Author:


 Cheryl Ilov has always been drawn to health and wellness, the biological sciences, and movement arts, including classical ballet. She began her professional life as a respiratory therapist, and after seventeen years of practice, she returned to school and earned her master's degree in physical therapy in 1996.

Cheryl discovered The Pilates Method in 1983, and once she began working as a physical therapist, she made the connection that Pilates presented a wonderful tool to help people of all ages recover from injuries and illnesses. She immediately began applying the principles of Pilates to her patients to improve their quality of life and level of function. In 1999, she founded Ilov Integrated Arts, specializing in Pilates-based rehabilitation. Cheryl had her first experience with The Feldenkrais Method® in 2000.

She began the required four-year training program to become a Feldenkrais practitioner in February 2006 and graduated in November 2009. During Cheryl's remarkable journey of learning, healing, and self-discovery, she also discovered a martial art called Ninpo Tai Jutsu. She fell in love with the art and the training as well as the powerful connection between Feldenkrais and martial arts and their incredible healing power.

Cheryl has dedicated her life to helping others achieve the best quality of life possible. Having personally experienced the anxiety of dealing with chronic pain, stress, and fatigue, she also understands the frustration of feeling out of control, gaining weight, and struggling to find a healthy, effective way to recover after devastating injuries. Cheryl has integrated her education, experience, and expertise to develop a program for people, regardless of their age or current level of function. It is her firm belief that anyone can be fit, flexible, healthy, vibrant, and energetic in their fifties, sixties, seventies, and beyond.



My Review:

Forever Fit and Flexible : Feeling Fabulous at Fifty and Beyond by Cheryl L. Ilov
Was interested in reading this book because after my husbands heart attach we cracked down and got healthy and am always willing to learn and try new things to keep that way.
Book starts out with the authors own journey to achieving her goals and how at different stages of her life she realized what was happening.
Principles of the plan are discussed in detail and broken up into chapters. There are even exercises that are very well not only thought out but descriptions of how to do them and realize how you feel.
Very useful information and so easy to keep track of in a journal. Balance one I really appreciated the most as I use my trekking poles when we hike as I feel being blind I am at a loss as to balance sometimes.
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
