Origins and description of Gyrotonica  

Gyrotonica or more precisely  GYROTONIC® , name given to the discipline by its inventor  Juliu Horvath , with a very specific meaning.

It is a compound name GYRO which indicates the circular movements of the system; and  TONIC which indicates the sound, the vibration, the tone  of our body. So: by circular movements we produce a vibration in the body that generates a sound, our own sound.

According to the Intelligent Movement system , strength is obtained through a conscious and effective use of the body.


 What is Gyrotonica for

Until a few years ago it was practiced only by professional dancers or prescribed in cases of post-operative rehabilitation, but today the Gyrotonic method is quickly establishing itself as a new wellness training . Developed in the Eighties by the former Hungarian dancer Juliu Horvath , the Gyrotonic works thanks to a machine equipped with handles and weights that act as resistance during the exercises. Although it has a lot in common with Pilates, it works on more fluid and circular movements, on the muscles , on the breath to stimulate the nervous system and release any psychophysical blocks .

Thanks to this uninterrupted flow of elliptical movements, synchronized with breathing , this method is recommended in the prenatal period and in post-partum recovery , to get the abdominal area back into shape and recover the elasticity of the paravertebral muscles.


A typical session of  Gyrotonica  

By means of circular and well-calibrated movements, freedom of movement around the joints is restored. It works in depth on the ligaments and muscle attachments , increasing the functional capacity of the entire musculoskeletal system and at the same time, embracing the principles of oriental medicine , the main energy passages of the body , the joints , are reopened .

The end? From circular movements a vibration is produced in the body which is personal, corresponding to the tone of each one.


How do you become and what does a gyrotonic trainer do?


Who can operate in Italy  

The basic training path, to become a first level Trainer , lasts about a year and is divided into 5 successive stages through which the fundamental principles of the methodology are taught and in which students are accompanied throughout the apprenticeship up to the  final certification . . The method is very well organized and reflects Horvath’s pedagogy: through simplicity, we can help to understand very complex things; the movement of the human body, for example.

In addition to training courses in Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis , training courses for Gyrotonic Expansion System Trainer are also active on the Italian territory.
