What inspired you to develop this course?
As a former gymnast and dancer, I recognized the Gyrotonic Method as an unprecedented system for training. At that time, I often heard people say that the Gyrotonic Method was nice, but not really a workout. However, I was successfully training a wide range of athletes using the technique, and I was inspired to share my insights.
Who is this course intended for, and why should someone take the course?
This course is to help prepare any Gyrotonic trainer who has an interest in working with athletes. The course assists teachers with language and strategies of application as well as introducing fun refreshing and challenging exercises for advanced students. Certified Level I students of all levels and experience are welcome
“I found the course, Rehabilitation of Elite Athletes, delivered by Angela, to be one of the most important courses ever designed for Gyrotonic instructors who have a desire to work with elite athletes. Not only has the course given me so much confidence to work with the athletes I’m involved with here in Brisbane Australia, it has also given me the confidence to stand up for what we all believe to be true in breaking down barriers in terms of effort, inefficiency of movement and injury prevention. This will help athletes understand how to best articulate, distribute force and share the
physical loads on their bodies through time and space.”

“I would like to express my gratitude for everything you have taught me over the past 15 years. Working with, and next to, you has given me such a different view to the whole body approach, and I believe this has made a huge contribution to my consistent success on the professional triathlon circuit. I was able to race at the top of the International Xterra Off-Road Triathlon Tour for years, stay injury free and recover very quickly through the knowledge you passed on to me. Pilates, GYROTONIC® and Feldenkrais have been instrumental in my physical & emotional wellbeing over the years, and I will continue to draw from that knowledge. Thanks again.’’
