More about Erika and Dima
Erika Hassan moved to NYC in 1992 because she needed to dance. She began studying ballet with Sara Neece and Jan Miller. Her technique consisted mostly of brute force and desire! Fortunately, in 1993 she met Juliu Horvath (founder of the Gyrotonic Expansion System) and began an intensive investigation into Gyrotonic and dance from the inside out. For five years she trained privately with Juliu and, in exchange, worked in his workshop where he still built the Gyrotonic equipment- staining woods and gluing foam cushions. She continued a career in dance with various choreographers in NYC including Heidi Latsky, Javier Dzul, Jennifer Muller, Maureen Fleming, and Soulskin. Erika spent 4 years in Brazil where she danced in Marcelo Pereira’s Zen Companhia de Danca. She then moved to Japan to study the avant garde dance form- Butoh – on Min Tanaka’s farm. She choreographed and performed in his theater Plan B in Tokyo. Erika is deeply committed to sharing the Gyrotonic Expansion System. She is currently a Master Trainer in both Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis and teaches trainings and workshops around the world.

Dima Fedorov began his physical education as a young boy in St. Petersburg studying gymnastics and acrobatics. He later competed professionally with Julia Kulakova throughout Russia and Europe. He graduated with a Masters in Sports Acrobatic. Dima later took his acrobatic skills to the stage in the Hermitage Theater with choreographer Alexsander Kondratuk. He attended the Lesgaft National State University of Physical Culture, Sports, and Health in St. Petersburg, Russia. In 2003 he was introduced to the Gyrotonic method by the founder’s brother, Paul Horvath. Dima and his colleagues were the first group to bring the Gyrotonic Expansion System to Russia. Over the past 10 years he has deepend his studies in the method with founder Juliu Horvath, Gina Muensterkoetter, Sebastian Plettenberg, and Erika Hassan. Dima is currently a Master Trainer in both Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis.

Get FIT with Gyrotonics!

When thinking about getting in shape, it’ll serve you well to start thinking about the Gyrotonics Expansion System. With Gyrotonics (and Gyrokinesis) exercises you’ll achieve what is often referred to as “body evolution.”  While that description might seem like a daunting task to undertake, Gyrotonics makes it easy. At Raritan Valley Gyrotonics, our knowledgeable trainers will help you quickly get comfortable on the Gyrotonics machinery, making the task of getting in shape and reaching body evolution so much less daunting. While some studios in the NYC do a great job with helping their clients achieve their goals, very few concentrate solely on the Gyrotonic methods. To receive the full experience experience of a truly dedicated Gyrotonics workout you need to stop by Raritan Valley Gyrotonics in Fanwood, NJ.

There are a few things you expect to get out of a great workout, and Gyrotonics delivers on all of those benefits. Like with any physical exercise, continued activity with Gyrotonics generally results in weight loss, gained strength, better flexibility and a better overall understanding and control of your body. With Gyrotonics though, there are some nice additional bonuses that come with Gyrotonic exercises, such as more energy, better sleeping, a more stable emotional state and a healthier appetite. Since the movements involved are all coordinated with breathing, it specifically aids in internal movements that benefit all of the systems in the body, including the internal organs.

People who stick out our classes for even just a week or two begin to experience these physical and emotional perks to working out, and are often more likely to adhere to their fitness routine for a much long and reach their goals much sooner. One of the reasons why Gyrotonics works so well is that you develop a relationship with a personal trainer starting from day one. They’ll hold you accountable and inspire you to push yourself harder, which means you’ll be more likely to experience those great feelings.


Baby Boomers Benefit From Gyrotonic!

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but some of us “old dogs” are finding it almost necessary to at least trick ourselves into getting into a regular exercise routine. Whether you’re starting fresh to kick-start a healthy lifestyle (better late than never right?) or are finding that your body isn’t keeping up with the intense routine you were once used to, Gyrotonics could be your answer to a fun, balanced workout regime your body needs.

Regular physical activity can help prevent and reduce the symptoms of arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, certain types of cancer and a slew of other medical issues. While we do offer classes and encourage people of all ages and athletic abilities to give Gyrotonics a try, there are certain aspects of the exercise methods that are incredibly beneficial to the Baby Boomer generation.

Gyrotonics uses the principles of Intention, Stabilization, Decompression and Coordination to help increase mobility, flexibility and strength – which happen to be a few of the areas the Baby Boomer are apt to focus on. We pair the fundamental fitness elements of the Gyrotonic method with a fun environment so that classes fly by while you get a great work out in. Regular Gyrotonics and Gyrokinesis exercise can help increase the functional capacity of the spine, better your coordination, increase your overall strength, boost your flexibility and help you gain mobility in your joints in all directions.
