Essentrics strengthens and stretches every muscle in the body eccentrically, rebalancing the muscular structure in continuous rotational movements. It incorporates various techniques including PNF and isotonic movement while systematically working every joint in the body. The basis of the workout is a dynamic combination of strength and flexibility exercises, designed to pull apart the joints by elongating the muscles and challenging them in the lengthened position. This full-body technique works through the muscle chains, liberating and empowering the muscles, relieving them from tension in the process. While the technique is original in itself, it has been influenced by several disciplines. Essentrics draws on the flowing movements of Tai-chi creating health and balance, the strengthening theories behind ballet which create long, lean, flexible muscles and the healing principles of physiotherapy resulting in a pain free body.
It moves with music, but dance talent or a sense of rhythm is not necessary. Two left feet are more than welcome! The class ranges from amateurs to athletes, All ages and abilities welcomed.
