“I started my day with an energizing Yoga class, followed by an organic green smoothie and then an acupuncture session in the afternoon.
Am I on vacation? No, this is my job. This is MINDBODY!”
“When I came to MINDBODY I knew it was health and wellness oriented, but I did not expect the support I would receive when it came to quitting smoking. Not only was MINDBODY here to support me, but they provided me reimbursement for my smoking cessation as well. The team here at MINDBODY has also been fantastic in supporting me, from leaving me notes on my desk, to buying me gum and hard candies during the worst of it. I have been a nonsmoker for almost 600 days!”
