The GYROTONIC® Method
The GYROTONIC® method is a complementary exercise method that fall under one umbrella, the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®, an original and unique movement method that enables simultaneous lengthening and strengthening of muscles, stimulates circulation, and enhances joint mobility, and coordination. The method was 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 is now known as the GYROTONIC® Method as a way to heal himself and regain his strength and agility.
GYROTONIC® is an exercise sequence composed of spiraling, circular movements, that 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® method, the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® has grown to include a global community of over 13,000 GYROTONIC® Trainers teaching in 84 countries.
