Callanetics is a series of stretching and contracting exercises that activate the body's largest muscle groups, using tiny, gentle, precise movements, called pulses.
This unique and effective exercise programme was created by Callan Pinckney who passed away on 1 March 2012.
They are done very slowly, reaching deep into the muscles to give you a strong, firm body, without adding bulk. There are no jerking or bouncing movements in Callanetics. Callanetics is and always has been no-impact. Some people have even called it the 'no effort' exercise, but as anyone who has experienced Callanetics will tell you it only looks effortless.
It is not difficult to do, but you will feel your muscles working, as these tiny movements are in fact incredibly powerful, providing an extremely fast, safe and effective way of achieving a strong, more youthful-looking body.
