Hello and welcome to our 1st edition! We created the Teacher Community Corner to keep your teaching feeling fresh & fun.
Our goals are to:
– CONNECT our global teacher community

– INSPIRE each other to keep growing as teachers
We hope you enjoy your reading experience!
As many of you know, I’ve been busy working on my new book over the past year. After 25 years of developing and perfecting Essentrics, I wanted to write a book that would bring all my knowledge and experience together to redefine stretching.
I want to give people a new and improved way to get fit and stay mobile without injury. I really hope that you will love the book as much as we do and that it will help provide more exposure to Essentrics everywhere. I’m excited about the growth and future of Essentrics!

The Art of Teaching
Applying art as an inspiration for your teaching can be fun! Let’s look at transitions as an example, which help us connect one exercise to the next. Without them, a sequence feels disjointed and lacks that flowing element we all love about Essentrics. Think of a single-line drawing, like this Picasso. The pen never leaves the paper – it’s one fluid line that creates the figure. Find transitions that connect your exercises like a line drawing and your sequence will transform into one fluid movement!

Health & Wellness
What’s on your summer reading list? It can be so nice to relax with a new inspiring book. This month’s recommendation is THE JOY OF MOVEMENT – How Exercise Helps Us Find Happiness, Hope, Connection, and Courage by Kelly McGonigal. The book illustrates why movement is integral to both our happiness and humanity – not showing why we should exercise, but instead showing readers how to fall in love with movement.
