Gyrotonic® Classes In Singapore
If you’re looking for a holistic approach to fitness and well-being, it is worth considering Gyrotonic® training, which encompasses a unique movement system combining the elements of yoga, dance, swimming, gymnastics, and Tai Chi.
At Chuan Studio, we offer classes at our Gyrotonic® studio in Singapore.
What Is Gyrotonic®?
Developed in 1977 by Hungarian dancer Julia Horvath, Gyrotonic® was initially known as “Yoga for Dancers”. It aims to push the body beyond its current limitations, help you find balance, move freely, and increase mobility and coordination.
Gyrotonic® emphasises circular movements and patterns that enhance the body’s natural range of motion, while exercises like Pilates are more linear. It also focuses on rhythmic breathing, which helps oxygenate the muscles and facilitate movement. Each movement is coordinated with specific breathing patterns to promote efficiency and focus during the exercise.
It utilises specialised equipment like the Gyrotonic® Pulley Tower equipment, which consists of a weighted pulley system, an adjustable bench, and a rotating handle unit. These equipments are highly adjustable and can be customised to fit each individual’s physique and ability. Whether you are an athlete, a beginner, or are recovering from an injury, Gyrotonic® can meet your unique needs.

How Does Gyrotonic® Work?
Rhythmic and flowing movement.
Gyrotonic® exercises emphasise flowing, circular movements that are performed in a continuous and rhythmic manner. This creates a sense of fluidity, encouraging individuals to connect with their bodies more deeply.
The circular and spiral movements performed in Gyrotonic® classes help encourage the activation of core muscles.
Enhanced mind-body connection.
The mindful nature of Gyrotonic® exercises encourages you to be present in your movements, fostering a deeper mind-body connection and increasing body awareness.
Why Take Gyrotonic® Classes?
Improves spinal health. Gyrotonic® uses the body’s natural spherical and spiralling movements to decompress and strengthen your joints and spine, thus improving posture and overall spinal health.
Enhances core strength. Gyrotonic® training and exercises focus on the core muscles, providing a strong foundation for improved posture and stability.
Better mobility. It aims to increase the range of motion of your joints, such as your ankles and hips, and strengthen them.
Better coordination. The emphasis on multi-dimensional movements enhances coordination and balance, reducing the risk of injuries in everyday activities. You will experience improved coordination and muscle recruitment when done regularly and over time.
Stress relief. Doing more joint mobilisation exercises allows for more breathability, calmness, and power to the body. Hence, it results in less stress.
Gyrotonic® training is good for the brain and the body; it addresses the entire person by opening energy pathways and stimulating the nervous system. Notably, it does not cause strain to joints and is low impact.
Hence, you can attain skilfulness without struggle and enjoy improved strength, balance, efficiency, and flexibility.
