University Health Plans Moving Online: My Yoga Online Unveils New Wellness Program











My Yoga Online University Wellness


Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) September 16, 2009

Just in time for back-to-school, My Yoga Online, the global mind-body health and wellness resource, is proud to announce the launch of The University Program. Simon Fraser University, The University of Iowa, McMaster University, and York University are already on-board. A buzz is generating across the North American educational system, as more universities follow the advent of preventative healthcare taking precedence across Canada and the US by signing on to the My Yoga Online University Wellness Initiative.

“What’s so great about this program,” says My Yoga Director of Business Development Michelle Trantina, “is that it addresses the key student and staff health concerns really effectively and efficiently. Time-strapped students and staff get instant access to health and wellness videos that address their specific concerns. They get healthier, on their schedule, on their time, in the way that suits them best.” A 2008 Report on Post-Secondary Institutions as Healthy Settings, by the Canadian Council on Learning, revealed that the top three student health concerns are: mental health, including anxiety and depression, sleep deprivation, and stress. Addictions and poor nutrition were also noted. BusinessWeek Magazine reported in 2008 that business schools at the University of Chicago, MIT, Harvard and Northwestern had all instituted yoga initiatives.

In response to these concerns, My Yoga Online’s University Program offers customized video programming that universities can access on their own websites. Students and staff can use the programming from home, at school, or anywhere with internet access. Each tailored program offers related health and wellness videos by top yoga, Pilates, and meditation instructors, plus nutritional experts, and more.

For more information visit My Yoga Online’s University Program.

Michelle Burtnyk, a recent Health Promotion Specialist at SFU, has this to say: “The videos have been extremely popular. According to the number of hits to the page, it’s one of our most popular on-line resources. We felt it was important to offer these videos, in addition to other resources and services, in an effort to decrease back pain and stress in the entire SFU community.”

My Yoga Online is a global resource for mind-body health and wellness and holistic living. They offer hundreds of yoga, Pilates, and meditation videos and expert information on workplace wellness, green living, expert health advice, a Q&A forum with professionals, and more. My Yoga provides health and wellness content and distribution to major airlines, universities, and media providers such as Tivo, York University, the University of Iowa, and Air Canada.

Leslie Nolen, Author


Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 26, 2011

The instantly useful Health and Wellness Insider’s Guide to Durable Trends, Fleeting Fads & Innovative Ideas provides a health trends roadmap for every wellness sector: fitness, nutrition, yoga and mind-body trends, conventional, complementary and alternative healthcare trends, obesity and diabetes management, and longevity and aging trends. It illuminates the most significant opportunities and challenges facing health and wellness businesses, practitioners and investors, says author Leslie Nolen, president of The Radial Group.

Readers describe the report as:

“profoundly accurate”

“a crystal ball for the future of health and wellness, with the solid research and analysis to back it up”

“a wellness roadmap full of resources and information, with its finger on the pulse”

“a wealth of great, practical information”

Available worldwide in paperback, Kindle or PDF versions, this unique wellness trends guide spans the entire health and wellness spectrum, from fitness, nutrition and yoga to healthcare, diabetes, obesity and aging.

Unlike expensive and dry statistical reports, Nolen says the Health and Wellness Insider’s Guide is “Designed to be instantly actionable for health and wellness executives, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and investors plus media and marketing professionals”:

Special features include:

1. A detailed trend checklist of crucial developments in fitness, nutrition, mind-body practices, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), healthcare and medicine, obesity and diabetes, and longevity and aging

2. A four-page Buzzword List which gives practitioners instant explanations of the latest terminology and jargon

3. Discussion of eight emerging convergence trends like “healthy skepticism” and “Lifestyle Change 2.0” which are shaping the future for all health and wellness businesses and practitioners

4. Three proprietary models – the Health & Wellness Continuum, Dimensions of Health & Wellness and Health & Wellness Toolbox – which provide a new foundation for understanding the health and wellness interest as a whole

Then, each individual trend chapter leads with a “Big Picture” summary followed by detailed strategic insights and discussion for the eight sectors of health and wellness:

1. Consumer health and wellness trends

2. Fitness, exercise and physical activity

3. Nutrition, food and healthful eating

4. Yoga and other mind-body practices

5. Complementary & alternative medicine

6. Conventional medicine & healthcare

7. Obesity & diabetes

8. Longevity, aging & older adults

Nolen concludes with a discussion of seven guiding principles that will shape health and wellness futures for 2012 and beyond.
