What does a GYROTONIC session involve?


At your first session you will be asked to provide your instructor with details of any physical injuries or medical problems that will enable your Gyrotonic instructor to customise your session to suit your specific needs. 


Your Gyrotonic instructor will explain the principles of the system and introduce you to some basic movements. 

During the session your instructor will verbally guide you as well as physically assist you through each movement to allow you to feel the full benefits of the Gyrotonic Expansion System.


Each session is individually tailored to your own personal needs and you will work within your own physical capabilities.
