With a fun music playlist accompanying the routine, this equipment-free workout leaves you feeling energized, calm, pain free and healthy.

The Method

A completely original workout created in Canada, which draws on the flowing movements of tai chi, creating health and balance, the strengthening theories behind ballet which create lean & flexible muscles and the healing principles of physiotherapy which create a pain free body. Eccentric training is the focus, meaning toning the muscles and strengthening them in lengthened positions by pulling the joints themselves into elongated positions.
