GYROKINESIS® class, two mornings a week in Makawao
Get your day off to a great start with a Gyrokinesis class.
Come to Mangala Yoga in Makawao on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 7:30 am for a one hour Gyrokinesis class.
Similar to the equipment work, most people when starting the floor work will consider it stretching exercises, they’ll feel their flexibility being challenged first. And that does make sense. You’ll need your physical and energetic channels to be open in order to find and feel the connections between the body segments, the core, the breathing and the world around you. But it really is only the beginning.
You wouldn’t want to just continuously get looser and looser, turning into a disconnected ragdoll. Once you’ve created opening and space for strength and energy to flow, you want to corral those lines of strength and energy channels back into each other and towards your seed center.
The strength you gain from Gyrokinesis classes derives from the constant interchange of the three kinds of muscular contraction: concentric, eccentric and isometric. While performing a movements you’ll be using one set of muscles concentrically to move your bones into the culmination position while using the opposing set of muscles to stabilize your movements. The isometrics really come in with the constant activation of, essentially, the entire body. Nothing gets time off and all the motions are full body. You’re not throwing your bones around all willy-nilly. You can consider the isometrics as the thread that weaves the concentric and eccentric motions into a single, continuous, purposeful exercise.
If you have a stool with no arms, please bring one. I do have access to three stools for those students who don't have one of their own, so please text me the evening before class to reserve a stool if you need one. Please also bring your own yoga mat.
