"If, at the age of 30, you are stiff and out of shape, you are old.
If, at 60, you are supple and strong, then you are young."
- Joseph Pilates
Gyrokinesis® with Philip Seth
Returning! Gyrokinesis – Move like never before!
Our classes are designed to be accessible to folks of all ages and fitness levels. As a practice, GYROKINESIS® incorporates many key principles from yoga, pilates, dance, gymnastics and tai-chi.
It is a total body workout that builds flexibility and core strength.
The system works the entire body through seven natural elements of spinal movement: forward, backward, left side, right side, left twist, right twist and circular, as well as all other joint articulation.
This methodology systematically and gently works the joints and muscles through rhythmic and undulating exercises. Movement stimulates the body's internal organs and different corresponding breathing patterns are integrated.
Fluidity is the key. Postures are not held for long periods of time. Instead, postures are smoothly and harmoniously connected through the use of breath, making exercises appear and feel more like a dance than traditional yoga.
The beginner classes start with breathing to awaken the body. The next focus is on the spine and pelvis. Seated on low stools, the class mobilizes the spine through a series of arching, curling, bending, twisting and spiraling movements. These same movement patterns are expanded to release the hip, knee, hamstring, quadriceps and so on, in all possible directions. Breath and movement stimulate the nervous system, open up the energy pathways and oxygenate the blood. The more advanced classes add endurance training to bodies prepared for more strenuous activities. The classes encompass not only sitting but also laying and standing positions.
The practice invigorates and re-educates the body to move with fluidity, relaxation and power.
