What Is GYROTONIC® ?
The GYROTONIC® method is an original, and unique movement method that enables simultaneous lengthening and strengthening of muscles, stimulates circulation, and enhances joint mobility and coordination. Since most injuries occur in the joints and their surrounding structures, you might wonder why exercise systems often only concentrate on mobilizing the joints on two planes of movement. With GYROTONIC® movement you will focus on every aspect of the joint, making them flexible, resilient, moist, and capable of easily supporting and responding to whatever activity or impact life offers.
Samantha Anton was first introduced to the GYROTONIC® Expansion System by Master Trainer Debra Rose in 2009 as a Dance Major with Alonzo King LINES Ballet at Dominican University of California. After a year of working in this system, she found many of her injuries from dancing were not only relieved, but replaced with strength and flexibility that improved her contemporary ballet technique. This intensive training gave her a greater understanding of her own body and the correct way in which to work.
Being the youngest dancer in the program to become certified, Samantha joined Marin GYROTONIC® and Spiral Studio upon certification in 2011.
In 2013, Samantha moved her practice to San Francisco to teach at both The Seed Center and San Francisco GYROTONIC® where she continues to bring this valuable knowledge from both dancing and GYROTONIC® to her clients.
