Your Instructor

Jacqueline Goguen
Studio Owner and Certified GYROTONIC® Instructor

The benefits I have experienced practicing this extraordinary form of exercise have been many and beyond the obvious. Not everyone aspires to be a dancer, but how many of us would like to feel the gracefulness and confidence of one…the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® will help you achieve this. 

I know intimately that we experience something wonderful and profound physically, emotionally and spiritually when we are fully present and at peace in our physical bodies. Practicing the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® encourages and develops this extraordinary state of being. In fact, GYROTONIC® exercises seem to require it just by the very nature of them.

My Journey of GYROTONIC® Practice

Vivaldi - Four Seasons
I was first introduced to the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® while Majoring in Dance at Cornish College of the Arts and have since had the privilege to train with some of the most respected GYROTONIC® Trainers:  Magali Messac (GYROTONIC® Master Trainer and former Principal Dancer with American Ballet Theatre and Pacific Northwest Ballet); Karen Sherwood (Certified Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analyst, educator, choreographer and performer; Debra Rose and Nora Heiber at San Fransisco GYROTONIC®; and most recently with both Leslie Hubbard in Seattle, Emma Ledbetter (Kingston) in Portland, Oregon and Mari K Kasich at Miami Beach GYROTONIC®. All are highly regarded within both the dance and GYROTONIC® teaching communities.
