A GYROKINESIS® class is taught in a small group setting. Students are directed through a series of spinal motions that mobilize the spine through arching, curling, twisting, and spiraling movements. Each class contains over 100 specific movements designed to release the joints of the spine, arms, and legs. Holding brief postures designed to create a fluid connection between poses creates an invigorating and toning flow. GYROKINESIS® movements are performed sitting on a stool, laying on a mat, and standing. Incorporating the flowing principles of yoga, dance, swimming, and tai chi, GYROKINESIS® is described as “yoga in motion.”
By moving joints through a full range of rhythmic and flowing motions in relation to the breath, spine and joint mobility can increase and blood and lymphatic circulation can regulate. Through practice, body awareness and coordination will improve, the body will become revitalized, and tension softens. Besides the physiological benefits, GYROKINESIS® is fun and feels great!
The Gyrotonic Expansion System® is a holistic exercise method that fuses basic movement principles of Kundalini yoga, Tai Chi & Qi Gong, Physical Therapy, swimming, and dance. Spiraling and circular movements flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions with corresponding breath, providing strength training without impact or strain on the joints. Developed by a former professional ballet dancer, Juliu Horvath, who was inspired to create a new method of movement that would heal the body and repair injuries.The flexibility of the Gyrotonic equipment makes it comfortable for all body types and skill levels. The system is highly adaptable to any individual regardless of physical limitations. It is designed to meet the needs of people of all ages and abilities. If you are looking to reconnect with your body in a fun, meaningful, effective and intelligent way, Gyrotonic may be the perfect fit for you!
Gyrotonic simultaneously stretches and strengthens muscles, improves posture, releases tension, increases flexibility, and develops coordination and balance. This method puts no stress on joints, revitalizes energy, promotes strong, lean muscles, enhances joint mobility and articulation, strengthens the nervous system, helps to slow the aging process through mental and physical stimulation and regeneration, and creates a general sense of calm and well-being.

Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by German-born Joseph Pilates. It is especially practiced in the United States where Pilates lived, developed, and taught his method and the United Kingdom, where he lived and taught early stages of his method.
Pilates called his method “contrology” from “control” and Greek -λογία, -logia.
Pilates is an exercise system that strengthens the entire body with special focus on toning the core muscles. Training the deep muscles of the abdomen and back to support the spine allows greater ease of movement in all daily activities.

It all started in London in 1959 when a former ballerina, by the name of Lotte Berk, suffered a back injury. With the help of an Osteopath, she combined her knowledge of ballet barre training with rehabilitative therapy, and The Lotte Berk Method of exercise was born. In 1971, the method was introduced to the US by one of Berk’s students, Lydia Bach. This method of exercise eventually came to be known as The Bar Method.
Barre is a workout routine that combines elements of ballet, pilates, and yoga. By merging these three workout routines, barre classes are both efficient and effective.
