Ageless Grace is a simple, playful exercise program based on the science of neuroplasticity. It uses all five areas of the brain and addresses all 21 aging factors of the body. By doing unfamiliar movements, or familiar activities in a new and different way, the exercises encourage spontaneity, stimulate the brain, positively affect attitude and increase cognitive function.
