WMC Body Movers

WMC strives to support the health and well being of families. We believe that healthy families create healthy communities. Movement is an important part of a healthy lifestyle – and we know how difficult it can be to carve out time and finances for fitness when you’re a mom. This group plans free yoga & fitness opportunites in SETX, as well as the online resources that you love. This is also a place to celebrate healthy, positive body image and share inspiration. Keep it loving, keep it positive.
