Laughter Yoga really helped me become more outgoing when I meet new people. Laughter Yoga with Sarah taught me to take life a little less seriously and that it is good to laugh at it once in a while. -Ezra Strohm, University of Minnesota Student
Thanks for explaining Laughter Yoga to me and for the phone session yesterday. This morning I started getting anxious and tearing up. Instead, I did my smile exercise and can’t get the grin off my face!! -Julie Maltos, Nurse, Seattle, Washington
I was a skeptic. Not that I did not know how great it feels to laugh, but forcing myself to laugh, faking a laugh, had absolutely no appeal. As a favor to someone, I recently attended a Laughter Yoga session. Half-way through the session I got it. I literally felt lighter and less stressed. It’s so worth doing. -Lawyer, Minneapolis
The hour went by in a flash. That night I found myself in my car, sitting at a long red light and laughing just to relax. Can’t wait for another session. -Empty Nester, Minneapolis
I attended a Laughter Yoga mini session and have been giggling all day just thinking about it. I’ve been starting my day with smile push-ups ever since! – Beth Glassman, Sr. Counselor at HIRED
Can’t wait to do this again….I want it to become a habit. -Attorney, Atlanta, GA
I am usually hesitant to participate in this sort of activity because I feel self- conscious, but Sarah made the 1-hour class entertaining and non-threatening for a beginner like me. It was a fun and exhilarating experience! -Volunteer & mother of 2 teenagers, Leslie, Mendota Heights, MN
Sarah used many interactive techniques to help us understand what would trigger our bodies and minds so that we could experience many levels of laughter. -Community Volunteer, Minneapolis
I was skeptical at first because I am very picky about what makes me laugh. Sarah’s warm welcome helped this room of complete strangers relax and open up to a new experience. -Merrie Forstein, Minneapolis
Sarah sure isn’t afraid to show her silly side and does a great job encouraging others to do the same. So put all the thoughts you have about yourself down for 30 minutes and let Sarah take you on a playful adventure. I guarantee you won’t forget it!

One day this week the world seemed to be pressing down particularly hard on my shoulders, beyond the normal stresses of work and personal life. I was in no mood to interact with anyone. Sarah insisted that I do 10 “smile pushups.” To my amazement, it made an immediate difference in my mood. I can’t explain it, I’m just sayin’ -Attorney, Minneapolis
