Why Movement is Key to Healthy Aging

…and how to add fitness to your routine easily & effectively

Aging can be a beautiful and rewarding process. It is important to take steps to stay healthy and active as we age. Fitness and movement can play a vital role in helping us age with grace and wellness.

There are many benefits to being physically active as we age. Exercise can help us maintain our strength, flexibility, and balance. It can also help reduce our risk of chronic diseases and can improve our mood, sleep quality, and overall sense of well-being.

The first in the 2023 Series of Mancos Wellness Talks, “Why Movement is Key to Healthy Aging” focuses on fitness and the benefits to our bodies, minds, and lifestyle as we age through the decades.

Humans are meant to move. All of our systems are designed to move and only function properly when we do. Kate Voiles, a Certified Health and Lifestyle Coach, will show us how the mind is the first step on the road to wellness and how it is interrelated with movement.

The goal is to create a healthier, happier mind, brain, and body in a simple and effective way. Kate will give us easy ways to live a naturally healthy life without feeling deprived. She will also show us how to combine movement with stress-relieving techniques and mindset shifts to help create routines for healthy habits and lifestyle. Whether you’re an Olympic athlete or a couch potato, you’ll benefit from these combined daily practices!

The Mancos Wellness Talks are hosted by Cloud Goddess Enterprises and Mancos Public Library.

As always, The Mancos Wellness Talks are free and open to the public!


Kate Voiles

Certified Health and Lifestyle Coach
Owner, Aspire Life Wellness

How do health coaches work with clients? In the gym, meet in person or online to help keep their client aware and on track of their desired healthy lifestyle and coach them through their mental blocks.

Why a health coach? Kate was diagnosed with SSCD, with a CT scan in Jan of 2019, a condition where holes are found throughout the inner ear encompassing bones. It wreaks havoc with your vestibular system, creates sound sensitivity, bodily sounds are heard, and creates overwhelming stress on the brain.

When looking at a half million worth of brain surgeries, out of state, with a year recovery time, with no guarantees, at 54, she set out to look at natural ways of dealing with this condition. This brought her to researching and learning- then receiving her certification as a health and lifestyle coach.

Kate continues to learn all she can, and is currently in a certified physical fitness personal trainer program.
