GST - Don't be a poserPosted on Oct 2nd 2008 1:00PM by Kristen Seymour

Looking for a new way to work your body? If you want to be on the cutting edge, you might want to try GST. No, it's not some weird diet drug -- GST stands for Grace Somatomorphic Technique, and according to the website, "is comprised of three unique components that use dynamic movement, oppositional force and friction to achieve radical body transformation."
Riiiiight. So, what does that mean? Essentially, we're talking about a mixture of yoga, Pilates, and Capoeria. Rather than holding specific positions, in GST, you move your body through positions using equipment providing oppositional force. From what I can see, it's a tough workout, but I, for one, would love to give it a try!

It's great for dancers and people recovering from injuries, but GST Body encourages everyone to give it a try. Once you learn the movements, you can start doing them at home and even incorporate them into your workout. You can see a video of some of the moves here, and learn more about GST here.
