*** This class takes place at the Van Vliet Complex, about a 5 minute week from the Education Building ***
Essentrics is an exercise program that draws on the flowing movements of Tai Chi which create health and balance, the strengthening theories of ballet which create long, lean flexible muscles and the healing principles of science-based movement which create a pain free body.
In this course we will discuss specifically how this “feel good workout” is designed to reverse the effects of aging so that proper weight, flexibility, mobility, strength and good health can be maintained in middle age and well into our golden years. We will discover less stiffness, with relief from aches and pains, proper posture and better balance.
