Luvena Rangel (The Curvy Yogi) kickstarted the gathering with a short, energizing chair and laughter yoga session. While the back & neck stretches eased out the exhaustion after a busy week, the giggles and deep belly laughter that followed ensured everyone had their hearts racing a bit faster and also ensured alertness for the rest of the evening.
The meeting commenced with the KE prayer led by KE Member Dr. Antony Pais. KE President, Clarence Pereira next addressed the audience by drawing an interesting parallel between recent world events to his central message – It is never too late to take a new post. He also shared an update on the members’ Turkey trip that was followed by a montage, giving the members a glimpse of the visit.
