The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®
The Art of Exercising and Beyond®
THE GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is a complete movement system, for all levels and ages, and can be applied to a variety of situations, as one needs very little equipment. It incorporates many key principles from yoga, dance, swimming, and Tai Chi. Mobilization of the spine and joints through a series of arching, curling, undulation and spiraling movements, bring muscular strength and flexibility, joint lubrication, a massaging of the internal organs and vitality to the entire body. The corresponding breathing patterns in every movement help to stimulate the nervous system and open up energy pathways. Rhythm, movement, & breath are the key elements of this system accessible for all fitness levels.
GYROKINESIS® is the non equipment branch of the
GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®, and
GYROTONIC®, is the equipment branch.
This class begins seated on a stool utilizing small movements of the spine which are circular or spiral in look and feel. Using breath, rhythm and pulsating movements to gently open the spine and joints, massage internal organs, stretches muscles, nerves, tendons and increases an overall sense of well being. Respiratory strength, a release of tension, detoxification with specific breathing patterns, and profound core body strength are among the benefits of a regular practice. Additionally, it helps to develop and brings a deeper awareness to one’s authentic self.
