GyrokinesisTM

Integrating principles taken from dance, tai chi and yoga, GyrokinesisTM is a unique system that works the body through fluid, repetitious movements, incorporating both chair and mat work based exercises.

Starting with a self-massage the senses are awakened encouraging the whole body to participate in the session. Rhythmical movements of the head, thorax and pelvis create spiraling, bending and rippling of the spinal column to move the body in all planes of motion. Once the core and nervous system have been stimulated the peripheral limbs can then be mobilised. Starting from the chair the exercises move to the mat, through seated, kneeling, lying and standing positions.

Each series of exercises progresses in range of movement, intensity and speed using breathing principles to open up energy pathways, and integrate the whole body by freeing up restrictions that prevent the body from letting go of pain and trauma and so preventing mobility.

Through intended direction of force, active elongation of the muscles and continuous motion, balance, strength and flexibility and coordination are improved.

The class can be both relaxing and stimulating on a deeper level than merely physical, creating a sense of centering. The pace and feel are determined by the participants whose energy is an integral part of the session and as a result is accessible to any physical level.
