Join us for an unforgettable 6-night Fitness Holiday Experience at the 5-star, all-inclusive Grand Palladium Riviera Maya Resort & Spa complex—also the filming location for Season 11 of the TV series, Classical Stretch.

This unique opportunity combines the perfect balance of fitness, health, relaxation and rejuvenation. Enjoy daily group classes, motivating lectures on a variety of health and wellness topics!
Surrounded by gorgeous white sandy beaches, pristine natural wildlife, fresh saltwater pools and a peaceful Zen spa—this weeklong retreat will help you to rebalance, reshape and renew your entire body.

Last year's event brought together our global community of Essentrics and Classical Stretch fans and instructors—all in one place—to learn and experience all that Essentrics has to offer. Getting fit, while having fun was the goal and everyone left the retreat feeling rejuvenated and motivated to continue leading a healthy and active lifestyle back at home.

This year's event promises to be even more outstanding– with brand-new lectures on a variety of topics to help you get the most out of your workouts and to give you the knowledge required to stay young, mobile and pain-free your entire life! Get ready to make new friends from all over the world.
CHECK OUT LAST YEAR'S EVENT!

— TESTIMONIALS —
"I was very fortunate to attend the first-ever Essentrics Symposium in Mexico. Wow! It was such a great trip!! Learning live is always good. The feet work and emphasis on them as our foundation was very helpful; along with the posture and alignment direction." -Sharon
"Thank you for another wonderful Essentrics/Classical Stretch retreat. The symposium showed the growth of this important work. I attended with a friend and we got a great deal out of the instruction and guidance. We were gently corrected when we were doing things wrong and everything was explained so well that I think we all learned so much."
-Carrie
"The symposium was a life changing experience. I have been doing Classical Stretch for years and loved the one on one help with form and technique. Miranda and staff were so helpful. I look forward to the next symposium and living pain free as I age backwards! " -Linda
