'Since I've been working with Hayley doing Gyrotonic exercises I have noticed a big difference in not only awareness of my own body, but also my ability to put my body in positions that look stressful on court, but are controlled. The Gyrotonic method has helped strengthen my back so it feels comfortable and stronger in all positions and I haven't had a back spasm in 18 months which has been amazing as I was getting them every 3 months! Hayley's been a fantastic teacher and helps me understand my body better which for me is key'.
I am privileged to have worked with Hayley for about twenty years, and I am sure my comparative freedom of movement has a lot to do with the time and care Hayley takes to adapt each lesson around my particular physical problems. Now in my eighties, with osteoporosis and a few other niggles, I walk the dog for a mile each day, have a large vegetable garden and in general feel healthier than a person fifteen years younger. The Gyrotonic fitness machine engages the whole body in a gentle but determined way, also stretching the mind to be aware of each muscle. It will tone, build and maintain the complete person (and is such fun to use). Hayley is a competent, well trained and understanding person, who I totally trust.
