Blending elements of Yoga,
Tai Chi and Dance, GYROKINESIS® works the spine,
shoulders and lower body in gentle circular movements in sitting, laying
and standing positions. It releases tension and chronic stiffness and
keeps you moving. A single class will relieve muscle stress, leaving you
feeling invigorated and more aware of your whole body. GYROKINESIS®
on a regular basis will revitalize your body’s natural energy, strengthen
your core, increase flexibility and help create an overall sense of well-being.
