What inspired you to become a GYROTONIC teacher?
Because of my scoliosis and the pain and limitations it gives me, I started with the GYROTONIC® method. This helped me so much to relieve the discomfort and understand my body better. That’s why I wanted to help other people through this amazing method.
How do you modify exercises for clients with injuries or limitations?
Our session is private and we take all the time for you to feel comfortable and pain free. There are no other distractions, and we use props, space and time to make sure your injury or limitation is taken care of in a gentle way.
