About the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program

You are unique. So are your wellness needs.

The Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program was developed by passionate health and wellness professionals eager to design a program like no other. Not only is the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program grounded in science and research, but our medical experts have dedicated their life’s work to designing solutions that result in ongoing success for every individual.


Mayo Clinic research continues to reveal the powerful impact of diet and exercise. Mayo Clinic studies have shown that movement activities throughout the day are just as important as formal exercise. Mayo Clinic researchers have also proven how resiliency tactics — the ability to adapt and respond to life’s daily challenges and adversity – affect our health. When all connected, nutrition, physical activity and resiliency encompass the power needed to make sustainable changes.


We ask a lot of questions to help us understand your needs and build a wellness plan focused on your needs. From your first phone call, and before we even meet you in person, a multidisciplinary team of experts gets to know you, your wellness goals and your expectations. The team ensures that you receive a comprehensive, individualized wellness experience, including the ongoing support needed after you return home.


Getting to know your likes, dislikes, successes, challenges and wellness experiences to this point ensures not only that your visit is enjoyable and rewarding, but also that you leave with the knowledge you need to achieve your healthy living goals. Your success is our goal. The Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program offers a number of wellness services designed to create a personalized experience for you.


The Healthy Living Plan is a comprehensive, immersive multi-day experience, tailored to your individual goals. You’ll experience the serene, healing surroundings in the newly opened Mayo Clinic Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center located in downtown Rochester, Minn., on the Mayo Clinic campus. To design the plan you receive at the end of the on-site experience, you will be involved in pre-visit preparation with members of the wellness team and an individualized on-site experience. Once you have returned home with your wellness plan in hand, you will receive ongoing follow-up either by phone, online or both – whichever is your preference.


You’ll return home with your personalized wellness plan, new skills and the knowledge you’ll need to achieve your goals. With the Healthy Living Plan, a wellness coach will follow up with you regularly, either by phone or online, for six months after your visit to support you and ensure successful implemetation of your new skills in your home environment.


As a participant in the Healthy Living Program, you automatically become a Mayo Clinic patient. As with all of our patients, your health information becomes part of your permanent, confidential Mayo Clinic medical record. Should you ever need other medical services from Mayo Clinic, your medical record becomes part of the assessment that Mayo Clinic physicians use to provide whole person care.


A variety of individual classes at the Mayo Clinic Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center supplement the multi-day Healthy Living Plan, allowing you to customize your experience with those offerings that align with your goals. Want to learn how to cook a healthy meal? Practice yoga poses in a non-intimidating environment? Learn how Pilates can tone your muscles? Develop techniques to balance the many demands on you? Classes focus on strengthening your well-being and broadening your skills in physical activity, resiliency and nutrition.
