Yoga in Motion/The GYROKINESIS® Method

Suitable for students with a sound body.
We recommend that you have prior experience to taking this class and recommend the GYROKINESIS® Beginners 5 week course if you are a beginner. If you have an injury, pregnant or a health concern we highly recommend that you take either an initial consultation and we also offer  GYROTONIC® studio sessions & Yoga/Pilates Therapeutics classes at our studio.

The class flows at a lovely pace so taking a GYROKINESIS® exercise 5 week Beginners course prior would be recommended. 

GYROKINESIS® exercise works the entire body through seven natural elements of spinal movement.

It systematically and gently works all joints and muscles of the body.
Postures are smoothly and harmoniously connected. The use of rhythmic breathing, undulating, spiraling and 3 dimensional movement conditions the body, stimulates its internal organs and opens energy pathways.
Fluidity and ease is the key.
Gyrokinesis® invigorates and re-educates the body to move with fluidity, relaxation and power.
