The Art of Movement is the first studio in Birmingham and the West Midlands, to offer


Developed by former dancer Juliu Horvath, the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM is a unique, holistic movement practice that consists of 2 methods: GYROTONIC method which uses specialised equipment and GYROKINESIS method which is floor based and ideal for group classes

The flowing, circular and spiral movements of both Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods develop co-ordination, balance, strength, breath control and joint mobility. You do not need to be a dancer or athlete or even an experienced mover to join a Gyrotonic or Gyrokinesis class, everyone can derive joy and health benefits from this method.

Regular Gyrotonic practice will help you:

  • Reduce pain

  • Improve posture & balance

  • Increase strength & flexibility

  • Improve bone health

  • Reduce stress

  • Increase energy

  • Improve sports performance

Clients usually leave feeling re-energised, taller, more open and relaxed.

Whilst there are similarities with yoga, tai chi, pilates and dance, this system is totally unique and innovative, taking account of long established holistic movement principles as well as the latest scientific research in to fascia, mindfulness, health and wellbeing. Whether you are in pain because of back or joint problems, or fit and looking to improve your flexibility or sports performance, The Art of Movement can help you.
