"I want music in my body and poetry in my body, and I want to be skillful without struggle; it has to come without struggle" - Juliu Horvath, GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® founder

GYROTONIC® is a non-impact, weight-bearing exercise program for all ages. GYROTONIC® methodology stimulates all of the biological systems in the body. It opens and lubricates joints, increases circulation of blood and other fluids throughout the body, strengthens muscles, relieves stress and promotes an overall sense of well-being. Therefore, GYROTONIC® is the ideal therapy for such ailments as arthritis and joint pain, osteoporosis, tendonitis, sleep apnea, insomnia, spinal problems, foot and hand injuries, neck pain, shoulder injuries, lower back pain and more. In fact, GYROTONIC® may help reduce or entirely eliminate the need for pain relieving drugs.

Since most injuries occur in the joints, you might wonder why exercise systems often only concentrate on two sides of the joint. With GYROTONIC® movement you will focus on every aspect of the joints making them flexible, resilient, moist and capable of easily supporting and responding to whatever activity or impact life offers. Since joint stiffness is one of the determining factors of aging, this becomes just one of the many ways this system helps to arrest the aging process.

Most exercise systems move in a linear way that essentially compresses energy back into the body causing congestion and stagnation. Linear movement must eventually give out, whereas circular movement, the base of GYROTONIC® ,can be recycled endlessly, creating a more consistent and fluid flow of energy that aids in nurturing and strengthening all the systems of the body.

Sculpting the body, losing weight, developing overall strength and flexibility, recovering from an injury, improving the immune system, enhancing coordination and gaining stamina are just some of the many reasons we all exercise. Yet, most types of exercise can only really address one or two of these goals, ignoring the interdependent nature of the body's inner workings. Juliu Horvath has given us an exercise system that can do it all by working the body in an integrated manner that ultimately increases the functional capacity of the entire organism in a harmonious way.

In line with more traditional types of yoga techniques, Juliu Horvath's aim is to bring the body, mind and soul into union. This ancient spiritual approach towards overall health has been focused into the emergence of an exercise system that has been created to answer the growing needs of a faster paced, dynamic culture. It is modern day yoga for the modern day individual.

When you are in the throes of laughter or exhilaration, or experiencing a state of tranquility or satisfaction, pain and disease begin to dissolve and you enter a state of overall healing. The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is uniquely accessible to any individual regardless of physical limitation or need. This method can take you from where you are to where you want to go.

Who can do this? You can! And you can do this in an enjoyable, gratifying manner that will help to keep you consistent in satisfying your health goals.

The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® essentially moves you through these different states of consciousness so that you are experiencing an exercise system that feels more like recreation than obligation.

You will see that the more you incorporate this exercise system into your life, the more your life will be filled with feelings of joy, peace and general health. Consequently, rather than pushing yourself to include exercise as part of your daily regiment, you will find yourself running to your GYROTONIC® session or GYROKINESIS® class in order to recreate and prolong this wonderful state of being. You will be immersed in the Art of Exercising and Beyond®.
