“Kathy is a living manual, brilliant at her craft! Her dedication and graciousness regarding movement speaks for itself. Kathy inspired me to not only become a movement teacher but mentors me to become the best teacher I can be. Her talent and ability to see the students needs in front of her make her a master, and truly one of a kind. Her knowledge is clearly communicated through her eye for detail, her voice and her touch. It’s always a joy to work with Kathy, I have consistently left her trainings feeling invigorated, enthusiastic and well informed.” 

 - Christina Stroh, Owner Movement Center LA | Gyrotonic Master Trainer


In this course, Gyrotonic Trainers learn to apply Gyrotonic movement principles to exercises on the Leg Extension Unit, one of the four specialized equipment pieces designed by Gyrotonic founder and creator Juliu Horvath. The Leg Extension Unit facilitates functional full body movement sequences that strengthen upper/lower body coordination and hand/foot coordination. Only two spots available.


Expanding your Gyrotonic teaching skill set is an investment of time and energy. Each of the specialized equipment courses provides you new tools for deepening your skill set and delivering better results to your students. 

✓ Diversify your teaching tool box 
✓ Challenge your clients who have mastered Level 1 fundamentals
✓ Help your clients increase their leg strength and integrate that strength into full body movement
✓ Support rehabilitation of knee injuries
✓ Improve foot function
✓ Learn how to apply key principles and movements from Gyrokinesis to the specialized equipment.

“I have known Kathy for over 10 years and have had the good fortune of being mentored and taught by her as she continues to pursue a deep, honest understanding of this work she loves. Not only is she a Master at teaching movement, but her respect for her student’s process and goals reflects a sincere humility that enables her students to hone their own talents. If you take a course with Kathy, you can expect to get a clear understanding of the work being presented, a collaborative but disciplined learning environment that fosters the sharing of information, and a boost in your confidence and skills as a teacher!”

“ You also get the chance to see how an experienced teacher leads the way – through a deep caring for the work and for her students that she shows through daily, professional, consistent efforts to grow one more step and bring you along with her. I am genuinely excited for anyone interested in pursuing a Gyrotonic Teacher Training education.”

- Megan Frummer, Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis Pre-Trainer | Pilates Teacher Trainer

“I have had the opportunity to work with Kathy Van Patten in both the Pilates and Gyrotonic methods over the last 5 years. As a master trainer she is deeply committed to honoring the integrity of each method and she approaches her trainings with a high level of organization and commitment to the educational process. She challenges each student at their individual level while balancing the group experience as a whole. On an individual level her personal practice and physical understanding of what she teaches is beyond inspiring. At any age what she does demonstrates her physical and mental strength and clarity of understanding. She is both a humble teacher and student, which earns double my respect.”
