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.
