about the system

The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® created by Juliu Horvath, is a movement system based in circular and spherical awareness of the body. More specifically the joints themselves. With specially designed equipment to assist the body in understanding these concepts GYROTONIC® exercises help to create a balance between the muscles, bones, organs and nerves which helps to relieve stagnation and stresses that can build up in our bodies.

GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods constitute the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® . Gyrotonic exercises use equipment specially designed to strengthen and guide the body’s natural motions, while Gyrokinesis requires only a mat and a chair.

GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® was created to serve each unique body, whether recovering from illness or honing peak performance.  Because it draws from dance, each movement flows rhythmically into the next. Because it draws from yoga, each movement incorporates the breath, building the connection between mind, body, and spirit.
