About Cecilia


Essentrics with Cecilia In NDG PhotoFEEL GOOD. LOOK GOOD.

I am a firm believer in being active, that foods can help heal many of our modern ailments and always include aromatherapy with my beauty regime. Since 2004 I’ve practiced Ashtanga yoga on Saint Catherine Street, Montreal. I also enjoy power walking, hitting the gym and weight training. But, over the last couple of years nothing really excited me and as a result, I stopped being active and gained weight! Not happy…

One day, I saw the Classical Stretch show on PBS television and started to practice this fitness program. Very quickly, I discovered that Essentrics Fitness Program was a perfect blend of low-impact, steady flow movement (like Pilates & Tai Chi) while strengthening and active stretching the entire body that made me feel balanced and energized after each class. I also found that Essentrics improved my circulation, which is a great help for the Lymphedema on my right foot.

Today, I’m excited to share this with you that I’ll be soon taking my live exam for Essentrics Fitness Program this May 2018! Essentrics is unique, it strengthens and stretches every muscle in the body eccentrically, dynamically, in continuous rotational movements. It incorporates various techniques from Tai-Chi, ballet, PNF and isotonic, you will never get bored!

Also, don’t forget to visit the blog as I share what’s cooking in my kitchen, healthy food trends and latest research finding on nutrient-packed whole foods that nourish your health.


In my spare time, I provide digital marketing and communication services. I have a B.Comm, Marketing from Concordia University with 15 years of marketing and communications expertise working in pharmaceutical, natural skin care, software and retail industries. I’ve had the pleasure of gaining strong knowledge in communications and brand development.

While working at A Natural Perspective, as their Sales and Marketing Manager, I had the opportunity to learn about essential oils and aromatherapy along with skin issues, like acne, eczema and rosacea. Aromatherapy is a topic that still interests me and I’ll write about on the blog from time to time. Despite this very rewarding and challenging work, I wanted to be able to combine my growing interest in the field of wellness, holistic lifestyle, fitness, personal growth and community involvement.

My passion for health and fitness is an extension of my work and I enjoy bringing the two together. It makes the day wonderful knowing that I work and live surrounded by my two passions!

See you in class!
