Meditative Movements: Mind Body Exercise Program

Maryland Meditative Movement™ Teacher Training

Meditative Movements for Youth, Adults, Seniors, Assisted Living, Independent, Skilled Nursing

Meditative Movements™ is an innovative mind-body exercise program that incorporates western science with modern day philosophies and ancient wisdom. Our easy-to-follow, empowering movements can be practiced in your home, care facilities, office, school, gym and in group fitness classes. Youth, adults, and the elderly enjoy practicing the movements because they strengthen their bodies, calm their minds and energize their spirit. The movements are adaptable to anyone's physical ability.

If you are looking for a simple stress reduction activity you can give to your clients that incorporates physical movements, Meditative Movements™ may be your answer. Exercise has a profound impact on cognitive abilities and mental health. It is simply one of the best treatments we have for most psychiatric problems. Now add spoken positive affirmations and your clients have an unparalleled healthy activity that can release stress while building up their physical, mental and emotional resilience.

Teaching certificates are available for professionals who want to share this technique with their patients and clients. You can use this technique one-on-one and in group settings.
