Intention is the driving force that moves the body ~ Juliu Horvath
The GYROTONIC® Method
The Gyrotonic method is an original, and unique movement practice which has roots in Yoga, Tai Chi, and dance. Gyrotonic exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breath. WIth Gyrotonic exercises, each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility.
Gyrotonic classes can be adapted to fit anyone's ability.
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is a holistic approach to movement that is designed to meet the needs of people of all ages and abilities. GYROTONIC® students are both young and old, recovering from illness or injury and healthy. Some of the benefits of GYROTONIC® exercises include increased strength and flexibility, renewed energy and vitality and a general sense of calm and well being.
The body is designed to work as one harmonious system, to follow arcing and spiraling paths of motion, and to transition from one movement to the next smoothly, and efficiently. Gyrotonic method creator, Juliu Horvath, designed a specialized line of equipment around these natural movement patterns of the human body.
I love how Gyrotonic method allows your joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. We use the carefully crafted sequences to give you more mobility and openness in the joints as well as strength and flexibility for more efficient movement quality in your life.
"The ultimate aim is to be at home with ones body, to be at one with the nature of oneself, and to experience exercise as a creative and delightful experience." Juliu Horvath
