Gail Bolte creates customized private and group Gyrotonic training sessions to improve her clients overall health and well being.
A native of New York, Gail Bolte’s enthusiasm for fitness began in childhood trying a myriad of sports but her passion landed with gymnastics and high school team dance. In 2003, Gail relocated to Portland and embraced Pilates to treat the chronic lower back pain she experienced after having children. Gail’s success with Pilates drove her passion for practicing therapeutic movement and led her to become a certified Pilates instructor.
In 2007, Gail relocated to Hong Kong and continued her work as a Pilates instructor at One Pilates Studio. At this studio Gail was introduced to Gyrotonic exercise and quickly realized the benefits of working your body in both linear and circular movements. Gail experienced the benefits Gyrotonic exercise provided first-hand, including increased strength, fluidity, and balance. This exposure, and realization of the power Gyrotonic exercise has on transforming your body, drove Gail to begin her Gyrotonic certification. Upon her return to Portland in 2009, she completed her Gyrotonic training at Center Gyrotonic with Master Trainer Emma Kingston.
Gail is also a graduate of Northwest Center for Structural Integration. She added this next dimension to her practice to offer her clients a way of releasing the adhesions that might prevent them from moving to their full capacity. She offers 75 minute SI sessions. She encourages her clients to continue moving thoughtfully between sessions to encourage new movement patterns in their bodies.
Gail believes that movement is the link to health, happiness and inner peace. Her motivation comes from sharing her passion for Gyrotonic System with others and providing her clients with the inspiration and support they need to achieve their fitness goals.
