Miranda Esmonde-White

Using upbeat instrumental music, with wonderful outdoor settings (both poolside and in a garden) in Cancun, Mexico, you'll sculpt and tone long strong muscles. Two distinct segments, one disc for upper body the other for lower body, both will assist the participant in toning their body (and gaining flexibility from the active stretches). Disc 1 is for the Upper Body and is broken down as follows:

Workout 1: Arms, Abs, Posture-30 minutes

Workout 2: Arms, Abs, Waist-30 minutes

Disc 2 is for the Lower Body and contains the following:

Workout 1: Lower Body & Abs-32 minutes

Workout 2: Lower Body & Abs-33 minutes

Each segment is only approximately 30 minutes in length so its easy to choose the workout based on your personal time constraints and needs.

Miranda's cuing is precise so you'll gain the most benefit from each pose. She'll often provide form pointers throughout each workout.

Each workout begins with fluid, rhythmic movements. Uniquely integrating isometrics with active stretching and traditional toning, you'll tighten and tone without the use of weights. Miranda often mixes traditional work (such as tricep dips, abdominal curls/bicycles, leg lifts, etc) with ballet inspired exercises. (some also mimic pilates which continue to add additional toning benefits)

Short pulses and static squeezes (or bounces as she sometimes calls it) will help to slenderize and trim the arms and legs (both inner and outer thighs) and reduce saddlebags.

The lower body disc includes some lower impact aerobic moves that will raise the heart rate and continue to burn fat. (very easy to follow moves such as side steps, kicks, hamstring curls, knees and twists) Ballet type moves are included in the lower body toning. Miranda blends the ballet exercises with well structured isometric elements (adding more toning emphasis to really work the glutes, saddlebags and thighs).

This program is low impact, requires no special equipment and can be done anywhere. If you enjoyed Miranda's other Classical Stretch programs, you'll be sure to like this one as well!
