2016 Healthy Body Healthy Mind Event

More than 150 women joined Kadima on April 17 for the 2016 Healthy Body Healthy Mind Event at The Townsend in Birmingham. Participants sought balance with Citizen Yoga Founder Kacee Must through a yoga session and inspirational talk on mental health and strategies to cope with stress.  “Healthy Body Health Mind is a cornerstone event in Kadima’s Education and Outreach Department,” said Jean Nemenzik, clinical director for Kadima. “It was with great excitement we welcomed the spring with mindfulness and a chance to stretch both our minds and bodies toward a healthy new season.”
