MERRIE Maggie is inviting people to take a break from Christmas preparations and experience the joy of laughter yoga.

Sessions aim to boost energy levels and the immune system by combining laughter exercises with deep breathing.

Maggie Thompson, who runs sessions in Wordsley and Dudley, is inviting people to attend her last events before Christmas to help de-stress at this busy time of year.

Classes will take place at Wordsley Community Centre, The Green, Wordsley, on Monday December 11 from 7pm to 8pm; and Mata Da Mandir Centre, King Street, Dudley, on Thursday December 14 from 11am to midday.
