The GYROTONIC® Method 

About

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.
 

Specialized Equipment

 

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.

 

For Everyone

 

Gyrotonic classes can be adapted to fit anyone's ability. The Gyrotonic method is practiced by people from all walks of life, including accomplished athletes and dancers, college students, baby boomers, senior citizens, and people with disabilities.
