Below is a recent email from musician, Mary Ann Vorasky about how her GYROTONIC® practice has impacted her life, and her work as an artist:
I am currently receiving Gyrotonic lessons at Walker Ozar’s Chiropractic Clinic (Beverly Hills Posture) in Beverly Hills, CA and it is really helping change some longstanding postural issues of mine, as well as supporting me in new ways of being in the world, so I decided to write to you to tell you about it. I have seen interviews with Juliu Horvath in which he says we should feel ease while performing the movements so that we could sing while doing them, and that is why I am writing you. I recently wrote a new song (I’m a singer/songwriter/musician) and sang it to my Gyrotonic teacher, Louis Flores, yesterday in the lesson.
I was amazed how easily the song flowed out of me while I was doing leg work, lying on the table. I also felt so open in my hips, and that is really a major change from how I began, when, with knees bent, I could barely move my right leg outward.
I still have much healing/rehab work to do, but I just wanted to tell you how happy I am to be receiving the Gyrotonic lessons, which I am using my health insurance to help me pay for.
Here is a link to my new song:
Along with my developing physical movement comes new emotional awareness, and the song itself describes some of this process. I am learning how to accept who I am as I am, even as I am changing through this work, letting old posture and emotional pain go. It’s amazing!
I am currently planning a music video for this song in which I hope to feature the choreography/dance of Cati Jean and Le Fleur des Sens.
Also, here is a link to my new website which has a few videos of other songs of mine from a house concert I performed last month: http://maryannvorasky.com/
If Juliu Horvath or other Gyrotonic or Gyrokinesis teachers would like to use some of my music or songs for their work, I would be honored.
