What is your definition of a healthy lifestyle?

In order to have a healthy lifestyle, there are many aspects that need to be considered. One thing for sure is that there is no cookie cutter answer as we all need different things at different stages of our life. I would say that at each stage we need to be self-aware and be true to all aspects of ourselves from how we eat and how often we exercise — to whether we are happy at work and at home. We also need to surround ourselves with people who will bring out the best in us. By taking care of these facets of life, we will be able to keep all aspects of ourselves healthy.


Who has inspired you and why?

Creation inspires me every day. From studying the latest scientific study on basically anything, to looking at human anatomy and the beauty of nature. The brilliance and genius of creations blows my mind every day!


When you’re not working, how do you like to spend your time?

I’m almost always working! I love work because it relaxes me and makes me happy. Besides my actual job, it’s cleaning cupboards, gardening, etc. Even while traveling on holiday, I can’t stop being inspired by what I see around me. I enjoy sitting in a cafe or at an airport and watching how people move.

Why did you start the company with your mother?

Health is one of the most important aspects of human life. I have always known that I would work in the field of health. After University, I began working in pharmaceuticals, thinking I would make a difference in helping people gain access to medication as a way to health (as a Health Economist I worked to have medication covered by the government).


After a few years, however, I realized that I wanted to do something more personal and natural – plus take advantage of my entrepreneurial character and willingness to take chances. At the time, my mother had created an incredible workout (Essentrics) that was proving beneficial for everyone, from women of all ages to young Olympic athletes. I knew we should share it with the world in a bigger way. Thereafter, the PBS Classical Stretch series was born and then more recently our educational documentaries Aging Backwards and Forever Painless.


Best part of what you do on a day-to-day basis. Most challenging part?

The best part of my day is receiving all the testimonials that people send in; we receive at least 10 per day plus all the facebook messages from all over North America and beyond. It’s motivating to know we are changing people’s lives and in such an accessible and affordable way – everyone, no matter their income level, should be able to be healthy and feel good. The challenge as a small business is to keep up with international growth, maintain the quality of our teachers worldwide, and increase awareness of the technique.

How did you get started with Essentrics?

My physiotherapist friend introduced it to me in 2010. She was a professional athlete and among the first Essentrics instructors at our Montreal Flagship Studio. She said, “Meg you gotta try this.” I was instantly hooked. I bought Classical Stretch Season 6, started taking classes, and the rest is history. (I’ll always remember my first class – the arm pumps and side-leg-lifts had me laughing they felt so impossibly hard! I don’t think they’ve gotten any easier, I’ve just gotten used to the pain!).


I love Essentrics because of the way it makes me feel, inside and out. It’s fun, efficient, interesting, smart and makes me feel capable, strong, and feminine. Life can get crazy; every class is like pressing a reset button – energizing and fueling my body and my mind.
