90 Minute Gyrokinesis® Class

with Lu Yim

In this class we will utilize the Gyrotonic tower, and other tools, to discover the energy, direction and flow found within the "clasped loops" sequence.

We will move intentionally and with flow to deepen our understanding and sensation of resistance (lines of force) in the body, to awaken the body.

Some previous knowledge of Gyrokinesis recommended but not required.

Hilary Cartwright 3 Day Intensivewww.hilarycartwright.com

Hilary Cartwright, co-founder of the original "White Cloud" Gyrotonic® studio, returns to Portland for a three day course in her Yoga Narada™. Each morning a three hour class will be followed by a lunch break and an afternoon session, to review and explore details and variations within the work. In addition to Hilary's personal attention during class and in the afternoon study sessions, we will have Magali Messac, founder of Seattle Gyrotonic, as a guide for individual adjustments and encouragement.

Formerly known as "Hilary Cartwright's Yoga for Dancers," Yoga Narada's new name reflects the growing number of non-dancers who find this yoga accessible and transformative.

This workshop is suitable for anyone from beginners to movement professionals, including apprentices in Hilary's newly formed Yoga Narada™ training program.
