Gyro

The Gyrokinesis Method is a movement method that addresses the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. It is an original and unique method that coordinates movement, breath and mental focus.

The Gyrokinesis Method is practiced on a mat and chair without equipment. Without the feedback and guidance of equipment, participants in a Gyrokinesis class are more dependent on their own proprioception to explore movement sequences.

Fun fact: In it’s very early days Gyrokinesis was “yoga for dancers”

This beautiful, creative, sensual dance is an adventure in itself but learning it comes with many additional benefits including more sensitive lead/follow skills (read: dance more successfully with more people!}, improved balance, a better musical ear, and improved movement mechanics.
