New FM/FB group members can be added until the 3rd week of group cycle so you can still enroll in a group after the group start date. We also offer individual FM/FB sessions if the group sessions won’t fit your schedule or needs.

We are having a FM/FB interest session on Mon 8/26/19 from 7 – 8:15pm at our Mindful Bodies office. You do not need an eventbrite ticket to attend but it is helpful for us to know how many people to expect so you have the option of purchasing a free ticket. At the interest session, FM/FB facilitators Shawnta & Quanda will give an overview of the 12 weeks of FM/FB and will do intake sessions onsite and will also schedule intake sessions for a later time.
