Gyrotonic Expansion System
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is composed of the GYROTONIC and GYROKINESIS exercise methods. Juliu Hovarth, creator of the system, discovered the method during many years of study while trying to heal serious disc injuries that came about from his career as a dancer. Over 30 years later, GYROTONIC and GYROKINESIS movement is recommended by any physical therapist that is familiar with the modality. Both these systems comprise of circular and spiralling movements of the body and can be performed by anyone, regardless of age or state of health.
By training the body to work in a circular, spiralling motion, the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® exercises the musculo-skeletal structure as well as the nervous system by mobilizing and articulating the joints. This simultaneously stretches and strengthens the body, increasing range of motion, correcting posture and developing coordination and equilibrium.
The movements are more circular in dimension than exercises in the Pilates Method. This more 3-dimensional approach to articulating the joints helps them to open up easily and fluidly, while strengthening the body in an open range of motion. The internal sensation of doing GYROTONIC® exercise is that of dancing, swimming, massaging, yawning, spiralling and working against resistance in unfamiliar states of balance.
GYROTONIC® exercise is ideal for clients at any level who want more flexibility in their spine, hips and shoulders, or who want more overall strength and flexibility for the whole body. It is also extremely therapeutic for those dealing with spinal pathologies. Some other benefits that may be gained by practicing the methods are: increased circulation; cardiovascular stimulation; increased mobility of the joints; stimulation, and strengthening of the nervous system; mobilization of the spine; improved sense perception; greater balance, and flow of energy; and improved coordination.
While GYROKINESIS® exercises can be taught in a group format using a stool and a mat, GYROTONIC® movement is taught privately or as a semi-private, using a central apparatus called the Pulley Tower unit, and four other main pieces of specialized equipment.
