Gyrotonic Applications for Martial Arts, with Susan Gaines


Join us for an exploration of the Korean martial art, Tae Kwon Do, through the lens of the Gyrotonic method. We will break down kicks and hand techniques, using the Gyrotonic pulley tower.  This is a class is best for advanced Gyrotonic movers, who also want to feel the exhilaration of kicking and punching.  We will incorporate some target practice and putting together some sparring combinations.

When Susan first encountered the GYROTONIC® method more than a decade ago, she knew she’d found something deeply transformative and healing. She was a third degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and while the martial art was empowering, it was also hard on her body, creating imbalances and tension. She found the Gyrotonic methodology to be one of the most intelligent, intuitive systems she’d encountered. She believes that each of us is capable of profound grace and deep connection to our own bodies.
