    More from Pixel

    Laughter is the best Medicine, Laughter Yoga.... World Laughter Day!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Pixel told me, 'They had an hour class that was filled with all kinds of exercises to make you laugh and release your inner joy. It was hard not to laugh when watching everyone.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    To my surprise, May 2nd  was World Laughter Day. World Laughter Day was first observed on January 11, 1998, in Mumbai, Indiaby Dr. Madan Kataria.
    Being someone who loves to laugh,  I went to Santa Monica, California to see what Laughter Yoga was all about.Sebastian Gendry, founder of the North America Laughter Yoga, led a laughter class. The class integrated laughter, positive affirmations, and movement. Many of the participants are working through challenges; whether it be physical or emotional. I watched a wide range of ages take part in these exercises.
    It was hard to film without letting out a few giggles at watching this outward display of joy. A picnic was held after the class to celebrate laughter and life. After a very short time; a cane was set aside, and I noticed the owner of that cane moving with ease.
    Is laughter the best medicine?  I will leave that for you to decide
