Program Overview

In this program students learn to conduct two in-depth Gyrokinesis class formats. The 138 hour program is composed of four sequential courses. (See course information below.) Students typically begin teaching the Gyrokinesis Method in the role of “apprentice” within 3 months after beginning the program. It takes approximately 1 year to complete the full program and become a certified Gyrokinesis Trainer.
