Laughter History

In 2005 my best friend Joanne Helms got trained by Dr. Madan Kataria in Interlaken so she brought Laughter Yoga to Portugal.

When she made the first laughter yoga session in Lisbon I was there and I did get very surprised with the practice. In that moment of my life I was down and I was not happy with my job and with my personal life.

At the end of 2005 I started to work in a personal development association as a receptionist, and when my colleagues heard me laughing, everybody suggested making laughter yoga leader training with Joanne Helms.

So I did go to have the training, and she taught me how to become an excellent laughter yoga leader. I loved the experience and I was feeling already that Laughter Yoga was producing good benefits in my body and in my mind. I was getting ready to be happy again…

After training I started to work for free to make a good disclosure of this new and pioneer method created by Dr. Madan Kataria.

As Dr. Madan Kataria regarded my effort, he honored me with International Laughter Yoga Ambassador in October 2006 in the first European congress in Berlin. It was an honor to know Dr. Madan Kataria.

I got really motivated so I decided to become a Laughter Yoga Teacher. I did the training with Dr. Madan Kataria, in Interlaken in May 2007. It was an amazing experience.

After the training… started to work and never stopped.

It´s rare I feel down or unhappy since I laugh every day. My life changed absolutely for the best!


I´ve already trained 600 laughter yoga leaders in Spain and Portugal. I do like to make corporate sessions, and have already dealt with some reference companies like GlaxoSmith, Lóreal, Rituals, Edp, Pfizer, Bial, etc…

Another group I really like to work with is seniors. They need to laugh more than anybody. They really deserve to live on joy and happiness. So I have a project specially dedicated to them, where I take laughter yoga sessions on Day Centers or at Homes.

Helping others reach laughter is how I’ve found my way to live in peace and harmony. I´m very honored to bring more joy into my personal and professional life, and to be able to bring joy and happiness to others too.


I like to be the best human I can and I reach this objective through laughter. Thank you Dr. Kataria for teaching me to laugh unconditionally. Thank you :)

To laugh helps humans to be more and better humans.

Thank you to all people who follow my work and support laughter yoga in Portugal since 2005.

We are growing because laughter is the best way to joy and health!!!
