Gyrokiwha? Gyrokinesis. Maybe you’ve heard of it. Maybe not.
Hmmmm…..here’s what it says online: The Gyrokinesis Method is a movement method that addresses the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. It is an original and unique method, which coordinates movement, breath and mental focus.
Here’s my definition: Freakin’ miracle movement to keep an aerialist in the air for a really long time (duration and longevity). We will stay on the ground and go through some of this fabulous movement to help keep your body healthy no matter what you do….fly, florial, or mere mortal schtuff.
