Lyn Watson, Retired Occupational Therapist – Smiling Portrait

Ageless Grace has been a very good program for me on two levels!

Firstly as an Occupational Therapist (retired) I can appreciate the science behind it. What a great way to loosen every joint and strengthen the core while stimulating neural pathways that actually prevent many of the effects of aging! I believe in the validity of every ‘tool’ which aims at total wellbeing with a diversity of exercises to maintain interest.

In particular combining imagery and problem solving with movement, stimulates the right and the left brain and is the closest thing I know to promoting adult ‘sensory integration’! For me personally this is a fun opportunity to address my own weaknesses and retain aerobic fitness. So much more interesting than gym!… keeping a weekly schedule and supplementing with my own home program is achievable. I have noticed improved balance and coordination…important for me to avoid tripping!…and while my husband has his Sudoko and Bridge for mental fitness….I am doing it my way with Ageless Grace.

Thank You!!
