Exclusively Essentrics™ Classes in Calgary

Essentrics™ draws from ballet, Tai Chi, and physiotherapy. Rather than holding poses it is about movements - stretching while staying in motion. Try something new! What is Essentrics™?

What is Essentrics?

Is Essentrics™ similar to Yoga? No—Essentrics™ is very different from Yoga. The Essentrics™ technique uses “eccentric” muscle contractions to simultaneously strengthen and stretch every muscle in the body. An Essentrics™ workout consists of dynamic movement—which means that you’ll never stop moving during the workout. Although we don’t focus on meditation or spirituality, Essentrics™ is still a complementary workout to Yoga, as it helps to rebalance the full body, increase flexibility and mobility.

National Health and Fitness Day – Free Essentrics Class @ Dalhousie Community Centre
Jun 1 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

What are you doing on June 1st?

Join us on National Health and Fitness Day and Get Up, Get Out, and Get Active!

Marcia Culham leading Essentics class for Essentics instructors in Edmonton May 2019
To mark this year’s National Health and Fitness Day, an initiative to make Canada the Fittest Nation on Earth, Vital 1 Fitness is hosting a free Essentrics class, a full-body no impact workout with dynamic strengthening and stretching exercises.

Each workout focuses on increasing mobility, flexibility and strength, relieving tension in muscles, easing chronic aches, pains and joint stiffness, and improving posture. And it’s fun!

If you’re having fun, it’s not exercise.

After a 10 minute introduction, I will instruct you through a 45-minute lovely no impact Essentrics class. Feel the energizing and therapeutic benefits of the fluid, rotational movements that promote strength and flexibility.

Be challenged, or do it in a more gentle relaxed manner. Either way you will feel so much better at the end.

Come as you are. All you need to bring is an exercise mat and water bottle.

Space is limited so please register at https://vital1.ca/nhfd or by calling me at 403-208-3307. Preregistration is required to hold your spot. Let’s fill the gym!!

This class is being held at the:
