A GYROKINESIS® class starts by “awakening” the nervous system and promoting concentration within oneself. The pelvis and spine starts warming-up through simple and rhythmical moving patterns, expanding to all possible directions releasing hip, knees, hamstrings and upper body. This first part of the class is performed sitting on a stool, and aims to prepare and open up the body, creating a passageway for energy to begin flowing. Then, follows a series of more intense exercises performed on a mat, which strengthen the hamstrings, connect the upper with the lower body, encourage rotation and articulation of knee and hip joints, and lengthen the torso. The class ends with more “intense” abdominal exercises targeting the entire abdominal structure and by returning to an upright position, where participants restore energy balance to the body.
Some of the benefits you’ll experience joining a GYROKINESIS® class are: improvement of balance, coordination and neuromuscular control, increase of stamina with minimal impact to the joints, reduction of stress-levels, improvement of focus and clarity mind. GYROKINESIS® is not just an exercise, but a holistic experience, totally beneficial to every part of our being!
