The GYROTONIC® & GYROKINESIS® Methods
"The human body has its restrictions. But I can model the body - within the framework of its restrictions - to be free." Juliu Horvath
About the GYROTONIC® Method
The Gyrotonic method is an original and unique movement practice which has roots in yoga, tai-chi, and dance. Gyrotonic exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breath. With Gyrotonic exercises, each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility.
The body is designed to work as one harmonious system, to follow arcing and spiraling paths of motion, and to transition from one movement to the next smoothly, and efficiently. Gyrotonic method creator, Juliu Horvath, designed a specialized line of equipment around these natural movement patterns of the human body.
Because Gyrotonic equipment is highly adjustable, it can be customized to fit each persons unique physique and ability, adapting for things such as height, arm and leg length and physical ability.
The numerous benefits include:
Better spinal, shoulder, and hip mobility
Strengthening of the nervous system
Greater sense perception
Enhanced strength and flexibility
Increased vitality and energy
Greater core support and connection
Gentle cardiovascular stimulation
Increased lung function
Improved overall mobility
About the GYROKINESIS® Method
Also developed by Juliu Horvath, the Gyrokinesis method is a movement system that gently works the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, cardiovascular stimulation, and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing sequences. It is an original, and unique movement practice which has roots in Yoga, Tai Chi, gymnastics, and dance. The Gyrokinesis method is practiced in movement studios around the world under the instruction of Certified Gyrokinesis Trainers, and can also be practiced at home by those with enough experience.
