What is GYROKINESIS® Method?
Once known as “Yoga for Dancers”, GYROKINESIS® exercise is an important component of the GYROTONIC® methodology, which is in fact Yoga in Motion.
While GYROKINESIS® exercise involves equipment; GYROKINESIS® exercise is practiced during floor classes using a mat and a stool. GYROKINESIS® exercise incorporates many key principles taken from yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai chi, though it is not based on these or other specific exercise models. You never hold a position for long but work at creating a fluid connection between the postures creating a dance that is invigorating and toning.
The effect of GYROKINESIS® exercise is an increased range of motion and coordination. All of the movements take your joints through their full range of motion and increase strength and flexibility while providing a cardio workout similar to a brisk walk.
