A Gyrokinesis Class on the Chair for Every Body

A GYROKINESIS® Class on the Chair for Every Body, with Gina Muensterkoetter

We are excited to release the first-ever GYROKINESIS® Master Class video!

In this video, Gina Muensterkoetter guides you through movement sequences that focus on the decompression of the lumbar spine to reverse the negative effects of long hours of sitting at the computer and other activities that contribute to lumbar compression.

** This is an excellent format you can teach as a virtual/online Gyrokinesis class.
It is easy to follow and accessible to a wide range of clients. **

What you will learn:

•  Easy-to-follow sequences that can be practiced as a complete class — or broken into sections and integrated into a Gyrotonic session or a Gyrokinesis Level 1 class.

•  How to use mini sequences and layering to find the individual movement comfort zone and increase the range of motion in a gentle, consistent way

•  How to use pulsations to achieve decompression and uprightness in the spine.

How you can use this material in your classes:

•  This simplified, systematic approach to a Gyrokinesis class is suitable for beginners, for clients who need a more therapeutic approach, for clients who favor the chair over floor exercises, and for experienced clients who wish to revisit the healing power of the Gyrokinesis principles with ease and comfort.

•  This class format is useful as an online class, a private session, a group class or as a preparation for a class on any of the GYROTONIC® equipment.
