GYROKINESIS® is the heart and soul of the GYROTONIC® method.


GYROKINESIS is a unique blend of three of Laura's favorite disciplines: Kundalini Yoga, dance and Chi Kung. This flowing "Yoga in Motion" practice is designed to awaken your senses, help you move energy, mobilize your spine, lengthen your muscles, build strength without bulk, and find beauty, grace and ease in movement. The practice has flowing movements combined with the breath and a focused intention on freeing, cultivating and moving life force energy (chi or prana) along with creating more spaciousness within the body, joints and muscles and moving with grace and ease. 

The first part of a GYROKINESIS session is generally taught seated on stools (although it can be adapted to begin on the floor). The stools allow for ease in the hips as we mobilize our spines, shoulders, and legs. GYROKINESIS sessions gently work the entire body, opening energetic pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. At Kona Pilates, we refer to this seated stool work as "Gentle GYROKINESIS". The second part (Intermediate GYROKINESIS) is more challenging and is performed kneeling, sitting, standing or laying on a mat for a full workout that allows you to move every part of your body. An experience not to be missed!  

GYROKINESIS is taught in Private and Duet lessons (and can be incorporated into your regular sessions with us). It is also taught as a group class. All levels with a reasonable amount of fitness are welcome.

GYROTONIC® exercise is an invitation to move, breathe and expand into your own true wholeness. The system calms yet invigorates your mind, body and spirit so that you are experiencing exercise that feels uplifting, freeing and organic. In other words, you are experiencing....
