GYROTONIC® is a movement method utilizing innovative equipment in which the breath guides the body through circular and flowing movements to stimulate the nervous system, open the joints and improve circulation. Invented by Juliu Horvath in the 1980’s to aid in the recovery of an injury, the system is aimed at having people “feel more at home in their body”. Simultaneously improving strength and flexibility, this mobilization of the body is beneficial for those seeking pain reduction with a gentle, soft approach, or for those searching for new energy and athleticism as aid to injury prevention. The movements can be practiced with various intentions whether slow and deep or dynamic and expansive, every body can benefit from this system.
