Wellness Modules and Nourish Manual

The goal of MKS+ is for participants to develop a community of support and safely engage in physical activity and learning.

The goal of Makoyoh’sokoi is to support women to:

  • Learn and carry out holistic ways of health/wellness.
  • Reflect on health and well-being.
  • Become a part of a community in which trust, respect, family, and culture are valued.
  • Explore physical activities and increase their capabilities to enjoy movement at a capacity suitable to their individual needs and ability.
  • Develop a positive relationship with food.
  • Encourage eating habits to support well-being based on flexibility and their own unique needs, instead of a plan focused mainly on weight control (using the Health at Every Size® (HAES®) approach)

All participants will be given a manual containing the NOURISH HEALTH AND WELL-BEING MODULES© that have been developed for this program in consultation with physicians, dieticians, community members, and Elders. Below is an example of what to expect!
