An innovative approach to whole body fitness, spinal health/flexibility, and core strengthening developed by Hungarian-born Juliu Horvath. Drawing from his background in dance, swimming, yoga, and eastern medicine, Juliu Horvath created circular and spiraling movement patterns that stretch and strengthen while stimulating every major system of the body. These organic movement exercises are now being taught around the world by certified instructors on a unique apparatus called the GYROTONIC® Expansion System. Like Pilates, GYROTONIC® strengthens the core of the body. This, in addition to increasing flexibility and coordination helps prevent injuries and increase joint health and stability.
