Do you enjoy guided meditation? Do you enjoy being led along a story? Do you enjoy relaxing? Come, join Ty for Friday nights and a relaxing visualization into nature, fantasy, or life events. Get comfortable, pillows, cover, whatever you need to relax. And, if you fall asleep, that's fine. Sessions tend to run 30-45 minutes Friday evenings, and they are free. Originally, Ty started offering these sessions for just his friends, then he opened them up to his email email list. Now, Ty is making these available to members of his DeStress Meetup group. Most of the attendees are not on Meetup, so do not expect a lot of RSVPs on Meetup. But, RSVPs are appreciated to let us know you are interested. We use the Zoom platform for these sessions.

People are attending from all over North America, so don't let location stop you. Some have their video on, and some turn on their video. You choose. Accessible Yoga that is available to everyone, regardless of their level of physical ability. You can practice in a chair or on a mat. Improve your health, change your attitude, and have some fun with this gentle, mindful, therapeutic, chair based approach to your yoga practice. We’ll explore the many ways that yoga practice can be modified to suit students with disabilities, physical challenges, chronic illness, seniors, and anyone who doesn’t feel comfortable in other yoga classes. Each session will open with a grounding practice to set the intention for the session. Then, we will step through a series of asanas (flexibility exercises or repetitive movements) with a focus on being mindful in the practice. Each asana in this type of yoga is adaptable to what ever your level of practice is for that day. Everyone will be doing self adjustments (adapting movements, taking rests) in each asana. Each asana will aid in expanding the body's flexibility, as well as assist in balancing the nervous and glandular systems. These exercises are typically done while sitting in a chair. If you prefer to use a yoga mat, please bring one with you. Between each asana, there will be an opportunity to relax and repeatedly to tune into the body, growing and expanding our awareness of the present moment. In addition, near the end of the session, we have a period of deep relaxation (shavasana) which often includes a teacher directed guided relaxation. We close each class with a short guided meditation for relaxation. The purpose of all yoga is to prepare the mind for meditation, and so in keeping with tradition, we unite the body, mind and spirit in a short meditation. Each session will start with the same sequence of asanas that are easy to remember, so you can lead your own practice at home between sessions and after the end of this workshop. Come join us while we have fun and work on issues such as: Arthritis Diabetes Disease Resistance Flexibility Hypertension As with any meditative process, this gentle, enjoyable movement practice is great for stress reduction. As with any movement practice, you must have the approval of your physician before starting. Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes. • What to bring Wear comfortable clothes that allow you to stretch. You might want to bring a water bottle. Do not judge the attendance by the number of RSVPs on Meetup. Most of the regulars are not on Meetup.
