The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is an innovative exercise and rehabilitation system, offering similar benefits also derived from Yoga, Tai Chi and dance. It is based on circular and spiral spinal movements intended to lengthen, strengthen and supple the body. For over 30 years, GYROTONIC® method creator, Juliu Horvath, has refined a complete system of exercise sequences that are performed in two complementary methods: GYROTONIC® exercises, which use custom-designed Gyrotonic equipment, and Gyrokinesis exercises, which are performed on a mat. The natural rhythmic flow of the movements when combined with breath increase strength, flexibility, efficiency and balance throughout the entire body. For more information, please see the official website at www.gyrotonic.com.
The GYROKINESIS® Method is a movement class that addresses the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. Although often compared with other movement systems, is original and unique, coordinating movement, breath and mental focus.
Practiced on a mat and chair, without equipment, participants in a GYROKINESIS® class are more dependent on their own proprioception to explore movement sequences.
