What is a Laughter Tour?
Imagine exploring beautiful destinations surrounded by smiling, laughing faces. Imagine journeying to new lands and being met by joyful people who welcome you like family. Imagine being part of a group of travelers committed to making the world a better place. Imagine laughing and playing together with new friends from around the world, united through the universal voice of laughter.
If the idea of being part of such a group inspires you, we invite you to join us for the joyride of a lifetime!
The spread of Laughter Yoga around the world has resulted in thousands of Laughter Clubs in more than 65 countries, with people in every culture gathering together to share the spirit of laughter. Laughter Tours are a means by which participants may meet new laughter friends and experience the joy of connecting with others who are committed to laughing through life. Transcending national boundaries and cultural differences, laughter is the language that unites us all. Hop on board and join the global laughter family!
At each stop on the tour, we will be meeting with Laughter Yoga leaders, teachers, and Laughter Club members, learning new laughter exercises and experiencing the "flavor" of Laughter Clubs in different regions. No ordinary sightseeing tour, each Laughter Tour adventure will be filled with creative and fun-filled photo opportunities, group activities, and the warm spirit of joy and friendship.
Laughter Adventure Travel was founded in 2010 by Jeffrey Briar and Anne Timpany in the spirit of "World Peace Through Laughter", connecting people around the globe via heart-centered travel opportunities. With their exuberant passion for sharing the gift of laughter with the world, Jeffrey and Anne combined their talents and experience to launch this unique tour company--fostering a global laughter family by visiting Laughter Clubs in every country and culture.
Considered to be the most experienced laughter exercise leader in the western world, Jeffrey is also the creator of the original Laughter Cruise and founder of the Laguna Beach (California) Laughter Club, which recently welcomed its twenty-thousandth laugher and which is the first Laughter Club outside of Asia to meet seven days a week. As the Director of the Laughter Yoga Institute and a Laughter Yoga Master Teacher, Jeffrey has trained countless laughter leaders and has appeared on Oprah, the BBC, NBC, NPR, and more. Through the creation of numerous original publications, videos, and unique laughter-related events, Jeffrey has been a pioneer in spreading awareness and experiential knowledge of the transformative power of laughter, and now brings his unparalleled creativity and experience to the world of Laughter Travel.
As a Joy Coach and Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher, Anne leads Laughter Yoga classes, workshops, and leader trainings throughout the Rocky Mountain region. Anne shares the gift of laughter through individual Joy Coaching sessions, and practices the art of living joyfully through laughter each and every day.
Laughter Adventure Travel made its debut in May 2011 with the Laughter Club Bus Tour of Europe, touring Switzerland, northern Italy, Slovenia, and Austria and creating new friendships through laughter along the way. Jeffrey, Anne, and the Laughter Bus group joined local Laughter Clubs for Laughter Yoga sessions, All-Gibberish parties, a Laughter Hike in the woods and the first-ever International Festival of Laughing Without Reason, cultivating heart-based connections with people at every location through the common language of laughter.
