The GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods are complementary exercise methods designed to work the entire body holistically. Both methods allow the body to move the way it was designed, in natural spiraling and circular pathways. Through a sequence of rhythmic and fluid exercises, the body is able to relax, re-energize, and re-pattern itself in a way that encourages supple and dynamic strength. Attention is placed on the decompression of the spine and joints. Specific breath patterns encourage focus, making each session or class uniquely powerful.
