Met some great gals at the South Mountain YMCA for the Women’s Wellness weekend and let me just say the South Mountain grounds and staff are amazing. Beautiful views and helpful team members. Just gorgeous. It was my first time to the camp grounds.
Thank you Audrey for the invite to speak! I hope to stay for the weekend next time and suggest you grab your lady friends and do the same. There are wonderful stress relieving activities(from basket weaving to zumba)
I promised the ladies I’d share some of the links and tips we touched on and this seemed the easier way to do it.
