Gyrotonic® / Gyrokinesis®
 
Gyrotonic® and Gyrokinesis® are low impact expansion fitness systems created by Juliu Horvath that incorporates key principles from yoga, dance, gymnastics, and swimming. It’s a system that gently and simultaneously stretches and strengthens the muscles and joints, while emphasizing multiple joint articulation and the strengthening of the surrounding ligaments and tendons. This allows for increased joint mobility and range of motion. Exercises are rhythmic and undulating, requiring the coordination of largely circular, three-dimensional movements and specific breath patterns as to achieve fluidity and stimulate the body’s organs and aerobic activity. The exercises stimulate energy flow throughout the body, which in turn enhances the functioning of the immune and lymphatic systems.

Individual Gyrotonic® Training

Gyrotonic® makes use of equipment such as the Pulley Tower Combination Unit, Jumping Board, Ladder, and Gyrotoner®. Gyrotonic® equipment are fully adjustable to meet the needs of any body type and fitness level and are designed in such a way as to offer complete freedom of movement, unlike conventional exercise equipment where linear or isolated movement patterns are performed and tend to jar beginning and end movements where most injuries occur.

Group Gyrokinesis® Classes

Gyrokinesis® consists of a stool and mat series. The class begins with self massage and simple breathing patterns while seated on a stool to awaken the body, followed by movements to mobilize the spine through a series of arching, curling, bending, twisting, and spiraling. Movement patterns emphasize expansion to release the joints in all possible directions. Maximum class size is 15 people.
