Miranda Esmonde-White is one of America's greatest advocates and educators on healthy aging. She is best known for her PBS fitness show Classical Stretch, which has been on the air since 1999. A former ballerina, she designed the Essentrics technique, which uses low-intensity strength and stretch exercises to relieve pain, prevent injury, and slenderize the body. Esmonde-White works with professional and Olympic athletes and celebrities, and teaches classes to thousands of students worldwide each year.
"Public TV stations and their viewers have responded enthusiastically to Miranda's workouts for more than a decade; and from a personal standpoint I have experienced and enjoyed the anti-aging benefits of her program, too!" -- Chris Funkhouser, VP, American Public Television "I started doing Miranda's workouts ten years ago, and now I recommend them to ALL of my patients, even for those with joint problems. It is safe, easy, convenient, and complete ... the total package!" -- Dr. Beth Barnett, Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician "Miranda Esmonde-White shows readers how we age at a cellular level, and what we can do to slow down and reverse this process. Her pioneering exercise program can help anyone, at any level, maintain a youthful body as we inevitably enter into later stages of life." -- Claudio Cuello, MD, Professor and Former Chair of Pharmacology, McGill University
