Gyrokinesis with Karen Burka

Week of April 20, 2024

The Gyrokinesis Cardiovascular Breathing Program, developed by Juliu Horvath, offers a path to respiratory health in uniquely designed progressions that allows each person to stay in their individual comfort zone while expanding the functional range with a sense of ease.

In these classes, we will explore and experience the fundamentals of the movement and breathing patterns while sitting and standing. These movements will be performed in order to open and stimulate all parts of the body to allow maximum inhalation and exhalation throughout the brain and lung chambers.

All circulatory systems of the human body are stimulated systematically, leading to an increase in the flow of blood, nutrients, oxygen and other gases, and as well as hormones to and from the cells.

This ultimately increases overall better health, energy, life force, and detoxification.


Karen Burka’s love of movement led her to San Diego State University where she obtained a B.S. degree in physical education and sports medicine. She then joined Santa Monica College’s International Touring Dance company and even designed some of the costumes, leading her to her next career as a fashion stylist to the stars. In 1995, she became certified in the Pilates and Gyrotonic methods. Karen has been sharing with groups and private clients for over 30 years, and always continues study and grow. She is now a Master Trainer in the Gyrotonic, pretrainer in Gyrokinesis and specializes in breathe-work with movement. Karen also teaches Hatha, Restorative, Children’s and Aerial Yoga.

Karen lives in Santa Barbara, California with her long haired Dachshund Mate.
