GYROTONIC® was developed by Juliu Horvath, a professional dancer from Romania of Hungarian descent. He suffered a series of debilitating injuries during his dance career and developed this system as a way to heal himself and regain his strength and agility.
The exercises are performed on specialized equipment and are composed of spiraling, circular movements which flow together in rhythmic repetitions, and corresponding breath patterns. Each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression.The exercise sequences are designed to increase the functional capacity of the entirebody in a harmonious way.
GYROTONIC® is appropriate for all fitness levels. The benefits are greater balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility, renewed energy and vitality, and a general sense of calm and well-being.
