Healthy Body

We value a healthy body. Healthy individuals practice moderation. A healthy person exercises regularly, eats a balanced diet and has good sleep habits.


We value spirit. Spirit is defined by the individual. Spirit can include a connection to something greater than yourself or the non-physical essence of a person.
