Sersano (“healthy-self” in Spanish) was established on the belief that health goes beyond the absence of disease in the body, and that true well-being incorporates the emotional, mental and physical aspects of the whole person. Unlike the many wellness practices today that only address one aspect of health, mindfulness practice is whole-person strength training that drives quicker, more impressive results.
A lifelong learner, Sersano Founder Dr. Gumm took a break from the corporate world in 2012 to complete her doctorate in Education with a focus on Organizational Change. During this time, she was able to delve deeply into yoga and meditation, which shaped her doctoral research on the impacts of stress on individuals and organizations. She designed and tested the first Breathe, Move, Pause program, which focuses on helping individuals develop better coping and stress management skills. When participants reported a 30% or greater reduction in their stress level within just a few weeks, Dr. Gumm understood the transformative power of becoming even just a little more mindful.
Since this discovery, Sersano has been dedicated to helping individuals and teams develop a simple mindfulness practice they can use to release the tensions and stressors of everyday situations, both at work and at home.
