Laughter Yoga

Monday, July 8 at 12:00pm & 7:00pm

Laughing is a vocalization that anyone can do. It relieves stress, which helps keep disease away. Laughter has both psychological and physiological health benefits. Increased oxygen intake clears the lungs and the mind. Laughter is a cardiovascular exercise, ‘internal jogging,’ that burns calories. Here is your chance to try it for yourself! Cynthia Curtis from Funny Farm Laughter Club will lead an hour-long laughter yoga session.
