Do you believe that laughter is the best medicine? Find out for yourself at HortPark every Tuesday evening and laugh your way to a healthier you with Laughter Yoga, a fun programme has taken the globe by storm. Ms Zaibun Siraj, experienced trainer and speaker, will lead a unique workout at Hortpark that blends different forms of 'tension-releasing' laughter and breathing exercises.

Each weekly 20-minute exercise session is so simple that no special attire is needed. An enjoyable invigorating exercise held outdoors at Hortpark will help smoothen frowns and relax tensed muscles at the end of the session.

Some claims about the benefits of laughter for all to share: anti-stress measure, combats insomnia, depression and anxiety, increases endorphins levels, tones up facial face and makes you look younger, brings people together and improves interpersonal relationships.
