Mindfulness In Motion (MiM): Stress Reduction for Busy Adults

University of Minnesota’s Center for Spirituality & Healing is pleased to offer the Mindfulness in Motion program (MiM) at UMD. Developed by Dr. Maryanna Klatt at the Ohio State University College of Medicine, MiM is a research-based program that offers pragmatic resiliency tools easily implemented in the workplace to reduce daily stress and increase productivity and work engagement. Participants will learn mindful awareness principles that are the key to embodying the benefits of mindfulness. The eight weekly sessions emphasize bodily relaxation with soft background music as well as discussion of mindful awareness of cognitive habits. This program is now open to both University of Minnesota Employees & the general public

The program includes:

  • Guided instruction in mindfulness and movement practices
  • Group discussions
  • Gentle stretching and yoga
  • Daily 20-minute home practice
  • Downloadable audio and video files
  • Participants will also track stress levels, sleep quality and work engagement through a pre- and post-evaluation.

The MiM meets once a week for an hour, scheduled so employees can attend without missing work.

Cost:

General Public: $250

University of Minnesota Employees $200

Reimbursement is offered to employees covered by the UPlan Medical Program. The cost of $200 is fully reimbursed upon completion of seven of the eight sessions and the pre- and post-evaluation. One lifetime reimbursement for this class. Participants are also eligible for 50 Wellness My Way points. **Please note that your spouse or same-sex domestic partner can register for the sessions,  but they are not eligible for either the discounted rate or fee reimbursement.
