GYROKINESIS® and GYROKINESIS®-GentleGYROKINESIS® is a seated and mat-based movement class upon which the exercises on the GYROTONIC® Pulley Tower were based. Originally called “Yoga for Dancers”, postures are not held for long periods of time but are smoothly and harmoniously connected through the use of breath, making exercises appear and feel more like a dance and swimming than like traditional yoga. Our GYROKINESIS®-Gentle class is seated only for easy access to all abilities, and as a terrific foundation to work on the Pulley Towers.
