GYROTONIC ®

GYROTONIC ® is a unique form of exercise incorporating the principles of yoga, dance, swimming, gymnastics and tai-chi to exercise the musculature while mobilizing and articulating the joints.

Derived from the word ‘gyro’, meaning to spiral or circle, Gyrotonic ® movements are spiral in nature rather than linear and often described as a kind of 3-dimentional Pilates. The uniqueness of the discipline is that it simultaneously stretches and strengthens with minimal effort, increasing the range of motion in order to develop co-ordination and re-establish balance.

GYROTONIC ® uses specially designed equipment built around the shape of the human body. Circular and spiraling movements are accompanied by specific breathing patterns meaning that the spine and internal organs are oxygenated and stimulated, leading to improved tone and increased vitality (hence the name, Gyro – ‘tonic’).

Whilst GYROTONIC ® is hugely beneficial and a complete system on its own, Kinesis has created a studio environment in which individuals can benefit from a combined approach of a variety of different disciplines, resulting in a more efficient and results driven work out.

The Benefits of Gyrotonic ® Include: 

  • Articulates the spine in all directions
  • Puts no stress on joints – relieves joint pain and restrictions
  • Creates a balanced support system for the skeleton
  • Releases tension in the body
  • Improves circulation
  • Reconditions the nervous system by developing breath-movement coordination revitalizes flow of energy
  • Prevents injuries
  • Rehabilitates
