I have been asked to have some more sessions. I am starting a new class on Tuesday evening at the Dalhousie Community Centre. Woohoo!

We started of 2019 saying it is time to start doing something fun for yourself. You deserve it. I like to say, “if you’re having fun, it’s not exercise” and you will have fun in one of my Essentrics classes. Join the movement for those 50+ who want to challenge themselves in their level of fitness, or move in a relaxed manner. Either way you will feel so much better at the end of my class.

We’ll enjoy playlists of music that “our generation” knows and likes. You will be guided through a 55-minute no impact, gentle and yet challenging Vital 1 Fitness class. All you need to bring is an exercise mat and an exercise band.

Whether you have been inactive, are recovering from an injury, or are fit and want to improve your flexibility and balance, come as you are to this safe and supportive group. Be energized and feel the therapeutic benefits of the fluid, rotational movements that promote strength and flexibility.essentrics-class-marcia-culham-essentrics-level-4-honours-certified-instructor-vital-1-fitness-720x540-Winter

This is how I am fulfilling my wish; to help and encourage those 50+ like myself to age well through Essentrics.

Essentrics was developed by Miranda Esmonde-White, the creator of “Classical Stretch” on PBS, and the bestselling author of “Aging Backwards” and “Forever Painless”.

About the author: Marcia

As a healthy 63 year old, my wish for all of us is to age well by moving more. Living an active lifestyle helps you remain agile. Helping you to be an “active ager” and striving to feel better in your body is why is started VITAL 1 FITNESS. Now in my 43rd year of nursing, having worked in many areas from the Emergency department to an outpatient cancer treatment center, I have broadened my aspirations by teaching Essentrics™ classes. It is incredibly gratifying to hear the improvements each participant has experienced in flexibility, pain relief and wellbeing. Some of my certifications and awards include: Certified Essentrics™ Instructor (Level 4 Honours); Myeloma Canada Nurse of the Year, 2015; DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses nominee, 2014 and 2015; Nursing Advisory Board Panelist, 2011, 2013 and 2014; Research Nurse of the Year Tom Baker Cancer Center, 2006.
