CALLANETICS Rehab

Welcome to Callanetics Rehab. Join Sandra Hanna as she gently guides you through the process of restoring your body to its youthful shape. If you have never exercised before or if you are trying to get back into a regular routine, this is the video series for you.

Callan Pinckney created her original exercise program as a means of rehabilitating her injured body and to relieve pain. Callanetics Rehab takes inspiration from Callan’s own rehabilitation exercises. Consisting of 3 new, progressive workouts, this series can be used by everyone, whether you are just starting out, have recently recovered from injury, or you are a seasoned exerciser and need some muscle balancing and recovery. These gentle but effective programs can benefit you. Also includes a bonus 10-minute Daily Stretch.

Callanetics is a series of gentle but powerful exercises that incorporates stretching and micro movements called pulses.  The pulsing action targets the deepest muscles creating a long, lean, toned and strong body without adding bulk.  This no impact program is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

The 3 stages of Callanetics Rehab:  Completion of each stage will leave you feeling taller, improve your posture and quickly change how you look and feel.

1. Revive

Lie down on your mat and enjoy being guided through each movement with the emphasis on paying attention to where you feel muscle tension.  Each slow, mindful movement will gently reawaken your body. This is your opportunity to let go of any musculature stress. You’ll notice an immediate improvement in your posture, and enjoy a new freedom of movement in your shoulders, neck, upper back as well as your hips, knees and feet.

2. Restore

Once you have gone through the process of Restore once or twice you are then ready for the next stage, Revive.  Revive will start with a 10 minute Daily Stretch routine. You will then be guided through a sculpting routine to strengthen and reshape your body to its previous youthful form.

3. Rebuild

By now you’ll be living in a different body and you are ready to pick up the pace and increase your pulses and intensity of each sculpting exercise.   The sculpting exercises can be performed two or three times a week depending on your fitness goals.  

Sandra Hanna

Sandra was introduced to the Callanetics Program after the birth of her second son in 1987.  Callan Pinckney’s first book, 10 Years Younger in 10 Hours was life changing and she knew instinctively that she had found the exercise program that would restore her body to it’s youthful shape.

Sandra studied each exercise in the book to master the tiny movements and to her delight she found that her body responded to the exercises beautifully and extremely quickly.   She watched with pure amazement as her body became leaner, stronger, sculpted and with increased muscle tone. 

In 2001 Sandra flew to Chicago to certify as a Callanetics® Trainer.   Over the following few months she made several trips to attend trainings and work alongside some of Callan’s most respected Instructors.   She opened her Gold Coast Callanetics Studio in June 2001.
