I would like to pass on to everyone that I am really enjoying the current body sculpt and toning challenge and also the wellness one. The live classes are fun and I want everyone to know that I am having fun with them and appreciate all the hard work that you do to make these great workouts.
I want to say a big thanks to you all for the recent 30-day Wellness Challenge. The challenge with its morning and evening routines started just as I was beginning to feel defeated by the uncertainties of Covid life. The routines gave a healthy structure to my day and combined with a long walk in the mornings have made me feel better about our circumscribed lives. I’ve been taking that early morning walk for a couple of hours, combining my noon lunch hour with the morning Essentrics routine, and finishing the day with the evening one. Just what I needed.
Thanks too for the new challenge that started today and for the live sessions. It’s fun to see familiar faces from Essentrics online in a live format. I’ve worked with Lauren Mayhew and Severina Gates here in MA, and they prepared me well for taking advantage of your terrific streaming platform.
I am 62 and decided to do my first Essentrics 30-Day Wellness challenge during the Covid-19 isolation. My husband even joined for some. Everyday was something to look forward to. It got me out of my winter slump as it prepared my body for spring cleaning and gardening. Some days I would work far too long in the garden but would make myself do the evening workout then, in minutes, my whole body felt as if had I just restored all my muscles. Essentrics doesn’t feel like a typical workout as it doesn’t take a lot of energy, but gives energy for the day and the evening workouts relax and have even made me sleep better.
The workouts ranged in time with different instructors and different focuses like posture, mobility, or pain relief to name just a few and they were easily followed and certainly never boring. What is great is the overall well-being I have felt. I do more through out my day and actually look forward to working out day and night. You can even tap on a workout you particularly like and keep a list to go back to. Essentrics is different than any other workout, fun and something I can continue no matter what age I am. Thank you!
I did the 30-Day Health Challenge and I loved it! It forced me to do workouts that I considered too difficult for me, but it was a success! You allowed me to surpass myself, to evolve, and to motivate me to exercise every day with our lovely Miranda. With the Classical Stretch program, I am now able to walk without pain due to osteoarthritis, climb stairs (around thirty steps) without gasping, because my muscles rebuilt themselves and work more efficiently. Physical inactivity and overweight are really plagues that kill us slowly but surely! For several months, I consulted a nutritionist, and then I discovered Miranda last fall. Since then, I went from a pant size “5x” to a “2x” and I am on my way to achieve my goal of a healthy weight and a fit body “Classical Stretch” style! I am infinitely grateful to you for being in my life, and for helping me to feel better in my body, and to age “fit” and in health (I can assure you that I am already ready for another challenge!) With hope to meet one day my adorable mentor, Miranda, my faithful companion in my daily efforts to become a more active woman.

I am a holistic nutritionist and a bioenergetics practitioner. However, even with all my knowledge of the human body and my ability to ask questions and receive answers regarding how it is functioning, I have been unable to lose post-menopausal weight gain. After all this time, I think I am zeroing in on the root cause and I am beginning to feel my body letting go. The Essentrics work out accompanied by Miranda’s little pearls of wisdom helped me understand more about my body. I have more energy (I learned that it is best for me to do the exercises when I am most tired during the day…) and a greater range of motion. I feel as though specific channels in my body have opened up, allowing detoxification to take place in areas of my body that could not be previously reached. I am grateful for the 30-day challenge and pray that I will continue to make these exercises a priority day to day.
I’ve been a Classical Stretch follower for several years now. The beauty of this 30-day challenge was that it wasn’t a challenge. It was part of my daily routine. I do have some knee and joint issues, but they don’t stop me at all. I walk faster, longer. I can run upstairs. Combined with scheduled fitness and tai chi classes, I don’t feel as though I am aging. The best part is that I don’t feel confined to “easy” routines. I can and do use many of the “advanced” Essentrics DVDs as well as Classical Stretch adapting them when necessary to my situation. Thanks Miranda and Sahra. I feel that I know you and that you care about me.
I am very pleased a) I am exercising more often b) I feel a lot more flexible c) In a recent photo my mid-section looked shapelier and less muffin top like d) The IT band stretches have helped my knee greatly and I can do that every day e) I appreciate the variety of doing various workouts rather than sequentially. That’s it in a nutshell. Thank you!
Thank you so much for the 30 day challenge. I am 70 years old and I have seen amazing changes in my arms, abs, waist and legs. I have been exercising for years using weights and treadmill and I have not seen the changes and the increased strength like I have with Essentrics 30 day challenge. I love Miranda and I was so impressed with Sahra and I am a new fan of hers… I will continue the challenge because for me it has become a way of life.
Thank you so much.
I was looking for a workout that I could do despite having a sore lower back. I found Essentrics watching PBS. I was intrigued so I ordered the online streaming. I’ve really been enjoying the variety. It feels so good to do the all over body toning and stretching workouts. My back is better and I’m feeling stronger and toned. It’s great after sitting at a desk all day to move my spine. I feel like the tai chi pliés are helping my knees and I love the stretches for my lower back. I used to be a Zumba instructor but now in my early 50s my body is enjoying the Essentrics workouts.
What a great program! I’m a personal trainer and recommended these to a friend to help her get started on her fitness journey. I did the challenge with her and loved my own results. I’ve been doing the Vintage workout for years and love Essentrics TV! New workouts without having to purchase a whole season! Love Sahra’s workouts so much. I feel stronger, firmer and generally love the way my body has transformed in a month. Thank you!
Thanks so much for the 30-day Health Challenge! Besides all the diversity of shaping and toning, it is a good way to get to know all the different episodes on Essentrics TV. Thumbs up!
Ciao from Amsterdam,
I just signed up for the Essentrics TV and just love it! Easy to use and so well priced! I have worked out all my life and now that I am in my 60’s, I do not want so much wear and tear and cannot always get to a class due to travel. I have never done an exercise that targets everything and feels so good! I am so impressed with the content on ETV! I can take this everywhere with me! I am looking forward to better posture, and keeping a well-toned body. I was starting to feel so old and these exercises make me feel like I am in my 30’s again! Thank you for sharing your knowledge! I am going to tell everyone! Best Regards
My 22-year-old daughter and I did the regular workouts together for the 30-day-challenge. We are going to start again and try to do another 30 days. We love how the daily exercise makes feel. We own many of the DVDs, but have been streaming Essentrics TV for the challenge. The streaming is great to help us get through the Minnesota winter!
Please tell Miranda that I love her, love her work. I did not think she could get any better, then Season 11 came along and it is brilliant, love it. Miranda’s explanations make so much sense to me. I only discovered Classical Stretch this year (I live in Australia) and I have been streaming Essentrics TV for about 5 months now. It is a great concept and I do at least one class every day without fail. I am hyper-mobile, small boned and thin . My posture and strength are now much improved. I am developing muscle in my back and in my calves too and I am standing taller. Just wonderful. I am very grateful for the work of Miranda and Sahra and they are an important part of my life. Thank you.
I wanted to give you some feedback on your 30 day challenge from January 2016 – it was absolutely wonderful. My sister and I both did it and told several people how great it was. I think by you knowing the videos and setting it up our program for us we are assured of getting a very balanced type of monthly workout. I found it much more enjoyable than looking at them all and trying to decide which session to do.
I have been doing my best to do a workout daily, and sometimes twice a day. I love the fact that I have a monthly membership to online streaming and I have access to a variety of videos. I particularly like the relaxation videos in the evening because they help me relax, and I sleep better. I also like the fact that I have access to 15-minute videos and I can either do 1 or I can combine them. I love your program. Thank you!
I have thoroughly enjoyed this last 30 day challenge and feel so much stronger, flexible and lighter- I want to keep it going- I hope many others have enjoyed the challenge as much as I have.
Thank you Miranda!
e been a subscriber for a number of months now to ETV and have been doing an Essentrics workout almost daily. I participated in the Health Challenge and loved it. It got me to try other types of workouts and made my workouts more well-rounded (as I work to be LESS well-rounded! lol). I’ve noticed a difference in my body. Especially my legs and my butt. I’m 58 years old and have the mid drift area issue as my biggest challenge. I’ve always been physically active and find the belly bulge a real issue. Thank and you and please continue all that you do! I’m looking forward to the next challenge.
I’ve been a “Miranda” fan for 5 years now! I love Essentrics TV (streaming) and the freedom it gives me to access my workout on my laptop anywhere I go. My husband has had two back surgeries and we think Classical Stretch has hugely benefitted him. He travels frequently with this job and does a Classical Stretch episode in his hotel room. This workout has changed my life! After doing Classical Stretch all winter I am more than ready to garden in the Spring. Love it!
I just wanted to send a quick note and say thank you so much for essentrics TV online! I am only 30 years old but have thyroid issues and because of that traditional exercise can wipe me out for days on end after only 30 minutes of cardio. I picked up your system about a month ago and admittedly, I have not been consistent until recently but in only a few short days have seen drastic improvement in my movement, energy, and overall feeling of health! I am so appreciative for the access to many different types of exercises. As a mom with two small children the 25 to 30 minute workouts are absolutely perfect because they are just long enough to do some effective work but also allow me to fit it in around the kids schedule. My chiropractor has also been praising you as well my adjustments are so much better because of classical stretch.
Thank you so much!”
