Motionlab is very proud to host a Teacher Training Course for specialized GYROTONIC® Equipment,
Archway, level 1. Oct 24- 31 .
What does the Archway uniquely have to offer, as compared to the other GYROTONIC® equipment, and as compared to the GYROKINESIS® exercise sequences?
Each piece of equipment challenges, and supports the body in a unique way. The PulleyTower allows you to explore GYROTONIC® principles in a stable, supported environment. For instance, in the arch & curl exercise sequences, the handle unit supports the upper body. In the hamstring sequences, the upper straps support the lower body.
The Archway exercises take you into a place where the equipment is no longer supporting you. On the Archway you’re required to figure out how to support yourself against gravity.
Who can benefit from the Archway sequences?
The Archway is tremendous for creating flexibility. For those who have excess tightness in their bodies, the Archway allows them to hang into their bodyweight to loosen up. On the Archway, clients are able to use the strength required to hang on their own body weight to release deep tension.
Some of our most avid GYROTONIC® students are in their 50’s, and 60’s. Their primary goal is to stay fit, and healthy so they can continue to maintain an active, independent lifestyle for years to come. Is the Archway beneficial for them?
While the Archway is great for athletes who are looking for ways to increase the efficiency, and power of their movements, it is also has a lot to offer the average client.
There are many preliminary exercises that are accessible to the average person. The preliminary exercises in the hanging, climbing rungs, waterfall, and levitation sequences are really great. Those exercises let you get comfortable supporting your own body weight, which is an ability that is important to maintain as we age. There are simple arch & curl exercises in hanging positions that can build a lot of strength, comfort and confidence in those students, allowing them to become comfortable in their bodies in a variety of environments.
Please, note on-going GYROTONIC® class will be cancelled on October 25th, due to Teacher Training Course.
