“Yoga is the art work of awareness on the canvas of body, mind, and soul.” - Amit Ray

The Autism Society Philippines Wednesday "PWAy Day" aims 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 October 12, Wednesday, from 2pm to 3pm, Yoga Teacher Elizabeth Montenegro-Rye will conduct a Yoga for Relaxation. The class is open to PWAs, 16 years old and above who may be accompanied by a maximum of one (1) companion.

To attend, simply sign up on the form below and prepare a P50 donation to ASP when you get on-site.

"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 a 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. By keeping PWAs active and engaged outside the home, we are also training the society to be more aware of what autism is, to be more appreciative of their gifts and to be more accommodating of their deficits."
