Essentrics new transMiranda Esmonde-White is the creator of the Essentrics® Technique, which she demonstrates on her PBS TV series, Classical Stretch. This #1 rated fitness show is in its eighteenth season in America. Esmonde-White’s latest book, Aging Backwards: Fast Track, is an easy-to-follow formula that makes age reversal faster, smarter, and more effective.

  • Essentrics® Stretch (Classical Stretch as seen on PBS): a dynamic and deep, full-body stretch that works through all the joints and releases tight muscles. It draws on the movements inspired by the scientific research of physical therapy, the flowing moves of tai chi, and the strengthening theories behind ballet. 

  • Gentle Stretch: a slower, relaxed, full-body stretch workout that focuses on increasing mobility, flexibility, and relieving chronic aches, pains, and joint stiffness. Routines have the option of being done seated or with the support of a chair. There will be no floor work in this class. Ideal for those who are beginning to exercise after a long sedentary period.
