Feb. 10, 2016, 4:29 PM

The Vanderbilt Dayani Center for Health and Wellness offers “JumpStart: Becoming and Staying Motivated for Healthy Movement” for adults. This six-week group program is facilitated by a health psychologist and designed to provide participants with knowledge, techniques and group support aimed at helping them become and stay motivated for regular physical activity, such as walking, dance, yoga, strength training and cardio exercise.

One of the six sessions, led by an exercise specialist, will provide guidance on how to get started with appropriate physical activity.

The group facilitators are Colin Armstrong, Ph.D., departments of Psychiatry and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation; and Katie Mingledorff, B.S., ACSM CPT, Dayani exercise specialist.

The group will meet Wednesdays from noon to 1:30 p.m. starting Feb. 24 at the Dayani Center.

With an appropriate medical diagnosis (e.g., heart disease, COPD, diabetes) and our completed medical referral form, this program is billable to most medical insurance plans. Contact the Dayani Center for a copy of the referral form.

Please note: This workshop is not a training workshop for health care professionals wishing to learn how to motivate their patients. Such training is available through Vanderbilt’s Health Coaching Certificate program.

For more information about JumpStart and to receive a copy of the medical referral form, contact the Dayani Center at (615) 322-4751.
