Mobility - Strength - Flexibility - Range of motion


Unlock Your Body with Essentrics

Essentrics is on a mission to establish the true meaning of what it is to be fit at every age and stage of your life, with a special focus on age prevention and reversal through movement. We believe that fitness should not be measured with an index, in miles, in muscle mass or in speed. Rather, it should be measured in one’s ability to move freely, live actively and without pain.​


The goal of the Essentrics Workout is to create a balanced body such that 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.

With thousands of testimonials from the programs’ devotees of all ages and fitness levels, professional athletes, Olympians, doctors and physiotherapists—we are confident that  Essentrics  will target what you need, unlock what is tight, strengthen what is weak and tone what needs shaping.

I have done various classes with Nancy over the past few years, and find her to be an excellent instructor. Nancy is passionate about Essentrics, and about helping people regain mobility, become pain-free, and to maintain a healthy, fit lifestyle. She draws on a background of dance and fitness, and has immersed herself in the study of Essentrics, providing classes that are fun, instructional, and geared to help people of all age levels and abilities. As an instructor, Nancy is warm, engaging and down-to-earth. She is very knowledgeable and explains each move, how to do it correctly, and the reason behind the flow of the move and how it will help. Her enthusiasm is contagious, her classes inclusive, and her outlook on life is inspiring!

Fully Certified L4 Essentrics® Instructor

I am an Essentrics®️ instructor in Dieppe, NB.  I have been teaching movement since 2005.  Through my own life experiences, I have been shown time and again the importance of daily movement in our lives.


I was born with a broken spinous process of the L5 causing the L5 to slip up to 52% over the years.  As a child, doctors didn't think much of my back pain.  In my late teens, the pain got worse and I started to get tingling in my legs.  By my 20s, the pain was chronic.  X-rays and MRIs where taken and the L5 slippage was discovered.  I tried medication, physiotherapy and acupuncture to alleviate the pain.  I was put on a waiting  list for a spinal fusion surgery.  


During that time, I discovered the healing benefits of gentle movement. I was able to rebalance my back muscles, get rid of the chronic pain and stop the L5 from further slippage.  I am grateful to say I never went for the operation.  Essentrics has rebalanced my body, got rid of the pain, and keeps me int the best shape of my life.


I would love to help you achieve your own goals.  It's never too late to start moving and there is no better time to start than the present.
