About choosing the name Raritan Valley GYROTONIC®

“Alternatively, Raritan is a Dutch pronunciation of wawitan or rarachons, meaning, “forked river” or “stream overflows”

Why did I choose Raritan Valley as my Gyrotonic licensed name?
It actually required some time and research. I needed to choose a name that reveals a location. As I am located in New Jersey and with so many small towns here I did not want to limit myself to one town in the event I move location of my Studio. And I wanted a natural geographical connection.
In my research I discovered that the Raritan Valley is a very large northeastern part of New Jersey that reaches all the way to the New York Bay.
The Raritan River is about 75 miles long formed by the confluence of two tributaries in north-central New Jersey and flowing eastward to Raritan Bay, the western arm of Lower New York Bay, at Perth Amboy.
So the Raritan River became my geographical connection here in New Jersey.
Beyond this Raritan was the name given by Europeans in the seventeenth century who colonized the region around what is now called the Raritan River and its bay, to the Native American bands of Lenape people then living in what now northeastern New Jersey and Staten Island, New York Island.
Raritan is generally believed that the name comes from one of the Lenape languages (among the languages in the Algonquian language group), though there are a variety of interpretations as to its meaning. It may be a derivation of Naraticong [1] meaning “river beyond the island”, or Roaton or Raritanghe, names of a group which had come from across the Hudson and displaced the previous population known as Sanhican. (who moved to farther into the interior). Alternatively, Raritan is a Dutch pronunciation of wawitan or rarachons, meaning, “forked river” or “stream overflows”.
Along with a rich geographical and historical meaning the name Raritan Valley also moves us to the present with NJT Raritan Valley line that connects New Jersey to New York City.

Raritan valley Gyrotonic is a boutique studio specializing exclusively in the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®.
Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis exercise methods Designed to take the body “beyond its current limitations,” Gyrotonic training stretches, strengthens and elongates muscles, stimulating connective tissue in and around the joints and improving balance, coordination, strength and flexibility. Juliu Horvath, creator and founder of the Gyrotonic Expansion System® Horvath believes that exercise should be a creative and playful experience: “I want music in my body and poetry in my body, and I want to be skillful without struggle; it has to come without struggle.”

The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is composed of Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis exercise methods.
The Gyrokinesis program, originally called “Yoga for Dancers,” which works the entire body without equipment by stimulating internal organs through fluid and gentle manipulation of multiple joints; and Gyrotonic training, which uses apparatus that permits the person to move with support and resistance. Both forms of exercise allow the body to work in continuous, flowing movements and are synchronized with corresponding breathing patterns. Advocates of the work say it enhances aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation and promotes neuromuscular rejuvenation.

Gyrotonic exercises are performed on custom-designed Gyrotonic equipment, whereas Gyrokinesis exercises are performed on a mat and chair. Both Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breath. Each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility.

Personal Gyrotonic Sessions and Gyrotonic training include the use of all the specialized Gyrotonic equipment giving you the opportunity to explore all of the specialized Gyrotonic equipment — Archway, Jumping-Stretch board, Leg extension unit and GYROTONER®.

*The GYROTONER®, which duplicates the movements of the human body in multiple planes, is beneficial for shoulder, elbow and wrist rehabilitation. It has handle and foot units that operate either separately or together.
*The Jumping Stretching Board, a versatile apparatus that stretches and strengthens the torso, is especially useful for lateral movement of the lower limbs.
*The Archway is designed to increase proprioceptive understanding and enable optimum stretching.
*The Leg Extension Unit, used for the lower body, is considered effective for knee, foot and ankle therapy.
All the equipment is designed to provide joint articulation without compression, the goal being to distribute the work evenly between agonist and antagonist muscle groups. The apparatus accommodates all body types and strength levels. It is currently being used in therapeutic, dance, sport-specific and general conditioning facilities, in addition to Gyrotonic exercise studios.

NEW to the schedule is Gyrotonic Duet sessions share the class with a friend or partner.

GYROTONIC® pulley Tower Duet class, 2 person class.

The Gyrotonic Pulley Tower is elegantly designed around the human form to assist with exercises that use Gyrokinesis principles. The equipment allows more power and support while counterbalancing, creating space in the joints. The system is fully adjustable and can meet the needs of varying body types and levels of strength. The flowing, 3-dimensional, circular, spiral, twisting and undulating patterns that characterize the system help to increase the functional capacity of the spine.

The Pulley Tower Combination Unit is the most widely used piece of Gyrotonic Equipment. It is the result of over thirty years of research and development. The pulley tower provides smooth, even support and resistance via a unique, weighted pulley system, adjustable bench and rotating handle.

Rhythm and Flow is the key to the class working the entire body from head to toes from inside to the outside! Some of the benefits Increased functional capacity of the spine, better coordination, overall increased strength, flexibility and Increased mobility of the joints and the use of the fullest capacity in all directions and Improves circulation with an excellent cardio benefits.

Raritan Valley Gyrotonic will also be offering small Group Gyrokinesis classes 3-4 person classes.
Gyrokinesis for me is the foundation of the entire method!!! A Gyrokinesis class is done without equipment, using a stool and mat. The classes are 60-90 minute.
The Gyrokinesis program, which forms the core of Horvath’s methodology, works the entire body through seven natural elements of spinal motion: forward, backward, left side, right side, left twist, right twist and circular. Horvath describes the movement as fluid, continuous and harmonious: “It goes out, and then it comes back. It is like dropping a pebble in the middle of a lake; the wave starts spreading and then comes back.”
