5 differences between pilates + gyrotonic

Read about what makes Pilates and Gyrotonic different, or find out for yourself with our Pilates + Gyrotonics sessions at triyoga. 

1. Gyrotonics Movements

The movement patterns in Gyrotonic are generally more circular and rotational than Pilates, which is generally more linear.

2. Gyrotonics Breathing Patterns

The Gyrotonic method has a bigger range of dynamics with breathing patterns, which reflect and support our bodies more than Pilates.

3. Gyrotonics Positions

In the Pilates method, we generally start with movements lying down and later on progress to upright postures. In the Gyrotonic method, we start with seated or upright poses straight away.

4. Gyrotonics Machines

The two methods use different types of machines with different types of resistance. Gyrotonics machines allow for circular movement patterns to support increased joint mobility. They use a combination of weighted pulleys and rotating elements to stretch and strengthen the body and are used to treat and prevent a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions.

Traditional Pilates equipment allow for a wider range of movement across the whole body. Core Pilates equipment includes the Pilates reformer, cadillac, barrels, wundachair and pedipole. You can read more about these on our equipment Pilates page.

And of course we can’t forget the humble Pilates mat, ball, ring and resistance bands that are core to any mat based pilates class.

5. Gryotonics Focus

In the Pilates method, we practise using different parts of the body more in isolation before integrating them with the rest of the body. In the Gyrotonic method, we generally work the body as an integrated whole right from the start.
