Essentrics®

Essentrics® is full-body workout that dynamically stretches and strengthens your 650 muscles to rebalance your body.

Benefits of Essentrics®:

  • Increase flexibility, mobility, and strength

  • Strengthen bones
  • Improve speed and agility
  • Improve posture and balance
  • Unlock tight muscles and joints
  • Support injury prevention and help alleviate pain
  • Promotes body awareness

Essentrics® is a unique workout program inspired by the movements of tai chi, the strengthening theories of ballet and the healing principles of physical therapy for a strong, mobile, pain-free body.

With Essentrics® movements we are reaching, rounding, pulling up through our spine, pulling out of our joints. Why? Because our day-to-day movements, our stillness, and our activities all contribute to tight or shrinking muscles that can compress joints leading to pain and restricted mobility. Through simultaneous lengthening and strengthening we aim to decompress our joints, create muscles that are both strong and flexible, and rebuild and release our connective tissue for stability and freedom of movement.
