DNCE 253 GYROKINESIS (R) THE ART OF EXERCISING AND BEYOND

1 Unit - 4 hours lab
Transfers: CSU, UC
GYROKINESIS(R) is a holistic system of exercise that embraces some of the key principles found in yoga, dance, swimming, gymnastics, massage, and tai chi. The entire body is worked using three-dimensional movement sequences designed to stretch and strengthen the muscles; articulate, decompress, and increase the range of joint motion; and develop coordination and endurance. Focus is on the natural directions of spinal movement and coordinated breath patterns intended to open energy pathways and enhance the nervous and circulatory systems. The objective is to improve overall health of mind, body and spirit by teaching the body to move with fluidity, ease and power. DNCE 253 may be taken once for a maximum of 1 unit. Students are limited to taking four Gyrokinesis courses (DNCE 93 , DNCE 94 , DNCE 95 , DNCE 96 , or DNCE 253 ) for a maximum of 8 units. NR
