GYROKINESIS®


The GYROKINESIS® is a movement method that gently works the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences and through the awareness and engagement of the center. It is an original and unique movement method, that works with the coordination of the breath and has qualities similar to those found in Yoga, Tai Chi and dance.
Each class begins on a chair with a gentle warm up sequence to awaken the senses, and stimulate the nervous system. This is followed by a series of fluid spinal motions which increase range of motion, and prepare the body to explore more complex movements with agility, and ease. 
It is recommended for non-dancers, dancers, persons with injuries or local pain such as back problems.
A perfect way to renew energy and a general wellbeing !
