milmindbody began as a vision between a group of military spouses who felt creative support, mind body initiatives and a self care oriented community was missing within the military spouse community. Sure, there are FRGs and mission driven spouse groups where connection is the mission. With milmindbody, community is the natural byproduct- self care is the mission. milmindbody is a program designed to harness connection and empowered purpose through yoga, mindfulness and stress management modalities.
We give military spouses permission to lean into their own self care so they can show up as the best, most nourished version of themselves to their families by offering regular yoga classes, workshops, pop up events and an online training program that offers job sustainability no matter where you PCS to. We build community with one another on the yoga mat and off through consistent participation in self care, stress management and well being.
CREATING A COMMUNITY OF CONNECTION, SELF CARE AND ALL THINGS RESILIENT.
About The Foundations Course
MelMarie's Yoga Foundation Course is a 50 hour training course blended with online modules, mentorship and integration to equip and certify you as a stress management specialist. The program is paired between one on one mentorship (facilitated by military spouse graduates of the training program) and online webinars with specialized curriculum tailored to the military lifestyle. Spouses will receive a printable training manual to follow along with the program and will have opportunities to teach yoga, meditation, mindfulness and creative workshops to the military community through USO facilities and centers once graduated- along with other additional training opportunities to orient spouses into a sustainable career in wellness, health, and stress management consulting.
