I’ve been doing various workouts at home and when I work with some of my older Classical Stretch DVDs, I’m reminded why I love this program.
I started doing Essentrics® while watching the PBS Television program Classical Stretch. I learned that the exercise program was started by former ballet dancer and fitness instructor Miranda Esmonde White, who hosts the program.
Essentrics®: The Esmonde Technique® was developed in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and is now taught world-wide. After taking a few classes with instructors in Toronto (Ontario) and in Montreal, I wanted to teach this program in my hometown, Napanee, Ontario. I received my certification in the Essentrics® Aging Backwards® program in December 2019.
Essentrics® has been life-changing for me, especially the Aging Backwards® program.
Scroll down to read testimonials from some of my class participants about how Essentrics® has helped them. To read about how Essentrics® has changed my life visit my blog.
I’ve also written a guest blog post for Lori Wolf Heffner on how Essentrics® fits with my writing business. As my friend and fellow Essentrics® instructor, Sheri Burge, said in one her classes “Essentrics makes everything better.”
I know I am healthier and stronger. When people compliment me and ask what I’m doing to look and feel better I tell them “Essentrics Aging Backwards”
Keep moving. Keep smiling. Stay safe.
