I had such a wonderful experience at Body Evolution doing a gyrotonic class."I had such a wonderful experience at Body Evolution doing a gyrotonic class. It was a great, safe, comfortable, and informative way to be reintroduced into the work. I'm an Olympic athlete and I really appreciated the visualization used and the understanding of the body. Allison was great!"

GYROKINESIS®GYROKINESIS® is a seated and mat–based movement class upon which the exercises on the GYROTONIC Pulley Tower were based. Originally called “Yoga for Dancers”, postures are not held for long periods of time but are smoothly and harmoniously connected through the use of breath, making exercises appear and feel more like a dance and swimming than like traditional yoga.
