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 look like a combination of dance, swimming, tai chi, and yoga. This is the short version of what the Gyrotonic method is.  If you would like to get a visual of Gyrotonic in motion, scroll down to watch a short video.
