Age Gracefully with Mindful Essentrics™

How’s your body feeling these days? Chances are you’re feeling tight in some places. Or maybe an injury from childhood is letting you know it never quite healed right. Perhaps you don’t know how you feel and are wanting to learn. Mindful Essentrics will help get back in touch with matters most: vibrant, pain-free living.

When we’re young, we don’t give our bodies a second thought. Which is missed opportunity, because it’s the most amazing machine on earth. As a culture, we aren’t taught how to tune into our bodies. So it seems that one day we’re hopping out of the bed and the next day we’re hobbling.

The human body is designed to move through its full range of motion every day. As adults, it’s our job to maintain our range of motion, flexibility and strength. If we don’t, they’ll go away. It’s that simple. Yet, it’s not if we haven’t learned how to do so.

Essentrics™ is a rebalancing program that helps restore proper alignment. It moves all the muscles and joints, while simultaneously lengthening and strengthening them. The only equipment you need is your body.

Get Embodied for Vibrant Health

We are expected to accept pain, fatigue and diminished energy as part of aging. Yet, we are designed to live joyfully inside a body that feels vital and alive well into our golden years. Those are more than just words to me. My name is Kerry and vibrant health is my passion. Sharing ways to age with strength and grace is what lights me up. 

For thirty years, I’ve helped people feel better in their mind and body. I entered the health field in the 90’s and never left. I’ve been an aerobics teacher, raw food chef, organic gardener, and Pilates instructor. For fifteen years, I was a licensed therapist.

Mindful Essentrics is a distillation of what I’ve learned about wellness tucked into a 60-minute, semi-private movement class. Though, it’s more than that. Mindful Essentrics is a mind/body experience that will leave you feeling stronger, yet more relaxed. You’ll walk out taller and more open. Your body will feel energized while your mind will be more at ease.

This website is full of articles on what has influenced me over the years. I hope they’re helpful for you, too.

Technology was suppose to make our lives easier, but all it’s really done is make our lives busier. We’re in the midst of a giant social experiment that our nervous system wasn’t designed to handle.

Love in Action

In August, 1968, the country was still reeling from the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the race riots that followed. A brand new children’s show out of Pittsburgh, which had gone national the previous year, took a different approach.
