INTRODUCING SOUL RYEDERS’ ON-DEMAND CLASS LIBRARY:
Until recently SOUL RYEDERS’ yoga classes have focused on our clients with both live and virtual Yoga 4 Cancer classes. Now, we offer on-demand classes – with all four of our communities in mind: clients, caregivers, volunteers, and donors. With a variety of classes and themes, we hope there is something for everyone. Take SOUL RYEDERS with you when you travel, work in a class when it fits your schedule.
Below is the catalog of current classes on-demand with descriptions for each class. Each class is 30 minutes or less and are complimentary. Keep coming back as we will continue to add to this growing library!
This is a 15 minute mindfulness meditation session using the breath as an anchor to the present moment. At the end you are given the option of concluding your meditation or continuing on longer if you would like.
Gathas are short verses that provide some assistance in keeping the mind focused on your breath and call us into the present moment. By offering the thinking mind something “to do” through reciting the words of the poem, we strengthen the observing mind.
This is a 20 minute session that is a great meditation for coming into the present movement using all five senses.
Loving Kindness is the practice of paying attention to ourselves and others with a sense of interest and care. It can help us feel less judgmental and increase our sense of connection to others. Loving-kindness can shift the way you feel about relationships and cultivate well-being.

“Thank you so much for the slow down yoga. I haven’t done yoga in over two years and I was able to do everything. It helped kicked me into doing more. During this isolation I have not been taking care of myself. Right now I will.” – Recent participant of our Slowdown Yoga class
“More than 36 million Americans practice yoga. Whether you come to your mat to become more limber, or just to be away from your phone for an hour, yoga offers a host of health benefits” – Northwestern Medicine
