The GYROTONIC Expansion System® is an original, and unique movement method that enables simultaneous lengthening and strengthening of muscles, stimulates circulation, and enhances joint mobility, and coordination. GYROTONIC® exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breathing patterns. 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.
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.
Because GYROTONIC® equipment is highly adjustable, it can be customized to fit each persons unique physique, and ability, adapting for things such as height, arm and leg length and physical ability.
GYROTONIC® classes can be adapted to fit anyone’s ability. The GYROTONIC® method is practiced by people from all walks of life, including accomplished athletes and dancers, college students, baby boomers, senior citizens, and people with disabilities.
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® and GYROTONIC® exercises include increased strength and flexibility, renewed energy and vitality and a general sense of calm and well being.
