Gyrokinesis upholds the same principles of Gyrotonic, but does so without the use of equipment. It is similar to a dance or yoga class, as it is taught in a group setting. Like a dance class, flow and rhythm are essential to the curriculum. But unlike a yoga class, there is no position holding or potential for energetic stagnation.

Gyrokinesis Class
Classes can have a strong sense of community.
Class traditionally begins seated on a bench. The class prepares the mind and body for the movement ahead with an awakening of the senses through self-massage and simple breathing patterns.
Bench Work
In the seated position, the class moves through a series of fluid movements that mobilize the spine. These movements include arching, curling, bending, twisting and spiraling.
Floor Work
Encompassing a variety of positions including kneeling, seated, and standing, the floor work releases and strengthens the entire body. Focus is on a variety of joint and muscle groups including hips, knees, hamstrings and abdominals.
Corresponding breathing patterns stimulate the nervous system, open energy pathways and oxygenate the blood.
Higher level classes add endurance training and increasingly challenging activities.
