About Us

Spiral Motion Studio was born in 2014 from the Love and Passion that I have for the GYROTONIC® & GYROKINESIS®  methods. For me, these methods embodies the best approach to movement; they are gentle and tough at the same time, pleasant for your body and intense for your mind.


My team and I teach only the original methods created by Juliu Horvath with all his principles and philosophy. Each hour is a new, joyful experience, fun for all our students - and the teachers! Our classes are tailored individually to our clients depending on their needs, from basic to advanced levels.


This is a Boutique Studio, it is the only fully equipped Gyrotonic Studio in Sydney. Clients are able to experience a taste and their benefits from all the 5 pieces of equipment designed by Juliu Horvath. It is a comfortable, cosy place, with a serene and happy atmosphere. We have attempted to create a community environment inside the Studio, as for us this is more than a job. Come and visit us to learn more. 

The GYROTONIC® method is an original, and unique movement practice which has roots

in Yoga, Tai Chi, and dance. GYROTONIC® exercise sequences are composed of spiraling,
circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with
corresponding breath patterns and they are performed on custom-designed Gyrotonic equipment.

The GYROKINESIS® method is a movement method that gently works the entire body,
opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences and
are performed on a chair, mat and standing. GYROKINESIS® classes are 60-90 minutes long.

GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® classes can be adapted to fit anyone’s ability.
The methods are practiced by people with all different backgrounds, including

accomplished athletes and dancers, college students, baby boomers, senior citizens, and people with disabilities.
