What is Gyrokinesis Methodology?
The GYROKINESIS ® method is a modern and gentle form of yoga that was created by Juliu Horvath to increase spinal mobility in all directions with emphasis on circular and wavelike motions of the body.
GYROKINESIS ® exercises allow one to work on the entire body through seven natural elements of spinal movement: forward, backward, left side, right side, left twist, right twist and circular, as well as all other joint articulation. This approach systematically and gently works the joints and muscles through rhythmic and undulating movements. These movements stimulate the body’s internal organs while different corresponding breathing patterns are integrated along with the movements.
Fluidity is the key. Postures are not held for long periods of time. Instead, postures are smoothly and harmoniously connected through the use of breath, making exercises appear and feel more like dancing or swimming than like traditional yoga.
Those who practice GYROKINESIS ® exercises tend to be more relaxed in their daily lives and can move with increased flexibility and ease.
