WHAT IS IT?

The Triple M Program focusses on a mindful approach to both movement and munching (healthy eating) for any client that may not normally create quality time for their overall wellbeing.

The Triple M Program creates a ‘space’ for individuals to keep their complete attention on the experience of food choices they make, and how they adhere to regular movement practices.
All activities slow down thought processes to a moment by moment basis in a grounded space. All of the concepts are drawn from various research sources of mindfulness that state these practices can positively lead to healthier behaviours such as improved eating habits, eating choices and potentially increased awareness of posture, movement plus energy use.

Clients are also supported by our two Key facilitators and a Team of Specialists. A Dietitian, a Physical Activity & Wellbeing Practitioner, and Health Case Worker Specialists.
Together the Team focuses on how to identify, tolerate and reduce difficult, painful and frightening thoughts, feelings and sensations around eating and exercise in a supportive environment. The program encourages mindful practice to give individuals a sense of mastery over their thoughts and feelings with the aim to improve their independent approach to better self-care.

Each session involves a fundamental level of various movement sessions and cooking participation. This is complimented with stimulating mini educational seminars on movement and healthy eating choices, along with topics connected to wellbeing such as the importance of rest, meditation and ways to modify thought processes.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Triple M program can be adapted to different groups of women (and sometimes men).
