How often should I do this type of exercise?

We recommend practicing this type of exercise 2-3 workouts per week. However, that could mean coming in to the studio twice a week and then doing a homework program once a week on your own. It could mean a combination of Gyrokinesis group classes and Gyrotonic private sessions.  Or, it could be just pilates private sessions. Each person’s needs are completely different. What is important is that you participate in the activity a few times per week so your body has a chance to really assimilate the new information you are giving it. Doing anything only once a week gives your body six days to completely forget what it has just begun to learn and leads to a slow rate of progress and therefore more tendency to not stick with it.
