The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® Method is a unique, holistic approach to movement.
Some of the benefits of a regular Gyrotonic practice include a healthier, more supple spine, increased range of motion, greater joint stability, improved agility and athletic performance, and a deep internal strength.
The Gyrotonic Method fits the needs of all ages and abilities, from elderly patients recovering from injury, to highly skilled professional athletes.
It is an original and unique movement method that addresses the entire person, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and improving strength, and movement efficiency.
With Gyrotonic exercises, each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility.
The GYROTONIC® Pulley Tower Combination Unit is the most widely used piece of Gyrotonic Equipment. The pulley tower provides smooth, even support and resistance via a unique, weighted pulley system. The adjustable bench and rotating handle unit can be customized to fit the individual proportions, and movement capacities of each user. The design of the equipment supports the full, and natural range of motion of the joints, allowing for three-dimensional, functional movement, and eliminating the sharp starts and stops where most injury occurs.
A broad range of exercise sequences and modification options make the Jumping-Stretching Board accessible to people of all levels of strength and flexibility. Due to its versatility, and popularity with clients, this is often the first piece of specialized equipment added to a Gyrotonic studio.
Jumping-Stretching Board exercise sequences are composed of full body, functional exercises, performed in a variety of body positions- kneeling, standing, lying and sitting. A diverse range of standing exercises improve flexibility, coordination, and functional strength.
The ergonomic, gliding platform allows users to experience running, and jumping in a low impact, horizontal plane, with the spine and pelvis fully supported, making it ideal for post injury exercise.
The Archway® is considered by many to be the most physically demanding piece of specialized equipment. The vertical, tiered ladder design of the Archway accommodates advanced strength and stability sequences by allowing users to perform exercises in various relationships to gravity - vertical, horizontal, diagonal, and inverted. The included propeller accessory, and adjustable arms provide standing and rotation exercises for people of various abilities - beginners to advanced. The Archway is a great addition to any studio, and is especially popular with dancers, among other athletes.
