Founder of the studio
Anna Lombardi started GYROTONIC® in 1988 and she brings over 9 years of successful teaching experience in Pilates and GYROTONIC®. She is a certified GYROTONIC® Trainer level 1 and 2, Leg Extension, Archway, GYROKINESIS® level 1 and level 2 Beginner, therapeutic courses as well as Yoga for dancers. She discovered and started to love Pilates in 2007. In addition to GYROTONIC® she is fully qualified Pilates instructor in mat work, reformer, cadillac, wunda chair, barrels, small apparatus and rehabilitation. Right now, Anna's focus is Cranial Sacral Therapy which she had CTS1 Certification at the Uplendger Istitute in Belgium. Anna comes from a background of classical dancing. She worked with several ballet companies all over Europe for 20 years. After facing several injuries, Anna has experienced firsthand how effective the GYROTONIC® EXPANSION SYSTEM and Pilates are in addressing these issues. On retiring from her full time performing career, Anna decided to branch out into GYROTONIC® and Pilates teaching and utilize all her professional experience. She proposes a full workout, a special program for dancer, athletes, models, prevention, rehabilitation and everybody who just want to look and feel better. Her professional experience is a real added-value in her current work. She has a very good knowledge of the human anatomy, so she can 'read' your body, detect physical issues and customize workouts to meet your personal needs. Not only does Anna have certification and experience, she is also supportive, imaginative and passionate about her work.
