Mari Kasich is a GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Master Trainer. She has been teaching both methods since 2004. Mari found the GYROTONIC® Method as she was seeking relief from chronic pain stemming from sports related injuries and overuse developed over time.
Mari danced ballet and played sports throughout high school and completed a BFA in dance at The University of MN. Because of her pain, she discovered the GYROTONIC® Method during her last year of dancing at UMN and never looked back. After her first GYROTONIC® lesson, Mari recognized the power, sophistication and rehabilitating potential of the GYROTONIC® Method .
Mari was drawn to the energetic aspect, adaptability and creativity of the GYROTONIC® System that stood out to her from other forms of exercise and movement. And while most dancers and athletes at the time were pursuing Pilates or yoga, Mari studied and mastered the GYROTONIC® Expansion System. This resulted in her teaching at one of the first studios in Minneapolis to offer the GYROTONIC® Method, the first studio in Costa Rica to offer the GYROTONIC® Method where she spent two years, and finally the most renowned GYROTONIC® studio in the U.S., Miami Beach GYROTONIC®, where she was owner for 10 years.
Mari has trained with Master Trainers from around the world. She completed most of her training directly with the creator of the Method, Juliu Horvath. She spent 10 Years (2009-2019) operating Miami Beach GYROTONIC®. It was the studio where trainers visited from around the world to complete their final certificate course and where Juliu Horvath would conduct his continuing education for all the Master Trainers from around the globe.
Uncommon Movement is thrilled to have Mari on board. As a Master Trainer, Mari also travels to teach GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® educational courses, using Uncommon Movement in Stillwater, MN as her new teaching base. She sees clients weekly and conducts continuing education for GYROKINESIS® And GYROTONIC® trainers periodically.
Mari is a Master Trainer of all the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® specialized courses and equipment.
