The GYROTONIC® Method is an original and unique movement method that addresses the entire person, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing the range of motion, and improving strength and movement efficiency. The GYROTONIC® method is practiced in a group or private classes under the instruction of a qualified GYROTONIC® Trainer. 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 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.
What can people expect?
With GYROKINESIS® method, you start on a stool to warm up your spine and then progress to the floor to address hips, back and abs. GYROTONIC® employs a similar progression but uses custom equipment designed to allow movement with resistance and support. Either way, you get an intense workout that makes you sweat. You’ll leave feeling like you’ve had a full body massage.
Who can benefit?
Everyone. GYROTONIC® method can be modified for all fitness levels, from professional athletes to the physically disabled.
What’s the significance of arching the spine?
Ordinarily, gravitational forces pull us down and inward, toward spinal flexion and organ compression. To create a more ideal posture, GYROTONIC® exercises work to lengthen the spine into a natural and comfortable upright position. Your body naturally wants to arch!
What’s the role of breath?
Each exercise has a matching breath pattern, creating cardiovascular stimulation, either gentle or vigorous, depending on the intensity of execution. This allows us to generate and rejuvenate our bodies’ energies.
How often should you perform these workouts?
Two to three per week is best. That could mean two studio sessions and one at home, or a combination of GYROKINESIS® group classes and GYROTONIC® private lessons. Everyone’s needs are different.
What are the top benefits if you keep it up?
GYROTONIC® exercise increases strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, and posture; it stimulates and strengthens connective tissue; and it reduces stress and tension throughout your body. Ultimately, GYROTONIC® exercise teaches the body to regenerate and reorganize itself into a more desirable and supple form. The real benefits come from you, and they come from within. But we’re always here to help!
