Miriam Barbosa, one of the earliest students of founder Julia Horvath, brought the GYROTONIC® method to Columbia in 2003 as a professor at the University of South Carolina. The Movement Studio was created in 2018 to replace the space for her teachers when she returned to New York City.
We have all benefited from the depth and breath of Miriam's expertise. Our combined GYROTONIC® experience spans over 30 years, and we bring our unique life experiences to our teaching.

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. She is also dedicated to raising awareness of the existence of the GYROTONIC® method and how it provides benefits unlike any other form of exercise.
