Zdecydowanie polecam Akademie Diamond Pilates każdemu kto decyduje się wejść w piękną drogę nauczania tego systemu. Szkolenie solidnie przygotowuje przyszłego instruktora zarówno pod względem wiedzy jak i praktyki także po ukończeniu czułam się gotowa do dzielenia moja pasją z innymi. Ilona świetnie wytłumaczyła ćwiczenia i modyfikacje i chętnie dzieliła się swoim ogromnym doświadczeniem a samo szkolenie przebiegało w bardzo przyjemnej, inspirującej atmosferze 🙂 niewątpliwym atutem jest możliwość nauki na każdym sprzęcie, nawet klasycznym typu Ped-O-Pul czy Foot Corrector co było dla mnie ważne przy wyborze odpowiedniego szkolenia. Tak wiec polecam gorąco!!


Niezbędna teoria została przedstawiona w atrakcyjny sposób. Wstęp teoretyczny nie przyćmił jednak części praktycznej, która stanowiła właściwą niezwykle rozbudowaną część szkolenia. Dzięki zastosowaniu aktywnych metod, angażujących wszystkich uczestników, przyswojoną teorię można było sprawdzić w praktyce, szybko weryfikując ewentualne błędy. Założone przed rozpoczęciem szkolenia cele zostały zrealizowane, a otrzymane podręczniki z dużą ilością zdjęć cały czas są pomoce dają duże wsparcie.


Super atmosfera, wysoki poziom wiedzy osoby szkolącej. Barwne i bardzo profesjonalne prowadzenie szkolenia.


Współpraca z Iloną, jej zaangażowanie i wiedza pomogły mi odkryć swój własny potencjał i upewniły mnie, że uczenie Pilatesa jest moją drogą.


I fell in love with Pilates. I believe that it is an amazing base for a correct and strong body. During the course I learned to work from my mind and to listen to my body. Understanding the movement made me feel I can do anything. I started a new journey with Ilona. Her experience and professionality is a gift. She gave me a lot of tools and made me feel confident with the world of Pilates. I will never forget that she believed in me and did not let me give up. My advice to future students is that you need time and patience, do not hurry up. Be committed.


Po szkoleniu w Akademii Diamond Pilates trening na macie stał się dla mnie przejrzysty, logiczny i bardzo dobrze zorganizowany. Zbudowałem fundamenty i szacunek do własnych ograniczeń. Szkolenia w ADP to szkolenia dla wymagających i szczerze zainteresowanych tematem. Polecam z całego serducha 🙂


I have been a passionate Pilates practitioner for years. Moving to Poland in 2017 as an expat I decided to turn my hobby into a professional knowledge. Since I didn’t know anybody nor the Pilates scene, I was researching via web for the best Pilates studios in Warsaw. I noticed very quickly that Diamond Pilates Studio is the best choice as the owners are extremely experienced and have opened the first professional Pilates studio in Poland.
Through my work with Ilona I started to think about the movement more and in depth. Also my understanding of the Pilates principle and each exercise has improved drastically. I’ve discovered new possibilities and I’ve gained confidence in my body. I am grateful that I chose Diamond Pilates Studio & Academy for my education and can recommend it to all interested students and say that quality should always be your priority in education.


Szkolenie Kompleksowe dało mi pokorę do większej pracy. Podczas kursu wprowadziłam nowe elementy do swojej pracy nad ciałem, zwróciłam uwagę na detale, nad którymi ciągle muszę pracować. Dostrzegłam też jak praca na macie uzupełnia się w pracy na sprzęcie.
