New Yoga Class and Instructor at The Studio

Posted April 7, 2016 at 9:33 am by


Jen and Jacque­lyn over at The Stu­dio are intro­duc­ing a new instruc­tor and yoga class and they want you to know about it. Here they are with what you need to know…

The Stu­dio is pleased to intro­duce Miguele de Quadros and add Yoga with Gyro­ton­ic Prin­ci­ples to our class sched­ule begin­ning in May. We invite you to attend 2 free intro­duc­to­ry class­es on 4/18 & 4/25 at 12:15pm. This spe­cial­ized yoga prac­tice awak­ens the sens­es, stim­u­lates the ner­vous sys­tem, and acti­vates the body using breath. Mov­ing flu­id­ly through sequences, phys­i­cal and men­tal blocks dis­solve away, allow­ing the body to open up in new ways.

Cre­at­ed by Hilary Cartwright, a soloist with the Roy­al Bal­let, this style of yoga incor­po­rates ele­ments of Kun­dali­ni and Hatha tech­niques, as well as Taoist prin­ci­ples. Hilary’s unique approach is now being taught by a select group of train­ers to a wide range of stu­dents, includ­ing seniors and dancers at Paris Opera Bal­let and Amer­i­can Bal­let Theatre.

As a 10 year old bal­let stu­dent, Miguele was first intro­duced by Mag­a­li Mes­sac to the Gyro­ton­ic Expan­sion Sys­tem®. It has been an inte­gral part of her life in and out the dance stu­dio ever since.

In 2012, she began reg­u­lar­ly attend­ing Yoga with Gyro­ton­ic Prin­ci­ples work­shops with Hilary Cartwright, and was cho­sen to be a part of her men­tor­ship pro­gram in 2015. She is hon­ored to be part of the first group to teach her work and says:

“The Gyro­ton­ic® Sys­tem not only dra­mat­i­cal­ly improved my strength, coor­di­na­tion, and flex­i­bil­i­ty; it also helped pre­vent injuries and increased my phys­i­cal aware­ness. After each work­out, I find a sense of bal­ance and am remind­ed that I am capa­ble of much more than I pre­vi­ous­ly thought. I love that this work con­tin­ues to evolve so peo­ple with var­ied back­grounds can ben­e­fit. I work with a wide range of clients, and adapt my teach­ing approach to reach every­one and help find ways to over­come per­ceived limitations.”

Please join us for our free demo class­es on April 18th and 25th at 12:15pm to expe­ri­ence this unique yoga stretch class for yourself!
