Ageless Grace consists of 21 Simple Tools of Lifelong Comfort and Ease – activating all 5 functions of the brain and addressing 21 physical skills, or “aging factors”, necessary for lifelong optimal function. It is based on the cutting-edge science of neuroplasticity, with practice sets (or tools) that are designed to re-open the neural pathways created from the time we were born until we were about 18 years of age…. and the tools create NEW neural pathways by practicing physical and mental skills we do not already know how to execute.
The 4-hour Seminar is to gain an understanding and knowledge of how and why the 21 Tools for Lifelong Comfort and Ease work, how to practice them on your own, and how to develop a daily habit of practicing 10 minutes of the tools for on-going development of neuroplasticity. The seminar is highly recommended for those who want to be Certified Educators, since Educators will be coaching their students in the personal practice, but the seminar is not required for certification. Those who take both the seminar and certification say they feel it was important to their comfort level for teaching Ageless Grace as quickly and knowledgeably as possible. The price for the seminar is $55 if paid in advance, and $65 if paid at the door. Those registered for the certification program may attend the seminar at a discounted price of $30.
The 12.5-hour Certification is specifically designed for those who want to be a Certified Ageless Grace Educator and be able to teach group classes or private one-on-ones with clients and students. This certification goes into depth about the primary and secondary benefits of each tool, how they are practiced, music suggestions for practice and creation of playlists, safety and precautions, PR and marketing skills, types of places hiring Ageless Grace Educators and ways to approach them, basic anatomy, how to organize a class format, and a wide-variety of ideas on how to teach these spontaneous in-the-moment tools that are sparked by imagination and creativity, memory and recall, kinesthetic learning, analytical thinking and strategic planning. The cost of the program is $275, plus $75 for the training materials (The Ageless Grace Playbook, a set of three DVDs featuring all 21 Tools for Lifelong Comfort and Ease, and a set of flashcards).
“Thank you again for the most informative, beneficial and enthusiastic certification I’ve ever taken! I’ve been teaching for over 16 years, so there have been many! This weekend reignited my passion for what I do and also inspired me to change my outlook regarding some hip pain that I’ve been dealing with. At the beginning of the seminar on Friday, I was feeling sluggish & sorry for myself. By Sunday, I felt completely renewed!”
