The world shut itself down in 2020. As cities, states and entire countries reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic, restaurants, bars and other small businesses were forced to shutter their doors.

Celeste Green kicks off our weekend of laughter with a special session for the online participants for the 2nd annual All The Laughs Comedy Awards!
Celeste Greene is a Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher and US Laughter Ambassador. Celeste has been laughing on purpose for over a decade and enjoys helping individuals and groups feel better through intentional laughter.
What is Laughter Yoga? Laughter Yoga is a form of exercise in which anyone can laugh without needing any jokes, humor, or comedy. The concept is based on scientific evidence that both intentional laughter and laughing at something funny both bring about health benefits. In Laughter Yoga sessions, participants laugh on purpose and engage in playful laughter exercises (no special exercise clothing or yoga mat required). The laughter that is initially generated as a form of exercise becomes genuine and contagious. We intersperse deep breathing all throughout the session, which enables participants to laugh longer and deeper. The practice started in 1995 by an Indian medical doctor and is now practiced in over 100 countries all over the world.
