Joe is a master presenter, teacher and engager of audiences. With seemingly little intervention and a very relaxed stage presence he can enliven and move huge groups into an excited and happy state of being.
Cate MacKenzie, Stand-Up Comedienne and Love Coach
"We had Joe over at our dance event for a morning warm up session............ He showed a great deal of preparation, consideration and lightheartedness from start to end in the way he delivered the session.....
....This was an experiment...... Laughter yoga landed really well with the participants, and unlocked the feeling states, loosened up the bodies and made us feel even more connected....I will definitely invite him and he laughter yoga back to our future dance events!

'Taking the fundamentals from Yoga, Joe seamlessly merges them with deep Yogic breathing and cheerfulness to gently reacquaint us with our inner laughter and leave us with a deep sense of well-being. Much more positive, cheerful and energised.
I was surprised how quick and effective Laughter Yoga was to relieve my stress and delighted to have a skip in my step again. I left the session feeling physically and emotionally uplifted.
natural laughter skills has the power to significantly change lives for the better and Joe delivers in a friendly, inquisitive and humorous manner.'

"I thought that you were engaging, honest, funny, energy changing, transformative, authentic, and very much enjoyed by all our members the evening you came and made us laugh and also look at ourselves and what makes life important, interesting and fun."
John Cato, Chairman of Bristol YES Group
"He transformed us from a group of 130 tired, nervous skeptics to a room full of beaming, open hearted companions.
Within minutes of his session opening, the energy levels in the conference hall changed.
Bodies relaxed, spirits were lifted and we connected, naturally and simply with the people beside and around us. When the next formal conference session started, we were open,
ready, receptive and full of energy and optimism.”

'I've found that each day after I do them my mood definitely improves and I tend to have a better day because of it. I think it gives me a more positive view of the day and makes me wake up a bit before I go to lectures etc. today I didn't have time to do them this morning as I was in a bit of a rush and I notice I felt a lot moodier, but this might have been because of an early start.
My mood and energy levels have definitely improved each time I've done the exercises, and my resilience has also improved.'
Emily, trainee GP
In the world of business it's easy to let the corporate agenda can take over completely on a daily basis. However, beneath all our targets, goals and business objectives, there are personal dreams, aspirations, hopes and concerns. We're all human and an integral thread of connection and recognition at that level of humanity is vital.
For me, your courses and retreats underpin this deeper level of connection. Stepping aside and away from our masks, using humour and lightness, makes communication more meaningful, getting to the heart of the matter, literally, with joy, levity and mutual appreciation.
