Gyrotonic Instructor Training

About the GYROTONIC® Method

The GYROTONIC® method is unique because unlike most conventional exercise machines that focus on linear or isolated movements, GYROTONIC® movements emphasize multiple joint articulations without jarring or compression in circular motions. Special attention is paid to increased mobility and stability of the spine, resulting in a superior and well-proportioned body that is less prone to injury.

This work is supported by carefully designed and hand crafted machinery developed by Juliu Horvath, creator of the Gyrotonic Method, that allows for movements that address the entire person, open energy pathways, stimulate the nervous system, increase range of motion, and improve strength and movement efficiency. This highly customizable equipment can be adjusted to fit each persons unique physique and ability, adapting for things such as height, arm/leg length and range of motion.

GYROTONIC® exercise is used world-wide as an effective cross-training exercise for movement enthusiasts of all walks of life, as professional conditioning by dancers, athletes, golfers, and equestrians, and in rehabilitation facilities, and as a complement to Pilates training, as seen at Pure Pilates. Practiced in group or private classes under the instruction of a qualified Gyrotonic Trainer, Gyrotonic is a great addition to an existing fitness program.

Pure Pilates is the largest and most fully equipped GYROTONIC® studio in Northwest Florida, with 2 Pulley Tower Units and a Jump Stretch Board. Studio Owner, Susan Clark, is a certified GYROTONIC®and GYROKINESIS® instructor. She is also certified on the Jumping-Stretching Board and a Gyrotonic Pre-Trainer.

Pure Pilates is fortunate to work with Anjali Austin, a GYROTONIC®, GYROKINESIS®, Gyrotoner and Leg Extension Unit Master Trainer with over 30 years of experience practicing and teaching the system.
