Elaine and Beatriz

A Passion for therapeutic movement

From one-to-one sessions to group classes and workshops, we tailor our approach to suit you, whatever your level.

We are Master Trainers with many years’ experience of teaching the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® exercise methods. We offer a wide range of courses and continuing education.

Movement To Life came into being after more than twenty years of close collaboration running studios that offer the GYROTONIC® Method, at Nature Works and Studio 74 in London. Brought together by a shared passion for dance and therapeutic movement, we continue to explore and develop our work across a range of disciplines that inspire us.

A unique movement and conditioning technique that addresses the entire body – increasing range of movement and creating functional strength.

The method utilises specialised equipment designed to support and enhance the body’s natural movement patterns, allowing the body to work as one harmonious and balanced system.
