The Art of Exercising and Beyond
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is an exercise modality unlike most conventional exercise machines where linear or isolated movements are performed; the GYROTONIC® Method movements emphasize multiple joint articulations without compression in circular motions. The GYROTONIC® method is an original and unique movement practice that has roots in Yoga, Tai Chi, and dance. GYROTONIC® exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions with 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. Special attention is paid to increased mobility and stability of the spine, resulting in a superior and well-proportioned body that is less prone to injury. This work is supported by carefully designed and handcrafted machinery.
