The Gytronic® method is an original and unique movement method that addresses the entire body opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and creating functional strength.

Gytronic® exercise sequences are composed of spiralling, circular movements which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions with corresponding breath patterns.  Each movement flows into the next allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression.  These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength, and flexibility.


The body is naturally designed to work as one harmonious system, to follow arcing and spiralling paths of motion and to transition from one movement to the next smoothly and efficiently.

The specialised line of Gytronic® equipment supports these natural movement patterns.  Sophisticated adjustments allow Gytronic® Trainers to adapt the equipment to the ideal setting for each person’s unique physique, adapting for things such as height, arm and leg length, natural range of motion and physical ability.


Gytronic® classes are adapted to fit anyone’s ability from those recovering from injury or loving with a disability to elite athletes.
