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.

GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® provides an excellent workout that delivers results!

video produced by Gyrotonic HQ
As far as fitness and health programs are concerned, the general rule of thumb is that the more effective the workout, the more difficult the program will be to begin. Oftentimes, people who are new to working out will try one of these difficult regimens in an attempt to achieve impressive results as fast as possible and then end up giving up on the routine because of its difficulty – sometimes even swearing off fitness altogether.

Conversely, the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® provides an excellent workout that delivers results and is entirely accessible by anyone. Furthermore, a regular fitness routine that includes GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® offers a number of health benefits that go far beyond a toned body. Because of all this, the the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® – exercise newcomer or seasoned athlete alike – looking to take their fitness up a level. The following are reasons why the mind-body workout method is so beneficial for everyone:

Increase Core Strength
Other than crunches or sit ups, most people don’t pay enough attention to the body’s core. This is particularly problematic since having a fit core helps achieve physical gains for the rest of the body as well. Most of the sets offered in GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® activate and strengthen the entire core, which ends up building confidence in practitioners.

Promotes Incredible Flexibility
People who are just starting out with the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® remark that they didn’t realize just how inflexible they are. This is doubly true for those who have a history of fitness under their belts as running and weight lifting, while great for their individual goals, end up tightening any joints that don’t get shown attention. GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® will get your entire body moving and reaching levels of flexibility you never thought would be possible.

Alignment Awareness
Along with being able to stretch and move your body better, the Gyrotonic system will enhance the way your bones work with each other. With this workout method, you will become more aware of the way that your skeletal system is aligned and make correcting posture or movement deficiencies an effortless task.

Reduces Risk of Injury and Joint Pain
By building both your flexibility and strength, GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS gives your body the capacity to participate in activities that you may have previously been afraid to do because of fear of injury or pain aggravation. Because of this great benefit, this body evolution system is often prescribed as an effective form of physical therapy. (If you’re a physical therapist or fitness instructor, you can also contact us for Gyrotonic teacher training in NYC and New Jersey.)

Surprisingly Relaxing
One of the most beneficial traits that comes with taking GYROTONIC® or GYROKINESIS® classes is that it relaxes people as they complete the workout session. The exercise program has its sets fluidly move from one into another in a rhythmic and circular pattern, which makes for an incredibly relaxing experience.

What is GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® exercise?
The Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods are complementary exercise methods that fall under one umbrella- the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®. Both methods were developed by Juliu Horvath, an ethnic Hungarian, professional dancer from Romania. Horvath suffered a series of debilitating injuries during his dance career, and began developing what are now known as the Gyrotonic® and Gyrokinesis Methods as a way to heal himself and regain his strength and agility. 

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. 

Since the thirty plus years since Horvath began developing the Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods, the Gyrotonic Expansion System has grown to include a global community of over 7,800 Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis Trainers teaching in 52 countries.

GYROKINESIS® group class 60-90 minute 3 students max There is no prerequisite to attend our GYROKINESIS® classes. All are welcome!

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.

GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® exercise methods moving as an expression of Life, at Raritan Valley Gyrotonic in New Jersey. rvgyrotonic.com

“The nature of things are … to move. 
Life is movement … and an expression of existence is movement. 
When something doesn’t move anymore that’s an expression of death. 
With other words… something stagnating. 
Inside our bodies is the same situation. 
The more it moves the more expression of life. 
The less it moves the more expression is towards death.”

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.

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.”

Gyrokinesis Method here at Raritan Valley Gyrotonic, NJ

METHOD
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.

Gyrokinesis once called yoga for dancers
and more akin to yoga – Gyrokinesis is the foundation of the system and focuses on a specialized breathing technique on top of controlling the body’s movements to increase flexibility, balance and strength.  It utilizes the body in a way that not only builds strength and flexibility, but also invigorate your organs and shape your muscles through its rhythmic movements.

How Gyrotonic Helped this Tennis Player Regain His Body Confidence

After playing competitive tennis at the University of Florida and then getting into cycling, Trevor Taylor had a rough accident that lead him to quit both sports completely. Though he maintained his fitness through weightlifting, he found that his body just wasn’t moving the way he needed it to when he made his way back to the tennis court, causing him even more injuries.

Taylor ended up having a number of surgeries and found himself at a Gyrotonic facility as part of his recovery. After training with the Gyrotonic Expansion System, his body went from stiff and off balance back to the athletic and agile form he once held.

If you need to build your overall flexibility, endurance and strength in a way that actually fits in with your lifestyle, come visit Raritan Valley Gyrotonic in Fanwood, New Jersey.

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.

Gyrokinesis classes are 60-90 minutes long. Each class begins on a chair with a gentle warm up sequence to awaken the senses, and stimulate the nervous system. This is followed by a series of fluid spinal motions, which increase range of motion, and prepare the body to explore more complex movements with agility, and ease. Class continues on the floor with exercises that expand on the spinal motions, gradually adding more complex sequences, incorporating more movements of the hips, shoulders, hands and feet. The floor exercises are followed by a rhythmic standing sequence that incorporates balance, and cardiovascular exercises; then ends with a calming, unwinding sequence designed to prepare the body and mind to reintegrate with the every day world.

The Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods are both highly adaptable, making them accessible to everyone, regardless of age or physical ability. Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis students live in many parts of the world, and come from all walks of life. Accomplished athletes and dancers, college students, baby boomers, senior citizens, and people with disabilities–many have become devoted practicioners of Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis exercise.
