The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM is a revolutionary system of exercise that incorporates key movement principles from yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai-chi. Developed by Juliu Horvath, a former dancer and gymnast, Gyrotonic movement stretches and strengthens muscles while simultaneously stimulating and strengthening the connective tissues in and around the joints. The even and constant resistance of Gyrotonic machines avoids the jarring that frequently causes injury to users of more conventional exercise equipment. The exercises, synchronized with corresponding breathing patterns, provide stimulation to the cardiovascular and nervous systems which can range from gentle to quite challenging depending on the pace and intensity of the workout.
Quoted from the Gyrotonic® website (gyrotonic.com): "The Gyrokinesis Method is a movement method that addresses the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. It is an original and unique method, which coordinates movement, breath and mental focus."
