What is gyrotonics?

Gyrotonics emphasizes controlled resistance and the development of flexibility and strength.

Developed by Rumanian dancer Juliu Hovarth in the late 1980s, Gyrotonics has been described as "yoga with resistance." Based on components of yoga, ballet, swimming, dance, tai chi and gymnastics, Gyrotonics is a fluid system of exercises performed on a specialized resistance machine to help practitioners stretch, bend, twist, and turn their muscles with minimal effort. Gyrotonics works all major muscle groups interdependently to encourage a complete range of circular motion, full articulation of stabilized joints, and improved balance and coordination. Other benefits include cardiovascular and aerobic stimulation and neuromuscular rejuvenation.
