GYROKINESIS® Group Mat & Stool Class

Newbies welcome! No experience required.

Gyrokinesis exercise is an ever-evolving intelligent movement system designed by Juliu Horvath. This class feels like a combination of swimming, dancing, yoga, and qigong. The energizing exercises happen on low stools and on the mat. Create suppleness, core pelvic strength, and balanced mobility in your body through multiple-joint articulation. Circular and rhythmic movements emphasize beneficial breath power, energetic alignment, and a grounded connection and lead to a sense of well-being after completing the class. Be prepared to spiral, undulate, and expand. Stools are provided.

The freedictionary.com defines “gyro” as a rotating mechanism in the form of a universally mounted spinning wheel that offers resistance to turns in any direction. In a Gyrotonic class, our full bodies, from the external to the deepest internal, become that spinning mechanism. Juliu Horvath, the creator of the system, invented the Gyrotonic Pulley Tower Combination unit and four other main pieces of specialized equipment. 

GYROTONIC® exercises = using special equipment

GYROKINESIS® Class = group workout using a stool and a mat. 

Much like yoga or tai chi, the Gyrotonic method allows a student to enter the movement within their own comfort zone while offering the possibility of moving past blockages. The universal motions offered, such as the spinal waves, can help to awaken the body’s inner intelligence system.

Gyrotonic movements help to create trust that your body already knows what to do to unlock the mysteries of chronic pain or aches.

People who have movement experience in swimming, T’ai Chi, gymnastics, dance, or yoga will find common elements in a Gyrotonic session. Gyrotonic exercises can help people with limited mobility to reach new places of possibility and has shown great success working with professional dancers and athletes. In a class, we focus on breath, coordinating movements, learning sequences, and moving multiple areas of the body at once.

Spira is proud to be a teacher training facility for Gyrotonic movement. See our Courses page for upcoming trainings.
