Poetry Corner at San Carlos Elms

Laughing Yoga?
by resident: Rosemary Bishop

The board reads "Laughing Yoga" at 2:00
to go or not to go-
A waste of time of something to do?
Yoga is joy through movement.

Have you ever experienced Laughing Yoga?
It is something hard to describe.
Is is really the same as Yoga?
Or something just implied?

Our leader from Sidney showed us what to do.
Clap hands, one clap, two claps
Faster now: one clap, two claps, three claps
Saying: HA, HA, HA, HO, HO, HO!
Find Sidney, Australia on the map.

Laughing Yoga is best done in a group.
With a leader to call the motions.
You follow like hens in a coop.
More like waves in the ocean.

Some of the participants said it was interesting.
Our leaser smiled and joked.
He seemed to try to make us laugh,
but he was no Groucho Marx or Jack Benny.

Dominic and Nina had a great interaction shown below during one of the laughter exercise.
Curley, our house dog heard all the fun and joined in. Curley added to our laughter experience.

Wii Bowling at San Carlos Elms

We always have a good time when we bowl. Cheering one another on especially when someone picks up a 7/10 split like George and Don do on occasion.

Wii Bowling is getting pretty serious at San Carlos Elms. Irene bowled a 279 last Friday. 1 strike shy of a perfect game!
