Antigymnastique® & Gyrotonic® Trainer

What Andrzej can do for you...

Movements … which allow you to live in the present, more comfortable, without fatigue or pain. Andrzej brings to his classes his personal experience, his knowledge of movement and other mind-body disciplines, to help clients to reconnect with the essential need of wellbeing in life.

When we practise ANTIGYMNASTIQUE® our inner strength and self-healing abilities flourish. The movements that are suggested are subtle, precise, exact and fun. They take into account thoughts and emotions while respecting the body’s structural integrity. The practitioner is like a storyteller, using words and images to guide participants through the movements. At times during the class, participants are free to relate their sensations, their feelings, and their thoughts. Slowly you start to unravel the complicated knots of your musculature. Your body learns to free itself. It relaxes and regains its true height, its natural beauty, and its inner peace. Practising Antigymnastique allows you to live in the present, without fatigue or pain.

The GYROTONIC® exercises increase the functional capacity of the entire organism in a harmonious way. Mobilizes the spine and releases its rigidity.

Philosophy

We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.

(William Shakespeare – The Tempest)

Our body is our self. It is our only perceptible reality. It is not opposed to our intelligence, to our feelings, to our soul. It includes them and shelters them. By becoming aware of our body we give ourselves access to our entire being – for body and spirit, mental and physical, even strength and weakness, represent not our duality but our unity.

Thérèse Bertherat - “The Body Has Its Reasons”
