The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® Method is a unique approach to movement, born as a new way of understanding the body and its possibilities.

It was developed during the last 40 years by Juliu Horvath, a Hungarian professional ballet dancer who suffered from multiple injuries and was searching a new kind of rehabilitation. He therefore created this wonderful discipline that combines elements of dance, yoga, swimming and tai chi.

The exercise sequences are composed of rhythmic circular movements which flow one into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. This original and unique method stimulates the nervous system, improves balance, coordination, flexibility and deep internal strength.

hatha yoga

Hatha yoga is the yoga tradition most familiar to Western culture. The term is derived from the Sanskrit ha, meaning "sun," and tha, meaning "moon." The practice aims to unite the active and receptive qualities represented by each celestial being.

Practitioners of Hatha yoga use physical alignment and breathing control to achieve an equilibrium between the active body and its universe. The resulting harmony manifests itself as physical strength, physiological health and emotional well-being.
