This training runs form 16 September until 16 December 2019.

The GYROKINESIS method combines principles of yoga, dance and somatics. The holistic approach connects body and mind and opens the meridians of the body so that the energy can travel from a strong and subtle centre. Through continuous round and spiraled movement, initiated by breath and centre, GYROKINESIS stimulates the nervous system, places the joints and creates support in the whole range of motion and improves flexibility. The rhythmic use of breath and the idea of a constant flow creates musicality, a sense of dancing and stamina. Dance professionals as well as athletes all over the world use this method to refine their coordination. Besides, GYROKINESIS is also being used in physiotherapy and can be adapted easily to all body types and age groups.
