Gyrotonic classes are adapted to fit anyone’s ability from those recovering from injury or living with a disability to elite athletes. Gyrotonic principles embrace key elements also found in Tango, dance, yoga, dance and martial arts. Gyrotonic method create a powerful three-dimensional exercise system that promotes strength, flexibility and stability by encouraging oppositional moment and spirals found within the body. The idea of spiralling is one of the core elements to Gyrotonic exercise; it allows for the limbs to open and create more space in our joints. The practice lengthens and strengthens the ligaments and tendons while providing cardio and weight training, allowing the body to feel strong yet supple at all times. It consists in modules of exercises based upon the concept of multi directional and spherical movement by using a unique pulley and weights system that enable complete freedom of movement with a three-dimensional approach. Gyrotonic exercise has an emphasis on rhythm, breath, and flowing movement, all done in naturally, gently way with no tension. This allows a postural re-education both preventive and rehabilitating, offering to alleviate, prevent and correct different body trouble, among them: Back pain, headaches, sciatica, hernia, scoliosis, stress, stiffness.
The body is naturally designed to work as one harmonious system, to follow arcing and spiraling paths of motion and to transition from one movement to the next smoothly and efficiently The specialized line of Gyrotonic equipment supports these natural movement patterns. Sophisticated adjustments allow Gyrotonic Trainers to adapt the equipment to the ideal setting for each person’s unique physique, adapting for things such as height, arm and leg length, natural range of motion and physical ability.
