I have always been an active person playing a variety of sports and participating in many different types of fitness classes. As I grew a little older, I noticed some of these activities were taking a toll on my joints. In 2015, after watching a show on PBS explaining the benefits of Essentrics®, I ordered some DVDs and was instantly impressed with how the movements in Essentrics® are designed to work with your body to create both flexibility and strength and rebalance the muscles around the joints. In 2017 I began the Essentrics® teacher training program and I have been teaching classes since 2018. I love how practising Essentrics® allows me to enjoy my other activities, such as golfing, hiking, and playing with grandchildren – without fear of pain. My certifications include Level 3 Essentrics® , SPRA Group Fitness, Basic Yoga Asanas and First Aid/CPR.
