LEADER in MINDFULNESS-BASED WELLNESS PROGRAMS
Helping PARENTS / EMPLOYEES build MINDFUL, compassionate RELATIONSHIPS with themselves, their families / co-workers and their communities.
When Founder & Director, Jaclyn Long, became a mom, she fulfilled a lifelong dream. She embarked on the journey of motherhood empowered with many tools that helped make her transition smooth: positive parenting principles, partner communication tools, mindfulness meditation and a mindfulness-based gentle yoga practice. One of the things she lacked was a local circle of mama friends. She craved a community of women she could open up to, connect with and rely on. She worked hard to build community, and the nurturing relationships she formed were tremendously beneficial. She realized what most of us feel deep down in our DNA when we become mothers – we thrive when we feel a part of something greater than our small selves. We all share a vital need for social connection and support, and this need intensifies when we raise children. Jaclyn founded Mind Body Moms to make it easier for mothers with kids of ALL ages (from infants to young adults) to take better care of themselves with mind-body practices and to develop supportive, meaningful connections with other moms.
Over time, our work transformed into supporting employees at the workplace, in addition to supporting parents at home. We developed our Employee Wellness Program to bring Wellness Days to corporate teams, so we can help empower leaders with mindfulness-based stress reduction practices and effective communication tools. Not only does this help us fulfill our mission of creating a culture of wellness, it also made it possible for us to serve working parents. Further, the proceeds from our Employee Wellness Program directly benefit our programs for low-income parents, allowing us to serve all parents, regardless of socio-economic status.
