Lisa Roche: On Self-Care & Reevaluating Our Priorities

January 30, 2021
Lisa Roche: on self care and reevaluating our priorities

“Deal with what’s happening. Move that out of your body, and as that moves, you’ll start feeling – ‘Wow, I was hanging on to a lot of stuff’.”


Lisa Roche is the founder and owner of a 1 to 1 GYROTONIC® studio, called Nagare, based in New Jersey. Her studio also shares the space with other holistic therapies, such as Reiki and Massage.

We speak about the importance of acknowledging wellbeing, looking at the body as a whole, as well as how self-care is changing with this universal shift of the pandemic. Lisa also provides some great tips on how to deal with this.

She takes us through her life before discovering the GYROTONIC® method – from political science, to being a mother, to studying music – then flash forward to when she began Adult Ballet classes and her long history of back pain started to flared up.

Listen to her enthusiastic and generous story.

Justine is a Physical Therapist and GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Master trainer based in Washington D.C. I got in contact with her as soon as she revealed the changes she will begin making at her studio, Elements Center in response to ‘the last straw’ with inequality (see below).

Justine speaks openly about her upbringing, her appreciation for movement, the arts, bridging the gap between communities, and the excitement about giving others what she loves the most: the GYROTONIC® Method.

From the Archives: Dancer & PhD Graduate, Teresa Fabião on Research, Movement & Travel

January 19, 2020
teresa fabiao phd dancer research

During my time in Portugal, I taught GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® in Lisbon at Equilibrium and Little Yoga Space, while also covering classes in Porto at Instituto do Lago (where I would later visit with Teresa).

I met Teresa after of my classes at Little Yoga Space where she mentioned that she is also a dancer and has also studied the GYROTONIC® Method, and although she lived in Porto, she would like to collaborate in the future. I was so happy she introduced herself that day – we remained friends ever since.

Teresa has recently been in Northern California for 3 months and has just completed her Level 1 Tamalpa Institute-life / Art Process Immersion certification with Anna Halprin and her daughter Daria Halprin. She will continue until May for the next progression of the program.

This conversation was before this journey and was an evening we spent together in my kitchen in Lisbon when she was in town for a dance show, just chatting over tea. I then decided to begin recording.

Between being busy with teaching and then relocating to London, this has been on the back burner for way too long. Finally here’s our conversation – uncut.

Enjoy the inspiring Teresa Fabião on research, movement, and travelling.

October 3, 2018
introducing Babsie Steger dance actress trainer health coach

Babsie is a dear, yet long distance, friend of mine. We first met in 2016 at the GYROTONIC® Applications for Dancers Course in Paris, France, but have kept in contact since then. In fact, she’s helped me a lot with my food intolerances and recurring Candida via Skype.

In her most recent accomplishments, Babsie has created her own natural product called, MAGIC BEAUTY OIL, which is a lovely organic blend of vegetable oils and essential oils of 100% absolute purity – no additives, preservatives or synthetic products. Read on to see how Babsie succeeded as a Dancer, Actress, and a Health Expert.

Babsie Steger was born in Austria. At the the age of 7, she passed the competitive entrance examination for the Ballet School at the Opera in Vienna. In addition, at 14 she was also ranked the best Austrian tennis player. Upon graduating from the Vienna State Opera, she moved on to working successfully as an actress in France.
At 19, Babsie arrived in Paris while earning her living as a dancer and model. Fashion shows, advertising shoots, etc., ensued. She then became a fully-fledged actress and performed in international films and series’ such as Highlander, as well as Largo Winch, filmed in Great Britain and Canada, and the international show of Borgia in Europe.
At the same time, her first trade as a dancer enabled her to learn how to know her body. Natural and healthy food was always her priority. Watching what you eat every day plays a vital role in developing a strong, healthy body; physically and mentally.

In 2011, she published her first cookbook on Austrian pastries, Stroudel, Koughlof et Cie (Marabout Editions) in which the recipes emphasised the use of organic products as well as its focus on people’s well-being.
Babsie knew as a young girl that combining and balancing very natural ingredients of food with careful attention to good nutrition was important for her. In the last 25 years, Babsie worked with her sister – a medical doctor specialist in homeopathy, naturopathy, acupuncture, meditation – who formed the health expert she is today
Thus in 2015, she made the discovery of a very effective method called natural face lifting. Now Babsie teaches lessons and organises workshops on how to practise natural face lift. Shortly after, Babsie developed her very own successful skin care product, MAGIC BEAUTY OIL, an exceptional oil for face and neck, 100% organic; only natural and rare ingredients.

This honest and natural beauty oil regulates impurities, fights strongly against free radicals, tightens pores, and reduces pigmentation spots.

The skin is an organ that absorbs all the products (cream, oil, etc.) that you apply to it and transports them into the blood. Therefore it is very important, that your treatment is nontoxic, and the purest, most natural as possible so that it brings the necessary nutrients to the epidermis.

– Babsie Steger

This treatment is all the more exceptional since it adapts to any type of skin. The essential oils treat, regulate and boost the skin in depth. Magic Beauty Oil’s treatment leaves your skin deeply moisturised, refreshed, smooth, and radiant.
