The Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis Methods are highly adaptable, making them accessible to anyone, regardless of age or physical ability.

The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® Method includes both Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis Methods. These methods are highly complementary and can be practiced independently or together for maximum benefit. View the videos below for a more in-depth understanding of these transformative fitness experiences.



Gyrotonic sessions 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. Athletes improve performance. Rehabilitation clients recover more quickly post injury.

This method utilizes specialized Gyrotonic equipment and is instructed in private or semi-private sessions. Gyrotonic St. Louis Central is the only studio in St. Louis equipped with every Gyrotonic machine available. This equipment offers fluid feedback and complete freedom of movement. It utilizes mild resistance to strengthen joints where most injuries occur.

"...a movement system that allows the body to fully express itself while being totally supported through the equipment. It can accommodate anybody in any walk of life.” - Jackson Kellog | Master Trainer


Gyrokinesis classes can be adapted to fit anyone's ability. People from all walks of life including accomplished athletes, fitness enthusiasts, senior citizens, and people recovering from an injury or dealing with a disability take Gyrokinesis classes. Focus on the breath stimulates a sense of calm, well-being and mental clarity.

The Gyrokinesis Method is a movement method that addresses the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. It is an original and unique method, which coordinates movement, breath and mental focus.

Specialized Equipment

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. Gyrotonic Method creator, Juliu Horvath, designed a 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.
