Claudia Godi is a Health and Wellness Instructor with over 16 years of experience. She was born in Florence, Italy, where she became a competitive gymnast and then taught gymnastic for several years in the well-known “Ginnastica Poggetto” sport society, Florence Italy. This experience shaped Claudia’s passion for movement. She graduated from the University of Florence (ISEF) with a degree in Physical Education and started working as a personal trainer when it was still an emerging profession in Italy.
In Rome, she ran a post-rehabilitation center under the guidance of Luigi Salvino, an expert postural alignment and back-pain relief physical therapist. During this time, she also expanded her knowledge of movement, studying and practicing GYROTONIC® and The Mézières Method (AIFIMM). She practiced these techniques on her own body,1 learning how to engage her muscles in a different way than learned in her previous physical training and sports backgrounds.
These experiences gave Claudia a new approach to her work: a new way of working out aimed at maintaining proper alignment so that the movement becomes as ergonomic as possible.
Claudia’s perpetual quest for simplicity of movement in training, and a clear understanding of how all the parts of the body are integrated to provide the best results with the least effort, brought her to the creation and development of The Godi Method®. The Godi Method® can help you free your breath from its restrictions as it combines postural alignment with exercise programs. It helps you find an effortless way to move and work out and reduce the muscle aches and pains that you’ve experienced in the past. For more information, please visit www.claudiagodi.com.
