Every workout in this 18-episode series of Classical Stretch ® will stretch and strengthen your core, activate and elongate every muscle in your body, and loosen and lubricate your connective tissue.
Having a strong and flexible core is vital to our overall health; it has been shown to help prevent and reduce back pain, improve stability and balance, prevent injuries, and is vital to your posture and overall body shape. Your core muscles act as scaffolding surrounding your midsection; keeping your body upright, protecting your spine, and housing and protecting all of your vital organs. Having a strong and flexible core will help you to look & feel young by improving your posture and muscle tone while stabilizing and powering your movements – making it easier to do any physical activity safely and efficiently. In just 23 minutes a day, you’ll build a healthy range of motion and strength in your core, arms, shoulders, neck, hips, and legs!
Each episode will gently strengthen your core and full-body in a safe, accessible, and intelligent way – helping to improve your posture, and leaving you feeling strong, pain free, and balanced.

Note: For our new Classical Stretch® participants, the entry-level episodes are great workouts to begin with. They are intentionally designed to gently and gradually allow your body to work through all of the movements as you adjust to your new program. Always listen to your body and begin slowly and comfortably. You'll get through these episodes with ease and very soon will be ready to do any of the other workouts.
If you’re accustomed to the Essentrics® technique – don’t hesitate to also begin with these entry-level episodes. While they are slower in pace, they still offer all of the same fantastic benefits found in a standard Classical Stretch®/Essentrics® workout. Remember the importance of respecting your body's limits and moving at your own pace. These workouts can be as challenging or as mild as you make them!
