Gyrokinesis Classes in Dayton
Gyrokinesis exercises are designed to work the entire body through spinal movement and joint articulation. Based on the body’s natural ability to move forward and backward and side to side, the movements are designed to be rhythmic and fluid. Rather than specific postures or stances being held for long periods of time, Gyrokinesis® exercises are smoothly integrated, seeming more like dance than traditional yoga. Natural breathing patterns are also incorporated into Gyrokinesis® exercises. Watch a sample video.
How Does Gyrotonic/Gyrokinesis compare with Pilates?
The techniques are complimentary with one another in that both coordinate movements with breath and awareness being the key to making transformational shifts in our bodies. In both systems, exercises can be performed either on a mat or on specialized resistance equipment (Pilates uses springs and Gyrotonic® uses weights). Both systems can be tailored to persons of any age or ability and will improve strength, flexibility and coordination.
