More Information

Summary:

In this video, Emma Kingston introduces some basic hand-opening exercises from her 3-day specialized course, "GYROTONIC® Applications for the Hands and Feet," and uses these during a Gyrotonic session with her client, Laura.

Clients often express discomfort with some of our classic weight-bearing positions because of mobility in their wrists. Opening the hands helps alleviate that discomfort so they can better perform the exercises that strengthen their bodies.

What you'll learn:

By watching this class, you will learn how different hand positions can alleviate weakness, tightness and discomfort in the upper body. 

You will also learn how improving the function of the hands can increase range of motion in the shoulder joints and create more freedom and mobility in the thoracic spine.

Movement sequences covered in this class:

Handle Units
Hamstrings
Strengthening the Upper Body on the Floor
Upper Body Openings and Final Integration
Unwinding
