Laughter for Health

We all know that laughter makes us feel good. Laughter fills your lungs and body with oxygen, exercising the lungs. Participants report reduction in stress, blood pressure, depression and more. Join Chaplains Stephen Findley and Christiana Liem for Laughter Yoga, a blend of yogic deep breathing, stretching and simulated laughter exercises, and cultivate child-like playfulness.
