Sylvia is the founder of Lively Physiotherapy & Pilates. As a child and teenager, Sylvia has always been a sporty and active person. She was and still is very interested in movement, from the flow to the biomechanics of movement. After finishing her Bachelors degree in Physiotherapy at University of Sydney in 2005, she continued to complete post-graduate courses to obtain further understanding of the body, function and pain. This has allowed Sylvia to look at each individual person wholistically and treat their ailment using the ConnectTherapyTM model. She regularly assists on ConnectTherapyTM courses.
Due to the love of movement and dance, Sylvia was introduced to the Pilates Method and became an instructor through Polestar Pilates Australia and Clinical Pilates Australia. She is a mentor for Polestar Pilates Australia and regularly educates pilates students in the studio. She also completed the instructor-ship program for Kinesio Taping International.
Sylvia has a special interest in Women’s Health, especially Pelvic floor dysfunctions post-natally and has had formal training with Taryn Hallam. Over the last couple of years, she has attended and qualified to become a Cranio-Sacral Therapist and a therapist in Visceral Manipulation. When Sylvia is resting her mind and body, she loves to participate in basketball, pilates, yoga, martial arts, dancing, horse-riding and rock-climbing.
