Gyrotonic Teacher Training Course Starts in March




SPYRL is offering the Level 1 “pre-training” instructor course during the two weekends of March 9 to 11 and March 16 to 18 at its Highland Park studio. The training is the prerequisite first step to becoming a certified Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis instructor.

       Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods address the entire body, opening energy pathways, decompressing the spine, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. This unique approach coordinates movement, breath and mental focus to expand an individual physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Gyrotonic exercises use specialized equipment to allow a full 360-degree range of motion while Gyrokinesis exercises are completed on mats and stools. 

       Following successful completion of the initial course, prospective teachers advance to the Foundation Training course and then become apprentices and complete additional coursework prior to certification, says SPYRL lead instructor Amy Pena. The March course will meet both Fridays from noon to 7 p.m., and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekend days.

Cost: $1,075. Location: 1781 Green Bay Rd., Highland Park. For more information and to register, call 847-348-0822, email Info@spyrlchicago.com or visit spyrlchicago.com.
