GYROKINESIS® is the predecessor to GYROTONIC®. GYROKINESIS® adheres to the same principles and concepts of GYROTONIC® but does so without the use of equipment. It can often feel similar to a dance class or yoga class because of the group dynamic. Flow and rhythm are an essential component of class. Unlike yoga classes, there is no holding of poses, nor is there the potential for energetic stagnation.
GYROKINESIS® includes stool work, mat and standing work. Similar to yoga, students have the opportunity to experience a strong sense of community. The classes move, breathe and grow together. The movements stimulate the nervous system, open energy pathways and oxygenate the blood. GYROKINESIS® increases body awareness, coordination and flexibility with special attention to spinal motions and joint articulation.
