Alexandre develops his practice as a dance teacher through mentors Marc Boivin, Sophie Corriveau, Christine Lamothe, Anne Lebeau, Beverly Aitchison and Rise Steinberg via the Dance Teacher Training offered by EDCM and l'École supérieure de ballet du Québec (2015). He has since been invited to teach contemporary technique at EDCM’s professional dance program.

GYROKINESIS®


GYROKINESIS®


 GYROKINESIS®

Method

A movement method that addresses the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. The system’s unique movement signature is three-dimensional, using gentle repetitive circling, spiraling and undulating exercises connected to breathing patterns to stimulate the internal organs resulting in a sense of calm, wellbeing, and mental clarity.

An energetic polarity is encouraged by simultaneously reaching in opposite directions, creating both internal balance and support. Through the constant ebb-and-flow and push-and-pull movements, connective tissues are prompted to maintain their suppleness. By the end of a session, one's entire system has been awakened and brought into greater balance with a renewed sense of vitality.
