This book is a ground breaking guide to understanding how aging happens and how to repair and reverse its effects–and roll back join pain and muscle loss at any age through gentle, scientifically designed essentrics workouts developed by the star of PBS’s classical stretch series.
From her foundation as a dancer with the National Ballet of Canada an decades of work with professional athletes, dancers and ordinary people struggling with a variety of health and fitness changes, Miranda Esmonde-White has discovered that it’s never too late to slow down or even reverse the effects of aging.
The human body is designed to function for the full length of its life and has an amazing capacity to heal. If we undertake Miranda’s gentle, full-body flexibility and strengthening exercises for just thirty minutes a day, we can look and feel tremendous, vibrant and active at any age.
The typical message we get as we grow older is that we need to take it easy–exactly the wrong advice. It causes us to neglect the single most important system in the body, the one that makes al the others work: our muscles.
The old adage of use it or lose it is true. But Miranda’s fitness and anti-aging breakthrough has come from understanding that how we use it is all-important.

In this book, Miranda also shares some of her remarkable conclusions about how to keep your body young and shows you exactly how to stretch and strengthen.
