Theoretically I know what to do now, but I think this could potentially help really cement it for me. Thanks!
It sounds perfect for you!

Thank you Annie for opening up this discussion. Itís timely for me at the moment to do essentrics and I should reread mirandaís Books. Iíve learned that form is critical but I havenít spent nearly as much time on essentrics form as I have T-Tapp.

Thanks also to Izzy for commenting on frequency and Demeris for T-tapp wisdom. It helps me a lot to hear what youíre doing.

I want to add a couple of more thoughts that came to me the past few days about the differences/similarities between T-Tapp and Classical Stretch/Essentrics:

I believe both of them activate the lymph system, but I can feel my lymph moving when I do T-Tapp. There's something about each of her moves, done in good form, that forces the lymph to course through my system.

I believe both of them can help build muscle, but there's something about the isometric contractions and the careful, controlled movements in T-Tapp that seems more efficient for muscle building and maintaining muscle.

Both of them rehab my back, but only T-Tapp can rehab my knees.

I'm deeply grateful I knew T-Tapp before I discovered Classical Stretch because T-Tapp has taught me everything I know about good form and good posture, which I apply to CS and to every other workout I do, including housework, gardening or walking my dog.

I feel stronger after I do a T-Tapp workout. I move more freely after I do a CS/Essentrics workout.

I stand taller after I do either workout.

Demeris, thanks for the contrast/comparison of T-Tapp and CS -- I found it interesting and informative.

NOt to sound like a broken record, but I too didn't "get" CS a few years ago-now I do won every morning or my day does not go right.

Can't imagine not doing a workout everyday.

Using stream, but have PBS episodes on dvr and dvds for backup when streaming is funky.


Will need to get book from the library.

I also don't quite understand the whole CS/ES philosophy. I used to like some of the workouts but haven't gotten into them recently. I just reserved the book at the library. Maybe reading the book will get me interested in doing the workouts again. The most recent ones I have are the body sculpting and body toning ones.

Annie, thank you for relating your story with us! Love to hear of people getting such good results with either Classical Stretch/Essentrics or T-Tapp. I'm so grateful for the work of Miranda, Teresa, and also Callan. And for VF!
