“I hope to share the massive benefits I have experienced since discovering Gyrotonic, having tried various ways to try and rehabilitate back from injuries throughout my professional ballet career, I found Gyrotonic the most effective way to gain courage and confidence to move without pain again.


Often injuries can be a huge learning curve mentally as well as physically and you can come back stronger if you rehabilitate safely.

Every person that comes to my studio presents a different experence for me, I am thrilled so many people are starting to explore this system, it is teaching people more physical awareness and has enhanced so many of their lives.

To have Gyrotonic available to children that are involved in physical activity, be it any form of Sport or Dance, would be so valuable to maximizing their potential. I know, having trained so intensely from an early age, the minor strains and sprains suffered over the years can build into major injuries.

To have had the opportunity to have worked on the Gyrotonic Expansion System from an early age would have increased my strength and flexibility and probably saved me a lot of pain throughout my professional career, but would also have given me so much more confidence in my abilities.

My physical experience in the Gyrotonic Expansion System is a constant developing journey and enjoy that it to continues enhance other people’s lives”
