Matoaka Class

The GYROKINESIS® Method is a movement system that enables individuals to gain more awareness of their body in space. This allows for increased freedom of movement through guidance in a series of exercises. These exercises use elements of breath, increasing blood flow in the body and attention to the posture of one's body. This class will serve as an introduction to GYROKINESIS® movement, with no prior experience required. Equipment required is a chair or stool with no wheels, on which you can sit on with planted feet. Maz is a certified GYROKINESIS® apprentice and has been practicing GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® for 5 years. Her professional dance background introduced her to the GYROKINESIS® method to gain a deeper understanding of her body, and build strength. At William & Mary, Maz is continuing her ongoing exploration of the human body with a degree in Kinesiology & Health Sciences.
