Stories of Local Inspiration for Living Your Best Life

“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

- Mark Twain -

As a magazine and website devoted to living your best life as you age, we decided to celebrate Twain’s concept by sharing stories of local inspiration from Capital Region residents over 50 who are living their best lives. Some are entrepreneurs. Others have started new careers in their second or third acts. Each in their own unique way is making a difference and enhancing the life we all enjoy in the Capital Region.

If you know someone who would make a good profile, send us an email at We’d love to hear more about what people are doing as they continue to create and recreate themselves.

Casey Bernstein

Casey Bernstein, 67 of Slingerlands, is a strong believer in the power of movement. Having worked as a nurse for the first part of her career and as a life-long swimmer and former long-distance runner, she realized that movement—any type of movement—has the potential for healing. Sharing that knowledge and helping others discover the potential for movement’s power in their lives is one reason Bernstein opened the Center for Nia and Yoga and is the first in our stories of local inspiration.
