Instructors say laughing burns calories and reduces stress. Laughter yoga started in India nearly 20 years ago and is now practiced in more than 60 countries. Each class will last about half an hour. The public is welcome and lunch is provided with the initial fee.

Brandy Chaffee, Choice Health and Fitness: "It just becomes a natural reaction and it's contagious. Once people laugh around you, you tend to start laughing yourself.

Laughter yoga will be offered once a month for now, but more sessions may be added if enough people sign up.
