The first time I participated in a Laughter Yoga workshop with Julie Plaut Warwick, I was completely mesmerized by the experience. I’ve always known that laughter is therapeutic, but to see and experience it first-hand through Julie’s workshop was transformative. Julie helps you laugh, she helps you cry, she helps you giggle, she helps you release emotions you didn’t even know you had. Julie knits people together in an experience that is a must-have for any organization wanting to build engagement, caring and community. Ha Ha Ho Ho Ho!

 Julie has led a few wonderful Laughter Yoga sessions for us at the Swedish MS Center! Participants come into the sessions with a wide range of abilities, backgrounds, and emotions. Julie’s inclusive approach allows and encourages everyone to participate, share, and enjoy. Even the most skeptical can’t help but join in on the fun. Without fail, the energy of each individual, and the group as a whole, is drastically uplifted, relaxed, and connected by the end of class. Despite whatever may be going on in their lives, Laughter Yoga gives our participants a chance to take time out of their day to be silly, have fun, and most importantly - LAUGH! Thank you Julie!

I hired Julie to do Laughter Yoga with my staff and faculty at our back-to-school retreat. Even though it was our culminating activity after a long day, everyone was engaged and found value in learning and experiencing Laughter Yoga. Julie has a lovely presence and made everyone feel at ease with this ‘risk-taking’ activity. I loved how she tied it into teaching and working with our gifted students at Open Window School.
Julie was the ‘creative guru” at our music retreat. Her joyful and welcoming presence, and play-based activities, were key ingredients in helping us all overcome our self-censoring and fears of failure. She facilitated exercises that helped us bond as a group, establish a playful and mutually supportive environment, gain in confidence, and get down to creative work. I can’t imagine how the weekend would have been a success without her!

Laughter is great medicine...really it has been scientifically proven. And Julie Plaut Warwick knows how to make you laugh. Our broken world can certainly benefit from lots of laughter and Julie is a great facilitator. In less than 5 minutes, at the recent NewCAJE Conference in Northern California, she had the entire conference healing through the wonderful medium of humor and laughter.
— Judy Caplan Ginsburg
Laughter Yoga seemed far outside my comfort zone but I decided to try it after seeing Julie Plaut Warwick wow the crowd at the NewCAJE opening ceremony and she did not disappoint. She is engaging and funny and encouraging. No need to worry if you have any mobility issues, she seamlessly includes everyone and makes it all work. Laugh with Julie, you’ll be happy you did.

Laughter has so many faces that enlighten, reflect, alleviate, hurt, and heal. It requires the most sensitive, compassionate, and strong enabler to help oneself touch its source and bring it alive as a support, building block, and force field to move forward. Julie Plaut Warwick is an expert enabler who helps you find that source, light it up and bring it out. I have never loved laughing so much until I engaged with Julie, my friend and my laughter soul mate!

When we laugh, we experience a change in our brains, even when it is not in response to humor. We are hard wired to laugh to relieve stress, to wake us up, and to help us focus. Laughter yoga will give you a technique to purposefully engage your innate ability to work through anxiety and stress. A natural way to bring about a form of healing that we carry with us all the time. Laughing is a free medicine that fully approved, and the side effects are that you light up a room.

Julie Plaut Warwick can make you laugh until you cry! What a release of pent-up emotions and feelings that float away with laughter. Laughter IS the best medicine, especially the way Julie so brilliantly demonstrated at the New Caje 8 conference in California recently. We all got something out of it. She is a master at this technique, as well as a therapist. Well done, Julie!!!
