Opening a studio was not in my plans. I just wanted to teach. But in 2018 when Miriam Barbosa, Master Trainer and one of the earliest students of founder Julia Horvath, decided to return to New York, that left five teachers in Columbia trained by her with nowhere to practice and teach. It was a leap of faith to open my first studio in Five Points. I am happy to say that four years later, and a just in time pre-COVID-19 move to my home studio in 2020, it was all worth it!!! I find joy in helping my clients discover themselves in new ways – everyone’s journey is different, but they are all positive.
Barbara, retired Healthcare Executive, practiced GYROTONIC® and Gyrokinesis® methods for 9 years before deciding to become a trainer and share her life changing experience. In popular culture she is classified as "elderly". As result of her practice, she has greater core strength, flexibility, and stamina than she had in her 40's. While she has experience teaching clients from 20's to 70's, her passion is teaching the GYROTONIC® method as a component of a healthy aging regime.
Sarah is a licensed GYROTONIC® trainer who has been practicing the GYROTONIC ® and Gyrokinesis® methods for 9 years.

She is also a recognized expert in the Alexander Technique. She works with a wide range of clients but has a special interest in performers, musicians, actors and attorneys who wish to enhance their physical presence.
