Mindfulness in Motion is an 8-week program designed by Maryanna Klatt, PhD, Ohio State University College of Medicine, for adults to learn practical strategies for stress reduction. This course has produced scientific research showing critical care nurses reduced physiological markers of stress by 40%, university faculty and staff improved sleep, bank employees reduced perceived stress, and cancer survivors and caregivers significantly improved resiliency. Mindfulness in Motion combines guided mindfulness meditation, gentle yoga stretches done from a chair, and relaxing music. Weekly classes focus on the impact of chronic stress on health, the difference between stress reactivity and response, breathing techniques to help you relax, mindful sleep, and a mindful eating practice. Course registration includes a workbook and web access to daily audio/video stress reduction practices.
