GYROTONIC and GYROKINESIS are complementary exercise methods that comprise the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®.  Juliu Horvath, a professional dancer who suffered a series of debilitating injuries during his career, developed the system as a way to heal himself, and regain his strength and agility.  

​GYROTONIC exercises are performed on custom-designed equipment, and
GYROKINESIS generally uses a mat and stool. Both methods involve spiraling, circular movements that echo those found in yoga, tai chi, gymnastics and dance. Each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression.
