Developed by Juliu Horvath, GYROTONIC® training uses sweeping, spherical motions to stretch and strengthen through every conceivable plane of motion. This unique equipment is quite different from ordinary weight machines which are designed in a linear fashion using box-shaped movements.
Based on yoga and energetic principles, this intelligent movement system uses breath and free-flowing movements to enhance health and improve spinal mobility. The results are supple, powerful, lean, and coordinated muscles. Whatever your physical condition, your body will thank you.
The Gyrotonic Method is an original and unique movement method that addresses the entire person by opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and improving strength and movement efficiency. 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 Gyrotonic Method utilizes specialized equipment to guide, assist, and challenge the exerciser.
People from all walks of life take Gyrotonic classes, including fitness enthusiasts, senior citizens, accomplished athletes, and people recovering from an injury or dealing with a disability. Gyrotonic exercises help athletes improve their performance, and rehabilitation clients recover more quickly and fully post injury.
The Gyrotonic Method is practiced in group or private classes under the instruction of a qualified Gyrotonic Trainer.
The human 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. Because Gyrotonic equipment is highly adjustable, it can be customized to fit each person’s unique physique and ability, adapting for things such as height, arm/leg length and range of motion.
