Gyrokinesis® exercises are those done as “mat work”. They allow one to work on the entire body through seven natural elements of spinal movement: forward, backward, right and left sides, right and left twists, and circular as well as all other joint articulation. This approach systematically and gently works the joints and muscles through rhythmic and undulating movements. These movements stimulate the body’s internal organs while different corresponding breathing patterns are integrating with the movements. Fluidity is key. Those who practice Gyrokinesis exercises tend to be more relaxed in their daily lives and can move with increased flexibility and ease.
These classes feel like a constantly moving yoga or dance class. You begin on a stool and move down to the floor. You will not believe how nicely the body responds to the coaxing of the Gyrokinesis movements.
