The GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods are complementary exercise methods that fall under one umbrella- the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®. Both methods were developed by Juliu Horvath, an Hungarian native, professional dancer from Romania. Horvath suffered a series of debilitating injuries during his dance career, and began developing what are now known as the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Methods as a way to heal himself and regain his strength and agility.
There are Specialized Therapeutic Applications for Pelvic Girdle, Shoulder Girdle, Scoliosis, developed by Juliu Horvath’s brother, Paul Horvath. Paul is the former coach of the national Romanian Olympic gymnastics team . He later became a physical therapist and has been practicing at the Reintalklinik (Germany) for more than 30 years.
Since the birth of the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods, 30 years ago, the GYROTONIC EXPANTION SYSTEM® has grown to include a global community of over 13,000 GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Trainers teaching in 84 countries.
