Manhattan – Midtown West
315 W 57th St between Eighth and Ninth Aves
Whether or not you sport toe shoes, balletic movements are worth mimicking. Gyrotonic, or "yoga for dancers," focuses on stretching and strengthening the muscles and elongating the spine through a series of sweeping circular motions using a Pilates-like machine. At the sun-soaked, pristine Gyrotonic Manhattan (which focuses exclusively on the practice), longtime trainer Kathy Van Patten guides clients through the motions ($85 per hour), which all create a more limber body and better posture.
