Mindfulness in Motion

Stress Reduction Opportunity from the Center for Spirituality & Healing

Mindfulness in Motion (MiM)  is a research-based program offering resiliency tools that can be implemented in the workplace to reduce daily stress. Participants will learn mindful awareness principles that are 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 MiM is offered to employees covered by the UPlan Medical Program at the Twin Cities and Duluth campuses. The cost is $200, which 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. 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.
