Alana Paraskeva



Level 1 Pilates Instructor

Originally from Ireland, Alana has called Sydney home since 2014 and enrolled in the Diploma of professional Pilates instruction with PilatesITC at the start of 2020, just in time for the pandemic to kick off! After many years of enjoying her own Pilates practice, mainly reformer based, she decided to enrol and create a work life balance that she would love, doing something that she was passionate about. Initially only enrolling in the mat work and reformer course, she soon fell in love with the studio environment and the additional pieces of equipment that came along with it and signed up for the full diploma. Since graduating Alana has been working at Sense of Power on Fridays, taking studio and mat work classes.

"Some of the things that are really important to me as an instructor are inclusion and representation within the Pilates industry. As I don't come from a movement-based background, I have often suffered with imposter syndrome, not being a dancer or athlete, just a regular Pilates lover! I want people to know that Pilates is for everybody. I love having a variety of different clients and working with their individual needs. Fun and satisfaction are also a big deal for me, I just want you to feel better walking out than when you walked in to my class!"
