Begin the journey to increase the functional capacity of the spine, and obtain extraordinary flexibility and essential strength, rejuvenation, and increased vitality and vigor. Regardless of your age or fitness level. The Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis method is progressive so we can start where you are at. If you have not exercised for a long time or have never really been involved in a exercise routine the Gyrotonic method is a gentle way to begin to move again, and as you get stronger the exercises increase in intensity and complexity. Full body movements, circular spirals and curves always involving motion at the spine very functional movements that teach the body to move in harmony with everyday activity.
Gyrotonic exercises are performed on custom-designed Gyrotonic equipment, whereas Gyrokinesis exercises are performed on a mat and chair. Both methods are complementary movement methods that fall under one umbrella- the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM.
“The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® Method is a unique, holistic approach to movement. Some of the benefits of a regular Gyrotonic practice include a healthier, more supple spine, increased range of motion, greater joint stability, improved agility and athletic performance, and a deep internal strength. Experienced Gyrotonic trainers offer personalized sessions that are adapted to fit the needs of all ages, and abilities, from elderly patients recovering from injury, to highly skilled professional athletes”- Gyrotonic website
