GYROKINESIS​® Foundation

GYROKINESIS​® Foundation

7 July

18 July
12 days GYROKINESIS foundation with MT Jackson Kellogg.

The Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods are complementary exercise methods that fall under one umbrella- the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®.

Both methods were developed by Juliu Horvath, an ethnic Hungarian, professional dancer from Romania. Horvath suffered a series of debilitating injuries during his dance career, and began developing what are now known as the Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis Methods as a way to heal himself and regain his strength and agility.

Gyrotonic exercises are performed on custom-designed Gyrotonic equipment, whereas Gyrokinesis exercises are performed on a mat and chair. Both Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breath. 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.
Since the thirty plus years since Horvath began developing the Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods, the Gyrotonic Expansion System has grown to include a global community of over 10,500 Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis Trainers teaching in 52 countries.

The Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods are both highly adaptable, making them accessible to everyone, regardless of age or physical ability. Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis students live in many parts of the world, and come from all walks of life. Accomplished athletes and dancers, college students, baby boomers, senior citizens, and people with disabilities-many have become devoted practicioners of Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis exercise.

The courses are: GYROKINESIS​® Lotus Blossom 1 & GYROKINESIS​® Foundation.
They will be conducted right next to each other. Students can however register for each course individually.

Jackson Kellogg

Jackson was born in the northwest of the United States where he lived until the age of 15. He then moved to New York where he did the bulk of his high school and University education. Jackson began his career teaching the Gyrotonic methodology directly after finishing University. He lived for a brief period in Boulder-Colorado and for two years in Miami-Florida gaining experience as a teacher and completing many of the basic Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis educational courses. In 2006 he moved back to New York to work at Gyrotonic Manhattan, where he developed himself and others through the support of a vast New York city community. In 2010 he began his international teaching career, which spanned many countries across Europe and Asia, and at that time he also earned the title of Master Trainer in both the Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods. Since 2013 he has had the great joy to demonstrate for the founder Juliu Horvath in his educational courses. He also has modeled for many of the educational DVD’s the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®. has released which are included as part of the teacher training process. In addition, he has also been very privileged to assist Juliu Horvath in re-organizing and developing the educational material on such pieces of equipment as the Archway and the Jumping Stretching Board. He now resides in Athens, Greece. Jackson is able to conduct all of the teacher training courses in both the Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis educational programs and he regularly travels internationally to teach.
