I'm 55 and still haven't hit menopause. In fact, not even close.

Nothing changes for me unless I tackle the dreaded 4 letter word that starts with D.

I've always exercised in the afternoon or evening.

I do teach a 9 am class several days a week. That is the earliest I can work out! NOT a morning person.

True, there can be a flow element with Vinyasa. The trademark sequences in Essentrics are rooted in Tai Chi and very flowy, and the theory is rebalancing by working all the muscles.

Not Pam, but Essentrics is movement (dynamic) stretching and yoga is holding poses.

You probably need to just choose the workout you're inclined to do.

I'd be curious why the dr suggested yoga. Is it a "mindfulness" or stress reduction sort of recommendation? Flexibility training? Would using your CS/Essentrics workouts fit the bill?

When I was in Montreal for teacher training in 2019, the talk was they would offer the CS seasons on dvd "for a while". I doubt they will make any dvds outside of that.

IDK about PBS offering...

I didn't like it at first either. There's a learning curve, it's more work than you expect, and yes, Miranda isn't the greatest instructor. The method has evolved considerably in the last few...

Hi! I think if you're going to do weights, perhaps use Essentrics as your recovery and rebalancing workout. IMHO, I feel like Essentrics is lacking in upper body strength work. You could do a...

What have you stuck with?

I was just thinking today how long I've been doing Essentrics. It was probably 2005 that I bought my first dvds. I've been teaching since 2015. It's the longest I've stuck with anything.
