(Class 1) Cardiovascular Breathing: This class begins with the cervical series and moves into Cardiovascular Breathing Program 2. This class works to clear stagnation in the body through ventilation breathing and movement and helps to bring the body back into balance and harmony.
(Class 2) Lotus Blossom: This class begins with the cervical series and moves into Lotus Blossom. This class is mainly on the floor challenging us to find supple-ling and narrowing with more gravity upon us. It finishes with standing nerve strengthening and breathing to bring our energies back down after being stirred up.

Our last story for our is about James and Craig who met at a dinner for doctors and have now been married for 15 years. They discovered a year into their marriage and have never looked back. It helped James with myofascial pain in his neck and shoulders from hospital work but he also loved the intellectual and cerebral approach as well as the psychological and mental element as well. Craig had dabbled in different exercises but never felt compelled by anything until he started Gyrotonic. His range of motion increased, he saw benefits in himself and his capability and he loves how it teaches you to be present in the moment to connect to your body. We talked about how common it’s become in our country to get stuck in a sedentary lifestyle and how the medical profession doesn’t always address the type of musculoskeletal issues that Gyrotonic does. James and Craig love how gentle and effective Gyrotonic is and how it supports them in their active lifestyle so they can do things like in this pic, where they did 10 days of river rafting, hiking and camping in the remote wilderness of Alaska! Thanks to all the couples for sharing your amazing stories!


Last night we had a wonderful time celebrating as she has accepted a job at the University of Oregon! Jes has been with the studio since the very beginning. She is a caring and invested teacher, always growing in her own knowledge and looking for ways to share that with her clients. We will most definitely miss her being in the studio every week but we haven’t seen the last of her and we have some cool things in store with her over this next year! Specialized Equipment class will continue on Tuesdays at 5:30 and Thursdays will be a Tower class at 5:30 starting 3/7. Thanks to all who made it out last night! We love you and are so excited for your new opportunity, Jes! ®


Now to continue our , we have another who’s story we want to share. Ann and Dallas met in Santa Ana in 1975, friends for 13 years and then ran away together to New Mexico and have now been married for 31 years! They came to the studio when Dallas was trying to heal a hip injury from running and Ann suffered from serious back pain and it was ®️ that gave them great success. Ann and Dallas are super active with backpacking, mountain biking, camping, scuba diving and pickle ball and they love how doing Gyrotonic twice a week together increases their flexibility and leaves them feeling good every time they leave the studio so they can continue with their active lifestyle! Move with the one you love ❤️


Happy Day of Love! We are so thankful for all of our Move Lab Family. Love you guys! 💕💕💕 ♥️


During this Month of Love, we wanted to share the stories of some of our couples who do Gyrotonic together. This is Mike and Marta, they have been married and doing Gyrotonic for 15 years! They love to travel, cook, and being outdoors and they especially love doing Gyrotonic together! Marta loves how after all these years, she hasn’t lost any height, no osteoporosis, she has great bone density and it feels great on her body! Gyrotonic has helped Mike with his chronic back pain from an injury but he also applies Gyrotonic principles to his everyday life and it has helped him to be more body conscious. He said it has been transformative for him and he loves how the system includes strength, flexibility, engagement, body anatomy and composition and rolled into one. It has been a joy to work with them and see the love they share. As Marta put it, “Gyro together, stay together” 💕💕💕 ®️


Such an awesome ® pre-training completed with these amazing ladies! They were curious and inquisitive and we had such a blast digging deep! Next we have a ® pre-training coming 4/21-4/23 and 4/28-4/30. Email [email protected] if you’re interested!

Why The Movement Lab?

Clients come to The Movement Lab for many reasons. Some are looking for relief from pain or injury, some are looking to improve their mobility and balance, and many just enjoy the work and how they feel afterward! These are all great reasons to join our classes or take private sessions and we look forward to helping you find what works for you.

Our Philosophy

“I focus on sustainable and natural movement/exercises. I believe that increasing the functionality of the body through movement should be the overarching goal of exercise and that movement should be prioritized over the conventional exercise model (stationary bike, recumbent, cardio and strength exercise only).”
- Rich O'Connor/Owner
