GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®
THE GYROTONIC® Method and the GYROKINESIS® Method are complementary exercise methods that fall under one umbrella, the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® Method. Both Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions with corresponding breathing patterns.

Gyrotonic Exercise for Scoliosis
Susan is demonstrating a double-armed "tiger paw"🐯 from the GYROTONIC®️ Level 2, Program 2 series. This movement includes a wave-like undulation of the spine (getting the spinal segments to move separately and sequentially) as well as coordinated stabilization of the shoulder girdle. * * * * * I have seen Susan's mobility and awareness in both her GYROKINESIS®️ and GYROTONIC®️ classes increase positively over the past 2 years. *. *. *. *. * The following passage gives you an idea of how had Susan has worked, coming from a childhood diagnosis of scoliosis: "I wore what was called a full Boston brace. Mine was an early style that had a leather corset - later ones were made of plastic. The emphasis in the treatment was on the hardware and not the strengthening of the muscles to support the skeletal structure. By the time I was in my late 30s I had developed a huge swayback bordering on a hump. I have been doing this and Pilates for almost 18 years. The GYROTONIC®️ Method has helped tremendously with making my torso feel more spacious. I used to feel as if my hips and my rib cage were too close or cramped. People complement me on my posture and that is the best part. I had always heard 'stand up straight'. Now it happens naturally."

The GYROTONIC® Method
The GYROTONIC® Method is an original and unique movement method that addresses the entire person by opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and improving strength and movement efficiency. 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. Within the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® there are two distinct methods of practice: the GYROTONIC® Method and the GYROKINESIS® Method. This video is a preview of the GYROTONIC® Method.

The GYROTONIC® Interview Series - Regaining Balance
In 2003, Gloria had just retired from a long career of teaching and coaching university athletics when she fell from her roof, resulting in a spinal cord injury that left her partially paralyzed. After a few GYROTONIC® sessions, muscles in Gloria’s feet that had not functioned for a decade began to fire. As her sessions continued, small, sporadic flickers of contractions slowly evolved into consistent, strong, coordinated muscle functioning. Gradually, her previously atrophied calf muscles began to slowly regain tone and function.
