Callanetics Basics is a safe, gentle, easy-to-learn routine designed especially for the beginner. If you have never exercised before or if you are trying to get back into a regular routine, Callanetics Basics has been developed so you can learn the fundamentals of Callanetics at your own pace.
Callanetics is a series of small, gentle, precise motions consistently applied that quickly tighten hips, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, flatten the tummy, lift the bust, firm underarms, tone the entire body and dramatically improve your posture. Unlike other exercise programs that stress hard jerking motions, the Callanetics exercises are truly no-impact.
Featuring exercises for every part of the body, this half-hour routine is the perfect place to start your journey to a more beautiful and healthy body. Perfect for beginners and active older adults.
