PILATES is an innovative system of mind-body exercises based on the principles of Joseph Pilates. The Pilates method encompasses more than 500 controlled, precise movements designed to stretch and strengthen muscles without adding bulk. Pilates is an exercise system that focuses on core musculature to enhance and support spinal alignment and joint mobility. Results from Pilates are assured and almost immediate. Increased strength, flexibility, stamina and a clearer mind are only a few of the many benefits. People around you will notice a substantial difference in your overall appearance.
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is a holistic approach to movement that is designed to meet the needs of people of all ages and abilities. It allows users to stretch and strengthen muscles, while simultaneously stimulating and strengthening connective tissues in and around the joints of the body. The exercises are performed on the Professional Pulley Tower that provides even and constant resistance. The exercises are based on a series of circular and cat like fashion movements that improve core strength, flexibility of the spine, joint mobility, coordination and body awareness. The benefits also include renewed energy, vitality and a sense of calm and well being.
"The ultimate aim is to be at home in one's body, free of pain, unrestricted and uninhibited and to be one with the nature of oneself, to be total and fulfilled."
Juliu Horvath, creator of The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®
GYROKINESIS® is a system that works the entire body through the 7 natural elements of the spine: forward, backward, left side, right side, left twist, right twist and circular, as well as all other joint articulation. This method gently works the joints and muscles through rhythmic and undulating movements. Fluidity is the key. Postures are smoothly connected through the use of breath, making the exercises appear effortless. Those who practice GYROKINESIS® exercises tend to be more relaxed in their daily lives and can move with increased flexibility and ease.
FELDENKRAIS method teaches you how to reconnect with your natural abilities to move, think and feel. It helps you release old habits and increase range of motion, flexibility and efficient movement.
