The GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods are complementary exercise methods that fall under one umbrella - the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®. Both methods were developed by Juliu Horvath, an ethnic Hungarian, professional dancer from Romania. Horvath suffered a series of debilitating injuries during his dance career, and began developing what are now known as the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Methods as a way to heal himself and regain his strength and agility.
GYROTONIC exercises are performed on custom-designed GYROTONIC equipment, whereas GYROKINESIS exercises are performed on a mat and chair. Both exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breath. 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 and is really is something anyone can do; young or old, fit or unfit, people recovering from an injury or those who are 100 percent healthy.
HERE'S WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT US
Your class has been wonderful, it has made me aware of my body, that I have become stronger; I plan a lifetime commitment to Pilates.
I feel stronger and fitter than I ever have, and I have a new-found respect and, dare I say it, affection for my body – pretty remarkable for a 50-year-old woman.
I have learned so much about proper movement and core strengthening at this facility. Every instructor that I have met and worked with has been professional in their approach, yet seem to have very open hearts. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking better health and core strength.
