With the introduction of Laughter Fusion this year Michele has begun integrating more dancing, singing and playing alongside laughter. 

While laughter yoga can be taught seated and to groups with limited mobility it can also be taught as a high energy, aerobic workout. Michele's classes could even be called laughter fitness.

Michele shared her top ten tips for enlivening and energizing any laughter yoga class and advised that we consider what the body is doing during any laughter exercise and how to more fully engage the body while we're laughing.

A handout of these top 10 tips is available below:
