What is Gyrotonic?
The Gyrotonic Expansion System® (GXS) was developed by Juliu Horvath. Based on movements derived from dance, kundalini yoga, swimming and tai chi, Gyrotonic focuses on the spine to create fluid undulating movements, stretching and strengthening muscles to create an integrated workout. A Gyrotonic session will leave you feeling taller, stronger, energized and happier.
The Gyrokinesis foundation exercises begin with simple exercises on a stool, kneeling, lying on the floor or standing. Sessions progress to specifically designed equipment, most notably the “Tower Pulley Combination Unit” or several other pieces of equipment which enhance a Gyrotonic experience.
Fluidity of movement
Working the body with an emphasis on multiple joint articulations, improving the spine to move three dimensionally, and layering specific breathing patterns coordinated with the movement, results in a delightful feeling of equilibrium. Designed to each individual’s body, the smoothness and friction free gliding that is experienced with each movement, allows the body to find continuity as it moves from the center to one side of the body and over to the other side. This relief from jarring motion is the key ingredient that prevents injuries from occurring.
