Like Pilates, GYROTONIC® is a great method for strengthening the core muscles of the pelvic floor, abdominals and back, but while Pilates tends to focus on linear movements,
GYROTONIC® is very three dimensional. The exercises are often performed seated, and its circular movements are noted for increasing flexibility, overall body strength and mobility.
GYROTONIC® is also nonimpact, but there is a cardiovascular element to these exercises. This makes it an ideal choice for pregnant women. The increase in blood circulation helps prevent swollen legs and varicose veins, energizes the body to combat fatigue, and helps to relieve the constipation that’s often associated with pregnancy.
GYROTONIC® is also taught one on one so that the instructor trained in prenatal GYROTONIC® can adjust the exercises to not only fit each individual mother, but each stage of her evolving pregnancy.
Each pre- and post- natal session is part of an individualized treatment plan and takes into consideration your trimester as well as any specific injuries, ailments, or conditions.
