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.

Essentrics Class in Calgary Summer Sampler 2019

Monday and Thursday, 9:30 AM, August 8 – August 26


During August we carry on with our “Summer Sampler” series of classes, a different Essentrics workout/different music each time; to introduce you to and have you see and feel the variety of classes.

“Homework” will be presented at the end of each class: an instruction to highlight and help you build body awareness, feel more of a certain motion or exercise, and learn how to build on and improve the movement. This can then be done at home to further your goal of loosening what’s tight and improving range of motion.

Class dates are Thursday August 8, 15, 22 at 9:30 AM and Monday August 12, 19 and 26 at 9:30 AM

Cost is $100 for all six classes, or $20 for any single class.
