Laughter Yoga at San Carlos Elms

With each visit, more and more Residents are getting excited with Laughing Yoga.
Thanks Care Indeed to we have a wonderful Laughing Yoga, Annie instructing us.

Laughter yoga is a practice involving prolonged voluntary laughter. Laughter yoga is based on the belief that voluntary laughter provides the same physiological and psychological benefits as spontaneous laughter. Laughter yoga is done in groups, with eye contact, jokes and playfulness between participants. Forced laughter soon turns into real and contagious laughter.

We had fun taking "laughing" photos of one another and then selfie's with our friends.

Dan enjoyed this hour of laughter yoga and looks forward to Annie's next visit.
