Jeanne Reilly became interested in Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis through her career as a professional dancer. She was amazed at the new freedom and strength she found in her body, and became passionate about sharing this knowledge with all types of people, including other dancers and athletes, yogis, senior citizens, the injured, children, and pre- and post-natal women.
Jeanne has studied with many enriching teachers. She trained as an instructor of Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis under Leda Franklin, and received her certification from Juliu Horvath, the system's creator. She has studied anatomy and body reading with Tom Myers, kinesthetic anatomy with Irene Dowd, and completed Leslie Kaminoff's Advanced Studies Yoga Anatomy training. She has also studied nutrition and holistic health counseling at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and graduated magna cum laude from Barnard College of Columbia University. Additionally, she trained as a classical dancer at the Joffrey Ballet School, and has performed with a variety of ballet and modern dance companies around the United States. She brings her love of movement and her fascination and reverence for the human body to every class that she teaches.
