faqs / gyrotonic
The Gyrotonic method was developed by Juliu Horvath in the 1970s. The Pilates exercise method was founded by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s. Although both methods use specialised equipment, and incorporate the mindful application of movement and breath, they are both intrinsically different.
In Pilates equipment sessions, different pieces of apparatus are used to provide resistance and also give support for your body. The Pilates method focuses on linear movement, developing core strength, stability and long lean muscles.
Gyrotonic equipment relies on pulleys and weights as opposed to resistance. Gyrotonic is less linear and more three dimensional than Pilates with a greater emphasis on spiralling and twisting. Sessions help to improve coordination and strengthen the entire body.
Gyrotonic sessions take place in our studio in Camden. Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced practitioner, we ask everyone who is new to our equipment studio to start with a private starter assessment. Call Camden on 020 7483 3344, or pay us a visit to book your session. The starter assessment includes a postural assessment. Afterwards your instructor will be able to advise on a Pilates programme to suit your needs and goals.
Both Gyrotonic and equipment Pilates are excellent during pregnancy and for you and baby after the birth. However it is recommended that you do not attend sessions in your first trimester. You can return to practice in your second and third trimesters. Find out more about our pre and postnatal classes and treatments.
