Gyrotonic Expansion Sysytem and Gyrokinesis
Both Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions with corresponding breath. 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 Gyrotonic Expansion System is a holistic approach to movement that is designed to meet the needs of people of all ages and abilities. It uses unconventional looking, specialized apparatus to work major muscles groups, both independently and with integrated movements, avoiding impact on the joints. Your Forever Fit personal trainer will guide you through a series of gentle movements to improve strength and range of motion. Gyrotonic is particularly useful for healing and helping the body rehabilitate through normal movement patterns.
Gyrokinesis uses a mat and stool in exercise sequences that expand on spiral motions, incorporating balance and cardiovascular exercises. The method then ends with a calming, unwinding sequence designed to prepare the body and mind to reintegrate with the everyday world.
