CLASSICAL STRETCH by ESSENTRICS
Celebrating Classical Stretch’s 10th season with over 300 episodes on American Public Television
Classical Stretch by Essentrics,
American Public Televison longest running fitness TV show
The Classical Stretch television series is created, produced and hosted by Miranda Esmonde-White. The #1 fitness show on PBS for over 15 years—Classical Stretch has been helping people of all ages and fitness levels rebalance their bodies, increase mobility and keep joints healthy and pain-free. Based on the intelligent fitness technique EssentricsTM—each 30-minute episode of Classical Stretch features a full-body workout with dynamic strengthening and stretching exercises: all-standing, all-floor or all-barre.
Participants will notice an immediate increase in flexibility and a release of tension in their muscles after each episode–improving their posture and range of motion. Stress is released and aches and pains are soothed through the gradual unlocking of the entire body.
Classical Stretch is distributed by American Public Television and can be viewed locally on public television stations across the nation. Check www.pbs.org for times.
Note: All seasons of Classical Stretch can be purchased on DVD in our store.
Miranda Esmonde-White is one of America’s greatest advocates and educators of healthy aging. She is best known for her PBS fitness show, Classical Stretch, which has been aired since 1999 and is rated the #1 fitness show on the network, and for creating Essentrics the technique which Classical Stretch is based upon. She has filmed over 300 episodes of Classical Stretch workouts, many of them available on DVD. Following her career as a professional Ballerina, Miranda developed Essentrics, which led to her becoming the flexibility trainer and consultant to numerous professional and Olympic athletes and celebrities.
Miranda’s first book, Aging Backwards, will revolutionize the way we understand the role fitness plays in slowing down the aging process while keeping our bodies young, attractive, strong and healthy. Based in Montreal, Miranda spends her time continuing to develop the technique, writing and training new instructors. She travels extensively giving lectures, weeklong Teacher Training sessions and retreats.
We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their generosity and hospitality over the last several years—without their support, the filming of Classical Stretch would not be possible. The beautiful backgrounds in each episode are due to the picturesque scenery of the gorgeous resorts, hotels and tourist attractions that we’ve had the privilege to film at.
Thank you for helping us maintain the quality and charm of Classical Stretch at a standard that is much appreciated by our longtime viewers!
