The Gyrotonic method is a unique movement practice with roots in Yoga, Tai Chi, swimming and dance. Gyrotonic exercise sequences are performed on specialized equipment. They are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions and corresponding breath. With Gyrotonic exercises, each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility.
Regular Gyrotonic practice brings many benefits to all ages and fitness levels. It has been found to lift chronic pain and improve flexibility, range of motion, balance, strength and energy. Gyrotonic classes can be adapted to fit anyone's ability. The Gyrotonic method is practiced by people from all walks of life, including accomplished athletes and dancers, college students, baby boomers, senior citizens and people with disabilities.
