Montreal Health & Beauty
Classes currently offered via Zoom
Dana Gingras is a Montréal-based dancer and choreographer (her company is called Animals of Distinction). Atelier Stable is her movement workshop and during the COVID-19 pandemic, she's been offering classes via Zoom. Gingras teaches a system called gyrokinesis, which gently works the entire body through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. A lot of the movements are circular and undulating in nature and focused on the spine. You can take her classes individually or as a series. They are donation-based (generally around $20 or pay what you can, and 10 percent of proceeds go to the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal). Her current schedule includes a breathing class, a hip opening session, another for hips and shoulders, deep stretching, and something called “Gravitation Uprightness,” which we’re very intrigued by.
