WHAT IS THE GYROTONIC METHOD?
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. The GYROTONIC Method is taught in group or private by Jennifer, a qualified GYROTONIC Trainer.
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. Invented in 1977 and brought in the United States in the 80s, the goal of those exercises are to improve the body’s circulation and tone.
WHAT GYROTONIC AND ITS APPLICATIONS CAN DO FOR YOU?
GYROTONIC uses your body’s natural spherical and spiraling movement patterns to decompress and strengthen your entire spine, the structural foundation for good health.
Under the guidance of Jennifer, your GYROTONIC workout will consist of progressively challenging exercise modules that promote joint mobility. Its multi-directional, circular movement make you less vulnerable to injuries, stress and micro-traumas by increasing your spinal column’s functional ability.
At the practice’s heart are seven spinal movement principles which also stimulate the nervous system, creating a sense of balance in the upright body: – bending forward – extending backward – side-bending the right – side-bending to the left – rotating to the right – rotating to the left – articulated, circular motion.
GYROTONIC principles embrace key elements also found in yoga, dance, swimming and chi-gong. The program uses undulating and rhythmical exercises to work systematically and softly on joints and muscles, building core and lean muscle strength, while nourishing the body with focused breath work. Every exercise is synchronized with a specific type of breathing pattern, which builds breathing endurance. Advanced programs utilize both delicate and vigorous cardiovascular and aerobic rhythms.
