I picked up co-founder, Miranda Esmonde-White’s book ‘Aging Backwards’ a few years ago. I realized that I needed a bit of a life overhaul when it came to my exercise regimen and thought I would give it another chance a few weeks ago.
The human body is designed to remain pain-free, energetic and healthy throughout its lifespan. With ‘Aging Backwards’—gone are the days when we had to accept the negative consequences of aging as inevitable and a “normal” part of getting older. In reality, we should never have to surrender helplessly to chronic pain, hip and knee replacements, loss of energy and mobility, poor posture, weight gain—regardless of our chronological years.
Most of us are unaware that the process of aging is triggered by cell death. In ‘Aging Backwards’, Miranda explains how you can slow down and reverse the speed in which your cells die—showing scientifically, how anyone can stay feeling young and vibrant their entire life!
Everyone, no matter their age—can benefit from the breakthrough knowledge and advice provided in Aging Backwards. It’s never too late to take control of your body and never let aging get in your way!
In her book, Miranda discusses:
◦How correcting our posture can make us look like we’ve lost 10 pounds and 10 years in just 10 seconds
◦How to prevent muscle atrophy and cell death—and jumpstart weight loss—in only 30 minutes a day
◦How to live in a pain-free body no matter what your age
◦How we can reverse the physical changes that occur to our bones, muscles, and skin as we get older
◦How we can maintain our weight, flexibility, strength, attractiveness, and good health in middle age and well into our golden years

I have also been dabbling in Miranda Esmonde-White’s ‘Classical Stretch’ television series. It is the #1 fitness show on Public Television — ‘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 Essentrics—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.
In the last few weeks, I’ve noticed an immediate increase in flexibility and the release of tension in my 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.
In the weeks to come I’ll explore more episodes that are working for me and that perhaps you can try out when you have a moment.
Pick up the super cheerful pricing for online streaming through the Essentrics website. It has become my go to every night after a long shift. My body has been thanking me daily for the practice.
