Created by professional dancer Juliu Horvath, Gyrotonic combines a series of spiral movements, breath work, and flow to achieve balance, strength, stamina, and flexibility in your body without jarring or compressing joints. Originally called “Yoga for Dancers,” this unique mind-body system continues to be a favorite among celebrities because it delivers the same benefits as yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming, and Tai Chi—a huge bonus if you’re looking to add some variation to your exercise routine and see some real changes. Since anyone from athletes to senior citizens can practice Gyrotonic, it continues to grow in popularity with over 13,000 instructors in 84 countries.
