Alina comes from a strong background of health and fitness, and from this, her fascination with complex and efficient movement patterns began. She consequently evolved her methodology of treatment incorporating the whole body and became interested in the consequences of poor and inefficient movement patterns that arise from pain and trauma.
She graduated from Sydney University in 2007 with a Bachelors degree of Physiotherapy, and has since worked in private practices in Sydney but has also taken the time to explore Australia, working in Hobart, Perth, Darwin and more interestingly, as an outreach physiotherapist in remote indigenous communities of Arnhem Land. These experiences, as well as her own personal journey through persistent pain, have reinforced her love of enabling efficiency through relearning how to move. As a Pilates instructor since 2010, she has loved seeing the effects in practice. She has since completed her Masters of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy, in 2017, at the University of Queensland, and also tutors on APA Spinal courses.
