You will experience untapped strength and vitality in this level. You will learn that our powerful method of strengthening is not detrimental to flexibility. Our low-impact, equipment-free approach uses the body’s own weight as the force of resistance and is safe and effective for all fitness levels.
Upon completion of the first three levels, you will have become familiar with the power of the Essentrics techniques. What you have learned so far is the multitude of benefits that Essentrics can deliver: it can help to heal, increase flexibility, strengthen muscles, relieve pain, help reverse chronic conditions and reshape the body. In this final level you will learn how and why Essentrics strengthens the muscles as well as the importance of strength and what impact it has on our bodies on a cellular level.
The expected time to complete Level 4 is 3-9 months.
Please note we require you to complete each level within a one year timeframe as you work towards becoming a Certified Level 4 Instructor.* This timeline keeps our instructors on track for success within each level as well as in their classes.
The second annual requirement involves learning two new Pre-Choreographed Workouts per year. This will help you expand your class repertoire and offer diversity to your students. You may choose to learn as many as you like during the year, with two being the minimum.
* If extenuating circumstances happen to arise, we are happy to work with you to find the best solution to help you move forward; this may include putting your teaching license on hold and resuming when you are ready.
