“The ultimate aim is to be at home in one’s body, to be at one with the nature of oneself, and to experience exercise as a creative and delightful experience. – Juliu Horvath
Experience a new dimension of movement. Gyrotonic exercises will enhance your life whether you are a mom, athlete, practice Pilates, Yoga, Barre or if you are trying movement for the very first time. It is a playful system that feels great, will deepen your body awareness and expand your mind.
Some of the many benefits of Gyrotonic exercises include increased strength and flexibility, renewed energy and vitality and a general sense of calm and well being.
To begin your Gyrotonic experience at Pilates South Austin we highly recommend an Initial Gyrotonic Session as the best way to introduce you to the amazing benefits of the Gyrotonic method.
In a Privates Gyrotonic session, you experience a 55-minute session tailored to your body’s level and desired focus. A private allows a unique whole body experience of discovery and awareness, while strengthening, toning & increasing flexibility.
Juliu Horvath created Gyrotonic equipment and exercises after many years of intense study and self-exploration. This unique system incorporates movement principles from yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai chi.
Gyrotonic methodology allows users to stretch and strengthen muscles, while simultaneously stimulating and strengthening connective tissues in and around the joints of the body. These exercises are synchronized with corresponding breathing patterns, thus enhancing aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation and promoting neuro-muscular rejuvenation.
Gyrotonic exercises offer complete freedom of movement. Exercises are performed on the Professional Pulley Tower, and the system is fully adjustable and can meet the needs of many people with varying body types and levels of strength. The even and constant resistance in the handle unit and pulley tower, (through the triple reduction in the pulleys), completely eliminates the jarring that takes place at the beginning and end of exercises performed on conventional exercise equipment, when many injuries occur. The circular, spiraling and undulating movements that characterize the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® help to increase the functional capacity of the spine, contributing to a spherical and three-dimensional awareness, resulting in increased equilibrium.
