GYROKINESIS® is a flowing, 3-dimensional, circular, spiral, twisting and undulating patterns that characterize the system help to increase the functional capacity of the entire organism in a harmonious way.
The Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods are complementary exercise methods that fall under one umbrella- the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®,
and 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 are now known as the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Methods as a way to heal himself and regain his strength and agility. Gyrotonic exercises are performed on custom-designed Gyrotonic equipment, whereas Gyrokinesis exercises are performed on a mat and chair.
The motion concept includes the most important elements of yoga, dance and tai chi. GYROKINESIS® systematically and gently trains joints and muscles by rhythmic wavelike movements. The spine is considered the central supporting element which gains new flexibility by harmonic wavelike, spiral and circular movements. The corresponding breathing patterns stimulate the nervous system and open up the body meridiens thus releasing waste products and toxic substances that can be taken away by the oxygen-enhanced bloodstream. The flowing movement prevents static held-up positions and thereby superfluous body waste deposit and tensions. The method stimulates energy in a natural way and helps to overcome listlessness and lethargy. The training is done in groups standing up as well as lying down. The complete training program is done without any training machines so the acquired exercises can be partially repeated at home or at work to relax the body from one-sided working positions. People of all ages and different lifestyles benefit by this method, from therapy to high performance training for competitive athletes.
Some of the Benefits of Gyrokinesis and Gyrotonic exercise methods are
Increased functional capacity of the spine, better coordination, overall increased strength, flexibility and Increased mobility of the joints and the use of the fullest capacity in all directions, improves circulation and increases your energy with an overall sense of wellbeing. R

Gyrokinesis classes are 60-90 minutes long. Each class begins on a chair with a gentle warm up sequence to awaken the senses, and stimulate the nervous system. This is followed by a series of fluid spinal motions, which increase range of motion, and prepare the body to explore more complex movements with agility, and ease. Class continues on the floor with exercises that expand on the spinal motions, gradually adding more complex sequences, incorporating more movements of the hips, shoulders, hands and feet. The floor exercises are followed by a rhythmic standing sequence that incorporates balance, and cardiovascular exercises; then ends with a calming, unwinding sequence designed to prepare the body and mind to reintegrate with the every day world.
