You may be wondering what GYROKINESIS® is. It is an exercise method created by Juliu Horvath, formerly ballet dancer, incorporating basic principles of various movements from yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and Tai Chi.  Rhythmical rippling movements with matching breathing patterns performed sitting on a chair, lying on the floor, or standing, work gently on the joints and muscles.  It helps to innervate the nervous system, open up the energy passage through the body and oxygenate the blood.  Through Gyrokinesis exercises, not only can you learn to move your body more freely and flexibly but also enjoy the revitalising energy, peace of mind and a sense of well-being that generate from your body.

When string instruments are exposed to air, humidity and temperature affect the pitch so they must be tuned before you start playing.  Likewise, your body becomes distorted and imbalanced by your daily habits, job specific movements and gravity.  GYROKINESIS can help you release the strain and restore your body alignment so that you can start afresh the next day in a good condition and repeat the same movements over again.

In my class, I aim to reduce muscle tension and bring back mobility to stiff joints by stretching out and loosening up and taking deep breaths to unwind the body to its neutral position and develop enough durability to be able to repeat same actions again the next day.

The class consists of a mix of various training exercises to improve your posture, alignment, flexibility, range of motion core strength and overall coordination.  The intensity level of class can vary depending on participants and I would be delighted to incorporate your requests in class and sharing tips to take home, considering your individual body requirements and conditions on the day also.

Hopefully by the end of class you will feel refreshed like after a nice dip in a hot spring at the end of a long hard day!

Please refer to the class schedule for regular group classes at Pilates Lab Daikanyama.

It is a group session class in principle, but I would also be happy to do a private class upon request so please feel free to contact me.
