We are SUPER-excited to announce, we’re bringing Gyrotonic classes to Ireland for the first time. Watch this space in January for our first one-on-one sessions.
SO WHAT IS GYROTONIC?
It is a posture-perfecting workout of fluid movements on a hand-crafted wooden machine that gets your body moving in the way in which it was designed.
Gyrotonic classes are designed to take the body beyond its current limitations. People come out of a Gyrotonic class with increased freedom of movement, greater strength, and more agility. Gyrotonic exercises are adapted to fit anyone’s ability, from those recovering from injury or living with a disability to elite athletes.
The Gyrotonic Method is an original and unique movement method that addresses the entire person by opening energy pathways, 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.
The Gyrotonic Method utilises specialised equipment to guide, assist, and challenge the exerciser.
People from all walks of life take Gyrotonic classes, including fitness enthusiasts, senior citizens, accomplished athletes, and people recovering from an injury or dealing with a disability. Gyrotonic exercises help athletes improve their performance, and rehabilitation clients recover more quickly and fully post-injury. It is celebrated by A-listers like Lady Gaga, Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Julieanne Moore, Liv Tyler and athletes like Tiger Woods and Andy Murray.
Gyrotonic also stimulates your nervous system, increases flexibility and strength, clears energetic pathways throughout your body, and the constant spiralling, curling, arching, breathing, and overall fluid movement in these functional classes help to rid the body of excess lymph fluids too, so it helps with detoxing internal waste that causes stagnation in your body.
The human body is designed to work as one harmonious system, to follow arcing and spiralling paths of motion, and to transition from one movement to the next smoothly and efficiently. Gyrotonic Method creator, Juliu Horvath, designed a specialised line of equipment around these natural movement patterns. Because Gyrotonic equipment is highly adjustable, it can be customized to fit each person’s unique physique and ability, adapting for things such as height, arm/leg length and range of motion.
Our first hand-crafted machine is due to arrive in Dublin any day now! Watch this space.
