In our fun-filled sessions, we'll combine a physical warm-up, yoga-based breathing and stretches, followed by a range of acting improvisations
designed to get you giggling. Laughter doesn't come easily to everyone, but luckily the body can't actually distinguish between real and fake laughter. So faking it has the same beneficial effect! If you're undecided, remember this: Children laugh about 400 times a day, whereas adults manage a miserable 15.
