Age Better with Mindful Essentrics

How do you feel? No matter how old you are, you likely have tension somewhere in your body. Stress is part of modern living and it has to manifest somewhere. Maybe a childhood “owie” is letting you know it never healed right. Or, perhaps you want to live a more embodied existence.

When we’re young, we don’t give our bodies a second thought. Which is too bad for us, because it’s the most amazing, self-healing, living machine on earth. We are taught to focus on what our bodies look like rather than tune in to how they feel. So when the body starts complaining with little aches and pains, we tend to brush it aside.

The key to vital longevity is movement. 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. To make movement easy and effortless, muscles must be as strong as they are flexible.

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

The pharmaceutical industry has taught us to accept pain and diminished energy as a part of life. 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’ve been a Thai yoga therapist, raw food chef, organic gardener, and Pilates instructor. For fifteen years, I was a licensed therapist in private practice.

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 and more relaxed. You’ll walk out taller and more open. Your body will feel energized. At the same time, your mind will be more aware and at ease.

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

Our muscles are encased in a web of tissue that weaves in and around our body called fascia. Like a silk stocking, it holds us together. We must move our bodies every day to maintain elasticity and range of motion. The good news is it doesn’t take long. You can access all the muscles and joints in the body in about 20 minutes.
