TRAINER Angela Crowley
TIME 55 Minutes
Licensed Gyrotonic Trainer
In this master class, Gyrotonic Master Trainer Angela Crowley takes strategies from her 3-day "GYROTONIC® Applications for High Level Athletes" course and uses them in a Gyrotonic studio session with her client, Evan.
Evan has a background in elite tennis, is a runner, and travels a lot for work. The objectives of the session are to help him unwind his body from traveling fatigue and tightness and tune him up for his tennis and running activities. Angela also works with Evan to improve his athletic technique while providing support and comfort in his back.
By watching this class, you will learn how to become more adept at fulfilling the needs of an athlete in a Gyrotonic session. You will also learn how to meet the needs of experienced clients who are ready for a more physically challenging session.
