What is GYROTONIC® exercise?
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® was conceived by Juliu Horvath. This unique method draws from key principals of yoga, ballet, gymnastics, and swimming, which mobilize and articulate the joints through a series of circular movements. The spine is stimulated from end to end, moving in 360 degrees – the way in which it is designed to move. The exercises are performed on specialized equipment, designed to allow maximum freedom of movement. GYROTONIC® exercise simultaneously stretches and strengthens the entire body with minimal effort.
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® allows users to stretch and strengthen muscles, while simultaneously stimulating and strengthening connective tissues in and around the joints of the body. The entire circulatory system is stimulated through breathing techniques paired with undulating circular and spiraling movements, thus enhancing aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation and promoting neuro-muscular rejuvenation. The system can dramatically increase range of motion, flexibility and coordination.
