What Is Gyrotonic®?

The Gyrotonic® Method uses specialized equipment that permits one to move with support and resistance. Gyrotonic® exercise sequences are intended to increase the functional capacity of the entire organism in a harmonious way.

Can I Do Pilates If I Have An Injury?

The short answer is yes Pilates can help with recovery from many injuries. But for that to occur we first need to know about your injury so we may guide you towards the appropriate session. If you’re injured, we kindly request you speak with us before signing up for a class or session. We will guide you to an appropriate class and ensure you are working with an instructor who is trained to handle your specific injury. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may need to do private sessions to begin.
