GYROKINESIS® Essentials Part 1: A Journey of Spinal Motions

  • A Body of Work 569 Ruger Street San Francisco, CA, 94129 United States (map)

This 3-day course is a dynamic and systematic approach to preparing the spine and nervous system for the full formats featured in GYROKINESIS® Level 1. Three class formats are presented:

Program 1: Decompression of the lumbar spine
Program 2: Decompression of the thoracic spine
Program 3: Decompression of the cervical spine

Each format was developed for a 60-to-90 minute class and can be presented either as a progression or independently. This course satisfies continuing education and update requirements for certified GYROKINESIS® instructors as well as GYROTONIC® instructors who are also certified in GYROKINESIS®.

 These are new GYROKINESIS® formats and they explore three different aspects of spinal motions - lumbar, thoracic, and cervical. The classes still follow the basic sequencing -  Awakening of the Senses, Spinal Motions, and either standing or floor work - but the stimulation to the nervous system is more gentle and gradual. The class formats presented in the GYROKINESIS® Essentials course are  perfect for beginner level students and also for experienced people who enjoy deepening the work. This approach allows us to discover more about the internal process of elongating the spine and how to best prepare our bodies for energetic awakenings. The formats also work beautifully as a warm-up for private sessions or group classes and they increase understanding of the basic principles of the GYROTONIC® Method.
