The idea stemmed from the lack of holistic, luxury, and inclusive wellness resources across the southeast. Doug Middleton played 6 years in the NFL and during his career he was able to learn from some of the best athletes in the world. One common theme across Doug’s career that he observed with these elite athletes was their attention to detail and their personal investment in wellness resources, with emphasis on both mind and body that led to their success on the field. Doug was also able to see that these athletes had access to some of the best medical providers across the country. Dream Yoga and Wellness was created to bring the same level of luxury wellness resources to those who may never step foot in an NFL locker room, but deserve the same level of care. Dream Yoga and Wellness will have 5 minority partners that have also played in the NFL with a combination of over 40 years of NFL experience. These partners also believe in the importance of Yoga, Mental Health, and the focus of investing in one's personal wellness. 

In 2017 Doug Middleton lost his best friend to suicide. This event became a pivotal moment in his life - leading to a passion and purpose in advocating for mental health education and resources. Doug has spoken at numerous corporations, foundations, high schools, and colleges. He has also won numerous awards including the NFL Community MVP, Appalachian State 2022 Young Alumni Recipient, amongst many others. Doug and his wife also created their foundation Dream The Impossible, which has helped over 10,000 youth over the past 5 years, connecting them to mental health resources, career and goal setting education, and financial literacy. Doug discovered yoga in 2014,and became a yoga teacher in early 2022. Doug uses his background in athletics, and his experience in mental health, to provide a unique yoga experience with a focus on both mind and body. 

Caroline Middleton, his wife, was a student athlete at Appalachian State University. She was a four year member of the softball team and earned a degree in Exercise Science with a minor in psychology. She then attended Augusta University where she earned a Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy. She is currently the senior Occupational Therapist at Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital where she works daily with the adult and geriatric population who are facing adverse circumstances following disease, trauma, or surgical operations. She has a passion for helping others which led her to this career. This career has also shown her the importance of self-care, both physically, and mentally, over the lifespan. She plans to bring her expertise in healthcare to Dream Yoga and Wellness. 

Dream Yoga and Wellness was created in the Summer of 2022 by Doug Middleton and his wife Caroline Middleton.
