Many articles have discussed the rapid-growing trend and benefits of the Gyrotonic® Method. It was developed in the 1970s by Romanian dancer Juliu Horvath, after suffering from debilitating injuries. This workout challenges the body to move three-dimensionally as opposed to the more traditional linear and two-dimensional movements—think about how a gyroscope moves. This training moves the body and joints in big circles to help lengthen, strengthen, and heal. These are necessities for dancers especially if the desire is to have a healthy and satisfying career with longevity. The Gyrotonic Method could be the balance missing in your training.

Yes, there is Gyrotonic® equipment that is used and has been developed around the human body with the emphasis placed on total and complete freedom of movement. All the equipment was designed to enhance the process of building coordination, strength, and flexibility. Gyrotonic® exercises offer the same healthy resistance provided by water, but unlike exercises that are performed under water—where it is difficult to regulate an exact movement pattern and correct position—exercises performed on various Gyrotonic® equipment are done with the ability to adjust the range of motion and control of positioning.
The Gyrotonic® Method was developed in the 1970s by Romanian dancer Juliu Horvath, after suffering from debilitating injuries.

This type of training moves the body and joints in big circles to help lengthen, strengthen, and heal. Lengthening, strengthening, stability, flexibility, and balance are necessities for dancers and athletes, especially if the desire is to have a healthy and satisfying career with longevity. Building a solid foundation—by using correct muscle groups to execute various plays, steps, and choreography—can help prevent dance/sports-related injuries. Gyrotonic® could be the balance missing in your training.
Gyrotonic can improve:
• Flexibility and extensions
• Coordination and stamina
• Strength and connection
• Balance and alignment
The basics of the Gyrotonic® technique is comprised of a completely new workout system—developed by Juliu Horvath—and uses the Gyrokinesis® method as the foundation to exercise the musculature while mobilizing and articulating the joints. The Gyrotonic® approach is a one-of-a-kind workout and equipment system that blends movement concepts from yoga, dancing, gymnastics, swimming, and tai chi. This unique method is designed to stretch and develop muscles along with activating and strengthening connective tissues in and around the body's joints. All of this is simultaneously done while expanding range of motion and building coordination. Exercises that are linked with breathing patterns can improve aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation as well as promote neuromuscular regeneration. Gyrotonic can improve:
• Shoulder dysfunction
• Tightness and/or in hips
• Knee injuries
• Ankle injuries
• Stroke recovery
For over 10 years, I have taught ballet classes and the Gyrotonic® Method at various schools and studios. I have had the pleasure to work with people of various ages and abilities. The outcomes continue to surprise me. My experience is both personal and theoretical. I have been classically trained in ballet and understand what it takes to improve one single movement as well as recover from an injury. Gyrotonic® is a quick, easy, and long-lasting way to improve and heal a dysfunctional movement. When my body first felt the results of Gyrotonic®, I was astonished. The surprising outcome and sensation I had from just one session inspired me to become certified in order to assist myself and others. I care, I love, and I am good at what I do. I know first-hand what it takes to train at an elite level, what it takes to remain at that level, and most importantly my approach is to approach everything with integrity. Let’s create a new space of movement, growth, and health together.
Movement is the foundation of life, vitality, and brightness. We are alive because of movement. We heal, we change, and we repair our bodies through movement. Have you noticed that as we age, we become less vital, less energetic? Ever wonder why? It is because we no longer move as much as we did when we were younger—sedentary work, lack of time, pain and injuries, unenthusiastic about exercising, etc.
I am a classically-trained, professional dancer. I have been through a lot of rigorous physical training, which was very extreme. Every single day I had to wake up and push myself past my own limits—minimum of six hours of practice daily with or without injuries—in order to accomplish my career as a ballet dancer. It was a journey with a beautiful outcome.
We live in a different time where things have become faster but also body-friendly. To push our bodies to the limits (in a healthy way) isn’t quite as brutal anymore. We can achieve what we want easier and sometimes faster with the Gyrotonic® and Gyrokinesis® Methods. These methods not only help improve our natural range of motion but help undo previous damage, prevent future damage, and enable an expansion of increased physical ability. It was through my multiple injuries that I discovered Gyrotonic®, and the results were unexpectedly delightful. This method was able to repair my body to the point it was at before my injuries and gave me physical strength and stability I had not experienced even when I was younger.
There are many dimensions to discover within our own physical ability. To break the boundaries of movement-limitation, you must have determination, drive, and time to accomplish your body’s best performance. We all have days where we do not feel like being bothered. It will be discipline that propels us forward when the desire fades.
If your aspiration is to take your body to the next level—in a pleasant, healthy way with long lasting results—I am here for you. I am here to guide you through a beautiful and enjoyable experience where you will explore, improve, and exceed your expectations about your body’s movement.
