Moving fluidly ensures an increase in circulation, a decrease in cramps, and an increased feeling of acceptance around melty Terminators and puddles. Sculpt muscles into submission with today's Groupon: for $55, you get two private Gyrotonic classes at Queens Gyrotonic in Sunnyside (a $150 value).
Originally invented as a yoga-like program for dancers, the Gyrotonic Expansion System is an elasticizing exercise modality that uses multidirectional and spherical movement to condition joints and increase overall flexibility. Trainees grab the cables on custom equipment such as the pulley tower combination unit, a machine that can be pulled, pushed, and yanked in more directions than a high-school romance. The undulating motions of Gyrotonic workouts provide many inherent perks, including stress relief and posture correction, as well as injury relief and recovery.
