But the human body is not meant to endure chronic pain. Miranda Esmonde-White has spent decades helping professional athletes, ballet dancers, and Olympians overcome potentially career-ending injuries and guiding MS patients and cancer survivors toward pain-free mobility. Now, in Forever Painless, she shows everyone how to heal their aching bodies and live pain free.

An aspirational and inclusive guide to 'freeing up' the body through dynamic movement, focusing on the 'feel-good' benefits of stretching. Aside from improved flexibility, these include better posture ('standing tall'), reduced back strain and the mental 'brain boost' that results from increased blood flow during movement. Move explores dynamic stretching, or slow flowing movement. This is the most effective way to increase joint range of motion (the 'Move it or Lose it' principle) thereby allowing us to move comfortably and freely, as we were born to do. Uniquely designed to explore just six key move sequences each containing the main planes of motion: flexion (forward bending), extension (back bending), side bending and rotation. They can be used either as five-minute stand-alone routines, or tagged together to form a longer flexibility sequence as you might experience in a flow yoga class. Rather than the common format used in stretching books of detailing the science of stretching, followed by a list of exercises, this book puts the six key moves centre stage and spends most of the book explaining and refining them. Each routine has just four variations within it. This means the reader does not have to keep switching positions. The book avoids using yoga jargon or sports science language and instead focuses on the 'feel-good' benefits of stretching.
