"FANTASTIC!! I started using the Esmodne Technique videos after a major surgery and while suffering from Chronic Fatique Syndrome. The instructions were easy to follow. I felt more limber after each workout. Within a 6 months, I had better posture, was more limber and lost 6" around my waist without a corresponding weight loss. I dropped two pant sizes. I've been recommending her series to everyone that noticed my changes.
My husband lost weight, but couldn't get his waist down. He was using multiple gym machines and lifting weights. He started Miranda (as we call it)and dropped 2" on his waist (a pant size).
My 80+ year old petite mother-in-law complained about her hip size and her decreasing flexibility. She started Miranda and dropped a pant size and no longer complains about flexibility.
Recently my 20 something year old son asked for the videos, he decided that if his mom, dad & grandmom could do her videos, then he should try too. He dropped a pant size.
I object to several previous whinny reviews. Miranda only mentions ONCE her sponsor in each of her tapes. One needs to remember that a sponsor helps to keep the price of the videos down."
Great Full-Body Workout

"I have been using Classical Stretch 2-3x/week for six weeks now. I love this video! It has profoundly changed the shape of my body. The results are far more dramatic than any I have gotten from hard-core weightlifting and cardio regimens. I hate going to the gym now, but I exercise regularly at home--cardio and floor work--and this is a wonderful addition to my routine. My upper body has slimmed all over. My arms are "buff" and my legs have become sleek and shapely. My neck and back are vastly improved. My upper thigh and hip area has been totally re-sculpted by this video. This routine has resolved the lower back pain I was having from my desk job. I had a muscle spasm in my upper back recently, which I treated with this video instead of muscle relaxers, and it went away! I cannot say enough good things about this video. If you're looking for something relaxing that will also improve and shape your body, then Classical Stretch is for you. If you want a routine that's just easy and relaxing, try A.M./P.M. stretch instead. A.M./P.M. feels nice, but won't produce the same rapid results.
My one complaint is that the first leg/hip segment isn't hard enough. But at the same time, it gives me a chance to relax again and catch my breath and make it through the remaining 30 minutes. At the end of the video, I feel absolutely marvelous, which is why I'm giving it all 5 stars."
A great routine anyone can do

"I've never posted a review here but after seeing the "terrible video," "too much guesswork," and "for old ladies" comments, I decided to put in my two cents.
I am 47 years old, have never had a weight problem and have, in the past, done years of martial arts training. But I am lazy by nature and suddenly, my age caught up to me and I realized I was flabby and out of shape.
About two months ago, I started doing the Classical Stretch workout on PBS. The routines look deceptively simple, but there's a lot going on under the surface. Do them for a week or so and the benefits will start to kick in. At first I was doing it because it looked easy and because it's on when I wake up. I considered it an old lady workout, too. But then I got hooked on it, so I bought the DVD. Alternating between the Full Body Workout and the Atheletes Intense Stretch, I am well on my way back to the strength and flexibility I had 20 years ago. I've also noticed that my posture is better and I never get back aches anymore.
The excercises aren't strictly stretching. They're stretching and toning combined. Although they don't seem that difficult, they really work and it's just about impossible to injure yourself doing them. The workout is not an ordeal. After doing it I feel great all day.
This is the first time I've worked out with a video and I really enjoy it. Miranda Esmonde White is in her mid 50's. Maybe that makes her an old lady, but she looks great."

"I do several different DVD workouts when I travel, mostly yoga, and this is a great addition to my top 3 or 4 DVDs. When I do it in the morning I feel better all day. I'm very active in the gym and outdoors and this provides the balance to my workouts that I need to stretch my muscles. I like both of the workouts. When I want a gentle stretching I do the Full Body Workout, and if I'm feeling more energetic I do the Athlete's Intense Stretch. If I've tweaked some joint skiing or biking, I feel like I can do these routines without causing further injury. Great DVD!"
A Great Stretch Video!

"This is a great DVD to add to your collection. I do a lot of cardio (kickboxing, step, dance) and weight lifting at the gym and wear high heels all day. My muscles, although toned, were really tight and really needed to be stretched out properly but I never seemed to find the time to do it consistently. This video saved my life. I love the Athletic Intense Stretch (1 of 2 workouts on the video) and saw and felt results in the first workout! She does the best floor workout to stretch hamstrings, legs, hip flexors, even feet! And the upper body arm stretch - I didn't even know my arms needed stretching! This is 50 minutes of pure bliss. I am definitely getting the legs and butt stretch DVD as well. For all you former dancers out there, this stretch mimics the stretching you do before a dance class."
