How are the Gyrokinesis® and Gyrotonic® exercises different?

The Gyrokinesis® exercise was actually developed before any of the equipment was made. It is a series of movements done on a stool and on a mat that provide a complete stimulation for the entire body. The Gyrotonic® exercise is the equipment aspect of the system. A typical Gyrotonic® session will include some Gyrokinesis® exercises (usually done as a warm-up) before progressing on to an equipment for the remainder of the workout. We often ask our clients to do these Gyrokinesis® exercises as their homework program between sessions or to take a weekly Gyrokinesis® class so they can fine-tune the movements, which make up the basis of the system.
