Gyrotonic® PRivates and Gyrokinesis® Classes

Gyrotonic® and Gyrokinesis® exercises build strength and flexibility while maximizing the flow of energy through the body.

The GYROTONIC® Method is a system of movement training that simultaneously lengthens and strengthens your entire body. Created by a former dancer and Gymnast, “GYRO” starts with an intrinsic core connection from your spine through your skeleton, joints, nerves and muscles. Truly whole-istic!

GYROTONIC® machines support and guide you through reaching, stretching and rotational movements which make it a favorite for both athletic pre and re-hab clients and aging adults who are seeking to reduce pain in joints and muscles with a regular practice.     

GYROTONIC® machines at philosofit include: Pulley Tower/Handle Units as well as the Jumping Stretching Board (JSB) and the GYROTONER®.

When you train in the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® method at philosofit you will be training your body to move the way it is designed: intelligent, efficient and dynamic.


Private Gyrotonic®

In private Gyrotonic® sessions at philosofit you work one-on-one with one of our experienced teachers who will guide you in exercises on the Gyrotonic® Pulley Tower and Handle Unit as well as on the various pieces of Specialized Equipment when indicated.  Your instructor will develop an individualized program specific to your body's needs and your fitness/performance goals.




Gyrokinesis® class

(Max 5 students)

Gyrokinesis® class is performed on a combination of low stools, mats and standing. Gyrotonic® is performed specialized machinery which initiates and supports circular and spiral movement within the body. Postures are harmoniously connected through breath movement coordination, articulation of the spine and decompression of joints. While strengthening the nervous system and the cardiovascular system, it will also maximize the flow of energy through the body leaving you feeling open, restored and grounded.

This technique is gentle but profound, addressing the entire body and bringing the whole person into balance. This established method works with circles and spirals within an individual's body, allowing a person to work with their own range of motion in an intelligent and comfortable way. Gyrokinesis® exercise can feel like a dance, and strengthens like fitness training.

"I work out with Ari and his team regularly. I also suffer some chronic low back and upper neck issues. I have been amazed at the response my body has had from the work with Alwyn and Gyrotonics. She has showed me that in the subtle movements can be tremendous relief. My feelings of soreness in my neck, for example, were relieved by an exercise to the middle of my back. Amazing and I know go every week."

"When I started going to the East End of Long Island regularly early last year, I was worried I wouldn't have access to Gyrotonic classes. It was with great delight that I discovered Philosofit, a studio in EH, that had expanded its location and was now offering this method. A former dancer teaching a method started by a dancer to rehabilitate his injury was too good to be true. My body and I love working with her so much that I have convinced my husband to join her training as well. We both benefit from one on ones with Alwyn. It has helped strengthen our bodies and provided added flexibility, while attending to our occasional problematic areas. Couldn't speak more fondly about this place and Alwyn!"

"Gyrotonics has changed my life! I have had 2 knee surgeries and 2 torn achilles tendons and this is the only exercise that helps me and doesn't further injure me. Ari has a wonderful team and I highly recommend trying Philosofit!"
