Pilates & GYROTONIC® Methods

Today, Pilates is the hot new trend, but there’s a lot more to it. Created in the 1920s by Joseph H. Pilates, the method focuses on correct body alignment through neuromuscular retraining. With a series of precise movements, Pilates uses specially designed equipment to improve flexibility and strength, while heightening awareness of muscle function and control. Pilates is an effective form of exercise and rehabilitation that improves concentration, refines posture and lengthens muscle.

GYROTONIC® Created by Juliu Horvath, Gyrotonic® is a revolutionary system involving muscular movements that mobilize and articulate the spine and joints. The exercises rely on circular motion to simultaneously stretch and strengthen the body, thereby improving range of motion and coordination. Gyrotonic® also uses synchronized breathing performed in a rhythmic expression to allow for a gentle or vigorous aerobic workout based upon personal goals.
