About the instructor:
Karen is one of only a handful of GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® method Specialized Master Trainers in the world selected & trained by the systems creator Juliu Horvath to conduct his final licensing exams for new teachers. She is a master trainer for all levels of Gyrotonic & Gyrokinesis and for all the specialized equipment. She began working with Gyrotonic over 25 years ago as a professional dancer in NYC and from the first class she recognized this system’s highly refined & evolved support of the human body’s natural healthy way of moving and she has since shared her enthusiasm & expertise with people of all experience levels.
Karen holds master’s degrees in movement related fields and has published and presented work on dance pedagogy with its focus on effective teaching techniques both nationally and internationally. She has explored and studied movement her entire life, working as a professional dancer as well as studying methods of body work, biomechanics, kinesiology and somatic therapies including in-depth university coursework in Laban-Bartenieff Fundamentals™, along with movement & anatomy education by or with notable movement educators such as Lulu Sweigard, Irene Down, and Martha Yoshida. She has provided in-service education clinics to many physical therapy professionals by offering her unique understanding of how to coach a moving body in space and how to employ verbal & hands-on cueing to facilitate the best learning. By combining her unique experiences as a former professional dancer, university teacher and movement educator Karen can teach the Gyrotonic methodology to people with diverse movement backgrounds; those recovering from injury, athletes hoping to gain an edge on their competition, as well as the self-proclaimed “couch potato” who wants to improve their overall health.
