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.
GYROTONIC® exercises are performed on custom-designed equipment. The support, resistance, and sensory information that the equipment provides, allows each client to work in a safe yet challenging environment. The private attention of a GYROTONIC® session, allows your specific needs to be met with care.
GYROKINESIS® exercises are performed on mats and stools. This allows the work to be experienced either privately, or in a group class setting. The uninterrupted flow of a class allows you to move and breathe with others, while connecting to and challenging your body.

Our approach to yoga, as in life, is to root into the wisdom of our bodies through mindful movement in order to walk with Beauty in all of our relations. In befriending our minds and bodies through pranayama and asana, we refine our senses and learn how to listen deeply. We also develop our intuition, the subtle “inner healer” that helps us unravel unhealthy physical, psychological, and spiritual patterns that hold us back from showing up fully to our everyday lives. The lifelong practice of yoga is one of removing these layers and uncovering more authentic, primal pieces that allow us to move more freely and joyfully in our own skin. Yoga is a practice of returning to the present moment and showing up for whatever is coming up with kindness; a teacher that helps us develop an inner strength that helps us through life’s many curveballs. When we return to this sacred center, again and again, we discover the deep satisfaction that comes from being in service to our hearts, others, and our communities.
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. The core, consisting of the muscles of the abdomen, low back, and hips, is often called the “powerhouse” and is key to a person’s stability.
We are committed to The Pilates Movement Principles for Whole Body Health:
As stated by The Pilates Method Alliance, “The benefits [of Pilates] are both measurable and perceived:
BCST is a healing art that works with the energies that create and maintain health in the human system. While not a manipulative therapy, it has its roots in osteopathy and has evolved to include influences from human development, pre and perinatal psychology, trauma resolution, and recent advances in neuroscience. BCST supports nervous system regulation and allows the resolution of conditions resulting from stress and trauma. We use an educated, gentle, non-invasive touch to engage with the expressions of health in the system.
