Mind Body Social has partnered with Publix Super Markets Inc. and some of the most inspirational wellness providers and influencer moms across South Florida for their second annual “Mother’s May Wellness Series,” a month-long program featuring free wellness events throughout the month of May catered to moms.

On the heels of the inaugural success from last year’s series in Doral, the 2019 edition of the Mother’s May Wellness Series expands to different cities throughout South Florida including Aventura, Boca Raton, Coral Gables, Doral, Ft. Lauderdale, Kendall, Miami Beach, Pinecrest, and Palm Beach Gardens.

The mission of the series is to honor and celebrate moms who are constantly working to improve their families and our communities by providing them with convenient tools to live a healthier life. 

“We are humbled and honored to be able to give back to moms, the true pillars of our community, through this wellness series, as well as expanding it to ten different areas in only its second year,” said Luis Sanabria, co-founder of Mind Body Social.

The series includes a variety of events giving moms an opportunity to connect with each other, their kids, and themselves through community activities that celebrate the mind and body, providing simple and fun tips to burn calories and eat healthier.

“The Mother’s May Wellness series is all about surprising and delighting the heart of our homes and community. We look forward to celebrating and giving back to moms dedicated to their families, communities, businesses and beyond,” said Nicole Krauss, Media & Community Relations Manager for Publix.

The wellness and health initiatives kick off with events between April 30th and May 2nd. Each city has a designated calendar featuring events and workshops including massive Mommy & Me Zumba classes, Pilates & Nutrition workshops, Prenatal Yoga, Meditation, and a workshop for “Quick Workouts & 5-min Snacks.”

The series also includes volunteer appreciation breakfasts at elementary schools, private executive lunches for working moms, and an online feature of local moms-developed healthy recipes based on GreenWise ingredients.

Top South Florida wellness expert moms will be featured throughout the series, sharing their best nutrition and fitness tips. All coming from different backgrounds and experience such as Oprah Magazine contributor Erika Villalobos, Army veteran Jodi Rund, Baptist Health resident nutritionist Carla Dueñas, celebrity chef and entrepreneur Joha Clavel, and many others including a young mother of quadruplets (one with special needs), a mother of four homeschoolers, certified doulas, special needs therapists, surfers, and many mompreneurs with exceptionally inspiring personal stories.

“The support of so many moms leading the activities, the support of our partner cities, and the continued support from Publix as a presenting sponsor, is a dream come true” added Mind Body Social’s co-founder Jose Antonio.
