After testing many personal struggles and chronic diseases, Juliu Horvath has spent many years in self exploration and study. These experiences have led not only to true healing, but it was also inspired to create a system of movement, which offers the same benefits of yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai chi, but not not drift of these other methods of exercise. Some trademarks exercises GYROKINESIS® are flowing movements and the ease with which may execute them.
The exercises GYROKINESIS® can work on the entire body through seven natural elements of the movement of the column: forward, backward, left, right, left twisting, twisting right, and circular, as well as any other articulation joints. On a constant this approach works gently joints and muscles through rhythmic movements and undulating. These movements stimulate the internal organs of the body while the different types of breathing are integrated into the movement. The fluidity is the key. The positions are not held for long periods of time. Instead, positions are easily and smoothly connected with the breathing exercises which appear dancing and swimming, rather than traditional yoga.
A class type GYROKINESIS® begins with participants practicing self massage and types of breathing simple, something that Juliu Horvath appointed, “Le Réveil des Sens.” Then the column and pelvis are hired by simple exercises: while qu’assis on low stools, participants mobilize column through a series of movements camber, bends, penchements, twists and spirals. These same patterns of movements are extended to release the hip, knee, ischio leg, quadriceps and that in all possible directions: front, back, twisting and turning. The corresponding breathing performed during each movement stimulates the nervous system, opens the path of energy and oxygen blood. The more advanced courses offer participants an endurance training prepared for activities more involved. All courses GYROKINESIS® from beginner to advanced includes not only the seat but also the standing and lying positions. Those who practice GYROKINESIS® tend to be more relaxed in their daily lives and can move with a major flexibility and ease.
