Developed by Juliu Horvath, the Gyrokinesis method is a unique bodywork practice that connects body, mind and spirit in a joyful and playful physical practice. The creation of Horvath’s method was influenced a by a variety of movement studies including gymnastics, dance, yoga, meditation, tai-chi along with a series of injuries that curtailed his performance career. The method works the entire body using spinal articulations and undulating rhythms integrated with specific breathing patterns.
Juliu Horvath originally developed the Gyrotonic Expansion System® to help rehabilitate, strengthen and lengthen injured dancers. However, many people in the general public are finding this innovative bodywork a helpful approach for mindful fitness. While both methods share the same foundational principles, the gyrotonic method incorporates the use of specialized equipment to support and enhance results. Both methods work for anyone wishing to gain strength, coordination, or flexibility, using a mindful approach.
