Gyrotonic® & Gyrokinesis®
GYROTONIC® Exercise is a unique, holistic approach to movement. I offer 1-on-1 training and rehab sessions for different bodies, group classes, pre-trainer courses, and Workshops with invited Master Teachers.
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is a unique, holistic approach to movement. Some of the benefits of a regular Gyrotonic practice include a healthier, more supple spine, increased range of motion, greater joint stability, improved agility and athletic performance and a deep internal strength.
The GYROTONIC® Method
With Gyrotonic exercises, each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility. The GYROTONIC® Method utilizes specialized equipment to guide, assist and challenge the exerciser.
People from all walks of life take GYROTONIC® classes, including fitness enthusiasts, senior citizens, accomplished athletes and people recovering from an injury or living with a disability. Gyrotonic exercises help athletes improve their performance and rehabilitation clients recover more quickly and fully post injury.
The GYROKINESIS® Method is practiced on a mat and chair without equipment. Without the feedback and guidance of equipment, participants in a Gyrokinesis class are more dependent on their own proprioception to explore movement sequences.
Choosing to work with me
Hong Kong is fortunate to have a vibrant Gyrotonic & Gyrokinesis community. If you are searching for a trainer / studio to work with, there are several factors to consider.
With “experience” you should consider both their hands-on experience, as well as professional development. I have been teaching professionally for more than a decade; this brings awareness to working with bodies with different needs, from training for peak performance as a dancer to rehab after… just sitting in front of a screen for too long!
After licensed as a trainer, GYROTONIC® has a branching tree of progressions and specialties. These bring depth and varieties to the program, and knowledge about what different clients need, or how to work safely and effectively with with particular conditions. The following chart shows my journey.
If you are working with/through pain and discomfort, we can complement the Gyrotonic training with the therapeutic Vascular Facilitation Process.
In addition to GYROTONIC® pulley towers, the following specialty equipment are available at our studio:

Eli was my Tango teacher since 2002, my Gyrotonic teacher since 2012, and mentor in my professional career. She is an excellent teacher! Her pedagogy is extraordinary, making me reach the peak of my physical performance.
Cecilia Gonzalez Masse, professional dancer & personal trainer
I have been taking Gyrotonic classes with Eli for years, and I always gain new awareness on blind spots of my body whenever I practice with Eli. She has also shared VFP with me on several occasions. It really calms down my nervous system and move from a deeper layer of the body. I usually feel lighter after receiving VFP.
