Wellness Training Program for Agencies and Community Centers

Mindful Yoga Chicago provides nationwide training programs for facilitators, coaches, therapists, and other professions working in hospitals, agencies, and community centers. Led by Melissa Leger, E-RYT® 200, RYT® 500, YACEP®, MBSR Level 1 Instructor, training programs are customized to meet the needs of the organization. With over 18 years in training experience at the corporate and municipality level, Melissa noticed in the health and wellness industry, specifically for mind-body techniques, there was a shortage of training available that addressed the needs of organizations to adequately train professionals using adult learning methods. Additionally, most programs were not tailored to meet the needs of special populations who may have never been exposed to yoga or meditation or had different physical or mental abilities.

Mindful Yoga Chicago bridges the gap by creating professionally customized programming that includes mind-body techniques and application in professional and formalized training formats. We create curriculums, instructor guides, student manuals, training schedules, as well as program development to help create standardized programs for your team.
