was born in Siena, Italy.
At a young age, she moved to Rome,
as she was accepted to study at the National Academy of Dance,
where she graduated with an Academic Diploma in 1997.
Elena danced professionally in various companies and theatres, like MIR in Gelsenkirchen/Wuppertal, Theater Bielefeld, Deutsche Oper am Rhein Düsseldorf/Duisburg, Geneva Opera House.
Since 2006 she has been a Specialized Master Trainer for the Gyrotonic Expansion System.
Together with Uwe Herbstreit, she founded the Gyrotonic Eaglesnest - the European Educational Center in Münstertal, Germany, which she co-managed from 2009 - 2015.
Elena worked very closely with Juliu Horvath, creator of the Gyrotonic method, who personally chose her to be by his side on several important occasions, such as Master Trainer meetings, educational courses and official DVD's.
She has been traveling worldwide for many years years, collaborating with several studios, invited to teach Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis educational courses.
She keeps an open mind, nurturing her interest and curiosity in the field of movement by continuously deepening her knowledge and experience through the art of exercising.
Elena: "A sincere and genuine passion for body culture has accompanied me since my childhood".
The knowledge acquired through the Academic education, the experience as a professional ballet dancer and the long engagement in such an efficient movement technique, allow me to be able to share this with others, contributing to increasing body awareness
and wellbeing in daily life.
The natural interaction that takes place during a training session or an educational course, is for me a source of enrichment and the engine of my daily work.
