Stefano Capitani

GYROTONIC® Pre-Trainer
Certified GYROKINESIS® Instructor
GYROTONIC® Specialised Equipment

Stefano has a professional dance background in ballet, Argentine Tango and Physical Theater.
Eight years ago Stefano was introduced to the GYROTONIC®  & GYROKINESIS® methods as part of a rehabilitation program after having injured his ankle during rehearsals. He had to put his career on hold for a long time. However, complete recovery from his injury through the GYROTONIC® method inspired Stefano to pursue a new profession as a GYROTONIC® teacher.

Stefano has studied with master trainer, Pietro Gagliardi in Rome at White Cloud Studio- one of the most prestigious GYROTONIC® studios in Europe.

Stefano has had the good fortune of working closely with Juliu Horvath, the inventor of the method. He was for three years part of White Cloud Opera, a performance company led by Juliu Horvath and Pietro Gagliardi. White Cloud Opera employs GYROTONIC® trainers with a background in dance, gymnastics and drama.

After touring internationally as part of the show ‘Bolero’, Stefano had the inspiration to present an additional approach to the GYROTONIC® & GYROKINESIS® methods called The GYROKINESIS® Method: The Daedalus Experience (click for more). Stefano was aided by his master trainer and his presentation was approved by Juliu Horvath.
Stefano’s interest in dance, how the body works and in somatic awareness led to him presenting the class.

With his passion for the GYROTONIC® & GYROKINESIS® methods Stefano is keen to pass on the benefits of the system to everyone and he enjoys teaching client of all levels of fitness.
