A Personal Note from Miranda Esmonde-White, Essentrics co-creator (September 14, 2015)
Your descriptions (about Essentrics) are dead on and have intelligently enhanced what we have written. I am forwarding what you have written so that we can pass it on to the other instructors.
I love the way you have so brilliantly understood and developed the explanations of Essentrics. The use of mini spine muscles are so dead on in explaining why Essentrics wakes the brain.
And I already told you how much I agree to describe Essentrics as a brain-body workout.
Why do Essentrics with Betty?
Betty has consistently earned top scores at every level of Essentrics certification, which rates instructors based on knowledge as well as teaching skills. One of her exams received the distinction of being a showcase for all Essentrics instructors worldwide, and she got featured as "Teacher of the Month" (November 2015) based on her insights about the technique and being an inspiration to the instructor community.
Betty's teaching skills and expertise are matched by her devotion: she left a solid, globe-trotting corporate career in New York to share and spread the workout she loves in La Jolla and San Diego before returning to NYC.
This passion also fuels her to continually explore the unique efficacy of Essentrics. Through ongoing dialogues with experts in neuroscience, biology, medicine, tai chi, qigong, as well as dance physiotherapy, Betty deepens her appreciation of the workout and the diverse techniques it embodies. She applies this expanding knowledge to elevate her both as a practitioner and as a teacher, helping her clients to effectively reach their goals, whether they are pain relief, better athletic performance, body sculpting, stress release, or overall wellness.
