Someone asked me recently: Why do you do Gyrotonic?
Honestly, it's a great question. With so many different kinds of exercise out there, why would anyone choose Gyrotonic? Or Pilates? The answer to that question is a simple one. In my 35 years of movement experience, I've found that Pilates and Gyro have been instrumental in creating my best self (and the best self for my clients). These movement systems empower people to be in their body and move intelligently. That's the most important. Gyrotonic and Pilates not only are fun to do, but they educate the body to move smarter and move safer. This ultimately prevents over-stressed muscles, injury and delays the aging process to some extent. What I mean is that the alignment that you learn in Pilates and Gyro lasts beyond the classroom. When you play tennis, or lift boxes in your garage, or go dancing, your body will remember what it learned, and you'll be better for it.
How long does it take to educate the body?
It's going to vary from individual to individual (and will depend heavily on your exercise history)... in general, I recommend aiming for 2-3x classes per week for 5-6months. I challenge you to work with me, and the MBC staff, to find your best self. To get started, we can work together to evaluate your current fitness level and design a personalized workout plan.
