GYROKINESIS® class falls under the larger umbrella of GYROTONIC® exercise. Both the Gyrokinesis and Gyrotonic methods derived and evolved in part from yoga, Tai Chi, dance, gymnastics, and swimming, although it is different from any of these. In this technique, great emphasis is placed on increasing the mobility of the spine through a specific “yawning” quality of movement. Movements are continuous and fluid often with circular or figure eight patterns. Gyrokinesis work helps mobilize and create space in all the joints of the body while increasing strength and stamina. The Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods share the same technique and philosophy of movement. The difference is that while the Gyrotonic method uses larger pieces of equipment such as the Gyrotonic Tower, Jump Stretch Board, or Archway, Gyrokinesis work is done with minimal equipment, either on a stool, mat, or standing.
