“I want music in my body and poetry in my body, and I want to be skillful without struggle; it has to come without struggle” – Juliu Horvath, founder of GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®.

As the pioneer in this evolved exercise method in Bali, we hope to raise the awareness of possibilities of moving our bodies in a very different way and the positive effect of this expansion on our mental and spiritual well-being.

You will learn movement sequences to free your spine and joints in your body. The result is you will enjoy the suppleness that it brings while allowing your body to express rhythmically and gracefully, along with easing any pain that you might endure.

The Founder

Developed by Juliu Horvath, an ethnic Hungarian, professional dancer from Romania. Horvath developed what are now known as the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods as a way to heal himself and regain his strength and agility after a series of debilitating injuries during his dance career.

The Method

Gyrotonic is spiraling, circuling, flowing, breathing and rhythm. It connects you and your whole body at any moment that you are doing it. In our opinion, Gyrotonic is ‘movement of the fascia’-think of moving the web-like structure in your body.

Gyrotonic stretches and strengthens your muscles, stimulates and strengthens connective tissues in and around your joints.

The uniqueness of this method is the synchronicity of unique breathing patterns, and the spiraling, circular movements that flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions.

The carefully crafted movement sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility while allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression.These elements work together to boost cardiovascular system and to promote neuro-muscular rejuvenation.

Specialized Equipment

Juliu designed a specialized line of equipment-Pulley Tower, Jumping Stretching Board, Archway, Leg Extenstion Unit and GYROTONER®, around the natural movement patterns of the human body.

These hand-crafted pieces of equipment are constructed with beautiful woods, cable and weight resistance and handles that move in a smooth circular motion, which allows the body to work as one harmonious system, builds long and lean musculature and allows for synergistic muscle engagement.

These equipment allow transition from one movement to the next smoothly and efficiently, tones and strengthens the whole body while focusing on proper alignment, increasing flexibility, improving circulation and stimulating the nervous system.
