Meditative Movements (TM): Mind Body Exercise Program

 Empowered to Create Change Keynote

   Ellie inspires individuals to trust their journey in life. She knows how it feels to be broken by life's challenges. When she was 23 years old, she was divorced and raising three small children on her own while making $80 a week as "Ellie from the deli." Her body was unhealthy; her mind was chaotic and her spiritual being was weighed down with fear, self-pity, anger, and worthlessness.

   She discovered the power of affirmations and combined them with various exercise movements. The result is the empowering Meditative Movement™ technique. Ellie graduated from the College of St. Catherine in 1992 and has taught thousands of individuals how to listen to their mind and body so they can be healthier, happier and feel whole.

   Ellie shares how to exercise your mind, your body, and your spiritual beings in concert so that you can experience life as a confident, loving, and energized individual.

   Get ready to be inspired and believe in your own ability to create change.

First Ellie skillfully guided us through some simple, fun mindfulness activities reminding us of our interconnectedness. She then facilitated an impactful discussion enabling us to successfully identity key strategic meaningful outcomes. From this concerted effort, we were able to develop a cohesive draft strategic plan. Michael Browne, Director of Office of Police Conduct Review

Ellie's presentation was a great kick start to our long day of meetings. First, she educated us on her mind, body and spirit exercise program and then we had the opportunity to follow along. I found her program helped us break down barriers and we felt more relaxed with each other. I'd recommend having Ellie share her program with any group that wants to feel more connected and wants to have fun doing it. Linda Walton, Executive Director, Chanhassen Area Chamber of Commerce

"I visited one of Ellie's hour-long programs and watched her transition a tired group of social workers –– after lunch and a full morning of content, no less –– from tired, to interested, to energized. Ellie's message, that Creating Positive Energy in the Workplace can create happier, healthier and more productive workplaces, is both practical and powerful!" Robin Getman, CSP (professional speaker, trainer and humorist)
