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.
