Food As Medicine: An Informative Experience and Fundraiser for Kari Nietert

Event Details

Nutrition is an underlying theme for many health concerns we experience today. To address the underlying causes, we must consider the influence our diet has on our wellbeing.

“Food as Medicine” looks at the latest research about how the American diet contributes to chronic disease and provides actionable information for a mindful and healthy lifestyle.


All funds generated will go to a Go Fund Me account to help someone very special to Dimitra Yoga – Kari Nietert. Many in our community know and love Kari for her incredible talent as a yoga teacher, massage therapist and beautiful energy. 

Kari was severely injured in a climbing accident on Saturday, January 9th when she fell 35 feet off of a rock wall. In that moment, her life was altered. Her road to recovery is slated as a long path, full of twisting roads, immense physical challenges, and mental endurance.

  • There are several ticket price options – choose the one that is right for you and the amount you’d like to donate to Kari’s Go Fund Me.
  • This event – offered IRL (In Real Life) and Virtually (via Zoom) is open to the general public. If you cannot attend in person at 1pm, choose the Virtual option and you will receive an email after the session with a link to the Zoom recording, which is good for 24 hours.
  • If you know you can’t attend and just want to donate for Kari, please choose the Virtual option (and thank you!).
  • Space is limited to 20 IRL (In Real Life), due to COVID-19 recommendations of 50% capacity at this time. You must pre-register and wear a mask at all times inside the studio.
  • Whether you choose to attend IRL or Virtually, bring your curiosity, questions and paper/pen for notes.
