Laughing Yoga at San Carlos Elms
Thanks to our friend from Care Indeed we are laughing happily with our Laughter Yoga Instructor Annie.
Laughter Yoga combines unconditional laughter with Yogic Breathing.
Laughter is simulated as a body exercise in a group; with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific face that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits.

Wii Bowling Tournament at San Carlos Elms
The Residents and the Activity Department have fun competing and cheering for each other during our Wii Bowling Tournaments.
Elsa is one of our top bowlers.
She was happy with her scores of the evening.
Her best score this night was a 201!
Tillie is our most improved player.
She had difficulty at first,
but now she is bowling 188!!
Russ and Marilyn are our newest bowlers.
Bowling an average of 150!
Russ helping his wife Marilyn position the remote is just the right way to pick up the spare.
Activity Assistant Ashley showed off her skills by bowling a high of 192!
Activity Director Kathleen bowled her highest score ever at 235!
Even with those high scores the Residents still beat the Activity Department, two games to one.
We had so much fun and are looking forward to our next match up.
