Gyrotonic Training

THE GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® reflects a new paradigm in the understanding of human movement.  This work uniquely prepares us to respond with resilience and good will to the demands of the modern environment. The arching, spiraling, undulating, pulsating movements are breath centered, rhythmic, and of sophisticated and utterly natural spatiality.  There is a pleasant sensuality inherent in the work, it feels good doing it, and feels good afterwards.    

There are two main branches of this work, GYROTONIC®  and GYROKINESIS®.  While the work as a whole is referred to as Gyrotonic, more specifically, the term is used to mean work on various pieces of equipment designed by Juliu Horvath, the founder of the work. Gyrokinesis refers to work done without the equipment, rather using chairs or low stools for seated exercises, and mats for work on the floor, seated, on all fours, kneeling, prone, supine, and side-lying. Classes often end with standing and travelling exercises.

The Gyrotonic methodology has applications to all human movement. Many people use it as an enhancement to their fitness programs. The pulsating, elongating movements aid in recovery from other fitness activities, enhance the experience of other activities, and tend to prevent sore muscles and strains. Professional dancers and elite athletes benefit profoundly from the work, preventing and recovering from injury, expanding their movement and dynamic range, and connecting the dots, so to speak, in the relation of the body to the space within which it moves.

There are also therapeutic applications of the work. People discover that a regular practice mends and prevents back pain, aids in recovery from accidents, illness, and surgeries, addresses scoliosis and other structural issues in a very supportive manner, helps make the aging process more pleasant, and generally makes life and movement more enjoyable.

Initially dubbed “yoga for dancers”, the Gyrotonic Expansion System® was created by Juliu Horvath, a former world-class ballet dancer, and is a growing fitness phenomenon being discovered by professional athletes and dancers, as well as people from all walks of life. We invite you to experience what Pilates Style magazine has dubbed “the next big thing”, and see how it can boost your overall fitness and wellness.
