You want to feel the shine in your own eyes and see it in everyone's eyes around you!
You think you can't sing with others, so you might as well LAUGH with others!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
"Great time last evening: joyful, spontaneous, play and LOTS of laughter. The "spontaneity" was, of course, only possible because of the thoughtful, flexible, structure provided by Annie. I left light-hearted, open-bodied, and grateful to her and to all those joyful, laugh-loving playmates who gathered willingly to allow for silliness and fun. I look forward to Annie's next laughter session."

"After an hour of laughter yoga led by Annie, I felt relaxed and energized and continued to laugh throughout the day. It felt great. It was also a fun team exercise and really had us connecting with each other through this shared experience. Annie's approach makes the instruction fun, insightful, and easy."
