Designed for People of All Ages and Abilities
GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® offer a holistic approach to movement designed for people of all ages and abilities, young and old, recovering from illness or injury and healthy. The practice was invented by Juliu Horvath, a former ballet dancer and competitive swimmer and gymnast who recognized the importance of developing inner strength to support muscular and skeletal health for life long flexibility and movement.
The GYROTONIC® method centers on an exclusive weight and pulley system that provides both assistance and resistance to promote fluidity and elongation of muscles and joints. The GYROTONIC® system gently pushes you to go beyond your capacity, helping to increase bodily movement.
Our clients’ consistently report that GYROTONIC® has improved their balance, range of motion, flexibility and overall fitness.
GYROKINESIS® is a series of seated and floor mat movements that incorporate the principles of yoga, Qi Gong, and tai chi. The emphasis is on continuous movements combined with special breathing patterns that flow seamlessly together stimulating the nervous system, opening the energy pathways of the body (Qi), and oxygenating the blood.
GYROKINESIS® focuses on spinal movement with arches and curls that expand the vertebra, increasing fluidity and your range of motion.
Unlike many conventional exercises where linear, isolated movement patterns are often performed, GYROTONIC® training emphasizes multiple joint articulation and strengthening attachments to muscles with natural movement patterns.
