"Gyrotonic exercise works on an organic level which means it moves structural bones and joints naturally and efficiently explains Leora Acoca Goldberg owner of OPTIMALBODY NEW YORK- I have been teaching Pilates and Yamuna body rolling for many years- I started teaching Gyrotonic in 2007 and I still think that there is no other method like this one, it is truly the most effective system for anti aging and healing of the body. When I started doing Gyrotonic I had injuries in both of my knees and my lowerback resulting in restriction of movements, pain and sometimes numbness. I was advised to do a surgery on both my knees and my spine but instead I looked for holistic systems that had the potential to heal my conditions. I started creating space in my spine and knees using Gyrotonic and Yamuna body rolling.
The balance between strength and proper allignmet is what makes your body heal and fortunatly more people are looking these days for methods such as Gyrotonic to help them deal with injuries."
The fountain of Youth
Many clients call it the “fountain of youth,” because it reverses and corrects the effects gravity has on their bodies, often allowing clients to return to activities they’ve been unable to do because of pain, arthritis or restricted range of motion.
Those with chronic conditions like multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injuries have also seen positive results. European hospitals have incorporated Gyrotonic exercises for years, and osteopaths and physical therapists are beginning to embrace its healing qualities in the U.S.
Star power? Yes — Lady Gaga, Tiger Woods, Madonna, Sting, Andy Murray and dancers from the Joffrey Ballet and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater have practiced the Gyrotonic method. In fact, “Gyrotonic changes your energy, the way you move, your posture and confidence. It changes everything".
