Embody Minneapolis offers full-service GYROTONIC® exercise
and GYROKINESIS® exercise with all the newest equipment.
Embody Minneapolis inspires people of all ages and fitness levels to explore and discover our greatest potential through the GYROTONIC Method. We believe that be embodied is to connect to ourselves and the world, so we can access, experience and create the best life has to offer.
The Gyrotonic method is a unique movement practice with roots in Yoga, Tai Chi and dance. Gyrotonic exercise sequences performed on equipment, are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions and corresponding breath. With Gyrotonic exercises, each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility.
Regular Gyrotonic practice brings many benefits to all ages and fitness levels. It has been found to lift chronic pain and improve flexibility range of motion, balance, strength and energy.
Gyrotonic classes can be adapted to fit anyone’s ability. The Gyrotonic method is practiced by people from all walks of life, including accomplished athletes and dancers, college students, baby boomers, senior citizens, and people with disabilities.
Embody Minneapolis was born of Susan Gaines’s passionate belief that to be embodied — to be fully in one’s own skin — is to be fully alive: joyful, energized, graceful and strong.
All instructors share Embody's vision and are dedicated to tailoring each session for your specific needs.
