What is Ageless Grace?
Ageless Grace is a fitness and wellness program created by Denise Medved. The program consists of 21 simple exercise tools designed for all ages and abilities.
Each of the Ageless Grace Tools emphasizes different anti-aging techniques:
- Joint Mobility
- Spinal Flexibility
- Right-Left Brain Coordination
- Bone Density
- Kinesthetic Learning
- Cognitive Function
- Systemic Health
- Fall Prevention
- Self Esteem
The easy-to-learn Tools promote the ‘Three R’s” of lifelong comfort and ease – the ability to Respond, React, and Recover efficiently and safely.
The Ageless Grace Tools include right and left-brain activities and numbered sequences of physical movements in patterns that play ‘games’ with the mind. There are also mind-body directions that allow the brain to consciously choose and direct the movement of the body in either a random or specific sequence.
The 21 Tools have vivid, easy-to-remember names and include imagery, creativity, playfulness, variety, polarity, sound, expression, words and games. They are used to stimulate and release endorphins and engage the nervous system.

These exercises, based on everyday movements that are natural and organic, focus on the healthy longevity of the body and mind.
The 21 Tools have creative, imaginative names, so they are easy to remember. They are simple to do at home. The movements are designed to be performed seated in a chair, yet they can be done on a bed, standing near or behind a chair, down on the floor, or standing.
Almost anyone can do them, regardless of most physical conditions.
Anti-Aging Benefits of Ageless Grace
Each of the Ageless Grace Tools emphasizes a different anti-aging technique, such as joint mobility, spinal flexibility, right-left brain coordination, kinesthetic learning, cognitive function, systemic health, balance, self-esteem, confidence and playfulness The easy-to-learn Tools promote the “three Rs” of lifelong comfort and ease—not reading, ´riting and ´arithmetic—but the ability to respond, react and recover efficiently and safely.
Intentionally nourishing the mind-body connection on a daily basis can help improve health and well-being, reduce stress, keep the brain agile and the body responsive. When body, mind, spirit and emotions are in balance, health and well-being follow. Ageless Grace offers something for each of these dimensions.
For the mind, there are right- and left-brain movement activities, numbering sequences of physical movements in patterns that play games with the mind; and there are mind-body directives that encourage the brain to consciously choose and direct the movement of the body in either a random or specific sequence.
For the emotions, there are sounds, words, expressions and “pretend” emotions that are used to inspire, stimulate, and release endorphins, while simultaneously allowing the body to release tension and tightness.
For the spirit, the movements incorporate imagery, creativity, variety, playfulness, polarities, sound and games, all performed to a wide range of music that encourages self-expression, nourishing the authentic self.
And finally, for the body, particular attention is paid to: range of motion and optimal function of the 13 major joints of the body; the 20 digits; the relationship of all the parts of the body to the whole; the redevelopment of the ability to move from the floor to standing and back again; the use of sensations such as flexibility, agility, mobility, stability and strength to restore and rejuvenate the body; the mind-body connection; the brain as stimulus for the central nervous system; and improvement of both cognitive and motor function, including balance.
Practicing the Ageless Grace Tools for just eight to ten minutes a day will help the body function with optimal efficiency, and with comfort and ease throughout your life. It’s never too late to begin Ageless Grace, and it’s never too early to start!
