Laughter Really Is the Best Medicine!
Laughter is contagious and has a powerful and immediate effect on our mind, body and spirit.  Our bodies can’t tell the difference between real or simulated laughter! This class involves deep breathing, stretching, clapping and laughter exercises. Note: we also have a monthly Laughter Yoga and Meditation class one Wednesday evening per month.
Watch the video of one of our classes..
Our laughter exercises in this class can:

Increase blood flow and oxygen to all the major organs
Enhance endorphin levels which make us feel uplifted & can reduce pain
Stimulate immune, digestive & cardiac systems
Reduce stress levels
Relax, strengthen & lengthen the muscles with stretching
Help create a laughing community and be fun!
