Stretching, strengthening, lengthening, twisting, spiraling, energizing and invigorating are just some of the words our clients use to describe the exercises found in the Gyrotonic & Gyrokinesis workouts. The Gyrotonic method is the most unique holistic approach to movement, exercise, and rehabilitation. Its movement signature is circular motion which works to simultaneously stretch and strengthen the body. Gyrotonic exercises are performed on custom-designed equipment made with pulleys and weights which support total freedom of movement with no restriction to speed or versatility of movement; while Gyrokinesis exercises are performed on a mat and chair –a little like a flowing yoga class but with more fluid motion and joint action.
Offering similar benefits also derived from dance, gymnastics, yoga, swimming and tai chi. The Gyrotonic Expansion System is described by many exercise professionals as a breakthrough system for fitness and rehabilitative exercise. Unlike conventional exercise programs and their machines which utilize linear movement patterns, Gyrotonic exercise incorporates three-dimensional circular motion to promote coordinated and efficient movement throughout the body while simultaneously strengthening to bring about a sense of equilibrium. This circular approach to movement bridges the gap between contraction and extension where most injuries occur and brings balance to the musculoskeletal structure, by utilizing the natural patterns and shapes in the human body, which are comprised of circles and spirals.
Clients immediately report feeling taller and stronger within one or two sessions. The most frequently reported changes in the body include postural improvement and alignment awareness. At the foundation of Gyrotonic exercise is profound sense of stability and strength in the low back created partially by its focus on abdominal and core strength. For most athletes the result is decreased incidence of sports related injury and low-back pain. Whether you are already an accomplished athlete or dance professional looking to supplement your current training or someone who hasn't exercised in years Gyrotonic workouts result in increased strength, flexibility and coordination.
