ABOUT THE GYROKINESIS® METHOD
GYROKINESIS® methodology contains similar elements also found in yoga and tai chi, as well as Western traditions of dance, gymnastics and swimming, but is not derived from these other modalities. A GYROKINESIS® sequence begins on a chair with a gentle warm up to awaken the senses, and stimulate the nervous system. This is followed by a series of fluid spinal motions which increase range of motion, and prepare the body to explore more complex movements with agility, and ease. The sequence continues on the floor with exercises that expand on the spinal motions, gradually adding more complex sequences, incorporating more movements of the hips, shoulders, hands and feet. The floor exercises are followed by a rhythmic standing incorporates a series of rhythmic movements that explore all planes of motion to systematically and gently open the joints and awaken the muscles of the body. Specific breathing patterns stimulate the nervous system and combined with gentle repetitions of movement, increase cardiovascular conditioning. Because the method offers a progression of movement exercises, it provides challenges for the beginning mover as well as the athlete, making the work accessible to all body types and physical conditions. After a session, the participant feels light and rejuvenated.
