Angelo Zanfardino MOst
Angelo has been practising as an osteopath in several London clinics since graduating in 2016 from the University College of Osteopathy.
Angelo’s first career was as a professional ballet dancer, training in his native Naples and Monte Carlo, then
performing with companies throughout Europe for over a decade. Whilst dancing, Angelo suffered a severe ankle injury which required surgery and resulted in several years of difficult rehabilitation,
during which he experienced the benefits of Osteopathy and the GYROTONIC® movement system.
He was inspired as a result to become first a certified GYROTONIC® teacher, in 2007, and then a certified GYROKINESIS® teacher in 2009, before building upon these therapeutic credentials with five years of study at the British School of
Osteopathy in London, graduating with a Master in Osteopathy.
As a keen believer in continual learning, Angelo is always looking for the optimal way to help people
recover and improve their health. Since his graduation he has undertaken numerous courses to enhance his training, including on Visceral Osteopathy with the UK Barral Institute , Craniosacral
Osteopathy with Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy, ongoing specialized GYROTONIC® and
Gyrokinesis courses, pilates courses, and he became a BodyCode System teacher in 2019.
