AN hour of fun and smiles is promised at Merrie Maggie's latest laughter yoga sessions.

Classes consist of laughter and deep-breathing exercises and are based on the Laughter Yoga movement which started 23 years ago by Dr Madan Kataria, a medical GP in India.

Instructor Maggie Thompson says people taking part can expect to give their diaphragm, lungs and facial muscles and larynx an aerobic workout at her session in Wordsley which will be held at Wordsley Community Centre, The Green, on Monday August 13 from 7pm to 8pm.

There will also be a laughter yoga session, combined with a walk, at Leasowes Park, Leasowes Lane, Halesowen, on Wednesday August 22 from 7pm.
