Exciting events are planned for future meetings of Feisty Fit Females. More information will be provided as the dates approach. For the most current schedule, send an emai to Connie Carson at and have your email address added to our electronic membership ~ for free.  As you hopefully realize, Feisty Fit Females will not meet on November 27th due to Thanksgiving, or on December 25th. We will meet instead on Thursday, December 11th from 6:30 to 8:30.  It will be a holiday gathering with simple appetizers and beverages.

Our presenter will be O’Tasha Richards from the Progressive Health Center and her topic will be “Laughter Yoga!”  This unique concept of Laughter Yoga and Laughter Club is the brain child of Dr. Madan Kataria, a physician from Mumbai, India. It is now a worldwide movement with over 5000 clubs globally. Laughter Yoga allows anyone to laugh in a group for 15-20 minutes without depending upon a sense of humor, jokes, or feeling happy. Laughter Yoga combines simple laughter exercises, clapping, and gentle yoga breathing, which turns into real laughter when practiced in a group. Laughter Yoga sessions are offered for free at the Progressive Health Center, located at 701 E. Hampden, Suite 225 in Englewood, on the Swedish Hospital Campus.  You may schedule offsite laughter yoga sessions for your organization or group of 5 or more for a reasonable fee.

In January, our presenter will be Susan Hess, who will lead us in a music therapy session. I have been invited to do a presentation at Harvard Divinity School.  The evening will afford me a chance to do a “dress rehearsal” of my talk.  Future sessions in 2015 will include fencing… yes, fencing … and a presentation by the staff of Oncology Rehab.  Kelly Moore led us in a yoga session in 2011 and I still remember it. She is one of the best practitioners I have ever met and I really look forward to her repeat session.

Lots of wonderful sessions are planned.  If you have any topics you’d like addressed, please email me at                     Connie
