Gyrokinesis®

Gentle working of joints and muscles through rhythmic and undulating exercises.

Gyrokinesis excercises were developed in the 80‘s by Juliu Horvath and are the core of Horvath’s metodology. It incorporates many key principles from yoga, dance, gymnastics and tai-chi.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Gyrokinesis metodology works the entire body through seven natural elements of spinal movement: forward, backwards, left side, right side, left twist, right twist, and circular.

This metodology systematically and gently works the joints and muscles through rhythmical and undulating exercises. The different corresponding breathing patterns are integrated. That stimulates the body’s internal organs and the nervous system, which open up the energy pathways and helps the body to release waste products and toxins that will be carried away through the oxygenated blood.

The Horvath metodology invigorates and re-educates the body to move with fluidity, relaxation and power.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

The beginner Gyrokinesis classes start with self-massage and simple breathing patterns to awaken the body. The next focus is on the spine and pelvis. Seated on low stools , the exercises are designed to mobilize the spine and all the joints of the body through a series of arching, curling, bending, twisting, stretching and spiraling movements.

These same movement patterns are expanded to release the hip, knee, hamstring, quadriceps, and so on, in all possible directions: front, back, twisting and turning. The more advanced classes add endurance training to bodies prepared for more strenious activities. The classes encompass not only sitting, but also laying, and standing positions.
