SOUL RYEDERS PROGRAMS FOR OUR CLIENTS

MEDITATION and CONVERSATION

SOUL RYEDERS has launched live, online Meditation and Conversation. We invite you to join us each Wednesday from 10:00am-12:00pm. This program will help you learn to quiet your mind, tune into your senses and be present to what is happening moment by moment instead of getting swept away by the story line of your thoughts.

This weekly program includes a guided meditation followed by a chance to talk with other people impacted by a cancer diagnosis. People with cancer, survivors and caregivers are welcome to attend.

YOGA 4 CANCER: Live and Online

During this time of anxiety and isolation, we are pleased to bring SOUL RYEDERS’ Yoga4Cancer program into your home. The need to move and connect is now more important than ever. Although much has changed in our world right now, we believe it is important to continue to focus on your physical and emotional health.

Our Y4C instructors, Janet and Stephanie, will be leading these live online classes twice a week: Mondays at 4:30pm and Saturdays at 11:00am.  Each class is one hour and is designed for cancer patients or survivors – whether new to Y4C or a previous attendee. Class size is limited to 8 participants.

FRIDAY CHECK-IN with STACY

Recognizing the extra stress and isolation that many of our clients are experiencing, we have started a weekly drop-in online live group facilitated by our clinical social worker, Stacy Weissberg.  We hope this group will provide support, enhance coping skills and foster connections among our clients.

This is a weekly session every Friday from 10:00am – 11:00am designed for our clients. The call-in instructions will be sent via email each week. If you are a new client to SOUL RYEDERS and are interested in this weekly check-in, please email us at soulstrong@soulryeders.org.
