EveryBODY Workout! Soul Food Cookoffs and more!

Our organization meets regularly around the vital issues that impact you and our entire community. We are not only concerned about your overall mental health, but we know that there is a tight mind, body and soul connection. Please visit our website regularly for information on diet, exercise, meditation and all of the good things that can help us all keep it together. We live in a stressful society, but it doesn't mean we have to be all stressed out.

There are ways that we can protect ourselves through the right nutrition, putting aside special time just for ourselves, with music or reading, or self empowerment! We can do this together. Come join us, watch for our upcoming great workout videos and healthy soul food recipes (and contests, yum!) Into the future, we're also going to be busy planning our quarterly events, a healthy soul food cookoff. Contact us and find out how you can get involved!
