includes the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® movement methods.


Charlotte Movement Arts Studio is proud to offer private sessions on this state of the art equipment. The fully adjustable equipment is designed to both support and guide the body during the various movements of the session.

The adjustment capabilities will meet the needs of every body type and strength level, from those looking to rebuild their strength to athletes and dancers. The unique design provides constant and circular resistance while eliminating the jarring found in conventional exercise equipment particularly at the end ranges of movements.


With the circular nature of the Gyrotonic method, the movements have no beginning or end and thus no possibility of joint compression or a lack of control at either point. Muscles and connective tissues in and around the joints are strengthened and lengthened without compression - providing a regenerative effect  to the entire body.

Pilates Method

Charlotte Movement Arts Studio houses professional Pilates exercise equipment including the Professional Reformer, Full Cadillac/Tower Split Pedal Chair, and Ladder Barrel. Our sessions will also incorporate Pilates Matwork or the use of small equipment to further enhance or modify the traditional exercise sequences.

Regular practice of Pilates has been linked with better posture, increased functional strength and flexibility, a lengthening of the musculature, improved dance or athletic performance, more efficient breathing, and mental clarity.

With principles that include: Breathing, Concentration, Control, Centering, Flowing, and Precision - the Pilates Method is a complete system of fitness for body, mind, and spirit. It develops our mind-body connection and takes us beyond our perceived limitations and physical constraints. The Pilates practitioner is empowered, aware, and renewed.
