Physiotherapist / Physical Therapist, Pilates Instructor
Lana, a Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor with 23 years’ experience in the dance and movement world, is driven by the overwhelming desire to help empower individuals to change their total health through efficient movement. She graduated from Sydney University with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and went on to gain her Diploma in Professional Pilates in Studio/Rehab with Polestar Pilates. She is now an International Polestar Pilates Mentor and Teacher Trainer.
Throughout her professional years she has come to discover that no matter how we might try, the biological, psychological and social elements of our health are inextricably linked. One cannot consider one element without taking into consideration the other. This stands true, despite the vision that the modern health sciences have taken of, understanding the parts but not looking at the whole. Lana believes that we all desire to achieve and maintain a state of ‘total health’ and to do this we must keep these three basic pillars, the Biological, the Psychological and the Social/Spiritual in balance, a task which is no easy feat in this day and age.
It is out of this passion and belief that BPS Tensegrity was created with the aim of providing its community with the knowledge of how a ‘healthy’ human body works, a skill set which individuals can use to transform their goals into reality, the maintenance of a burning desire to continue and better their health journey and the ability to effectively communicate their wishes and achievements to themselves, and the wider health community.
