How music helps stretching
There’s no drama here. Music will help you stretch.
The playlist for an Essentrics Fitness Program is one that does not emphasize grand sweeping phrases or emotional stories in the songs. The music is not another layer on top of the stretch and strengthening exercise; instead, the selected music is chosen to inspire and motivate you to stretch further and deeper and to keep you motivated while in class.
You’ll hear sounds from multi-cultural, easy jazz, country, contemporary to light classical. For a one-hour Essentrics workout, you’ll enjoy a wide variety of music to help you connect with your body, move with the flow of Essentrics so you can relax, stretch and elongate your muscles. Read More

This isn’t like getting excited about going to your favourite restaurant, instead this is taking your time to look at your food, be grateful for the food on your plate and tasting every morsel.
