Unleash YOUR Potential to Flourish and THRIVE!
BENEFITS of Gyrotonic Exercise:
Life in our modern society places a huge amount of daily stress on our bodies. This leads to feeling chronically stiff, carrying unnecessary tension, developing postural imbalances that make us more susceptible to injury, or we’re stuck behind a desk or in a car all day lacking the organic movement that our bodies instinctively crave to stay healthy, flourish & thrive.
Sessions at Blossoming Lotus GYROTONIC® give your body the organic movement it craves to flourish and thrive through the power and organic nature of The GYROTONIC® Method. This method is a postural exercise system that re-educates the body to move with fluidity, ease and strength. Former dancer and creator of the work, Juliu Horvath, struggled with chronic pain as a result from his professional dance career, and thus created GYROTONIC® exercise to heal his injuries and to help others to do the same.
Although originating in the dance community over 35 years ago, GYROTONIC® exercise is accessible to everyone. This system gently and effectively works the entire body through spiraling, circular, and rhythmic movements with corresponding breathing patterns, and is designed to complement whatever you love doing:
While The GYROTONIC® Method utilizes specialized equipment, The GYROKINESIS® Method offers all the same benefits and only requires a stool, mat and you!
We tax our bodies every day, more than we realize. We need to give back to our bodies, strengthen our mind/body connection, and bring restoration to ourselves. How? The answer is through GYROTONIC® Exercise!
We are happy to offer Private, Semi Private and Trio Lessons in the GYROTONIC® Method.
"Suffering from back pain for most of my life, I'm always looking for alternative methods to minimize my discomfort. Laura and Steve have made a major contribution to achieving that goal. Their knowledge of anatomy, sense of compassion, level of enthusiasm and personalized approach make every session rewarding. Doesn't matter if it's a class or a private, they seriously yet cheerfully provide you with the opportunity to learn how to re-educate your body to make it work the way it's supposed to. Gyrotonic exercise has been the only workout program whose hourly routine I look forward to and whose end comes too quickly. My doctors have watched my strength grow and my pain scale decline and fully credit my working with Steve and Laura on a regular basis for these accomplishments. I can't thank them enough for all they've done and continue to do to help me feel healthier, both physically and mentally. Thanks guys!" -- Mary Lou S.

The GYROTONIC® method is an original and unique movement method performed on specialized equipment that enables simultaneous lengthening and strengthening of muscles, stimulates circulation and the nervous system, enhances joint mobility/range of motion, improves strength and movement efficiency along with coordination which equals adaptability and resilience. With Gyrotonic exercise, each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility. Gyrotonic exercise sequences are composed full-body movements which follow spiraling and circular pathways which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breathing patterns to create greater connection and harmony within the body. When you train in the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® method, you train your body to move in an organic, intelligent, efficient and fully expressed way - the way it is designed to move.
Why arcs and spirals?
The human body is designed to work as one harmonious system, to follow arcing and spiraling paths of motion, and to transition from one movement to the next smoothly and efficiently. (Envision the fluidity of dance or swimming to the rigidity of a robot.) Gyrotonic Method creator, Juliu Horvath, designed his specialized line of equipment around these natural movement patterns. Because Gyrotonic equipment is highly adjustable, it can be customized to fit each person's unique physique and ability, adapting for things such as height, arm/leg length and range of motion. This unique specialized equipment guides, assists, and challenges the exerciser.
There are two aspects to the work: The GYROTONIC® method - using specialized equipment exclusive to the exercise system - and The GYROKINESIS® method - with exercises performed on the floor, seated on a stool and standing.
People from all walks of life take Gyrotonic lessons, including fitness enthusiasts, senior citizens, accomplished athletes, and people recovering from an injury or dealing with a disability. Gyrotonic exercises help athletes improve their performance, and rehabilitation clients recover more quickly and fully post injury. Gyrotonic lessons are designed to take the body beyond its current limitations. People come out of a Gyrotonic class with increased freedom of movement, greater strength, and more agility. Gyrotonic exercises are adapted to fit anyone’s ability, from those recovering from injury or living with a disability to elite athletes. The Gyrotonic Method is practiced in a 2 or 3 person group or private lessons under the instruction of a qualified Gyrotonic Trainer.
“The ultimate aim is to be at home in one’s body, experience greater freedom of movement, to feel unrestricted and uninhibited, to be free from pain, to be at one with the nature of oneself, and to experience exercise as a creative and delightful experience.”
