Over the last ten years, I’ve been fortunate to further my studies in Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis with Mia Munroe. Mia is an exceptional teacher and an amazing mover. She unerringly knows what to say to communicate the depth and the beauty of this method and make it accessible to her students. She’s endlessly inventive in her teaching and tireless in her mission to understand the body. It is so inspiring to be guided by someone who is constantly exploring the work not just to teach but for her own personal discovery. I think this is what informs her unique perspective, honesty and humor and why class with Mia is always fresh and insightful. I’m always learning something new.

I love, love, love working with Mia! She’s the real deal; an inspiring, encouraging, and patient teacher who is dedicated to her students and the methods of Gyrokenisis and Gyrotonic. As a student, I love taking classes from Mia. Her years of experience as a Master Trainer and her amazing knowledge of the human body are evident in every class she teaches, and she is always fully present for each of her students. And her zany sense of humor just cracks me up, making class just fly by! As a fellow teacher, I appreciate Mia’s dedication and availability to each of her students and apprentices all over this world, making sure we truly understand not just how to teach, but also why we each what we teach- she is always there to answer my questions. She has creatively developed some fabulous resources for healing and health with her Inner Pelvic Health workshops and her annual Orcas Island Gyrokenisis retreat, and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next! I highly recommend to everyone they treat themselves to some time with Mia, it will be worth every minute!

Before I started working with Mia, every step hurt. I enjoy my work as a cinematographer and going out in the evenings, but my arthritic knees took away any pleasure of being on my feet. My work with Mia helped me find space in my joints and strengthened my supporting muscles. I’m not running marathons, but Mia’s work has added several years to my career and I enjoy dancing again.
Mia’s teaching is unsurpassed, as she combines her extensive knowledge of the bodies’ systems with a genuine and deep caring of those she helps move. She helped me to discover freedom in my body, so that I can move with joy, which I am so grateful for! Thank you Mia!

Mia’s teaching is at once fun, clear, and incredibly detailed in the workings of the body, making her classes accessible to everyone who wants to have a deeper connection and understanding of how to move with better ease, strength and grace.
I am a long-term Gyrokinesis practitioner and have worked with many master trainers. Mia is unique not only for her dynamic classes but in her ability to design workshops and retreats that literally are life-changing. I have attended many and always come away with a new approach to my body, Gyrokinesis and myself as a person. Mia is extremely passionate and knowledgeable. I’d highly recommend her for both individual and group work.

Mia is the full embodiment of Gyrokinesis, both inside and out of the studio. Her teaching is infused with passion, discipline, breath and humor, making her one of the most accessible and uplifting teachers I have ever encountered. Her fully internalized knowledge of kinesiology, gained during her first career as a professional dancer, is glowingly apparent in her hands-on instruction, which aligns her clients and students fully from skin through to bone. An indefatigable curiosity drives her to continually research and grow her own practice, which sets an inspiring example for anyone lucky enough to cross her path. If have a chance to study with Mia, DO IT! You’ll learn how to arch and curl on a whole different level!

With unbelievably comprehensive competence and knowledge, Mia teaches Gyrokinesis with humor. Her teaching technique is phenomenal; her corrections are positive, always encouraging. I leave the class feeling taller, healthy, and invigorated.
I have been taking Gyrokinesis® classes from Mia for five years and am continually inspired by her. She provides new insights and fresh approaches that take me deeper in my understanding of and joy in the work and in my body. I wish I could show you a before and after picture—it’s really amazing how much better I look and feel now that gyro is a regular part of my life. Bone spurs in my right hip joint were causing a lot of pain and restriction of movement but, with Mia’s help in focusing on working with the thighbone extending out of the socket to provide more space during movement, the pain has been greatly reduced. Mia’s classes have hugely improved the quality of my life!

Gyrokinesis with Mia is life-changing. My work with her has helped me recover critical core strength and realign my musculature — greatly reducing my injury-related pain and improving my mind-body connection. I find my work with Mia to be incredibly effective, especially the return on my time investment. All the good I get from even a single session still staggers me. I feel and move through the world so much better, and it shows!
