Intro to Gyrokinesis® : Seniors Festival Special

This class can include up to 16 students. Preference given to students who have not taken a Gyrokinesis® class with us before.

I know I know… what on earth is Gyrokinesis®??  

Well, come along to meet our tutor, Maurizio and find out more and have a go at this newest exercise class at NSCC. It’s a highly adaptive class, great for all bodies and starting fitness levels, to maintain and improve mobility and strength. But be warned, just because most of it is done in a chair, doesn’t mean it’s easy!

The Gyrokinesis® Method is a movement method that addresses the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. It is an original and unique method, which coordinates movement, breath and mental focus.

GYROKINESIS® classes can be adapted to fit anyone's ability. People from all walks of life take Gyrokinesis classes, including accomplished athletes, fitness enthusiasts, senior citizens, and people recovering from an injury or dealing with a disability. By the end of a Gyrokinesis session, one's entire system is awakened and brought into greater balance. Focus on the breath stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, resulting in a sense of calm, well-being and mental clarity.

The Gyrokinesis® Method is practiced on a mat and chair, without equipment. Without the feedback and guidance of equipment, participants in a Gyrokinesis® class are more dependent on their own proprioception to explore movement sequences.
