About the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®

The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is a cutting-edge movement system that addresses the entire body, incorporating principles of yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai-chi.

Exercises are circular and three-dimensional, unlike other movement systems which tend to be linear and isolated. Each movement flows into the next, allowing joints to move naturally without any jarring or compression.

The movement system is made up of two separate, but complementary methods: the Gyrotonic® method and the Gyrokinesis® method.

The Gyrotonic® Method

The GYROTONIC® method is an original and unique movement method that addresses the entire person, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and improving strength, and movement efficiency. GYROTONIC® exercises are performed on machines, revolutionary in their design to function as an extension of your body.

The GYROTONIC® Equipment

The innovative line of GYROTONIC® equipment includes the Pulley Tower, the Jumping Stretching Board, the Archway, the Leg Extension Unit, and the GYROTONER®. Each unit of specialized equipment has its own unique features and functions, providing an extensive range of exercise options.

The Gyrokinesis® Method

GYROKINESIS® exercises utilize similar movements but are performed on a stool and mat. The movement method 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.
Both methods are great ways to gain functional movement through private, semi-private, and group sessions. The sessions are led by experienced, licensed trainers and can meet the needs of any age group or ability, from the elite athlete to elderly clients.
