Physiotherapist, Pilates Instructor
Alla is an experienced physiotherapist, yoga teacher and Pilates instructor and has been teaching yoga and Pilates based physiotherapy exercise classes for 12 years. She is passionate about safe and effective practice of yoga and teaches anatomy and physiology courses to yoga teacher trainees.
Alla has particular experience in helping clients, of all fitness levels, recover from back and neck pain; specific injuries resulting from poor Yoga or Pilates technique and helping new mums get back to regular exercise safely.
In 2015, Alla completed a Masters of Science in Medicine (Pain Management), using this to further assist her clients with longstanding musculoskeletal conditions. “I consider that the nervous system has an amazing capability to remodel and adapt, enabling recovery from longstanding pain”.
She is currently undertaking a Clinical Research Fellowship at Western Sydney University, exploring the role of virtual reality gaming in treating back pain.
When she isn’t at Physio Posture Fitness Clinic Alla consults at Prince of Wales Hospital, working as part of a multidisciplinary team (pain specialists, psychologists, neurosurgeons) to optimise client care and recovery.
To keep fit and active she regularly practices yoga, chases her two young children, and enjoys coastal walks, swimming and kayaking.
