Luciana Castro


After a knee condition forced her to quit running, Luciana discovered the world of mind-body exercise. She first learned about GYROTONIC through Kathy van Patten, her pilates instructor trainer. As a pilates instructor, Luciana would hear about GYROTONIC, but it was a cross-country move several years later that she had the good fortune of meeting master trainer Alicia Rypma, whose deep knowledge and passion for movement inspired Luciana to train under her as a teacher. Luciana joined Marin GYROTONIC in 2012, immediately following her Level 1 GYROTONIC trainer certification. Luciana has seen the positive effects that physical movement has on the mind and looks forward to sharing her knowledge with anyone curious enough to explore it.
