So which system is best for you? Good question.
Classical Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1920’s and was originally called “Contrology,” or the art of control, the idea that one should have ultimate control over their body. As a frail child who suffered from a multitude of illnesses Pilates dedicated himself to self-healing. He drew from a variety of sources such as Eastern and Western practices as well as ancient forms of Greek and Roman exercise. As he developed his system the emphasis on mind-body connection was solidified in what is now the foundation of the classical approach: Centering, Concentration, Control, Precision, Fluidity, and Breath. Clients seeking to get stronger quickly will do so in the classical approach by adhering to these 6 founding principles. Benefits include increased strength, flexibility, stamina, mental centering and focus.
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® was created by Juliu Horvath as a way to heal himself from a multitude of injuries that ultimately ended his professional dance career. The system has roots in yoga, Thai Chi, swimming, and dance. The ultimate goal is for the body to work as one harmonious organism free from restriction. This is achieved through the spiraling and circular movements that are preformed either on the specialized equipment or on the stool and floor in a GYROKINESIS® class. Benefits from a steady practice include increased mobility of the joints and spine, reduction in shoulder tension and back pain, increased core strength, improved physical coordination, and an overall sense of well-being.
