What In the Name Of Health Is a GYROTONIC© Workout?

by | May 31, 2022

HIIT, Reformer Pilates, Hot Yoga and Spinning are all exercise classes you’re probably familiar with…but what is the Gyrotonic Method© and how does it work?
The GYROTONIC® method is a unique movement modality, inspired by yoga and holistic in nature, to improve strength and flexibility. All moves are performed on a contraption called the Pulley Tower ( while its name may remind you of a 16th century anecdote to a device used way back when) It is most certainly, a modern creation that is designed to cultivate mindfulness with the human mind and body using gentle movements.

GYROTONIC® classes link slow, controlled, circular movements with breath, to create greater mind-body awareness, long and lean muscles, improved posture and balance, increased mobility and a stronger core. GYROTONIC® is a powerful, low-impact workout for everyone, no matter their experience or fitness level.
Triyoga GYROTONIC® teacher Karrie Dene says, “Pilates and GYROTONIC® classes often feature under the same umbrella as both methods aim to increase flexibility and strength and can involve equipment. However, the movement experience is very different. One way to describe the difference is to say that Pilates is like classical ballet and GYROTONIC® is like contemporary dance…”

“GYROTONIC® classes use specialised equipment, the main one being the pulley tower. The tower uses various pulleys and weights to apply constant resistance to the circular and rotational movements – this enables GYROTONIC® exercises to become multi-directional and three dimensional, working the body as an integrated whole, through flowing, larger ranges of motion, resistance and breath patterns.”
“As much as I have tried to give you some insight into what GYROTONIC® is about I truly believe that you must experience it for yourself and feel the freedom of movement and flexibility that it creates in your body.”

Founded in 2000, Triyoga has become London’s top destination for yoga, Pilates and treatments, creating beautiful spaces where everyone can belong.
