Meet Emilie

Actor | Singer | Brain Training Specialist
Creator of The Resilient Actor

Emilie Leyes is a trained actor & singer, as well as the co-founder of MindBodyMoney LLC. With her extensive knowledge in acting, stress, and brain science, she developed the Resilient Actor brain training program to help actors break down personal barriers so they can pursue their creative endeavors with calm strength, certainty, and love. 

After experiencing significant, seemingly untreatable health problems from childhood through college, she found the solution to her illness in brain training and she was able to eradicate her symptoms in a matter of weeks. After discovering the power of neuroplasticity, she began her studies in brain science to create a program for actors and creatives to train their brains to overcome challenges and transform their lives. She is currently on track to receive a Master's degree and PhD in Mind-Body Medicine and resilience practices to further her research of the 'actor brain.'

In this interactive online program, you will get...

01

12+ hours of video content

On Saturdays, you will receive a one-hour video that sets you up for success for the week. Each week you will explore a new way to understand what's happening in your creative brain (no science background needed!).

Then, on Mondays, you'll receive a one-hour video that explores a session of practice, where you'll take that information and apply it in fun, life-changing brain training exercises.

There is an additional, 30 minute orientation module released five days before the start of the program.

See full schedule below!

Brain Training Journal

You'll receive a beautiful spiral bound brain training journal (mailed to your door), that will guide you on your path to resilience.
