Elodie Labonne started her exploration of movement with the dance Argentine Tango in 2013. As she was searching for a method to deepen her understanding of movement technique and tension release, she chose to become a certified instructor with the GYROKINESIS® method. Elodie’s class are much appreciated for the relaxed and friendly atmosphere she creates, as well as the clarity and the precision of her guidance and explanations.
Love Nilsson approached tango from the music. Professional saxofonist, he found great inspiration in the work of Astor Piazzola and the music made him want to dance. Soon after he started to teach and kept doing so since 1995. Love’s students loves his personal feedbacks and dedication to share his experience and knowledge.
Elodie and Love met on the dance floor in 2014 and have been sharing their passion for the dance with many since then. They explore their dance and pedagogy continuously.
WORDS FROM MY STUDENTS
“Elodie’s GYROKINESIS® classes are simply wonderful. I expected the classes to compare with yoga and Pilates, and they did.
The movements feel a lot like dancing and yoga combined. The classes help me with reducing stress and relaxing tensed muscles.
I look forward to GYROKINESIS® classes every week.”

“I felt very energized and connected with my body after the GYROKINESIS® class.
Elodie is really passionate about what she is doing and you can feel that this is the essence of her classes. Highly recommended!“
“I went into the GYROKINESIS® classes without really any expectations. I didn’t know what it was or how it looked, I had just been recommended by Elodie to try it out.
Turns out that it was really nice! I work a lot by sitting at a computer, so having these classes full of stretching, physical activation and relaxation through concentration techniques has been really good for my body and mind. I’ve even been able to do some of the exercises during the small breaks I have when I’m working, and I really feel the difference in body and mind when I do them.
I’d recommend anyone to at least try it out. “
“I had heard that several of the most famous tango dancers also trained GYROKINESIS® so I wanted to try what this method could do for my body and tango dancing in terms of balance, flexibility, strength and awareness.
After some weeks of training, I certainly noticed increased flexibility and bodily awareness, both in class and in everyday life. Elodie has a great knowledge of the method and a humorous way of teaching.
She really made me aware of how harsh we can be towards ourselves when learning new skills, and helped me to approach myself and the new with joy and curiosity.”
“GYROKINESIS® is an amazing method, I’ve tried different types of yoga and spinal alignment, but this is something else.
It works in a subtle yet deep way, and my body feels so good after I do it, relaxed and open.”
“GYROKINESIS® has really helped me with my stiff neck and shoulders, bringing more mobility and stability to my whole back.
Elodie makes it fun and easy to learn, and yet so efficient. I warmly recommend going to these classes with her!”
“GYROKINESIS® has improved my body awareness a lot. I try to apply the techniques to most of what I do, tango, yoga, physical therapy etc.
Elodie is a wonderful teacher and she has a way of reading body language/movement that is really helpful.”
“GYROKINESIS® exercises gave me the tools to relax.
I am very grateful that during daily stressful situations, I could use certain exercises to find peace and balance in my body! Last but not least, it helped me in improving my posture in dancing.”
“I strongly recommend GYROKINESIS®.
It calms me down after a long and tough workday. I focus more on my breathing now. I feel that my posture is improving, and I am more aware of my body, which helps me to relax.”
