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
