The Gyrotonic® method is an exercise modality, developed by Julio Horvath, which has roots in yoga, tai chi, gymnastics and dance. Gyrotonic® sequences simultaneously stretch and strengthen muscles and tendons while also articulating and mobilizing the joints.
A favorite of ballet dancers and elite athletes looking for balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility, Gyrotonic® is composed of spiraling, circular movements paired with corresponding breath patterns. The exercises flow together seamlessly, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. This allows for truly functional movement that translates into better movement in real life. Performed on specially designed equipment that increases the functional capacity of the spine and strengthens the entire body, results from the Gyrotonic® method include increased coordination, endurance, aerobic activity and neuromuscular connection.
