GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® was developed by Juliu Horvath, a professional dancer from Romania. Having suffered a series of debilitating injuries during his career he began developing the Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis Methods as a way to regain his strength and agility.
GYROTONIC® exercises are performed on custom equipment, designed to support the body by making it more weightless, akin to moving in water. A series of tri-planar movements flow with the breath to strengthen and open the abdominals and the spine. The equipment allows muscles to both work and release as it guides the joints through a harmonious range of motion. The potential result is a strong, flexible and more pain-free body.
GYROTONIC® exercise is good for:
- pre and postpartum
- cross training for runners, cyclists, dancers and athletes
- strengthening pre and post surgery (with approval from a doctor)
- muscle tension
- back, hip, shoulder and neck pain
