Ellie Peterson, Meditative Movements™ founder, knows how it feels to be broken by life's challenges. When she was 23 years old, she was divorced and raising three children on her own while making $80 a week as "Ellie from the deli." Her body was unhealthy; her mind was chaotic, and her spiritual being was weighed down with fear, self-pity, anger, and worthlessness. Life was overwhelming. At this low point, she created the Meditative Movements™ technique as a way to heal her body, mind and being. Her recovery journey and personal practices have spanned more than 40 years. A 2017 University of Minnesota research study found that this program reduces anxiety, depression, and fatigue, while improving emotional and functional well-being for person’s with chronic health issues. She graduated from the College of St. Catherine in 1992 and has taught thousands how to harness their own personal power in a new way. www.meditativemovements.com.
