“Training with Robert Rivest was an absolutely wonderful introduction to Laughing Yoga. His years of practice and training in Laughter Yoga, martial arts and being a Mime add such a rich foundation from which to leap from. The stories and teaching skills cultivated from his years of experience are truly inspirational;clear, simple, humble and kind. I value learning from an individual that lives what he teaches. Robert Rivest is the real deal. He creates space for an open heart and an open mind, daily. He sends you off into the world of Laughter Yoga with total support and access to lots of wonderful information and contacts! I highly recommend this training!"
