This Week Activies at San Carlos Elms

Laughter Yoga
 
Thanks to our friends 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.


Helen was too excited to stay in her seat.

Marilyn loves to laugh.

Thank you Annie for always laughing with us!

 
Wine and Cheese Social
Residents enjoy a night cap with one another.
Emily and Shirley happy to attend.

Dolores and Rigo are all smiles.

Dania, Elsa, Helen and Ana had wonderful conversations.

Bob is enjoying meeting new Residents like Barbara.
 
Cellist Performance
Matt is one of our many talented performers from BeMusic.al.
The Residents can't wait to hear Matt perform again.
