Come study with Beckett on Mondays from noon until 5pm. She's teaching our Gyrotonic group class and holding private sessions.
Beckett Emerald Sky grew up in Southern California and New York City and attended the Idyllwild School of Music and Art to study ballet and modern dance with the Bella Lewitzki Company. She was also a competitive ice skater, having a fascination and love for graceful, expressive movement. Her first love of movement came from being in nature and feeling the joy of the sun, the wind and the ocean and trees which moved her to start dancing!
Beckett has an MFA degree in dance and has trained and taught Yoga, Pilates and Gyrotonic all over the world. Before relocating to beautiful San Luis Obispo, Beckett was living in Florence, Italy, where she lived a lifelong dream of studying oil painting and art restoration. Her Gyrotonic and teaching practice became all the more essential to maintain open channels of giving and receiving and energy flow. During challenging times in her life, including several car accidents and dance injury trauma, life upheavals and personal losses, the Gyrotonic Method has been a friend to her that has kept her mentally, physically and emotionally alive, strong and true to her core. A long and profound healing process took place over 10 years which brought her back from being unable to walk, to competing in triathlons and 10K races, and returning to ballet performance. But this was more than a healing of joints and muscle movement, it was a reconnection through the nerve tissue to the source of movement with the mind and breath that restructured her into a greater living expression of herself then she had known. She discovered firsthand that what the Gyrotonic(R) Method claims to do for you, it does so powerfully!
Beckett is a Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis trainer and Pre-Trainer (a teacher trainer) and she continues to explore ballet, hiking, swimming, surfing and anything involving a celebration of nature and life through movement. Her favorite teachers are animals, they are the inspiration for so many of these exercise systems, because of their natural ease in their bodies and instinctive grace, power and individuality.
Beckett is truly delighted to meet you and help you to feel your best, with confidence, energy, joy and peace and to live in a body you love!
