How is Pilates different from Gyrotonic®?
Both systems provide a mind-body experience and produce long lean muscles. Pilates is more linear, focused on core work and developing intrinsic stabilizing muscles that often need redevelopment. Playful in nature, Gyrotonic® movement is a more dimensional, circular system working from spiraling and wave-like motions. It also builds muscle strength, and focuses on fascia (connective tissue), joint mobility and the nervous system. Pilates and Gyrotonic® dovetail together beautifully.
How often should I do Pilates and/or a Gyrotonic® workout for maximum benefit?
In our experience, incorporating Pilates and/or Gyrotonic® to your routine 2-3 times a week will provide amazing results. Adding this to your yoga, barre, or Pilates mat practice along with some cardio is a recipe for looking and feeling your absolute best.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothing that you can move in. Socks are required on all equipment. Yoga socks (with grip) are highly recommended.
