The fundamentals of the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® consists of a totally new exercise system, using GYROKINESIS® as the basis to exercise the musculature while mobilizing and articulating the joints. The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is a unique system of equipment and exercise that incorporates movement principles from yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai-chi. Created by Juliu Horvath, this system stretches and strengthens muscles, while simultaneously stimulating and strengthening connective tissues in and around the joints of the body. The uniqueness of the System is that it simultaneously stretches and strengthens the body with minimal effort, while increasing range of motion and developing coordination. Exercises, synchronized with corresponding breathing patterns, enhance aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation and promote neuromuscular rejuvenation.
The GYROTONIC® equipment is designed around the human body thus offering complete freedom of movement with no restriction to speed and versatility. It is fully adjustable to meet the needs of every body type and level of strength. The even constant resistance in the handle unit and pulley tower (through the triple reduction in the pulleys) completely eliminates the jarring in the beginning and end of a movement found in conventional exercise equipment, where most injuries occur. Unique to the GYROTONIC® system is the circularity, spiraling and undulating movements increase the functional capacity of the spine and create a spherical and three-dimensional awareness, resulting in total equilibrium.
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is used worldwide by people of all ages in therapeutic, dance, sports specific and general conditioning facilities. To be entitled to professional use of this technique you must be a certified GYROTONIC® trainer.
GYROKINESIS® is a workout that uses a series of organic physical, rhythmic movements and breaths that can help shift one into a new physical, mental and spiritual place. It is sometimes described as a mixture of dance, tai chi, yoga, and gymnastics all in one.
The body is taken through seven natural elements of spinal movement. GYROKINESIS® gently works the joints muscles and stimulates the internal organs through rhythmic and undulating exercises. Fluidity is the key.
There is no equipment needed other than a stool and a mat and the movements are gentle undulations of the body so they are accessible to all levels and ages of exerciser. Because of the simple combination of mind, body and spirit through movement and breath, GYROKINESIS® is a more intelligent and gently spiritual type of exercise. It is exercise for all lifestyles. It is designed to fit into any space in one's life or any mood. It allows the individual to choose their own challenge.
We each have our own natural rhythm. Traditional methods of exercise tend to have a rigidity that forces us to conform our bodies to a specific ideal figure and movement. GYROKINESIS® allows us to access and open our bodies from where we are now, in the present moment. Starting with the spine, all movements spiral from our centers, building a natural, fluid strength and energy from the inside out. Using the breath in conjunction with movement, we can more effectively draw in oxygen and energy while breathing out congestion and blockages. GYROKINESIS® is an embracing rather than imposing method of exercise.
Pilates teaches you to support your body internally with efficiency and ease while transforming the way your body looks, feels and functions. It was often originally used by dancers and athletes because it builds strength without building bulk and creates more a sleek and toned effect as it lengthens muscles. But now the world has discovered the benefits of Pilates for your overall alignment, posture and motor control. Who does Pilates? All walks of life, including models, mothers, office workers, golfers, children, celebrities. As Pilates is an effective method for addressing a variety of musculoskeletal challenges and imbalances it is therefore an excellent source to use when recovering from injury or even wishing to use as injury prevention.
Our instructors will tailor your session to your individual needs in a series of exercises on the Mat or Reformer Apparatus with spring-loaded tension. Pilates will challenge your entire body while you focus on alignment, breathing, flow and coordination. Practiced faithfully, the internalized knowledge brought about through Pilates becomes a way of moving with awareness and inner strength that transfers to greater ease in your daily activities and sports.
