Most of us experience life almost outside the body, with very little sense of where we are in space (proprioception) and our own inner map (interoception). Through Classical Pilates and other stretching and functional exercises we connect into the body and find our personal strength: physical, emotional and spiritual, through conscious movement!

Gyrokinesis® is a method of movement created by Juliu Horvath, originally called “Yoga for Dancers.” The entire body is opened, including pathways of energy through stimulating the nervous system and increasing range of motion in the joints and the fascia.  The sequences are rhythmic, flowing and circular, coordinating breath with the movement in a physiologically natural way.  The practice is done on a mat and a chair without equipment.

Jazz dance from the 20s, 30s and 40s was the authentic expression of an oppressed people. Finding freedom in the body when there was no true freedom in their life conditions, African-Americans gave us this way to move that connects viscerally to jazz music – music that was born to make you dance to the swing beat of your heart, the center of your being.
