Reflections on the GYROKINESIS® Method: Interview with Juliu Horvath
This article explores the development of the GYROKINESIS® method, examines somatic principles related to the method and includes an interview with Juliu Horvath, its founder and creator. Topics within the interview include the concepts of sensing energetic flow, daily practice as means for sustainability and the role of playfulness and physical spirituality in bodywork. Woven within the interview are observations about the method from my background as a dance professor and experiential insights from participation in Gyrokinesis coursework with the founder. Pleasure in practice and my felt sense are documented through multidimensional sensory tracking. Perspectives include the descriptive experience of sensate flow and the perceptions that arise from teaching and learning within a living method. The article concludes with questions for further practice-based research in the Gyrokinesis method and suggests the need for further theoretical research in somatic sustainability.
