Sebastien Gendry is a leading American Laughter Therapist. A work-related burnout and ensuing journey towards recovery led him to discover and fall in love with the world of therapeutic laughter in the early 2000s. He then played a major role in introducing Laughter Yoga in North America, Russia and other countries, and was a major influence behind the creation of its master trainer program. He is the creator of the Laughter Wellness method, now practiced in 42 countries and counting. He has traveled close to one million miles over the past decade offering a variety of laughter programs to 1,000s of people on four continents, and continues to do so.
He has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, 60 minutes, ABC Good Morning America, National Public Radio and many more national media in the USA and abroad.
He is the Founder and CEO of the Laughter Online University (a leading provider of eLearning solutions on Laughter Therapy) and The Laughter Consultants, LLC (a team of professional wellbeing experts).
Sebastien encapsulates and shares the power of positive and playful energy and creativity. His authentic and engaging style motivates and empowers audiences with practical tools they can use to better their health and quality of life. This is so much more than being “not sick.” He is fluent in English, Spanish and French, and conversational in German.
