Explore something new with Susan E. Mead. Essentrics is a mix of yoga, tai chi and ballet.

In a nutshell The Essentrics™ workout is based on eccentric strengthening which stretches the muscles then strengthens them in the elongated position creating a lean toned body. Essentrics™ is intended to make the waist thinner, the stomach flatter, the legs leaner and the bum toned, leaving the entire body more flexible and agile.
