What you'll learn in this nature class:

Is laughter really the best medicine? Find out during this fun, interactive workshop that combines simulated laughter exercises with breathing techniques to produce a wide range of physical, psychological, and emotional benefits. Medical research provides sufficient data to show that even if a person pretends to laugh or act happy, his/her body produces happiness chemicals. As a result, participants experience enhanced mental and physical health, increased productivity and elevated morale. Class is suitable for all age groups and fitness levels. 

No special clothing or equipment is required.
