Blossoming Lotus Gyrotonic is licensed as a "Specialty Outpatient Facility for Somatic-based Movement Education":
masks required to enter studio, shoes removed, hand washing, temp check, socks required in studio, equipment socially distanced & sanitized between sessions. Medical grade HEPA filtration. Not feeling well? Stay home!
Each session at Blossoming Lotus Gyrotonic revolves around you: your needs, your goals, helping you create joy & freedom of movement while reducing stress & discomfort.
Our lessons are centered on sensation (feel the weight of the handles), embodiment (feeling a concept such as lengthening in your body) and Somatic-based movement.
An embodiment practice is a method of using the unique sensations of our body as a tool to develop awareness, stay present, self-regulate, feel whole, find balance, feel connected, know ourself, love ourself and be empowered.
Somatic movement is a field within bodywork and movement education where each movement is performed consciously with the intention of enhancing or reestablishing the mind-body connection to correct dysfunctional movement patterns (also known as neuro muscular re-education).
In other words, we provide the owners manual for how your body ideally works! Things like core activation, alignment, correct movement, stretching what's tight, strengthening what's weak, finding balance. Let us help you do all the things you've been yearning to do! If you have ever done a form of exercise wondering what exactly you are doing and why.... you weren't doing a sensation, embodiment, or somatic form of movement.
Come feel for yourself the difference in YOUR body.
After my head injury I received months of physical therapy. Eventually my insurance stopped approving visits I was released from PT even though I was still struggling with balance, gait, bladder leakage, and back pain. I am so grateful for my sessions with Laura! She has helped me regain the awareness and mobility of my feet, the felt sense of proper gait (and knowledge of how to correct it), what my deep core actually IS and how to properly engage it (in my case, wake it up again). And as a result my low back and hip pain is gone, my balance continues to improve, and she was even able to help me strengthen my pelvic floor and eliminate my bladder leakage problem. She and her husband Steve are truly Movement EDUCATORS. I am a Physicians Assistant and their knowledge and expertise, along with their warmth, sense of humor, and ability to convey concepts in a way that makes sense, is a true art. If you've had an injury, or you would just like to be in better tune with your body to ensure you're doing exercises correctly, give yourself the gift of sessions at Blossoming Lotus Gyrotonic.
As Laura often says, "Suffering is optional. Please don't chose that option."
Today’s the day to start a practice. Begin changing your body through a series of mindful Gyrotonic movements, intended to bring about consciousness, mobility, improved posture and overall strength. In every lesson at Blossoming Lotus Gyrotonic we work this practice to bring balance to your physical structure (muscles, joints, fascia) as well as your mind. Gyrotonic lessons are taught in Private Lessons to begin. Or, bring a friend or family member for a Semi-Private Lesson. After you've gained experience, and are cleared from your physician, we offer cost effective Trio Lessons (capped at three people) to ensure proper technique and execution. All Trios members are "matched" with common goals, level of physicality, and more. The Gyrotonic Method is for all levels of movers, from those healing from an injury or surgery to those looking to optimize athletic endeavors. Our instructor/therapists will know your name. You will be nurtured. Come experience the feeling of a an amazing somatic-based movement experience. Our clients tell us they feel their whole body engaged and working, AND the exercises feel soooo good - like they've received a massage! You'll wonder why more people haven't discovered The Gyrotonic Method yet.
We like to say, "We pick up where physical therapy left off (or never happened)." As Movement Therapists and Educators, we offer a variety of additional Holistic Therapies for those desiring even more personalized care on the road to wellness and freedom to live a life without pain. Together, with your therapist/instructor, you will be on the road to improved health and wellness.
Today is the day to begin!
BENEFITS of Gyrotonic Exercise:
Life in our modern society places a huge amount of daily stress on our bodies. This leads to feeling chronically stiff, carrying unnecessary tension, developing postural imbalances that make us more susceptible to injury, or we’re stuck behind a desk or in a car all day lacking the organic movement that our bodies instinctively crave to stay healthy, flourish & thrive.
Sessions at Blossoming Lotus GYROTONIC® give your body the organic movement it craves to flourish and thrive through the power and organic nature of The GYROTONIC® Method. This method is a somatic-based postural exercise system that re-educates the body to move with fluidity, ease and strength. Former dancer and creator of the work, Juliu Horvath, struggled with chronic pain as a result from his professional dance career, and thus created GYROTONIC® exercise to heal his injuries and to help others to do the same.
Although originating in the dance community over 35 years ago, GYROTONIC® exercise is accessible to everyone. This system gently and effectively works the entire body through spiraling, circular, and rhythmic movements with corresponding breathing patterns, and is designed to complement whatever you love doing:
While The GYROTONIC® Method utilizes specialized equipment, The GYROKINESIS® Method offers all the same benefits and only requires a stool, mat and you!
We tax our bodies every day, more than we realize. We need to give back to our bodies, strengthen our mind/body connection, and bring restoration to ourselves. How? The answer is through GYROTONIC® Exercise!
We are happy to offer Private, Semi Private and Trio Lessons in the GYROTONIC® Method.
Whether your idea of flourishing and thriving is becoming a Healthier version of yourself, returning to full function from an injury or surgery, or it's Transforming the lives of others by becoming a certified Gyrotonic trainer...sessions at Blossoming Lotus GYROTONIC® will help you Unleash YOUR Potential to Flourish!
We believe that the environment that one exercises and transforms their body in is JUST as important as the exercise choice and the instructor. Our peaceful private studio environment is thoughtfully designed for you to Flourish and Thrive in!
With three Pulley Tower/Handle Units, the complete array of Specialized equipment, and highly trained and experience therapists/instructors...we have the tools to help you Unleash YOUR Potential to Flourish in our private and semi-private lessons.
We pride ourselves on being knowledgeable about most "conditions" that could be presented by our clients. We are highly trained medical therapists who understand pain, dysfunction, injury, and illness (including TBI and other neurological issues).

"Suffering from back pain for most of my life, I'm always looking for alternative methods to minimize my discomfort. Laura and Steve have made a major contribution to achieving that goal. Their knowledge of anatomy, sense of compassion, level of enthusiasm and personalized approach make every session rewarding. Doesn't matter if it's a trio or a private, they seriously yet cheerfully provide you with the opportunity to learn how to re-educate your body to make it work the way it's supposed to. Gyrotonic exercise has been the only workout program whose hourly routine I look forward to and whose end comes too quickly. My doctors have watched my strength grow and my pain scale decline and fully credit my working with Steve and Laura on a regular basis for these accomplishments. I can't thank them enough for all they've done and continue to do to help me feel healthier, both physically and mentally. Thanks guys!" -- Mary Lou S.
“The ultimate aim is to be at home in one’s body, experience greater freedom of movement, to feel unrestricted and uninhibited, to be free from pain, to be at one with the nature of oneself, and to experience exercise as a creative and delightful experience.”
