Donna Place of Long Beach, California, a master trainer in  Gyrotonics, will introduce her class, Gyrokinesis, on Saturday, May 7, from noon to 2 p.m. at On Balance Studio, 315 Uluniu Street, suite 201, in Kailua (upstairs from Cinnamon’s Restaurant).

Gyrokinesis exercise enables the body to go through exercises that address seven natural elements of spinal movement: forward, backward, left side, right side, left twist, right twist and circular, as well as other joint articulation.

This approach, according to Place, systematically and gently works the joints and muscles through rhythmic and undulating movements. These movements stimulate the body’s internal organs while different corresponding breathing patterns are integrated along with the movements.

Place has been a master trainer since 2001. She holds a BA in music and MA from Laban School of Movement and Dance. her studio, Peaceful Waves, is located in Long Beach.

Her class will also feature a live drummer. Cost: $40.

For more information or to sign up, call 262-2528.
