


Her broad background includes working as a nurse practitioner, on a hospital staff, in public health, as a nurse educator and coordinator, as a nurse consultant, a massage practitioner, and a massage instructor at her own school of massage. 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. 

Equally important to Janet's Laughter Yoga Certification is the five years she spent learning a Tibetan curriculum of sound, color, and vibration where she earned a masters degree in that specialty.


All of these accumulated skills allow Janet to engage 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.
