The body never lies.
Speak its truth, discover GYROTONIC®, the Art of Exercise
GYROTONIC® is a unique movement methodology that enables simultaneous stretching and strengthening of the whole body at any age, physical ability or limitation. The use of specialized equipment maximizes freedom of movement while reenforcing the body's musculature as well as stimulating the nervous system. With GYROTONIC® balance, strength and flexibility are highly improved with an energetic connection to the body's core.
GYROKINESIS® is an original movement technique with benefits and qualities similar to Yoga, Tai Chi and classical dance. By opening energetic pathways and increasing the body's range of movement, GYROKINESIS® combines flowing movement sequences with functional strength building repetition utilizing a stool and yoga mat. Small group or private sessions are accessible to all ages and physical ability.
This specialized equipment further develops the principles of GYROKINESIS®. Exercises are composed of full body, functional movement patterns, performed in a variety of positions from standing and sitting to lying and kneeling, all improving flexibility, coordination and core strength. The ergonomic gliding platform allows users of all physical capability to experience running and jumping in a low impact, horizontal plane with the spine and pelvis fully supported making it ideal for preventative or post injury training.

"With a profound understanding of the body and a comprehensive foundation in the GYROTONIC® Method, Cornelius guides me through exercises that systematically and safely align my spine while stretching and strengthening my muscles. Gone are the aches and pains of an old injury. I’m becoming increasingly flexible and stronger. According to my doctor I’m ½ inch taller than I was a year ago!"
- Laura Friesan
"I am happy to confirm that the GYROTONIC® treatment and exercises Cornelius has afforded me for almost a full year by now have worked wonders. My serious pain and shoulder immobility is virtually gone and my overall body and muscular strength has much improved. Thank you for your help and please feel free to use my name for reference as to your performance and very pleasant personality."
- Wolfgang Duntz
"As someone who has been practicing and teaching Pilates for years, I have learned to dissect and refine my body's alignment and initiation of movement. GYROTONIC® Method has challenged that precision with a larger range of motion, especially spiralling action. Together the specificity of Pilates and the expansiveness of GYROTONIC® Method offers an ideal training tool for high-end athletes and dancers."
- Gail Lotenburg, pilates trainer
"Starting gyrotonic with Cornelius was like discovering the elixir of youth. I found myself moving my body in ways I had forgotten were possible. Curving, twisting, moving on the diagonals, lengthening and strengthening on the specially designed machines, I have found GYROTONIC® interesting for my brain as well as my body. Cornelius’ long experience enables him to adapt the program to the specific needs of his clients and his gentle sense of humour and melodious voice almost makes you forget how hard you are working!"
- Nicola Aimé
