When I started my first GyrotonicŪ sessions I was immediately fascinated by the ease and freedom of movement I experienced after while dancing or daily life activities. That’s why I decided to go deeper into the system and started then my certification path to become a trainer.


Gyrotonic training is three-dimensional exercise taught on unique weight and pulley based equipment. It was created by Juliu Horvath, based in the principles of yoga, dance, tai chi, and swimming. Gyrotonic training is a series of circular and fluid exercises that works the entire body through muscular, skeletal, and cardiovascular stimulation.


    * Promotes strong, lean muscles
    * Increases flexibility, coordination, and balance
    * Enhances joint mobility and articulation
    * Frees the body of pain and restrictions
    * Increases circulation of blood, lymphatic fluids, and energy
    * Strengthens the nervous system
    * Compliments/supplements physical therapy and other rehabilitative body work
    * Helps to slow the aging process through mental and physical stimulation and regeneration


Gyrokinesis upholds the same principles of Gyrotonic, but does so without the use of equipment. Like a dance class, flow and rhythm are essential to it. But unlike a yoga class, there is no position holding.


    * Promotes spine and joint articulation and mobilization
    * Increases muscular contraction, extension, flexibility, and coordination
    * Increases circulation of blood, lymphatic fluids, and energy
    * Improves elimination and absorption
    * Increases body awareness 


Class traditionally begins seated on a bench. The class prepares the mind and body for the movement ahead with an awakening of the senses through self-massage and simple breathing patterns.

Bench Work

In the seated position, the class moves through a series of fluid movements that mobilize the spine. These movements include arching, curling, bending and spiraling. The same patterns are expanded upon as the class leaves the benches and proceeds to floor work.

Floor Work

Encompassing a variety of positions including kneeling, seated, and standing, the floor work releases and strengthens the entire body. 

Corresponding breathing patterns stimulate the nervous system, open energy pathways and oxygenate the blood.
