Semi-Private Group GYROTONIC® Classes at
Semi-Private Group Gyrotonic classes provide a cost-effective way for studio clients to experience the Gyrotonic Pulley Tower and Handle Unit. In our Semi-Private Group Gyrotonic Classes the instructor leads with verbal cues and physical demonstration. At GYROTONIC® LINY our Semi-Private Group Gyrotonic Classes are limited to 4 students which allows for greater personalized attention and a more focused environment in which to learn, find motivation and achieve one's goals. Since Gyrotonic exercise, with all of its applications, is at its core a movement conditioning system and a lifelong practice, Owner / Master Trainer Patricia Stewart has designed a class structure that allows the students to gain a solid foundation in the material. By following the guidelines and prerequisites, students will maximize the benefit from their time spent in the studio.
GYROTONIC® LINY Group Gyrotonic Class formats:
seed - This is an equipment-based group class (max. 4 students) that covers select exercises from the Gyrotonic Level 1 curriculum that follow the same order in each class. Students become proficient in the fundamental exercises and gain an understanding of Gyrotonic principles and terminology. In seed-level classes clients are given detailed instruction in, as well as time to practice, setting up the equipment, and class is modified according to the level of the participants.
root - This is an equipment-based class (max. 4 students) that incorporates additional Gyrotonic Level 1 exercises, as well as some standing work. There is some variation in class content to incorporate different movements within the exercise families. Students are given minimal support in setting up the equipment and can expect a quicker pace with more flow.
grow - This class is for more experienced students only. Students should have at least 6-12 months experience with Gyrotonic exercise. The format of this class varies and may include many Level 2 and other specialized exercises. It is mandatory for clients taking grow-level classes to be fluent in Pulley Tower / Handle Unit set up.
shine - Future offering based on demand. This class is an exploration of advanced concepts and choreography, with a focus on further deepening physical connections while moving at a challenging pace. Format varies, many advanced exercises. For experienced students only, by permission.
level 2 and beyond - Future offering based on demand. This class focuses on Gyrotonic Level 2 exercises and can include some other advanced exercises from specialized programs. By permission only.
homework (hw) series - This class covers a specific sequence of exercises done on a stool and on the floor and takes an in-depth look at important Gyrotonic principles. What you learn in this class can be used as a take-home routine to support your work in the studio.
All of our group classes are geared toward healthy curious movers. In the more advanced classes and workshops you will experience more challenging choreography, your orientation to the Tower and Handle Unit will vary throughout and/or there will be a focus on a certain theme or specific aspects of the exercise system. And, while we are thrilled to be able to offer a semi-private group movement experience on the Gyrotonic Pulley Tower / Handle Unit, we do suggest that all clients check in with private lessons from time to time.
Please note: Regardless of your fitness level and experience with other modalities, when starting up in our Semi-Private Group Gyrotonic classes it is particularly important to take time to learn to safely set yourself up on the equipment and be sure of your settings. And, if you are a new mover, just getting back into working out or have a chronic physical imbalance / pain or an injury, we do recommend that you take private sessions to begin.
Open Work Outs
FOR MORE EXPERIENCED CLIENTS ONLY, BY PERMISSION As our clients grow in their understanding of the methodology we encourage them to work towards a self-practice based on GYROTONIC® LINY programs. For details regarding the Open Work Out option, please ask in the studio.
If you can make it into the studio once a week for a private session or semi-private group Gyrotonic class, great!! After an hour of Gyrotonic exercise, clients typically experience reduced tension and find relief from everyday aches and pains. Many say that a Gyrotonic work out leaves you feeling taller, more in balance and as though you have given your body a massage from the inside out. Whether you are a new mover or someone who seeks to complement their current work out regimen or sports training, over time you will discover that your body will become more supple and you will develop better movement patterns.
If time and resources allow, training in the Gyrotonic method at least 2-3 times a week is ideal and can be transformational. Whether you use Gyrotonic exercise as a dynamic cross-training option to give yourself that edge, or whether Gyrotonic exercise becomes your main self-care regimen, with a regular committed practice you will come to have a new command over your body and mind. And, this often translates into a deeper more satisfying participation in all areas of your life.
