With laughter as our roadmap, we refresh and connect with each other in a unique way. Come ready to stretch your smile muscles and give your imagination a workout to remember. Along the way, we’ll engage with new skills for self-care, stress management, and resilience. We’ll begin with Smile-Ups and end with a special laughter meditation. Within minutes, you’ll be clapping, breathing, and stretching, wondering where your inhibitions have gone. A great way to socialize and stimulate creativity as well as get some important and needed exercise in a safe and fun way, for you and your inner child!
