What is PILATES for ILONA?
For me, Pilates is a journey on which I can constantly develop, help people, create new workshops and broaden and deepen teacher training program and meet a lot of interesting people. Pilates empowers me, grounds me in my body and makes me joyful, free and fulfilled.
“Experience the fulness of life in harmony of BODY, MIND AND SOUL through inspirational actions.”
Teaching pilates is an amazing path where the teacher becomes the student of their protege. Gift of helping others with one’s skills and talents is a value in itself. Empowering work with a client by improving condition and well-being is invaluable like a diamond. We believe that harmony of body, mind and spirit is a natural right of every human being. In our work and contact with another person we emphasize empathy and kindness. By listening to what they come with we can help our clients as much as we can.
The mission of Diamond Pilates is to help others to return and/or keep great agility and good mood. We are open to another person. Individual approach is the most effective in pilates, because that way all the details are being noticed, which determines the effect of the work. During session we select exercises that suit the needs of particular client, so they can work in their potential. Therefore we are oriented at individual and duet sessions. Although, we notice the need to work in small groups, so we also offer group class for 3 to 4 participants. The work in such a group is still focused on individual needs of people integrating together in an inspirational practice at the same time.
Diamond Pilates exists since 2004. It was created by two sisters, Ilona and Bożena Włodarczyk. In those days pilates wasn’t known in Poland hence the need for study abroad. Out of passion and desire to get to the source of this method we completed courses at many schools so that in the future we could create the Academy where future pilates instructors could learn and gain experience. Couple years after opening the Studio we established the Diamond Pilates Academy.
For over ten years our teacher training program is taught with very good result. The role of the Academy is to build a community that „speaks“ common pilates language and is aimed at the highest good of other human being.
Our Studio, as well as the Academy are constantly developing. Instructors who work at the Studio completed Diamond Academy courses and have the desire to share their knowledge with enthusiasm and commitment.
Welcome to cooperate with us across a wide range of our activity.
Our motto is:
„ Hone your movement and shape like a Diamond“
