The GYROTONIC® system was developed by Juliu Horvath, an ethnic Hungarian and professional dancer from Romania. Horvath suffered a series of debilitating injuries during his dance career and began developing what are now known as the  GYROTONIC® and Gyrokinesis Methods as a way to heal himself and regain his strength and agility.

The GYROTONIC® method is a movement modality that contains similar elements to those found in yoga, but it is not derived from yoga. It links movement with breath, working to increase the natural flexibility of the spine, while simultaneously strengthening and stretching the musculature.

What makes it different from yoga is that it is less linear and more three dimensional, with a greater emphasis on spiralling and twisting.

Our GYROTONIC® rehabilitation exercises are performed on custom-designed equipment and GYROKINESIS® exercises performed on a mat and chair. Both sequences are composed of spiralling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breathing patterns.

Each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, agility, strength and flexibility.

At The College Practice we have a dedicated GYROTONIC® movement Rehabilitation Studio.
