theGKBabe is in Session: with Mommies

Expectant Mother, Dancer, Reiki Naturalista, and Certified Notary-- Ms. Beverly Hunter came in for her first experience with GYROKINESIS® with theGKBabe.

She was greeted with the sounds of Native American Flute and a smile as she filled out her intake form at the Elements Wellness Center Studio. Now in her final trimester of pregnancy she is finally coming to glacial pace whereas she can prepare to deliver her first child. She comes with a good report of have already having strength, endurance and a pain-free preganancy course taking part in such as activities as Yoga, Reiki, Meditation and regular walking. Now, with her encounter with Kayla she can take things a step further using GYROKINESIS® to facilitate movement that releases tension in her hips and shoulder and upper back areas. 

Beverly is taking the natural birth approach in hospital. While she has the support of loved ones and family members she will need to be in full control of her breathing to find stability during the time of labor. Labor can take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a few hours. Expectant mother's will need to remain calm, steady and feel a sense of support to lessen the risk of complications and stress. GYROKINESIS® exercises are designed to do just that.


An advanced mover and one who is already aware of the use of the Breath. Beverly fell into it with ease. Expanding the ribcage and belly as she filled up during her inhale like a balloon she releases and sends her exhale out using the abdominals to the push out to the fullest extent of the air.....she closes her eyelids and relaxes into the flow as we introduced the next series including movement of the spine, pelvis, shoulders and more. 

The expectant mother often mentions how still and calm she and baby inside her womb is throughout the session. She has at least 4 exercises that can be applied to her regimen during episodes of restlessness, anxiety or shortness of breath. 

When she moves....baby moves....When she breathes.....baby breathes....

 
 
 
 




She remains present, attentive and elated as she is guided from the one area of focus to the other.
Her trust for theGKBabe is evident and her willingness to do more makes for a productive and dynamic GYROKINESIS® Session. 

"Thank You", she says, "...this was necessary. I was energized the rest of the day and  slept peacefully through the night !"

Compliments to you Beverly for investing your body!

Yes, Work, Get Your LIFE. Street/Dance Workshop Jacob's Pillow 2020 NYC

My Life at the Pillow..." ~by JR Glover Today was a Pillow Day. As an Alumni, I traveled North to help facilitate and support the Recruitment Tour amidst other beautiful dancing bodies. It's amazing to see how we have all grown through the years as Dancers, Creatives, Choreographers, Directors and lifelong students. Even more, it's inspiring to know that we are all keeping at it--pursuing Excellence and honing our craft day by day. What was meant to be a standby experience turned out to be a Full Dance Day for me. I give thanks to my peers who encouraged me to dance. It was a risk--knowing that I had not danced or taken a technique class proper in several months. However, due to the nature of GYROKINESIS as an instructor, I never lost body awareness, posture, alignment etc. So it was just a matter of tipping over the edge again to see where my body goes....and catching it again. It was a necessary challenge in fact, with the chronic pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia and C

Keeping Dance Alive, St. Croix Arts Community Outreach

 In 2017, I was at home in Washington DC bedridden and removed from everything that I knew.  My life as a Dancer as I knew it....was no longer. I could barely walk, performing menial tasks around the house was a burden for me. I often felt faint and dizzy. My nervous system had taken a hard hit from the brutal cold winter of Chicago. The winds  shook my bones and my days of job hunting, street performing in the Chicago O'Hare Airport for bills and just aimlessly walking in the snow drove my body into a state of shock. PH. D Chenzira Davis Kahina & Ms. Charlita Charlita Schuster,  great friends discussing a paining in the UVI Cultural Center After my last gig as a Broadway Dancer, there was nothing more for me in the Windy City. I'd returned home with question in my mind and heart as to how I would move forward. I was diagnoses with a rare chronic pain condition, Trigeminal Neuralgia.

Remote Work Saves the Day!

  People tend not to understand. Being an Artist means that you get no days off. It’s a 24/7 kind of job whether a Creative Commissioning Artist, a Teacher, Administrator, Advocate or Affiliate there is no way to clock in and clock out of Inspiration. It just hits you and you have to be ready. That’s why it ’ s helpful to just check out of life and into a hotel at times. Not to vacation, but to get a good night's rest, wake up and actually get things done. Maya Angelou, Pulitzer Prize Writer said that she couldn’t write in her home because she was surrounded by too beautiful of things. I get it. There are layers to inspiration in if you’re not in the right setting it can mess with your mental space too.
