What if you could get the affects of a massage through your workout? That feeling of well-restedess, freedom in your joints, ease in your muscles and spine…
Now add to that a deep, strong core and you have The Gyrotonic Expansion System®.
Gyrotonic® exercises focus simultaneously on stretching the spine, expanding the breath, lengthening the limbs, and deepening the core. Created by Juliu Horvath initially as a rehabilitation practice for himself, Gyrotonic® exercise is also extremely healing, balancing, and feels natural to the body.
It is a breath of fresh air.
The movements share thematic spiraling, circular motions that follow one another fluidly – creating a comfortable rhythm for the joints to move within a natural range of motion.
The equipment utilizes weights and pulleys, while Gyrokinesis® mat class is done sans apparatus – your own body provides the resistance.
Like Pilates, it too uses few repetitions and has rhythymic flow – so you’re always moving. It too can be done by anyone as it is low impact and easily adjustable to your level and strength.
The mat version of Gyrotonic® exercise – no equipment is used – only the body’s own resistance; done seated, standing, and on mat.
