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.

There is no prerequisite to attend our GYROKINESIS® classes. All are welcome!MIND BODY Class SCHEDULER
GYROKINESIS® class uses the natural element of spinal movements through chair, floor and standing sequences, flowing from one movement to another. Each class progresses through seven types of spinal motions: forward, backward, left side, right side, left twist, right twist and circular. Rhythmic movements, systematic progressions, and specialized breathing patterns enhance your body’s fluidity and flexibility.
GYROKINESIS® was developed by Juliu Horvath. The motion concept includes the most important elements of yoga, dance and tai chi.
GYROKINESIS® systematically and gently trains joints and muscles by rhythmic wavelike movements. The spine is considered the central supporting element which gains new flexibility by harmonic wavelike, spiral and circular movements. The corresponding breathing patterns stimulate the nervous system and open up the body meridiens thus releasing waste products and toxic substances that can be taken away by the oxygen-enhanced bloodstream.
The flowing movement prevents static held-up positions and thereby superfluous body waste deposit and tensions.
The method stimulates energy in a natural way and helps to overcome listlessness and lethargy. The training is done in groups standing up as well as lying down. The complete training program is done without any training machines so the acquired exercises can be partially repeated at home or at work to relax the body from one-sided working positions.
People of all ages and different lifestyles benefit by this method, from therapy to high performance training for competitive athletes.
