Elena Spaziani was born in Siena, Italy.
At a young age, she moved to Rome to study at the National Academy of Dance (the only public institute for higher Dance Education and Culture to be recognized by the Italian government), where she graduated in 1997 with an Academic Diploma.
After her training, Elena danced professionally with different companies and theatres in Germany, Italy and Switzerland.
A serious injury stopped her career and brought her to discover a new movement and rehabilitation system called GYROTONIC®.
She has been a GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® certified teacher since 2004/2005.
During her Apprenticeship she collaborated with Physiotherapy Practice, GYROTONIC® Studios and the Orthopedic/Rehabilition clinic “Rheintal Clinic”, in Bad Krozingen, Germany.
Elena travelled several times to the USA, Austria, Germany and Switzerland to complete her education in the two Systems.
She is a Specialized GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Master Trainer for Levels 1 and 2.
In 2006, Juliu Horvath, creator of the GYROTONIC® method, chose her to be the Master Trainer to teach the Leg Extension Unit (one of the method’s special machines), during the GYROTONIC® World Educational convention in Rome.
Together with Uwe Herbstreit, she founded the GYROTONIC® Eaglesnest – the European Educational Center in Munstertal, Germany, which she co-managed from 2009 to 2015.
During those years, Elena worked very closely with Juliu Horvath who personally chose her to be by his side on several important occasions, such as Master Trainer Meetings, higher educational courses and to be part of different educational DVD’s.
Elena collaborates with several Studios in Europe and abroad and teaches educational courses in both the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods.
Elena has also been a Certified AntiGravity Fitness Instructor since 2014.
She keeps an open mind, nurturing her interest and curiosity to deepen her knowledge and experience through body awareness.
