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.
