GYROTONIC® methodology embodies the idea that there are no straight lines in nature, and that everything that lives moves.
Therefore GYROTONIC® movements are three dimensional – circular, spiral, arching, twisting, and undulating in a continuous flow or dance of life, breath and movement.
Inspired by yoga, tai chi, swimming, and gymnastics GYROTONIC® exercises offer complete freedom of movement, increasing the functional capacity of the spine and improving flexibility and strength throughout the body as a whole.
Synchronized with specific breathing patterns, the exercises enhance aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation in order to cleanse, invigorate and rejuvenate the mind and body.
The exercises can be made simple and gentle for those requiring a relaxing or rehabilitation session, or they can be comprehensive and dynamic to create an invigorating cardiovascular workout.
GYROTONIC® is performed on unique, beautiful handcrafted wooden equipment that uses pulley, spring, friction and weighted resistances, resulting in a similar experience to that of moving through water. The equipment is fully adjustable enabling it to meet the needs and requirements of people from every movement modality.
“The ultimate aim is to be at home in one’s body, experience greater freedom of movement, to feel unrestricted and uninhibited, to be free from pain, to be at one with the nature of oneself, and to experience exercise as a creative and delightful experience.” – Juliu Horvath
