The orbital movements of the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®, designed by Juliu Horvath, draw from the foundations of swimming, yoga, qigong and dance. Through learning these unique GYROTONIC® techniques, we find optimum mobility, flexibility and strength in the whole body which is grounded in ease and fluidity.

The body is fully integrated into a kinetic sense that creates space in all the joints of the body. The movements are versatile, continuous and rhythmical, which stimulates our body’s circulation, shift blockages that may be energetic in nature, and stimulate our fascial tissue in a dynamic way.

GYROTONIC® movements access deep articulations of the spine (which is the housing of the nervous system).  This deep work helps us feel an increased awareness and vitality as well as promoting a healthy central nervous system.

Most importantly, in this system of awareness, we move with breath, which helps us restore our bodies to it's natural sense of balance. There are endless benefits to this system and it is always tailored to the individual.

In addition to a general wellness practice, this practice can offer assistance to :

  • clients rehabilitating injuries

  • runners, bikers, musicians, professional athletes, dancers and performers who need cross-training

  • clients with painful movement patterns

  • clients with movement limitations like prosthetics, or chronic diseases or impairments.
