Ageless Grace is a cutting-edge brain fitness program based on neuroplasticity that activates all
5 functions of the brain - analytical, strategic, kinesthetic learning, memory/recall, creativity and imagination - and simultaneously addresses all 21 physical skills needed for lifelong optimal function.
Created by Denise Medved, the program consists of 21 simple exercise Tools designed for all ages and abilities. These exercises, based on everyday movements that are natural and organic, focus on the healthy longevity of the body and mind.
The 21 Tools have creative, imaginative names, so they are easy to remember. They are simple to do at home. The movements are designed to be performed seated in a chair, yet they can be done on a bed, standing near or behind a chair, down on the floor, or standing. Almost anyone can do them, regardless of most physical conditions.
Each of the Ageless Grace Tools emphasizes different anti-aging techniques:
joint mobility spinal flexibility
right-left brain coordination bone density
kinesthetic learning cognitive function
systemic health balance (fall prevention)
fall prevention self- esteem confidence playfulness
The easy-to-learn Tools promote the ‘Three R’s” of lifelong comfort and ease – the ability to Respond, React, and Recover efficiently and safely.
The Ageless Grace Tools include right and left-brain activities and numbered sequences of physical movements in patterns that play ‘games’ with the mind. There are also mind-body directions that allow the brain to consciously choose and direct the movement of the body in either a random or specific sequence.
The 21 Tools have vivid, easy-to-remember names and include imagery, creativity, playfulness, variety, polarity, sound, expression, words and games. They are used to stimulate and release endorphins and engage the nervous system.
Kinesthetic Learning is a learning style in which learning takes place by the students carrying out physical activities, rather than listeningor watching demonstrations.
Cognitive Function is an intellectual process by which one becomes aware of, perceives, or comprehends ideas. It involves all aspects of perception, thinking, reasoning, and remembering.
