Developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, Pilates is a system that improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the entire body. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a long, strong core, and improving coordination and balance.
GYROTONIC® GYROKINESIS® methods
The GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods are complementary
exercise methods designed to work the entire body holistically. Both methods
allow the body to move the way it was designed, in natural spiraling and circular
pathways. Through a sequence of rhythmic and fluid exercises, the body is able to relax, re-energize, and re-pattern itself in a way that encourages supple and dynamic strength. Attention is placed on the decompression of the spine and joints. Specific breath patterns encourage focus, making each session or class uniquely powerful.
Our experiences have taught us the power of presence and informed touch, and we believe in empowering individuals on all levels. The body contains it's own unique healing wisdom that only needs to be witnessed and supported in order to blossom. We offer Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and intuitive deep tissue bodywork to help our clients access the underlying health that is already available to them.
With over fifteen years of professional teaching experience, we offer only the highest quality instruction to our community. We have studied under Master Teachers in the modalities of Yoga, Pilates, and the GYROTONICⓇ method and have applied these teachings to our professional dance careers. As passionate teachers and lifelong students, we are curious about where classical methods like Yoga, Pilates, and the GYROTONICⓇ method intersect and where they stand apart. We aim to carefully integrate our training and offer a blend that emphasizes experiential anatomy, creative imagery, and rhythmic breathing and movement.
