GYROTONIC® is a unique movement method for all ages and physical abilities that draws from the principles of yoga, tai chi, swimming, and dance.
Developed by Juliu Horvath in 1982, the GYROTONIC® method utilizes circular, flowing movements, which blend together rhythmically. These exercises allow each movement to flow into the next, allowing the joints, muscles and limbs to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression while simultaneously stretching and strengthening the muscles and muscle attachments.
GYROTONIC® exercise invites you to meet your body where you are at and then move, breathe and expand into your full self. The system calms and invigorates your mind, body and spirit so that you experience a feeling of connection throughout.
The exercises are performed on unique equipment that offers both support and resistance and is fully adjustable for any body type. Exercises include arching, curling, spiraling, and undulating movements that are combined with breath work to create rhythm and flow.
GYROTONIC® sessions complement other fitness activities, and help to prevent sore muscles and strains. GYROTONIC® training is used worldwide in rehabilitative settings as well, making the system beneficial and enjoyable for everyone!
GYROTONIC® exercises can be adapted to fit all abilities. People from all walks of life, including accomplished athletes, dancers, working professionals, senior citizens, and people with disabilities practice the GYROTONIC® method.
