Jill was introduced to the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® in 1999 when she was a student at the State University of New York-Conservatory of Dance at Purchase College. As a young dance student in the conservatory setting, she knew this method could heal a hamstring injury that had plagued her for years.
The GYROTONIC® Method is a unique, holistic approach to movement. Some of the benefits of a regular practice include a healthier, more supple spine, increased range of motion, greater joint stability, improved agility and athletic performance, and a deep internal strength.
At Somatic Sanctuary, Jill will be leading GYROKINESIS® group lessons which gently awaken the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. All ages and fitness levels are welcomed.
Since being introduced to this system, Jill has taught at countless studios throughout the U.S. and abroad. She opened GYROTONIC® Santa Barbara in 2010 and is a GYROTONIC®, GYROKINESIS® and on the GYROTONER® Master Trainer. She continues to study regularly with Juliu Horvath, the creator of the method. Jill hopes to impart the love of movement to all her students.
