Sara Simmons introduces us to the world of Gyrotonic® And Gyrokinesis® here at The Hundred Pilates Studio in Dubai | www.thehundred.ae.
GYROTONIC is very popular in the USA as well as across Europe and Asia. Unfortunately, it is not very well known into in the Middle East (yet!). As far as I know, I am currently the only certified teacher in the UAE.

Sessions are generally 55min for GYROTONIC and a bit longer for GYROKINESIS.
