Expand your movement and flexibility with GYROTONIC® Expansion System
MatWorkz offers one of the area’s only GYROTONIC® studios, bringing the performance and healing properties of this exercise program to the Central Florida community.
Created by Juliu Horvath, this unique approach to fitness promotes greater ease of motion, enhances strength and good overall health. As a professional dancer, Horvath sustained injuries that inspired him to study and develop a solution to promote his own healing. Finding personal success with his method, he adopted these techniques into a program that anyone can perform for better fitness, movement and flexibility
What is GYROTONIC®?
Based on the name itself, “gyro” (meaning “spiral”) and “tonic” (meaning “makes you feel better”), the method is based on simple principles: joints perform and sustain themselves longer if they are put through many ranges of motion, Breath is our life force, and stagnate energy in our bodies can create disease. This harmonious system incorporates specific exercises and breathing patterns paired together to build coordination and aerobic strength through arching/curling, spiraling, side arching, and “waving” movements.
GYROTONIC® is made up of equipment to achieve these ends. MatWorkz has two of these specialized pieces: the tower pulley and the jumping-stretching board. Each piece allows for unique yet consistent ways to achieve strength and flexibility.
What is GYROKINESIS®?
GYROKINESIS® is the foundation of Juliu’s work, and was originally called “yoga for dancers.” Taught in a group setting and performed on a low stool and “lilly pad” (mat), the focus is on similar types of movements without the need for equipment. Breathe and fluidity of motion are used to stimulate the organs, oxygenate the body and expand the joint range of movement.
