A typical Gyrokinesis® class begins with participants practicing self-massage and simple breathing patterns, something Juliu Horvath has named, “Awakening of the Senses.” Then the spine and pelvis are engaged through simple exercises: while seated on low stools, participants mobilize 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: front, back, twisting and turning.
The corresponding breathing patterns executed during every movement stimulate the nervous system, open up the energy pathways and oxygenate the blood.
Classes are usually run as workshops or as a series of classes with Sarah Duley. Stools and mats are provided.
