What is Gyrotonic®?
Gyrotonic® is a modality that uses multidimensional exercises, performed on a unique weighted-pulley based system, to help balance the body’s strength and flexibility. One of my clients described it as a “moving massage.” For more information please visit gyrotonic.com.
I’m completely inflexible. Will this work help me?
Absolutely! Because these modalities all work on increasing range of motion, I can guarantee you will feel more agile in your everyday life.
Do you offer group instruction?
I occasionally offer group pop up classes, so please sign up for my newsletter to stay in the loop. Group classes can also be arranged in your home or office.
Can I lose weight doing this work?
Yes and no. There are many factors that go into weight loss. I have had numerous clients lose weight while studying with me, partially because the awareness of their body increases and they start to make different lifestyle choices. Other times, clients simply look thinner because their posture and muscle tone has improved.

Why is your Personalized Movement Education 3 months?
Real and lasting change in your body takes time, especially if you’ve been experiencing pain/discomfort for a while. Most clients see and feel noticeable change within 3 months, but since every body is unique you might find you want more time to address your goals.
How often do we meet?
We will meet once a week for 12 weeks. If you can’t meet one week for any reason, you can reschedule. But, because consistency is important, sessions must be used within 15 weeks.
What happens in between sessions?
I’ll provide you with a customized sequence to practice. I’ll also keep track of your practice and be available to answer any questions you may have through a shared online movement log.
Will all my problems be solved by the end of the program?
Every body is different and will progress at various rates. This work is not a quick fix, but the changes you make are real and long lasting. I personally guarantee you will feel positive changes in your body by the end of the program.
What happens if I need to cancel or reschedule an appointment?
I understand that life happens and things come up. If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, I will rearrange with at least 24 hours notice. Sessions cancelled or rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice, will be charged the full payment fee.
Do you have a refund policy?
Although I am confident in this work, if you decide this program is not for you, you’ll be refunded the the remaining sessions.
