NEW Gyrokinesis Classes, with Kerry Parker

The GYROKINESIS® Methodology is breaking the boundaries of typical muscular-focused fitness. By stimulating one’s basic senses and central nervous system, one is taught how to monitor and manage all of the fundamental systems of the body.

When: Thursdays, 6-7 pm and Sundays, 10:30—noon

Cost: $20 a class

Kerry first encountered the Gyrotonic system in 1988 as a young dancer in Seattle. After a career in the ballet world, dancing for Pacific Northwest Ballet and The Vienna State Opera Ballet, she moved to New York to investigate other forms of dance/movement which is when she re-encountered the Gyrotonic system. She found the organic nature of the movement to be profoundly rehabilitative as well as strengthening and satisfying on multiple levels-physically, emotionally and energetically. Kerry has been certified since 1999. Since teaching at Embody, she particularly enjoys the variety of learners, including those who have never danced. She also teaches all levels of ballet to all ages of people and dances with Deborah Jinza Thayer/Movement Architecture. She is a certified Gyrotonic instructor, with specialized training in Leg Extension Unit and Gyrotoner. She is also a Gyrokinesis apprentice.

Victoria's love affair with the GYROTONIC® method began in 2007, when she sought restorative, rehabilitative relief from the tension and pain created by her day job as a hair stylist. Her passion grew from there, as she deepened her knowledge of the work. "I loved how my body was getting stronger and more flexible, while having so much fun doing it." She shares that joy with her clients and especially loves the group atmosphere of GYROKINESIS®, where her playfulness make classes fun and accessible to all levels.
