The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®, with its spiral and circular motions, naturally stimulates the nervous system and the cooperation of muscles and respiration. This increases coordination, balance, strength and flexibility. The system is based on the principles of Yoga, Tai Chi, Dance, Swimming and Gymnastics.
Juliu Horvath, a former dancer, developed these methods based on his insights into movement and healing. The system consists of the GYROKINESIS® Method, which is practiced without equipment and typically in a group, and the GYROTONIC® Method, performed on the devices typically in one-on-one sessions or duet format. RITUEL STUDIO will add Gyrotonics to our list of one-on-one offerings in the near future.
“[These are] an original and unique movement method that addresses the entire person, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and improving strength and movement efficiency.” - www.gyrotonic.com
