History of Essentrics


Miranda  Esmonde-White, a Canadian  former professional ballet dancer created the globally-recognized and science-based fitness technique, Essentrics® in 1997, becoming a flexibility trainer to numerous high performance athletes and celebrities. 


Essentrics® is a dynamic  stretch workout  for all fitness levels  designed  to engage  all  650 muscles and 360 joints. While the technique is original in itself, it has been influenced by several disciplines. ESSENTRICS® draws on the following:

  • Flowing movements of tai-chi, which create health and balance

  • Strengthening theories of classical ballet, which create long, lean flexible muscles

  • Healing principles of physiotherapy, which create a pain free body

What is Essentrics?

Essentrics® dynamically combines strengthening and stretching to develop a strong, toned body with the complete ability of moving each joint and muscle freely and with full range of motion. 

The goal of the Essentrics Workout is to create a balanced body such that the strength in your muscles doesn’t inhibit your movement, and your mobility is enhanced by your strength. 

​Essentrics® is on a mission to establish the true meaning of what it is to be fit at every age and stage of your life, with a special focus on age prevention and reversal through movement. We believe that fitness should not be measured with an index, in miles, in muscle mass or in speed. Rather, it should be measured in one’s ability to move freely, live actively and without pain.
