GYROTONIC® AND PILATES : A GOOD COMBINATION
Both Pilates and GYROTONIC® share the training of the mind to control the body. As your senses of body awareness and co-ordination are developed, you will be able to control every aspect of your body.
Pilates concentrates on the ‘core’ postural muscles, stabilizing the trunk, strengthening weak muscles, lengthening muscles that are short and increasing joint mobility. Once stability in the torso and length in the spine is achieved can you think about stretching and strengthening.
GYROTONIC® compliments Pilates as it enhances awareness of co-ordination, strength and flexibility. Emphasising multiple joint articulations, strengthening the surrounding ligaments. Through resistance the concentric and eccentric forces exerted by the involved muscles are maximised and evenly distributed between agonistic and antagonistic muscle groups.
Each exercise is synchronised with a corresponding breathing pattern creating a gentle or forceful cardiovascular – aerobic stimulation awaking your senses. Stabilisation happens through contrast. In a nutshell with both Pilates and
GYROTONIC® intention is the driving force that moves the body.
The THE GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® was conceived by Juliu Horvath using key principles of gymnastics, swimming, ballet, and yoga through which major muscle groups are worked in an integrated manner. This System is supported by exercise equipment, specifically designed around the human body to allow total freedom in movement, no restriction to speed or versatility, and enhances coordination, strength and flexibility.
I discovered the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® whilst working and teaching the Pilates Methodology. Through the practicing of GYROTONIC®, I was convinced that this movement therapy was what my body needed as well as loving the gracefulness and fluidity of the movement. “Its been liberating to allow my body to move fluidly. As we become adults its, it’s rare that we move joyfully or free in ways that honour our spirit.”
