The class began with some socializing and a talk about laughter yoga by Brother TC Lim. Next, the group started warm up with breathing exercises, then the laughter yoga games started. He emphasised that in laughter yoga, the laughs should come from the diaphragm and full belly laughs provide the most benefits.

The three other teachers took turn to conduct the session with different basic steps like laughter yoga breathing, clapping and chanting, childlike playfulness and imitation of animal movements.
