What is the GYROTONIC® method all about?
The GYROTONIC® (pronounced jie-ro-tah-nik) Method uses fluid rhythmic movements to release tension around joints, creating a balance of strength and mobility. The name (gyro means circle, tonic means healing) gives a clue to the origins of the movement which was developed in the 1970s by dancer Juliu Horvath to rejuvenate his own body after a series of debilitating injuries. The movements offer similar benefits that are also derived from dance, swimming, tai chi and yoga. This is the short version of what the method is.

I was unfamiliar with Gyrotonic until my doctor said he thought my many physical health issues could improve greatly from it. He referred me to Julie specifically, and I cannot say how grateful I am that he did. Under her thoughtful, knowledgeable, and passionate guidance and care, I have made truly unbelievable improvements in more ways than I even expected. What I love about Gyrotonic is that there are always modifications that can be used to tailor plans around anyone’s limitations. It’s also a practice that has endless ways to keep building upon progress more and more. I think anyone and everyone could find immense benefit from Gyrotonic, and Julie is the absolute best to introduce them to it!
I first started working with Julie several years ago for Hellerwork because of a recommendation from my osteopathic physician. Julie has been instrumental in my recovery from a severe back injury. It was her myofascial work that gave me freedom of movement and freedom from pain. I continue to work with her in as my gyrotonic instructor to continue to build strength and stability into my body. Julie is amazing!
