"...As a teacher/trainer her coverage of the method is thorough and explicit, offering both a biomechanically correct and energetically inspirational approach. Ms. Goodwin offers to her clientele the sensitive and psychologically sound environment needed for growth, by combining the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of the system."
Juliu Horvath, Founder GYROTONIC® EXPANSION SYSTEM®
"A true master of movement in dance technique and rehabilitation. Lisa Marie not only brings her dance background to her teaching, but also her experience in training and lecturing groups of diverse levels of proficiency. Her wide range of skills makes her an authority to students and teachers alike."

"Lisa Marie, I just wanted to thank you for such an amazing weekend. I learned so much from you this weekend that I think I finally feel more clear about my foundation training. –A sense of completion, even though I know that the learning will never be complete-it just feels so great to know that I have such a wonderful Master trainer to learn from such as you – that it makes all the learning that much better and complete! Thank you again for all of your giving."
Kimberly Zick, Inner Balance by the Sea GYROTONIC® Pre-Trainer, Cardiff, CA.
"Thanks so much for the GYROKINESIS® review last weekend. I feel my body getting open and stronger again. Let me know, and again, I am so grateful to you: the movements help me to heal, to center, and the atmosphere that you create, to be more loving towards self and others."
Aerin Alexander, Feldenkrais® Practitioner, GYROTONIC®, GYROKINESIS® Instructor
"Lisa Marie and I have worked together for over 20 years now. She is a safe space and a beautiful teacher who helps me process through my body, work through physical roadblocks and get strong with fluid movement. She is not a therapist, she is a GYROTONIC® and movement master trainer who has done deep work herself. Safe partners, practitioners, and spaces are important to healing and growing. I hope this sharing is helpful to you in some way." Tracee Ellis Ross
"Lisa Marie Goodwin is an amazing movement trainer for tennis players who want to open up their body. I am not even talking about injury. I am talking about reaching a range that allows us to play our best shots. Every tennis pro has a team of three people that will do for them what we do in sessions to allow our body to perform at top performance and limit injuries. I met Lisa Marie after an Achilles heel injury, and hip flexure injury. Lisa Marie is dedicated and caring to find the best way to address the injury while working on all related muscles that needed strengthening and more flexibility. Lisa Marie's studio is the best thing you will find in town, and her mastery of using GYROTONIC® equipment is beyond words. As a result of working with Lisa Marie for few months, we solved one of the major injuries and the benefits are tremendous – I am now able to play at levels I couldn’t reach before, simply because my body wasn’t in tune. I strongly recommend Lisa Marie to any athlete who is taking the sport they play seriously or need help recovering from an injury."
"I want to this time to express my gratitude for your excellent Hip/Knee Course this past weekend. I appreciate your time and effort in preparation for this course as well as your expertise in guiding us through the program of exercises. I enjoyed every minute of the course and all of the lovely participants. A special thank you to you for assisting me personally with my own challenges as well as enhancing my GYROTONIC® Teaching skills for my clients. I love this work and look forward to working with you again in the near future."
"Just finished the Dance conditioning and I loved it and the flow that you both brought to the class. I feel long, strong, and warm! Merci! Also absolutely loved the Hip GYROTONIC® tower class last Saturday. I have arthritis and lost ROM in my left hip and the turned in sequences really helped to free my hips and SI joint. Thank you so much really enjoying your classes and the recording is gold!"
"These classes you are generously offering online leave me speechless. They are so clever and creative. Learning has never been this much fun (and challenging). Also, having access to these videos to study the nuances of your performance and verbal guidance for 3 days has been an amazing gift ~ truly helpful. Thank you."
"Lisa Marie is extremely experienced and knowledgeable in the body, movement, and Gyrotonic method. I highly recommend her and her studio."
"Just finished the Dancer conditioning class! It was FABULOUS! I feel so connected through my entire legs and my hips are feeling so open. Magical! Can’t wait for next week. Merci!"
"I am so grateful to have had these virtual experiences with Lisa Marie – to see and explore the breadth of the work."
"Mahalo Lisa Marie for the most amazing Zoom tower group class! So grateful to move with you from across the pond and hear your voice! Indeed a silver lining during this time. Be safe & stay healthy! 🙏🏻"
"I feel privileged to have begun my GYROTONIC® path with Lisa Marie and to have worked alongside her for many years. I owe her a great deal for the knowledge she is so willing to share with me."
"WooHoo! Sign me up for more classes. Today was exquisite 🤗"
"Thank you so much for doing this....it is so nice to connect from afar. I would totally be into continuing this even when we no longer have to be socially distant. Your knowledge of the method is phenomenal and I have gained so much personally and professionally through these sessions."
"Thank you for today's session. It is so fun to be introduced to new material. Inspiring. Can't wait to do it again, and again, and again..."
