Miranda Esmonde-White

MIRANDA ESMONDE-WHITE is one of North America's greatest educators on healthy aging and pain-free living. She is best known for her PBS fitness series, Classical Stretch, on-air since 1999 and rated the #1 fitness show on the network. A classically trained ballerina who danced with the National Ballet of Canada, Esmonde-White created the Essentrics technique, which uses low-intensity strengthening and stretching exercises to relieve pain, prevent injury and slenderize and tone the body. Based in Montreal, she works with professional and Olympic athletes and celebrities, and teaches classes to thousands of students worldwide each year. She is the author of Aging Backwards, a New York Times and Globe and Mail bestseller that sparked an award-winning PBS documentary of the same name.
