In-Spiraling Movement Arts' co-director Lisa Marie Goodwin-Rice first became intrigued by the Gyrotonic Expansion System while she was dancing for companies such as LA Classical Ballet. Today, she shares her knowledge with students as one of only 16 Gyrotonic Expansion System master trainers throughout the world. Her spouse and directing partner, degreed biologist Jessie Rice, shares her interest in dance and also brings a scientific expertise in physical health.
In Gyrotonic classes, students stretch and twist with the help of pulleys, platforms, and an ape throwing barrels. The exercise style takes inspiration from sources as diverse as dance, gymnastics, and tai chi. The smooth motions of the machines used in the class minimize the risk of injury. Gyrokinesis classes combine the same undulating movements and sources of inspiration as Gyrotonics, but require no equipment other than a floor mat.
In-Spiraling Movement Arts' spa treatments promote wellness with ingredients such as Arnica Gold, a product of Jessie's own invention that causes pores to cry "Eureka!" Body wraps with the minerals of organic moor mud smooth cellulite deposits and slim the physique. The spa's infrared sauna raises internal temperatures and stimulates blood flow to improve the condition of skin and facilitate oxygen distribution.
