Offering classes in Essentrics® for total mind/ body coaching.
"The mission of the Essentrics® workout is to create a balanced body whereby the strength in your muscles doesn't inhibit your movement, and your mobility is enhanced by your strength. Essentrics® dynamically combines strengthening and stretching to develop a strong, toned body with the complete ability of moving each joint and muscle freely and with full range of motion."
I do an Essentrics®workout everyday because it makes my body feel SO good.
I teach Essentrics® so that I can share this gift with you!
Essentrics® Private Lessons If you wish to delve deeper into the Essentrics techniques, private lessons will accelerate the learning curve and allow you to achieve your objectives much faster! Lessons are designed to help the student find and execute proper alignment at their own pace so that the maximum benefits of each exercise can be obtained. Exercises are broken down and modified according to the students individual needs (e.g. tight or injured muscles) and objectives (eg pain relief, strengthening etc.) Lessons are conducted in front of a mirror so that the student can visually see what is happening, and connect the feeling to the movement. The mirror serves as a great teaching tool and helps to vastly increase body awareness!

Essentrics® Class Descriptions below:
Essentrics® is a dynamic full body workout for all fitness levels, that simultaneously combines stretching and strengthening while engaging all 650 muscles through standing and floor work. This class will increase your strength, flexibility, and mobility; creating a healthy, toned and pain-free body!
Essentrics® Aging Backwards - designed to help you regain mobility, eliminate pain, and gently strengthen the full body. Essentrics Aging Backwards classes have a slower pace than our general classes and can be done fully standing, with a chair/barre or with the option of floor work.
Essentrics® Barre - a dynamic, challenging, full body workout, combining standing, floor, and barre/chair exercises in one class. With 1/3 of the class guaranteed on the barre, your muscles will be deeply stretched, lengthened, and toned, leaving you feeling lighter, leaner and full of energy! (No previous barre experience required to participate.)
Essentrics® Release, Rebalance & Restore - this class is medium-paced and easy to follow--ideal for anyone new to the Essentrics® workout. You will experience a relaxed, but dynamic and deep full body workout to release tight muscles, rebalance joints and restore balance in your body. Effective for stress release, injury prevention and recovery, and pain relief.
Here's what people are saying about ESSENTRICS®:
I didn't know ESSENTRICS existed until just five months ago but I am now a believer. The increase in my body awareness, flexibility and balance is amazing. One day I suddenly realized my gait was different and I know the outcome of a recent slip on the ice would have been more negative without the strengthening work involved with this program. Also, as a mental health professional, I very much appreciate the degree of concentration and coordination involved in ESSSENTRICS and know it will provide long term benefit to my mental functioning. This is exactly the type of fitness program I was looking for!
I cannot say enough about how impressive Donna Ginsberg is as an instructor. While I am expending mental energy focusing on coordination of movements for myself, she is offering individualized attention and instruction to several participants at the same time! Simultaneously she is demonstrating movement, and providing verbal cues and educational information, showing just why she is a Level 4 instructor. I am so happy she has brought ESSENTRICS to our area! --Crystal L, Crozet, VA
After one class Alison texted: "This morning was the first morning in I don't know how many years that I rose out of bed and my lower back and hips didn't ache. Incredible." -- Charlotteville, VA
"I have tried Yoga and other exercise classes but Essentrics is by far the best one for me now. I love that it works the total body, increases balance and flexibility too. After an hour of Essentrics I feel stretched, toned, satisfied that I have had a good workout and it puts me in a great mood.!"-Martha--Charlottesville,VA
"I am so happy that I found Essentrics! The movements are gentle, but also strenghthening, and the music is great. My posture and balance have both improved, and I feel stronger and have more energy. Over the last few years I experienced shoulder pain when doing many exercise programs, but not Essentrics. This is something that I can and will do for the rest of my life.!--Tally, Crozet, VA
"Though very new to Essentrics, I now can't imagine not including it in my life regularly. Stretching and releasing the tightness in my muscles and joints that builds up everyday is wonderful. The improved freedom of movement and little endorphin kick keeps me coming back for more." --Diane--Charlottesville,VA
Designed to help your company or organization become more engaged and passionate about what you do.
I will walk your team through an interactive group coaching session combined with a movement practice that will help them:
"Donna, thank you for a great day. Your presentation was inspiring and fun! You gave us tools that will help us deal more effectively with the stressors in our work environment as well as our everyday lives. My team also came away with a greater ability to appreciate one another and all that we have in our lives."
