The Gyrotonic method is an original, and unique movement practice which has roots in Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates, Gymnastics and Dance. Gyrotonic exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breath.
With Gyrotonic exercises, 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, efficiency, strength and flexibility.
The body is designed to work as one harmonious system to follow arcing and spiraling paths of motion, and to transition from one movement to the next smoothly, and efficiently. Gyrotonic method creator, Juliu Horvath , designed a specialized line of equipment around these natural movement patterns of the human body. Because Gyrotonic equipment is highly adjustable, it can be customized to fit each persons unique physique, and ability, adapting for things such as height, arm and leg length and physical ability.
Gyrotonic classes can be adapted to fit anyone's ability. People from all walks of life, including ccomplished athletes and dancers, college students, baby boomers, senior citizens, and people with disabilities practice the Gyrotonic method. Braam has studied and practiced the Therapeutic Applications of Gyrotonic around the world and has experienced amazing results with people suffering with weakness, stiffness, postural problems, pain, post surgical conditions to name a few.
