Moving Back Into Balance Immersion Testimonials 

“I’m feeling the strength and integrity in my spine. My back has improved in a really nice way!”

Isaac, designer, business owner

“ I am waking up feeling really good in my body instead of the usual creaks and pinches I used to experience getting out of bed in the morning. Feeling grateful and good in my body.”

“I’m sleeping like a baby for the first time in over a decade and my lower back pain is dissolving by the day.”

– Steve Smith, author 70 years old:

“Am sleeping better, eating healthier, getting more exercise and gaining mental clarity, and generally happier moods” 

“Each time I do EDGU, I’m getting better sleep and I feel a lot more energized in the morning.”

Danielle Bankes, bodyworker

Yogis have a saying, “Your age is not determined by years but by the health of your spine.” EDGU is the simplest, easiest, and most effective method I’ve found to maintain a flexible and vigorous spine anywhere and anytime. For a truly inspired EDGU experience, there are few who have the embodied expression and passion of Vitalist.

Jonathan Collier, Consultant, Author


“I recently attended a training with Jeffrey and Swirl. They are great instructors who created a fun, and easy to follow experience. I felt tended to and taken care of during the training which is very important doing this type of inner work. They did a great job of holding the space in a way that myself and the other participants felt a real sense of community. As we all moved through the EDGU sequence together we bonded through our inner journeys and moving through old blocks and into self-love. EDGU is not only about the many physical benefits you receive from the movements, it’s also about self-connection and self-love. I’m so grateful for this training and look forward to more EDGU experiences held by the fantastic Vitalist Team!!”

Alexandra Frishman, Small Business Owner, Farmer:


“Just what the doctor ordered! This class was perfect and exactly what I have been looking to find. I would highly recommend his class if you have any stiffness or reduced flexibility.“

Dayna Rekieta, super mom

Working with Jeffrey & Swirl helped me see the rest of the picture and gave me the power to stand up in my beauty, with my gifts like never before. My husband and kids felt like they were watching a hero in a movie. Thanks a million!”

“The work you facilitated at the Esalen workshop I attended was incredibly powerful and has stuck with me and truly informed my life. I’ve gone back and done the values evaluation several times now, and it has really helped me align and recalibrate when I’m feeling disconnected, confused, or altogether lost. Thank you, again.”
