what is gyrotonic?
The Gyrotonic method is a movement modality that is inspired by yoga. It links movement with breath, working to increase the natural flexibility of the spine, whilst simultaneously strengthening and stretching the musculature.
What makes it different from yoga is that it is less linear and more 3 dimensional, with a greater emphasis on spiralling and twisting.
Holistic in nature, Gyrotonic exercises address the body, mind and emotions. The movements promote a tremendous sense of wellbeing, delivering increased energy, greater mind-body awareness, long and lean muscles, improved posture and a strong core.
The Gyrotonic method uses specialised equipment to take the body beyond its limitations; the principle piece of equipment used being the Pulley Tower.
The Gyrotonic method delivers powerful cross training for all, including yogis, dancers and athletes. Plus, because it is low impact, Gyrotonic exercises are also highly beneficial for pre and post-natal women, and those recovering from injuries.
