Known for the accuracy and depth of her analysis of movement patterns in both animals and humans, Maryna's involvement in the world of the moving body began early. Raised in the Hudson Valley area of New York, Maryna began coaching soccer at the age of 16, became the first female soccer referee at the age of 17, and co-founded the first girls' soccer league. She later taught recreational skiing and horse back riding, and was an Instructor for T.R.O.T., Therapeutic Riding of Tucson.

For many years, she was deeply involved in the sport of endurance riding (long distance horse races) as competitor and crew, where she pioneered the introduction of concepts of sports therapy into the sports horse world. She would go on to apply what would become Kinaesthetics tm to elite athletes from the disciplines of competitive trail, cutting, dressage, driving, endurance, eventing, racing, roping and vaulting, including winners of the Tevis Cup, and World Championship in Rome, Italy 1986 and the World Equestrian Games in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1990.
