 Wellness Providers & Loved Ones

Continuum of Care staff, volunteers, caregivers, family, friends, professionals can use Meditative Movements™ during a routine day to support individuals so they feel calmer and more relaxed. This technique is especially beneficial to Dementia and Alzheimer's providers and the individuals they serve.

After teaching a Meditative Movement class to memory care residents, Jane asked Ellie how she was going to spend the rest of her day. Ellie replied that she did not have much scheduled. Carol, who was sitting next to Jane said, "Well, you know you are safe with whatever you do." It warms Ellie's heart knowing they are embodying the movement messages and feeling safe in life.

Improves Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)

Residents in Senior, Independent/Assisted Living, Memory Care and Skilled Nursing homes enjoy affirming themselves as they move. This class allows you to share this technique with your loved ones, residents, and clients in a group setting or one-on-one. An additional benefit to sharing our specialty program is that you are feeling more mentally, emotionally, and physically supported because you know how to use the movements for your own self-care throughout your day.

A 2017 University of Minnesota research concluded that Meditative Movements™ may be effective in reducing anxiety, depression, and fatigue while improving emotional and functional well-being.

Here is a possible interaction for Continuum of Care staff with residents.

As you teach the group class, tears are running down Susie's cheeks as she practices the I Am Safe Meditative Movement™. She has been abused in the past and your heart warms knowing that she is healing. You visit Susie in her room the next day and notice that her anxiety has returned. You practice the movement with her, and she feels safe again. At lunch you are finding that you need a boost and so you practice the I Am Strong Meditative Movement™ which releases your stress and energizes you. As a result, you are now ready to give fully to others because you feel stronger physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
