The system is designed to meet the needs of people of all ages and abilities.

According to local instructor Kay Min at Chicago Northshore Kinetics, gyrotonic can be thought of as a combination of movements from gymnastics, yoga, dance, swimming, and tai chi.

She says some of the benefits include: increased strength and flexibility, renewed energy and vitality and a general sense of calm and well-being.
