What is a JOY SESSION?

Joy Sessions can be tailor made and themed… they can last anything from 15minutes to a full day…

I have been officially facilitating joy for 7 years and I’ve found the swiftest ways to improve our Wellness and Uplift morale, is to inspire everyone to re-connect with their ability to play and laugh again.

A joy session is highly energetic and interactive and combines Laughter exercises with Playful games – activating the imagination and the happy hormones that physically enable a good mood. I’ve watched highly stressed adults arrive at a session cynical and unsure and within minutes I see them transformed into joyful and playful, anything is possible beings again.
