Yoga and Nutrition for Healthy Aging

Join nutrition educator and consultant Mimi Kalamian, EdM, MS, CNS, and sustainable farmer and yoga instructor Pam Watts, RYT,  for a 4-part series exploring nutrition and yoga to build and maintain health.

This series will help you develop ways to enhance your well-being through diet and movement.  Each session will include a yoga practice, presentation and open discussion.  Please come with curiosity!

Who wouldn’t want to age gracefully? Yet so much of how we interact with our social, emotional and physical environments may undermine our desire to maintain good health over the lifespan. At each session, we’ll connect the dots between nutrition science and cellular health as it relates to aging. Together, we’ll develop a personalized toolbox of lifestyle improvements that can enhance and embrace this process. Come with your questions!
