Wellness at Eastman: “Nutrition for the Performing Artist”

January 6, 2022

Wellness at Eastman is a monthly seminar series from Eastman Performing Arts Medicine (EPAM) featuring artists and clinicians speaking to physical and mental wellness for performing artists.

Inspired by the Healthy Conservatoires movement in Europe, presentation topics this year include: the benefits of warming up and cooling down; peak performance on stage, nutrition’s effect on performing; incorporating mindfulness in your everyday music practice; mental health in music schools; and caring for your voice. 

The next Wellness at Eastman seminar will be on January 12, 2022 at 6 p.m.: Nutrition for the Performing Artist with Yimy Rodriguez, RDN. Food is more than fuel for your body to get through class. Dial in on what your body needs for auditions, performances, and to maintain excellent health year-round.

Yimy Queipo Rodriguez, RDN is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, University of Rochester Medical Center and is a former professional minor league baseball player for the LA Dodgers. Yimy enjoys helping athletes improve their nutrition, specifically addressing nutritional challenges to performance, such as food allergies, iron-deficiencies, bone mineral and gastrointestinal disturbances, and iron-deficiency. His main goal is to help athletes develop the necessary tools to confidently make the best choice when it comes to fueling their bodies.

More information is available on the Wellness at Eastman site.

Wellness at Eastman seminars are held monthly in Howard Hanson Hall (on the fourth floor of the Eastman School of Music main building) and on zoom.
