Upcoming wellness programs


Nutritarian get together

The first Wednesday of every month, 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Health Professions (building 66), room 229

Are you curious about the nutritional interventions promoted in a recent study sponsored by NAU professor Jay Sutliffe, PhD and Joel Fuhrman, MD, which produced significant reduction in weight, cholesterol, and blood pressure measurements as well an increased quality of life measures among NAU employee participants?

 Please join us for an informal get together with our local supporters and enthusiasts and find out how you may benefit from eating a more plant based, nutrient dense diet. Enjoy a variety of guest speakers, cooking demos, camaraderie and inspiration.

For more information, contact Shawna.Bowen@nau.edu. Reservations not required; just show up. All are welcome; this program is open to the entire community.

In these lunch hour classes, we will incorporate breath as well as basic and relaxing yoga poses to promote an overall feeling of calm and wellness. We will begin classes with a breathing practice, then we will gently move through basic poses while focusing on alignment and breath awareness in the present moment, and we will end with relaxing postures. Beginners to more experienced practitioners are welcome as options for variations of poses will be given. Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a yoga mat. There are a few mats available inside the exercise suite for those who need one. Attending these classes provides points toward your 2016 HealthyU credit.
