ASP PWAy Day on July 27: Yoga for Relaxation

"Relaxation is a feeling of refreshed tranquility and an absence on tension or worry."

The Autism Society Philippines "PWAy Day" --pronounced [pwey'-dey] -- happens every Wednesday. The weekly activities aim to provide enrichment for teens and adults with autism who are not currently enrolled in schools. ASP PWAy Days will offer opportunities to learn new skills, to socialize with non-family members and to have fun.

On July 27, Teacher Gaizel Adan will guide the group in movements designed to promote wellness and relaxation. The class is open to PWAs, 16 years old and above who may be accompanied by a maximum of one (1) companion.

Participants must sign up on the form below and bring the following.
- P 50 donation to ASP
- comfortable work-out clothes, preferably green
- yoga mat
- towel and an extra shirt

"Adults with autism who are no longer in school end up in the fringes of society." Mona Magno-Veluz, ASP National President shares, "ASP is deeply invested in building a society where individuals with autism be the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive and socially-accepted members of the community -- no matter where they are on the spectrum."
