Essentrics is a dynamic weight-free strengthening program based on elements of Pilates, Ballet, Yoga and T’ai Chi. The name Essentrics stems from the concept of eccentric muscle work, which implies that there is a load on the muscle while it is being lengthened.
The Essentrics program now will be offered in Las Cruces at the Doña Ana Arts & Cultural Center by Level IV Certified Essentrics teacher, Carol Witham. Carol is one of only five fully certified Essentrics instructors in the United States, and the only Essentrics trainer living in the southwest. She studied with the originator of Essentrics, Miranda Esmonde-White in Montreal.
An Introductory Package for this new program is $40 for 6 one-hour classes and a 3-hour introductory workshop. The workshop will be Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the 6 classes will start on Tuesday, May 21 from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. and continue on Tuesdays at the same time through June 25th. Class size is limited to 15 students. Pre-registration is required for class attendance.
