Mindfulness In Motion
For University of Minnesota Employees

The University of Minnesota’s Center for Spirituality & Healing is pleased to offer the Mindfulness in Motion program (MiM). Developed by Dr. Maryanna Klatt at the Ohio State University College of Medicine, the 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.

The program cost of $200 includes:

  • Guided instruction in mindfulness and movement practices
  • group discussions
  • gentle stretching and yoga
  • daily 20-minute “homework”
  • a Workbook
  • downloadable audio and video files (or DVD and CDs)
  • 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.

The Mim will only be offered to University of Minnesota employees. The cost is $200, which is fully reimbursed upon completion of seven of the eight sessions and the pre- and post-evaluation. Participants are also eligible for 50 Wellness My Way points.
