Food That Fits with Dietitian Alice Ma

Eating a variety of nutritious foods can be helpful when it comes to managing mood, energy, illness, and other conditions. However, it can sometimes be difficult to eat balanced meals when you have allergies, intolerances, or other dietary restrictions. In this session, we will go over the basics of how to build a nutritious meal or snack, then touch on how to adjust some of these meals to make them appropriate for some alternative diets.

Adaptive Yoga

This yoga class will focus on adaptable flow sequences and floor poses that energize the body, increase awareness in both mind and body, and leave everyone feeling rejuvenated. Chairs will be available. 

Adaptive Yoga adapts the instruction and practice of yoga to each body in a safe and comfortable way. Traditional poses are tailored to the physical body, rather than fitting and forcing the body into a particular pose and shape. Along with breathing, props such as blankets, chairs, yoga straps and blocks help meet the unique needs of individuals with different abilities.
