Anneli Chasemore was born in Guildford, England to German/English parents. She trained as a professional ballet dancer at the Elmhurst Ballet School and at the English National Ballet School in London.

Her performing career includes companies such as the Norwegian National Ballet, Scottish Ballet and the Ballet Victor Ullate in Madrid. In Germany she danced with the Oper Chemnitz, Mainfranken Theater Würzburg and the Oper Halle.

Anneli first encountered GYROTONIC movement whilst dancing with the Scottish Ballet where it was already being used as a method to reduce injury levels and promote fitness. Later in her career, Anneli used the method as a rehabilitative measure to recover from a serious elbow injury, managing to restore her range of movement, and to return to dancing with a new quality to both her technique and artistry.

In 2009, Anneli was encouraged to embark upon the teacher trainer programe, and completed her foundation course with Master Trainer Gina Münsterkötter. She was certified in the Summer of 2012. During this time she began teaching the GYROTONIC method to her fellow dancers.

In 2012 wishing to deepen her knowledge, Anneli embarked on a Masters in Dance Science at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, graduating with an MSc from the University of London. During this period she was employed as a GYROTONIC trainer in two London studios.

In January 2014 she was invited by Master trainer Beatriz Pascual to teach at Studio 74, London.
During this period she also taught in Berlin, and decided in September 2014 to open her own studio in Berlin Schöneberg. Anneli is also qualified to teach pre and post natal GYROTONIC and became a Level 2 trainer in 2015 and a Jumping Stretching Board instructor in 2016.

Anneli has worked closely with Paul Horvath and has qualifications in both GYROTONIC for scoliosis and GYROTONIC for the Pelvic girdle. She is very passionate about helping people return to optimal movement after injury and illness.

Anneli has co- founded and runs the "Health Department" at the Staatsballett Berlin which is dedicated to improving physical and mental health for the dancers of the company.
