The GYROTONIC Expansion System

So you’d like to know more about the GYROTONIC Expansion System! 

A GYROKINESIS session uses fluid rhythmic motion in three planes of motion while seated on a stool, standing, or on the floor. Joints, muscle and connective tissue are asked to increase both their independence and coordination in all directions. With a relaxed and attentive frame of mind, the body can re-orient itself in space and re-coordinate neural firing patterns so that the parts are more available to the whole.

The official GYROTONIC website has short video clips (of amazingly tall, fluid, supple people!) that give a good overview of the movement system plus some written information and a bio of the system’s founder. While many people in the GYROTONIC world come from a dance background, it is most definitely not a pre-requisite (ahem, take me for example!) and the method is accessible to all movement abilities.

Salt Lake’s primary GYROTONIC studio is Movement Design Lab located in the Marmalade district. Right now, all group classes are virtual (several options a week) and several skilled instructors offer one-on-one social distanced private sessions using the equipment. http://movementdesignlab.com

I have nearly completed my GYROKINESIS apprenticeship (stool and mat version); the final certification process has been stalled by the pandemic. I am in the midst of my apprenticeship teaching with the GYROTONIC pulley tower. I have been a student of the practice since 2016 and apprentice teacher since 2019. Right now I offer one-on-one virtual movement therapy sessions and twice-weekly virtual group GYROKINESIS class (Tuesdays at 6:30 pm, Fridays at 9:00 am).
