A farm is a great place to laugh. People come to the Funny Farm Laughter Club to let loose and laugh just because they can. They liberate their laughter and they feel healthier and happier. Laughter Yoga is a simple yet profound, complete well-being exercise routine that is practiced around the world.

The Funny Farm Laughter Club meets at Perfect Christmas Tree Farm. We all want health and happiness. But instead, we are stressed and depressed and isolated, with negative thoughts. I teach how to use laughter to bring more joy into life. We combine playful laughter exercises and deep yogic breathing. We all laugh together for no reason, except for the best reasons – health, happiness and world peace.
