Intro to Gyrokinesis: Exploring Spirals with Francesca
February 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis is a wonderful way to decompress your spine and sustain freedom of movement in multiple directions, at various speeds, and under different weight bearing loads. To realize your movement potential it’s important to add other types of multidimensional movements to your repertoire, including spiraling of your spine, side bending (lateral flexion) and rotating your spine and rib cage. The core principle underlying Gyrotonic exercise is a movement that creates circles, spirals, and undulation curves, these natural movements improve muscle strength and flexibility along with breathing and collaborative muscle contraction that help stretch each area of the body. This workshop will explore the many ways that spirals exist in the body, not only from a static position but how we create spirals in the body while moving through space. Unlike standard twisting, a two-dimensional movement that happens in one plane (the transverse), spiraling is a three-dimensional motion that’s repeated in a rhythmic manner. You circle your spine around and actively lengthen it upward, and then you let it recoil to its initial length. As you repeat these actions, you’ll promote healthy fascia (connective tissue) in your back and shoulders, between your abdominal muscles, and all around your ribs.
