Exercise trends come and go faster than you can say, “alkaline water,” but every so often, an exercise program comes along that has a lasting effect. Pilates is a well known collection of exercises that has been around since the early 1900’s and in recent years, a specific form of Pilates known as Gyrotonics has become popular.
|Like alkaline water, Gyrotonics is great for people of all ages!|
Originally called, “Yoga for Dancers,” Gyrotonics combines movements from yoga, dance, swimming, and a variety of other disciplines to support a balanced and flexible physique. Here are three reasons that you should try Gyrotonic Pilates.
- Stronger Core Muscles
The base of all movement is the core which is why Gyrotonic exercises focus on developing the muscles of the abdomen, hips, and lower back. As a result, practitioners have better balance and smoother joints.
- Less Chance of Injury
Balanced bodies and flexible muscles mean more range of motion and therefore a less chance of injury. Gyrotonic Pilates is also an excellent form of rehabilitation from past injuries.
- Improved Circulation and Breathing
At its core, Gyrotonics is both a physical and spiritual exercise. Oxygen is important to athletic movement, which is why Gyrotonics uses breathing exercises in conjunction with resistance training.
“I want music in my body and poetry in my body, and I want to be skillful without struggle; it has to come without struggle.”
– Juliu Horvath, Founder of the Gyrotonic Expansion System
Don’t Forget Your Alkaline Water!
Gyrotonics is a holistic form of exercise that burns calories while it trains functional muscles. To make the most of your workouts, drink Tyent alkaline water before, during, and after to hydrate and recover.
Because the alkaline water molecules in Tyent water are smaller than tap water molecules, Tyent alkaline water hydrates cells more effectively. Alkaline water also neutralizes waste products such as lactic acid, which reduces soreness and recovery time.
Professional athletes in all the major U.S. sports leagues use Tyent water ionizers as part of their fitness regimens and Olympic champion Carl Lewis uses Gyrotonic Pilates as part of his. It is the perfect time to try a new workout and a new water ionizer to give your health a two punch boost!
