Free Beach Yoga for Autism Parents and Caregivers on Folly Beach

Yoga for Autism Parents Child Regression

In December of 2015, our youngest child suffered a very sudden and significant regression that silenced his speech, caused him to withdraw, and to stop making eye contact. He would eventually be diagnosed with autism, and our lives would forever change. Although yoga had already held a significant spot in our lives, it would become a source of healing for our grief and a renewal of purpose as we began our journey as “special needs parents”. After the diagnosis, both Jenny and Matt decided to become yoga teachers so that we could one day help other parents of children with an autism diagnosis.

Folly Beach has continued to hold our hearts and draw us back with it’s very public support of autism families and the Surfer’s Healing tour, and it this public support that made us choose Folly when selecting the ideal location to offer the free yoga class for autism parents and caregivers. It is our sincere hope to offer a class that will replenish and restore the soul, mind, and body. As special needs caregivers this is beyond important–it is essential. We hope that parents will find a safe community and space to practice in this weekly class.

The class is open level, located on a beautiful wide stretch of Folly Beach within sight distance of the pier. Paid city parking is available as are some limited free street side parking spots. For the month of June we will offer this class at 6 pm Thursday evenings-we will continue to adjust the time and days of the class so that we can best serve the autism family community with this class. Please stay tuned to our Facebook page, or check our class schedule page for updates as they are made to the schedule.

We so look forward to practicing with you.

Namaste

Updated to note: 7.1.2017 the class will begin to meet on Friday evenings at 7 pm – please see our schedule for the most updated days and times for the class

Autism safety wristband – Free kit

We just got our “Big Red Safety Box” from the National Autism Association. It had so many thoughtfully chosen safety window / door alarms, decals, this bracelet (an anklet for our little guy–which is actually perfect since he may otherwise remove it!) and so much more. The box and it’s contents are available for free, or with a suggested donation if possible. Donations are accepted from both caregivers or other donors to help fund these lifesaving boxes as well. Spread the word to someone who needs it — safety is a constant uphill battle for many autism parents and you may just be saving a life! A diagnosis is required. Click here to order or donate.

Also, just a quick reminder that our free beach yoga class for autism parents and caregivers is tonight at 6 on the beach at 5th Street East, Folly Beach, SC, and every Thursday @ 6 p.m. for the rest of June.

The days and times will be changing in July . Please give us your feedback on what works best for your family. We want this to be as convenient as possible for everybody.
