Read about what makes Pilates and Gyrotonic different, or find out for yourself with our Pilates + Gyrotonics Week 12 – 20 November. Try a 30 min taster for £20 in Camden.
1) The movement patterns in Gyrotonic are generally more circular and rotational than Pilates, which is generally more linear.
2) The Gyrotonic method has a bigger range of dynamics with breathing patterns, which reflect and support our bodies more than Pilates.
3) In the Pilates method, we generally start with movements lying down and later on progress to upright postures. In the Gyrotonic method, we start with seated or upright poses straight away.
4) The two methods use different types of machines with different types of resistance.
5) In the Pilates method, we practise using different parts of the body more in isolation before integrating them with the rest of the body. In the Gyrotonic method, we generally work the body as an integrated whole right from the start.
Aud Ausbo worked as contemporary dancer in London before embarking on her training to be a Pilates instructor with Moira Stott (Toronto) and the Pilates Foundation UK. She is also a certified instructor of Gyrotonic® Level 1 and Skinner Releasing Technique (contemporary dance), both of which greatly influence her teaching. Aud believes that Pilates is an ideal technique for creating a well balanced, strong and supple body. In her teaching she focuses particularly on helping her clients achieve freer and more efficient movement and an increased sense of body awareness. Aud has recently completed a Master’s degree: The Body in Performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and is the manager of the Pilates equipment studio at triyoga.
