Did I say your work is BRILLIANT!! Thank you so much for all the work you put into creating Ageless Grace.
I am in awe and every time I tell someone about it I am brought back to "knowing" that this is so good for
Jeanne Carter, Ageless Grace Educator & Trainer, and former Special Education Director for Public Schools
Ageless Grace for KIDZ creates a positive learning environment in which participants can use both their
mind and body in fun and interactive exercises. Smiles and laughter were seen and heard all around while we
learned the ?tools.? Ageless Grace provided the participants of the program with tools and resources they can
use at school and at home when standing may not be an option. Thank you to Ageless Grace for KIDZ for
helping to incorporate a new activity into the program and for helping to keep kids active.
Haley Justus, Kid Power Program Coordinator
The Ageless Grace program was everything I expected and even more! After day one I already thought:
I'm going home, to apply all of this very soon. Ageless Grace is fun, bodywork in a chair
(and good for the abdominals too I found out!) and it feels really good. Denise also taught a seminar on
marketing which was really useful to me. On the trainer: Denise has a really 'light' way of teaching the materials.
She's fun and smiling all the time. And she was very patient with all the questions we poured out on her.
Marion Pellekaan, Ageless Grace® Educator
I absolutely love Ageless Grace. Thursday night I was in so much pain.
Sciatica, thigh pain and sore hips. I have not been in pain since I started doing Ageless Grace.
It is wonderful and is so "inclusive", fun and never boring. Also love the 10 minutes a day!
Marcia Albanese, Ageless Grace® Educator
After 3 days of Ageless Grace ( two days with socks and the last day barefoot), I can already feel improvement with foot pain on the soles of my feet. I am so encouraged!!!!
Sharon Kotzin Frolick Ageless Grace® Educator
I'm now 11 days into the famous 21-day challenge - and so grateful! The 21 tools are a blast.
Ten minutes is over almost immediately, and I feel awake, energized, and ready to take on the world.
I almost don't need the coffee!
I began enthusing about AG almost immediately and - unlike any other program that I may love - I
was able to describe it immediately: "21 Simple Tools for Lifelong Comfort and Ease!"
While it was originally designed for us baby boomers, "it's never too late to begin, and it's never too
early to start!" It's all about developing and maintaining healthy neural pathways, so we retain the ability
of "the 3 R's of AG - react, respond and recover!"
I am very pleased with our time together: the (seminar and certification) process, the package, the people, and certainly the outcomes. Thank you!

My diagnosis is emphysema (COPD). No I was not a smoker, but I lived in secondhand smoke all my life.
I am on oxygen 24/7. I think what you are doing is wonderful. I am going to do this (Ageless Grace®)
and see if I can make a change for the better, for my health, for my grandkids, for my husband, and for myself.
Over the weekend, my grandkids and I did it together. They had a blast and so did I. They mostly laughed
at me because I, of course, hammed it up with the animals and sounds. It is going to help. It already has!
One of my friends was a rehabilitation nurse -- we watched your first DVD together and she was so impressed
with it! And she was amazed at the workout your program gives to people using all the core muscles...I applaud
you for your program and your zeal!

After experiencing Ageless Grace® in the four hour seminar, I thought my
fibromyalgia would be over-the-top painful. Just the opposite! I felt
relaxed and pain free and I slept soundly that evening. I actually sat on
the edge of my bed, repeatedly opening and closing my hands, amazed at my
range of motion and the absence of pain. I am convinced that Ageless Grace®
is the perfect program for the millions who suffer with chronic and limiting
pain like me. Thank you Denise! Your thorough research in the development
of this program will help so many regain their youth and mobility.
Patricia Scott, Nia Black Belt Instructor and Ageless Grace® Educator
This is just to express my gratitude for the Ageless Grace® class held recently at Bay Village.
It was a joy! The teacher, Ms. Mary Masi, was delightful, encouraging, full of variety and colorful imagery,
with toe-tapping music. Not only did we have a wonderful, stressless workout, imagining all sorts of trees from
which to pluck grapefruits and cherries, but also adventured forward on bicycle trips and ballet gigs. Best of all,
after a happy hour of dancing, there was no pain - just more relaxed flexibility. It was a joy. We hope Ms. Masi
will come back to Bay Village.
I wore the computer from Weight Watchers the whole time. It measures all of my movements. When I returned home
I was amazed, Positively amazed... at the activity points racked up those 2 days !!! I swim and do Pilates in the water
and etc. It was the same. Who da thought ?
I liked coming to the classes. The instructor was good on how she taught the class.
The class helped me with all of my shoulder, hip, knee and hand problems.
You get so energized and you feel better afterwards.
I thoroughly enjoy and feel energized by the class.
It's been very helpful in regaining strength after a stroke.
I really enjoyed the class. It was a positive experience that helped me with my arthritis.
I am still a bit awe-struck & humbled...Such care, compassion, honor & responsibility went into this potentially life-improving, life-extending program lovingly conceived, developed & graciously shared by Denise Medved. How fortunate we are for her vision, her dedication
& her generosity. Thank you, Denise.

I have never seen such a sparkle in my sister's eye since she has learned of Ageless Grace®. This interest of hers means so much to me. She is physically challenged and is now becoming a bit more motivated to move. Thank you Denise for creating such a fun 21 tool practice!
Denise leaves no stone unturned with Ageless Grace®.
It's a true wellness program. She has created a system
that not only produces physical results, but encourages
life-long healthy habits. And as always, there is a whimsical
quality to Denise's teaching that takes the "work"
out of workout. Being more concerned with quality of
life than with "feeling the burn," Denise really does put
the "FUN" in FUNctional Fitness!

My experience with Ageless Grace® is basically three
things: One, I feel so much better and that is the most
important thing! Second, I learn a lot. Denise makes it
educational so you become smarter about your own
body. And third, Denise gives you permission not to have
to "get it right." "Just do something sort of like this "
and it works!
Ron Redmon, Executive Coach
I enjoyed my first Ageless Grace® class tonight after a
long day at the office. I entered tired and stressed and
left energized with my sense of humor fully flexed. It's

"I can hardly believe I am now a Certified Ageless Grace®
Educator. What a
fantastic weekend with fantastic women and Denise leading
us all, mentoring,
coaching, teaching, sharing.. and after 20 plus hrs of
exercise during the
last 3 days, I feel GREAT.. I sang all the way home from
Sarasota to Dunedin
FL singing silly songs and making sillier
faces. I am going on to day 4 of
the challenge.. can't wait to wake up and make animal
sounds and play the

I just wanted to write and tell you HOW MUCH I am enjoying
Ageless Grace®. I do it everyday, with my mom and we both feel
such a difference in our bodies. On the days that I don't
"Ageless Grace"®, I have less energy and feel less active.
On the days that I do, I want to move more, drink less coffee and
have a bigger smile than usual :) I plan on taking the entire training
soon so that I can teach this wonderful program to others.
Thank you for being such a positive and influencing person :)
Joypodders, this past weekend i had the pleasure to attend the Ageless Grace® certification training by Denise Medved at Core El Centro with a room-full of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois Nia kin and others.
Thank you Denise for bringing Ageless Grace® to the Midwest. Core El Centro and downtown Milwaukee rocks! Thank you Bonnie, Barb, and the Wisconsin community. Sharing a bit about my experience as a new Certified Educator.
Since my brain re-wiring of two years ago; sensation, movement, and action are a preferred method of communicative reality for me. Choice. We are moving into time of embodiment and the heart-mind; relationship-with.
So with that i offer-- if you have an opportunity to experience an Ageless Grace® session don't miss it! This is out-of-the-box! (i say this as one who has both taught conventional chair exercise; and consciously repatterned my own ailing body from a chair when it was grateful to sit and move in a chair rather than lay in bed consciously willing life breath by breath.)
Beyond participating in a class-- if this course of training speaks to you, i cannot recommend it enough. I've studied a variety of conscious movement forms and have taken trainings with masters of movement-- fabulous Nia with Debbie, Carlos, Winalee, as well as extended workshops and trainings with conscious movers and shakers Gabrielle Roth, Wilbert Alix, Diego Pinon, and others.
High expectations were met and went way beyond! Denise Medved's Ageless Grace® training is packed, clean, and wonderFULL. FUN and living lively! Impeccable, authentic, abundant. The whole package, including supplemental materials, is extraordinary.
Two years ago i made a decision to live to 110 -- farming and dancing on the land until, what, 100? Seriously. I'm 57 and last summer the significantly younger man i had envisioned since i was in my late 30s danced into my life and is joining me in this conscious aging journey -- how cool is that? We eat local and authentic food and dance together.
I dance wildly every day to hip-hop music, run on the treadmill, do yoga and butoh. Ageless Grace® is different! In my personal practice it fills a void and it's fun-- i want fun, my psyche needs fun and laughter -- doesn't everyone's?
My Ageless Grace® practice is only days old. As i move deeper in practice authenticity i will have more to share.
Over these months the Felines taught me, "All Is Play." YES! What i know is this-- Denise's Ageless Grace® is opportunity for serious lifestyle shift evolving from conscious play. I can't wait to sense what happens next!
