Cherie DeHaven is a GYROTONIC® Master Trainer, GYROKINESIS® Pre Trainer and movement educator based in London and Amsterdam. She is a natural mover with a broad movement background including yoga, qigong and dance.
As well as training for many years with GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® creator Juliu Horvath she has trained extensively with many Specialised Master Trainers in the US, the UK, Europe and Brasil. Cherie is influenced also by the work of Hilary Cartwright, Vanda Scaravelli, Liz Koch, Gary Carter and Cain Carroll.
It is her goal to facilitate the creation of conscious embodiment in herself and her students; to both understand something of the anatomy of the physical body and also to see more than just the external physical expression to a deeper more integrated whole being. She is committed to helping people bring conscious awareness to their bodies to bring balance, freedom of movement, strength, flexibility and wholeness.
The GYROTONIC® method with its integration of fluid natural movements, breath, energy and rhythm has been a seminal part of Cherie’s personal development, one which she truly enjoys sharing.
She has also practiced yoga and meditation for over 24 years and considers herself a lifelong student of movement.

Cherie has been myGYROTONIC® teacher for some 5 years. From our first session I knew that I would benefit from her skill and knowledge and so it has proved. She was hugely experienced then and she has continued to develop her own knowledge and practice and I have reaped the rewards of that growth. I know my body so much more than I did when we started and Cherie’s intuitive style of teaching ensures that we work on the best thing for me that day. I try to see her twice a week, and I always leave the studio feeling better in my body.GYROTONIC® – and Cherie – bring me joy.
