Ageless Grace: Brain/Body Fitness Part II

10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Brookfield Public Library
Meeting Room
Presented by Marti Hannon 

Each of the 21 Ageless Grace Tools emphasizes different anti-aging techniques.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.
