About the Gyrotonic Method

Living a life dedicated to the art of movement, I thrive to provide tools that can be used to create renewed energy and vitality in your lives by deepening the mind/body connection.

The Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis Methods do not only improve your life physically but also mentally and emotionally, building a sense of confidence you can carry into other aspects of life.

 

Both the Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis Methods are suitable for all body types and ability levels. With adjustable machines and a wide variety of movement progressions to choose from, it has something to offer everyone.

 

I believe it is important to let go of ideas of right and wrong with the understanding that our bodies are constantly changing and absorbing new information.

 

I create personalized workouts for all clients, respecting their individualized pathway to a healthier body. For groups I modify the class to best support the needs of each individual.

 

By using Juliu Horvath's intricately designed pulley tower along with the specialized pieces of equipment you will be led through a continuous series of exercises including spinal articulation, upper body strengthening and openings, leg strengthening and stretching, as well as core stabilization. Our aim is to create healthier habitual movement patterns. 

 

During Gyrokinesis Method classes you will be led through rhythmic choreography coordinated with breathe. From standing, to seated, to floor work, to aerobics, the Gyrokinesis Method allows you, the practitioner, to create mobility, strength, and openness in your bodies without the use of machines.
