BEATRICE BERNSTEIN
Gyrotonic®, Gyrokinesis® and Gyrotonic® Pre-trainer

What Beatrice can do for you...

Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis exercises help to create a sense of inner balance and enhance one’s proprioception, agility, strength, flexibility and coordination. Over time, clients enjoy improvements in their alignment and overall body function, alleviated compression in the spine and increased self-awareness. Improved breath work and heightened mental focus can also be achieved through this holistic practice. The beginning series of exercise sequences gently opens and unwinds the body to help release daily stresses and to allow for greater challenges later in the sessions.

About Beatrice…

The joy of dance and movement has been a part of Beatrice’s life from a young age and she is grateful to have had an international career as a professional dancer for over twenty years. Beatrice is a graduate of the North Carolina School of the Arts and has danced for companies such as The Washington Ballet, Orlando Ballet, The Metropolitan Opera Ballet, Pfalztheater Kaiserslautern, and as a guest artist with the English National Ballet. Currently, she loves being part of The Playground Community at Rambert and works in film and television.

Beatrice first experienced Gyrotonic while dancing at Washington Ballet and after experiencing how the method is helpful for recovering from injury and great for ‘self-care’, she decided to become a certified instructor. Beatrice has been enjoying teaching Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis since 2006 and is a Gyrotonic Pre-trainer in Master Trainer Jackson Kellogg’s network. She was trained by Master Trainers Leda Franklin and Debra Rose and has taught at both of their studios. Beatrice has also taught dance internationally for over fifteen years and has developed her own ‘Therapeutic Ballet Technique Class’. In 2014, she presented her work on ‘Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation for Young Dancers’ at the International Association of Dance Medicine and Science Annual Meeting in Basel, Switzerland.

Philosophy

“My classes and private sessions are carefully composed based on the ‘Whole Person’ I see in front of me and on everyone’s individual needs. I love that Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis are applicable to all body types and are complementary to any lifestyle. I enjoy teaching all ages and abilities, dancers and non-dancers alike. I strongly believe that movement, positivity and accessing one’s own life energy has the power to heal. I am passionate about helping others and am committed to serving as a guide for people who wish to nurture a healthy, positive relationship with their body. I am very grateful to be working alongside such an outstanding team of teachers and therapists at Golborne Place”.
