What is it?
GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® was developed by professional dancer Juliu Horvath, who developed the system in response to a series of debilitating injuries suffered during his dance career. It is a unique movement method that enables simultaneous lengthening and strengthening of muscles, stimulates circulation and enhances joint mobility and coordination. GYROTONIC exercise sequences are composed of three dimensional circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breathing patterns.
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. It is unlike conventional linear methods of gym equipment exercise, promoting long lean toned muscles rather than short bulky muscles.
How does it work?
Specially designed GYROTONIC equipment uses weights, pulleys and wheels to create a wide range of spiralling and undulating movement which articulates and mobilises the joints while strengthening the body's core musculature. Particular attention is paid to increasing flexibility in the spine, releasing tension in the upper body and improving co-ordination through movement. The hand crafted equipment allows total freedom of movement and can be adjusted to suit any body weight and level of strength. The even and constant resistance in the handle unit and pulleys completely eliminates any jarring or tension at the ends of the movements unlike many conventional resistance machines.
What should you expect?
Wear loose, comfortable clothing and socks. Sessions are tailor made for each individual’s unique needs, a slower rehabilitative session or a more invigorated aerobic work out. All sessions are one to one. They are accessible to all age groups and physical abilities.

"My weekly GYROTONIC sessions with Maria have become a wonderful source of relaxation and renewal. After a stressful working day the training enables me to reconnect with my body and to calm my mind. As a result of continuous practice my body awareness has increased, my posture and alignment in daily life has improved and now I rarely suffer from back pain. I would highly recommend Gyrotonic exercise with Maria to anyone."
