This class is a unique system of three-dimensional movements, using gentle repetitive circling,
spiraling and undulating exercises in a set rhythm. It can be taught in a group class or
privately. This class is divided in sections and when they are performed together it brings your
body into full balance.
First section: The spinal-motion series. Participants arch, curl, twist, side-shift and undulate
the spine while sitting on the Gyrokinesis� stool. Each movement has it's own specific
Second section: The connecting series. This combination is performed on the floor. Various
exercises link the upper and lower anatomy through the body's Seed Center. The movements
are more intense, and the breathing is more specific and rhythmic.
Third section: The hip and knee mobilization series. Also done on the floor, this sequence
encourages rotation and articulation of the knee and hip joints.
Fourth section: The back-strengthening series. It is a group of arching movements, executed
with the front of the pelvis on the floor, involves lifting the arms and legs off the floor in
various combinations. "In this position you are strengthening the lower back and sacrum and
achieving more length in the torso.
Fifth section : The abdominal series. Are exercises performed on the floor. These moves are
described as "intense" because they marry a special squeezing breath with dynamic exercises
such as leg pumps, alternating leg lifts and lateral as well as circular movements targeting the
entire abdominal structure.
Final section: Unwinding series. Performed standing, participants twirl, shift from side to side,
and walk in small figure-eight patterns. The purpose of returning to an upright posture and,
through oscillating movements, to imprint the experience [of the class] on an energetic basis.
Gyrokinesis� can be adapted for a broad range of clients, from the super-athlete to the
physically compromised or disabled person. After more than 25 years, Gyrokinesis� continues
to grow worldwide and evolve as a system largely because of Horvath's hands-on involvement
at every level.
Benefits of Gyrokinesis� Promotes spine and
joint articulation and mobilization Increases
muscular contraction, extension, flexibility, and
coordination Increases circulation of blood,
lymphatic fluids, and energy Compliments
traditional cardiovascular activity and
cross-training Provides a mobile workout
that can be easily performed while at home,
office, or travelling Increases body awareness
"Everything begins and ends with the movement
of the spine. It is the conductor. The energy is
found at the base and must rise up and down to
stimulate the vertebrae," says Master Trainer
