What is the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®?

Gyrotonic System in use.

Do you have back pain or shoulder problems? Have you had knee or hip surgery and still have pain or weakness in the muscles or in the joint? Are you suffering from stiffness in your musculature or immobility of the joints and spine? Do you simply want to work out and build up your strength and stamina, increase your flexibility and improve your coordination? Or would you like to feel more alive, more free, more at home and at peace in your body, no matter your size, shape, age or condition?

Gyrotonic exercises are a totally new system of movement developed by the renowned Romanian fitness expert, Juliu Horvath, in the early 1980’s. Incorporating the principles found in yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai-chi, Horvath developed a unique system of equipment and exercises to work the body from the inside out. The exercises are based on an expanding series of fluid circular and spiral movements, with adjustable resistance and incorporating a synchronized breathing pattern, all resulting in working the musculature, cardiovascular and neurologic systems simultaneously
