GYROTONIC® exercise...

your source of infinite possibilities

“The ultimate aim is to be at home in one’s body, experience greater freedom of movement, to feel unrestricted and uninhibited, to be free from pain, to be at one with the nature of oneself, and to experience exercise as a creative and delightful experience.” 

– Juliu Horvath

What is GYROTONIC® exercise?

Can GYROTONIC® exercise be practiced by anyone?

Juliu Horvath. Founder of the GYROTONIC® Method.

The word GYROTONIC® comes from the words "gyro" (meaning spiral or circle) and "tonic" (meaning to tone or invigorate). GYROTONIC® exercise is a Movement Art, like Yoga and Tai Chi. As such, it deepens the connection with your vital energy (Chi, Ki, Prana or Mana) and awakens the organic and intuitive wisdom of your body. 

"I turn the handles and feel the motion flow through my neck, spine and joints in a circular undulating pattern. Arching and curling, twisting and turning, I feel my movements on the
GYROTONIC Tower slowly unwinding the day's tension. Breathing deeply, I feel my mind calming, in rhythm with the peaceful wave of this dynamic yet tranquil method of exercise."

 ~ Conscious Dancer Magazine, Spring 2010

Core Benefits:

Learn how GYROTONIC® exercise will Benefit You!

GYROTONIC® exercise is performed on unique and beautiful hand-crafted wooden equipment which offers both support and the resistance of water. Exercising on the equipment provides similar benefits as yoga and swimming (producing long lean strong muscles and increased flexibility). Exercises include unique arching, spiraling, curling, and undulating movements (combined with breath, rhythm and flow) with counter balanced weights (yet without any strain to the body). The levers, pulleys and handles provide continuous resistance, developing muscles that are generally ignored in standard exercise approaches, while allowing your body to move in ways no other exercise system does.

Our beautiful Studio Sanctuary has been thoughtfully designed to create an oasis of serenity, peace and inner focus amidst your busy life. A place where you can arch and spiral and spend an hour focusing on you! Envision the infinite possibilities.

GYROTONIC® exercise is an invitation to move, breathe and expand into your own true wholeness. The system calms yet invigorates your mind, body and spirit so that you are experiencing exercise that feels uplifting, freeing and organic. In other words, you are experiencing....The Art of Exercising and Beyond ®.
