Tavi views injury as an opportunity to learn and as a result, he has a vast amount of knowledge. He believes the body physically stores its life history and if it is to be let go, it has to be physically removed. It is common to talk about problems, but what he has found is that most often people will talk themselves in circles. "if you want to move past an issue, be it mental or physical, it requires movement." Conventional therapy can bring consciousness to an issue, often referred to as a breakthrough. He calls it a cut in that repetitious circle.
When working with Tavi, he will take that broken circle and stretch it out into a spiral, thus removing that issue from the memory of your body.
It is common to leave a session feeling taller, stronger, and more connected to your breath and body. Your coordination may be challenged, but it will leave you with greater flexibility, mobility, and balance.
Gyrotonic Expansion System
The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is a holistic approach to movement that is designed to meet the needs of people of all ages and abilities. Julius Horvath, the creator of the system, was inspired by movement principles from dance, yoga, gymnastics, swimming and even tai-chi. Some of the benefits of GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® exercises include increased strength and flexibility, renewed energy and vitality and an overall general sense of calm and well being. Synchronizing breathing with movement will enhance aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation and promote neuromuscular rejuvenation, while simultaneously stimulating and strengthening connective tissues in and around the joints.
SEED OF LIFE
The 'Seed of Life' is formed from seven circles being placed with sixfold symmetry, forming a pattern of circles and lenses, which acts as a basic component of the Flower of Life's design.
The 'Flower of Life' is a geometrical shape composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles arranged in a flower like pattern with six fold symmetry. Its perfect form, proportion and harmony has been known to philosophers, architects and artist around the world. Pagans consider it sacred geometry containing ancient religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. It is believed to contain a record of basic information of all living things and is the visual expression of the connections of life that run through all sentient beings. The Egg of Life is said to be the shape of a multi-cellular embryo in its first hours of creation.
FLOWER OF LIFE
The 'Fruit of Life' symbol is composed of 13 circles taken from the design of the Flower of Life. It is said to be the blueprint of the universe, containing the basis for the design of every atom, molecular structure, life form, and everything in existence. It contains the geometric basis for the delineation of Metatron's Cube, which brings forth the platonic solids.
