History of GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS ® Methodologies
Juliu Horvath’s personal struggle with chronic pain and injuries led to the development of the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®. GYROKINESIS® movement principles are a main component of this methodology. It incorporates many key principles from yoga, dance, gymnastics and tai-chi. The fundamentals of GYROTONIC® movement consist of a totally new exercise system, using GYROKINESIS® principles as the basis to exercise the musculature while mobilizing and articulating the joints.
The uniqueness of the System is that it simultaneously stretches and strengthens the body with minimal effort, while increasing range of motion and developing coordination. This methodology systematically and gently works the joints and muscles through rhythmic and undulating exercises. Movement stimulates the body’s internal organs and different corresponding breathing patterns are integrated.
Fluidity is the key. Postures are not held for long periods of time. Instead, postures are smoothly and harmoniously connected through the use of breath, making exercises appear and feel more like a dance than traditional yoga.
