Low Impact

My Essentrics workout with Candace was great. I was doubtful that I could get through an hour, but it was really low impact, and the stretches were not difficult. It worked my muscles, and I felt great the next day.                I'd recommend this for anyone who gets discouraged easily with workouts.

I can’t tell you how grateful I am that you invited me to join your Essentrics class! I haven’t done any real exercises in years, and it felt great to move and stretch after so long. I’m looking forward to more of your classes because I can see where they will definitely benefit me. My neck and trapezius muscles already feel less tight. Following along was easy, especially with your verbal pictures of how we should be performing the movements. Thanks again!

New Paradigm

Whether we know it or not acknowledge it or not choose it or not we are in a new Paradigm..it is not coming it is here.The old Paradigm of separation..walls..constriction...protection...are slowly disintegrating and rising like Ash in a forgotten fire. In many ways Essentrics is a metaphor for this new Earth...strength through opening...elegant purposeful movement that allows the body's wisdom to fuel its direction..and a unique and intuitive understanding of the power inherent in harmony. Essentrics is a gift of this new Paradigm and Candace is a focused and gentle guide...a bridge..to a practice and idea whose time has come. It is no coincidence...Highly recommended.

Patient Teacher

I tried the Essentrics with Candace. It helps to build core strength and reduce stress. It is a good workout and can be done by people in different levels of fitness. I do pilates and it has similarities. Candace is a good and patient teacher.

I look forward to Essentrics with Candace. The class provides a great stretch and works all of the muscles in the body. I no longer have neck and shoulder pain, and my posture has improved so much that I have grown a half inch. My flexibility has never been better!
