Golfers are raving about the benefits to their swing. Professional dancers are seeing changes in their level of performance. The injured and elderly are finding a safe way to move and ease pain. Professional athletes have a new edge over their competition. Celebrities like Tiger Woods, Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow are fans. So what is this new form of exercise that is changing the way we move?
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM ® helps to increase your range of motion, strength and flexibility and create articulation of the joints.
The exercises are performed on a pulley tower system which allows you to move freely without restriction. You will feel supported by the equipment like a swimming pool - free to change speeds or from one exercise to the next with out jarring. This support system also helps the bigger, stronger muscles to ease to allow the weaker muscles an opportunity to strenghten giving your body more balance and become less prone to injury.
Gyrotonic movements are more 3-dimensional than your average exercise routine. Allow your body to move more freely rather than just linearly while finding a rhythm and circularity as natural as the tides of ocean, the spiral of baseball swing, the gait of your run or the pattern of your breath.
This system gives your body a chance to move without gripping in the muscles. You will find a way for the tension and stress to release from your body and begin to ease. Instead the energy from your body will flow free and through your workout you begin to feel a "buzzing" and warmth, similar to the sensation your feel with a full-body yawn.
You will leave your session feeling not "worn-out" but invigorated and refreshed. You will feel a little taller and better aligned - prepared for the rest of your day!

Born in Hungary, raised in Romania, Juliu Horvath's personal study in movement led him to discover and develop GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® principles. A former gymnast and professional dancer, an injury forced Horvath to stop dancing and led him to find ways of self-healing. After years of study he not only repaired himself, but created a system for people of all ages and abilities.
