GYROTONIC® EXPANSION SYSTEM was developed by Juliu Horvath, who patented his ideas and designed the ergonomically correct wood crafted machines that are used for GYROTONIC®.
It is a powerful system of exercise for conditioning, stretching, strength, balance, and flexibility. The exercises build muscular strength and promote stability around the joints, enabling increased range of motion. People of all ages and all levels of fitness can participate.
Some of the benefits that may be gained by practicing the GYROTONIC® methods are increased circulation; cardiovascular stimulation; increased mobility of the joints; stimulation, and strengthening of the nervous system; mobilization of the spine; improved sense perception; greater balance, and flow of energy and improved coordination.
The unique GYROTONIC® EXPANSION SYSTEM , utilizes elements of tai chi, yoga, swimming and dance to offer a totally original workout based on the natural circular and spiraling movement potential of the spine and joints.
Special attention is paid to the spine, gently releasing old tension patterns, thereby improving and increasing the spine’s full movement capacity. As the spine releases tension, the flexibility of the pelvis and hips increases as well. As the pelvis opens and releases, tension in the neck, shoulders, and limbs also decrease. This release of tension allows you to work your entire body in a balanced way, resulting in greater freedom of movement for a deeper workout as well as the reduction, or even elimination, of chronic aches and pains.
GYROTONIC® exercise educates the entire body, including your nervous system, toward a new way of being. Through regular practice you free your body from restrictions and move with effortless strength and grace. Your spine is decompressed, your joints freer, your breathing is fuller and you are more deeply connected to yourself.
GYROKINESIS® exercise can be enjoyed on the specialized equipment or in a mat class setting, called GYROKINESIS®. Foundational GYROTONIC® exercise principles are integrated into your first session while you move your body within its full range, enjoying a challenging workout at your present abillity level.
GYROTONIC® Equipment – The specialized equipment is a pulley-based weight system that eliminates the jarring often found with traditional gym equipment, guiding you to move smoothly and fully through your natural range of movement. Stool and mat exercises are integrated in these first sessions as well, allowing you to increase your understanding, strength and flexibility level between sessions at home.
GYROKINESIS® – Mat Class The mat class format, GYROKINESIS®, offers 60-minutes of continuous movement done while seated on a stool and lying on a mat. Flow and rhythm are emphasized as the body is moved in all directions in a safe range at a moderate, steady pace. Challenge is increased by adding standing and aerobic exercises. Modifications can be implemented for those with special challenges allowing everyone to enjoy the benefits of GYROTONIC® exercise.
