What is the GYROKINESIS® Method?

Word Origin



combination form.

relating to rotation




movement; motion


The precursor to the GYROTONIC® Method. Originally created by Juliu Horvath to adhere his dance injuries AKA ‘Yoga for Dancers’ in the 1980’s. It then developed even further to the GYROKINESIS® Method.

The Method

Classes often begin on a stool with spinal mobilizations or self-massage, focusing on alignment within movement. The student learns basic principles such as narrowing the pelvis and the arch and curl to create expansive full-bodied movements, while creating space in the joints.

Who is it for?

For those wanting to take their dance and/or fitness practice to the next level, find release in tight/ overused muscles, strengthen weaker/ less used areas, enhance body awareness…the list could go on.

Become a Certified GYROKINESIS® Trainer

  1. First take about 10 classes to be comfortable with the technique with a certified Gyrokinesis Trainer.

  2. Then you can attend the Pre-training course which is followed by the Foundation course, which is taught by a Master Trainer.

  3. You then have Apprentice hours (in your own time) and Supervised Apprentice hours (with a Master Trainer) to complete. Once the hours are completed, your newly learned skills will need to be approved to continue.

  4. At last, you can attend the Final Certification course, which takes place over 3 days.

  5. The Gyrokinesis Level 1 Certification lasts for two years. After that, you will have an array of options to choose as an update.

 Happy Spiralling!
