Mark Hagen has a BA in Sociology, minor in Philosophy from the
University of Minnesota. After working in banking and real estate,
Mark moved out to the Northwest for the skiing and sailing.
Mark was introduced to the GYROTONIC® method by a ballet teacher. Within minutes on the tower he knew the value of the training. Though he came to the GYROTONIC® method through dance, it reminded him of his training in kung-fu and chi-kung in his teens and twenties. Mark is a certified training in the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods as well as all the specialized GYROTONIC® equipment. He continues to train under Master Trainer Karen Mullen.
Teaching at the GYROTONIC® Movement Center has given him the opportunity to combine his love of movement with the joy of helping people reach their goals. When Mark is not at the studio, he is playing with his two kids, his wife, in the hills or doing Tia Chi.
