GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®
GYROTONIC® comes from the word “gyro” meaning spiral or circle and “tonic” meaning to tone or invigorate.
This unique system of equipment and exercise incorporates movement principles from yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai-chi. It is based on fluid circular movements and exercises the musculature while articulating the joints.
