“Think of Callanetics as meditation in motion”

“Callanetics is a series of stretching and contracting exercises that activate the body's largest muscle groups, using tiny, gentle, precise movements, called pulses. They are done very slowly in what I call 'triple slow motion', reaching deep into the muscles to give you a strong, firm body, without adding bulk.

Think of Callanetics as meditation in motion. You reach into the body to work the large muscle groups, as though working through them layer by layer, using movements as small and delicate as a pulse. There are no jerking or bouncing movements in Callanetics. Callanetics is and always has been no-impact. Some people have even called it the 'no effort' exercise, but as anyone who has experienced Callanetics will tell you it only looks effortless. It is not difficult to do, but you will feel your muscles working, as these tiny movements are in fact incredibly powerful, providing an extremely fast, safe and effective way of achieving a strong, more youthful-looking body.

I like to say that Callanetics defies gravity, because every second of every day gravity is pulling your muscles down, causing your body to droop, sag and spread over the years. With Callanetics, however, as you work to get your muscles strong, your muscles will lift, taking the skin with them and restoring everything to a more youthful position, producing those sleek, tight body contours we all so admire.

In all the exercises the emphasis is on techniques that prevent you from putting any strain on the lower back. By stretching the spine at the same time you are working the surrounding muscles, pressure on your back will be alleviated, and stretching the spine will also improve your posture. As the neck region and the area between the shoulder blades loosen, it becomes easier to pull your shoulders back and stand more erect. The neck appears longer, and this can have the effect of making you appear taller. Whatever your shape or size, Callanetics can enhance your appearance by tightening your muscles more than you ever dreamed possible. And it takes only a few hours to see truly astounding results.

In short, Callanetics produces the fastest results in the shortest possible time -with no injuries. At the same time it protects and strengthens your back. The tiny, precise, delicate pulsing movements will also work your heart in a very gentle way. Whatever your age, sex or physical condition, it's not too late to rejuvenate your body and achieve a fantastic figure. You can have the beautiful, powerful body you deserve, if you're willing to work for.”
