Gyrotonic® Pre-Training

Gyrotonic® Pre-Training

This 30-hr Gyrotonic® Pre-Training course is the prerequisite for Gyrotonic® Foundation course.

Gyrotonic® from the word “gyro” (meaning ring, spiral or circle) and “tonic” (to tone or invigorate), is a movement system devised to increase range of motion, coordination, and strength by performing circular and rotational movements. Based on the principles of swimming, ballet, yoga and qi gong it works the body as an integrated whole, exercising the musculature of the body while mobilizing and articulating the joints. The movement patterns are natural, fluid and organic. Many high level athletes such as golfers and dancers use this as their primary source of physical training.

The purpose of the Gyrotonic® Pre-Training course is to provide a foundational understanding of the Gyrotonic® level 1 exercises and prepare students physically for the Gyrotonic® Level 1 Foundation Course. During this course students focus on gaining experience, and developing a personal understanding of the exercises on the Pre-Training Course exercise list.
