What is the GYROTONIC® Method?


The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is a revolutionary system of exercise that incorporates key movement principles from yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming, and tai-chi. Movements are performed on specially designed equipment, which is built around the human body and provides total freedom of movement. GYROTONIC® movements stretch and strengthen muscles while simultaneously stimulating and strengthening the connective tissues in and around the joints. The even and constant resistance in the equipment eliminates the jarring found in conventional exercise machines where most injuries tend to occur. The GYROTONIC® method is suitable for all body types and ages. Movements are synchronized with corresponding breathing patterns—providing cardiovascular endurance and calming the nervous system.


The end result? Muscles and connective tissues are strengthened and lengthened without compression of the joints—providing a regenerative and protective effect, particularly in the spinal column.
