YOGA laughter classes running in Wordsley aim to energise and lift the spirits of the stressed-out.

The next Merrie Maggie’s Laughter Club runs at Wordsley Community Centre, The Green, on Monday February 11 from 7pm to 8pm.

Class leader Maggie Thompson said: “Laughter yoga is a unique concept where anyone can laugh for no reason, without the need for jokes or comedy.

“It combines laughter exercises with deep breathing that brings more oxygen into our body and brain; making one feel more energised.

“As we get older we don’t laugh as often and sometimes need humour to light our spark.

“A good ‘belly laugh’ has many health and emotional benefits, lifting our spirits and helping us to see all the good things around us.”

Classes cost £3 each.
