Alina immediately fell in love with Pilates, back in 2003. As a former Corporate Spokesperson, TV Host, and Model, she constantly traveled across the U.S. representing an array of automotive and national brands at trade shows and live events. Standing in high heels for over 8 hours a day, took a toll on her body and she found Pilates to be the ideal workout for her busy lifestyle.
After 11 years of living out of a suitcase, Alina decided to hang up her high heels and immersed herself in the world of Pilates, studying at POLESTAR Physical Therapy and Pilates Center. These days she prefers to hang out in flip flops and share her love of Pilates with others, down in the South Florida.
Her background in the field of movement began at the early age of 5. She studied ballet, tap, and jazz throughout her elementary school years and then again in college. Alina attended Florida International University and majored in Communications. Dance has always been a big part of her life, but her true passion lies in the mountains of Colorado. An avid snow skier, Alina competed in downhill races as a child and repeatedly ranked among the top 10 juniors in Florida. She was recognized by the U.S. Ski Association as one of the top Junior Ski Racers and was invited to their program. She currently keeps in top shape for ski season by practicing Pilates daily. She is a a member of Screen Actors Guild and a Health and Wellness contributor.
