'Ageless Grace' program helps people through challenges of getting older
ENDERSON COUNTY, N.C. (WLOS) — A program in Henderson County is helping people facing the physical and psychological challenges of getting older.
Suzanne Tindol leads a group through "Ageless Grace," a program with certified instructors around the world -- from very large classes at senior communities to small ones.
"To move different body parts, so they can be mobile, flexible, work their brain, creativity," Tindol said of the program.
There are 21 physical moves covered in "Ageless Grace," five aspects deal with psychological skills.
"My Cerebral Palsy is hard," Kathy Hudson, a student, said. "It makes it hard to move, and so she keeps me moving. So, I like that."
The National Institutes of Health says studies are underway that show evidence exercise has a powerful effect on the human brain.
"What we're doing now is helping us work through our life and our older years," another student said.
