About Pascale Leonard:
Pascale was first to introduce GYROTONIC® method in Canada. Having obtained her certificate as a specialized Master Trainer since 1999, she is offering Teacher Training Courses in GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® (Level 1 & 2) through Canada and in different countries. A graduate of Les Ateliers de Danse Moderne de Montréal (LADMMI), Pascale traveled to India to study classical Indian dance which fascinated her by its ability to communicate the full range of emotions. In New York she pursued her training at the Martha Graham School and at the Limon Institute. It was during this period that she discovered the exceptional movement technique of GYROTONIC®.
She continues today to explore and refine her technique by continuous education with Juliu Horvath the Creator, while also integrating other techniques such BioGeometrie, vegetal alchimistry and Boudhism meditation. She completed her osteopathy program and she is presently writing a thesis: « The importance and the place of figure eight (movement at the base of Origin of Life) movement in Osteopathy».
Pascale's approach is colored by her years of osteopathy background and her research on the movement of figure eight. She focuses on:
· Verbal cueing to assess client
· Collecting information by light touch
· Guiding with Listening Hands On to support what is already present
Her main focus is to develop Listening Hands synchronized with verbal cueing in order for the clients to feel that they are performing (moving?) on their own instead of relying too much on their trainer.
Through Pascale's teaching you will learn the foundations of the Gyrotonic Method and the importance of figure eight in relation to the potential of self-rejuvenation of the body.
