What is the difference between the Gyrotonic & Gyrokinesis Methods?

// June 29, 2016

Both methods are based upon the same movement principles. The Gyrotonic Method utilizes specialized equipment to guide, assist, and challenge the exerciser. Gyrotonic classes are conducted as private sessions or in a small group class. The Gyrokinesis Method is practiced on a mat and chair, without equipment. Without the feedback and guidance of the equipment, participants in a Gyrokinesis class are more dependent on their own proprioception to explore movement sequences. Gyrokinesis classes are usually taught as a 1-1.5 hour group class.
