Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Gyrotonic Expansion System is an exercise modality created by Juliu Horvath, an ethnic Hungarian born in Romania. Horvath was a swimmer and gymnast before becoming a ballet dancer with the Romanian State Opera Ballet. He defected from Romania in 1970 while touring in Italy and ultimately sought asylum in the United States, subsequently dancing with the New York Opera Ballet and the Houston Ballet. Horvath tore his Achilles tendon and herniated a disk while in Houston, injuries that ended his dance career. Drawn to yoga since a child, Horvath began to develop his own form of yoga in an effort to rehabilitate his injuries. He sequestered himself in the Virgin Islands, and during this period of intense self-study, Horvath began to develop what was once called Yoga for Dancers and has since evolved into GYROKINESIS exercises.show more
