Trainer / Owner

When I discovered the Gyrotonic movement and the enormously fascinating scope of Gyrokinesis, I was also swept away to begin a new chapter in my life. I began the Gyrotonic Certification program in 2005 under master trainer Lisa Marie Goodwin Rice.



People from all walks of life, including accomplished singers, athletes, dancers, college students, baby boomers, senior citizens, and people with disabilities enjoy the strength and freedom of movement that Gyrotonic offers.  Gyrotonic exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breath. carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility.  With Gyrotonic exercises, each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression.

So come through the door for an adventure for anyone. Your curiosity is the key to the enjoyment of these methods. Your Ventura Gyrotonic team will adapt this method to fit anyone’s ability.  Private sessions and small group classes are available.  Please reach out to us to find out how you can get started today.

What We Offer

Specialized Equipment

The body is designed to work as one harmonious system, to follow arching and spiraling paths of motion, and to transition from one movement to the next smoothly, and efficiently.  Gyrotonic method creator, Juliu Horvath, designed a specialized line of equipment around these natural movement patterns of the human body. Because Gyrotonic equipment is highly adjustable, it can be customized to fit each person’s unique physique, and ability, adapting for things such as height, arm and leg length and physical ability.


The Gyrokinesis Method is a movement method that addresses the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. It is an original and unique method, which coordinates movement, breath and mental focus.  Exercises are done without equipment and is a great addition for anyone who would like to increase their range of motion and decrease tension in their bodies through stretch and strengthening movements. GYROTONIC Ventura offers GYROKINESIS classes every Saturday morning at 10 am.
