Yoga Ballet In this class movement patterns and principles of the GYROKINESIS® Method are applied to the needs of dancers. The GYROKINESIS® Method, created by Juliu Horvath, synchronizes breath and movement patterns that curve, expand, spiral and undulate while creating a unique flow. The "expressive" movement qualities of dance, combined with flowing sequences of movement will both stretch and strengthen the body, mobilize the spine and joints, and release tension, resulting in a feeling of rejuvenation, increased vitality and well-being. This class is suitable for all levels. Christine is a certified and licensed GYROKINESIS® teacher who recently retired from an international ballet career. Her practice of the GYROKINESIS® Method over many years has had a major impact on both helping her skills as a dancer and in injury prevention. Her aim is to encourage people of different ages and backgrounds to enjoy the freedom of movement and better health.
