Professional Experience

Greta’s Pilates

2009 – Today

Pilates Instructor

With the successful completion of the BASI (Body Arts and Science International Pilates) certification training, as a Comprehensive Pilates Teacher, I started focusing my career as a pilates instructor.

During this period I developed a very deep knowledge of the pilates technique and have developed very creative ways to offer my knowledge to my students

My latest career aspirations are focused on offering my experience and knowledge to as many people as possible. This is why I have been organizing advanced international pilates workshops and instructor courses in Greece, England, and Poland.

To further develop my understanding of ways to motivate and educate people I authored a very comprehensive pilates manual for teachers in Polish. The book is in three major parts offering deep muscular anatomy explanations of the pilates technique and 3 levels of pilates mat exercises with detailed illustrations and thorough explanations.

Pilates is not my job but my passion in life. My driving force is the satisfaction and knowledge that I can give to my students, so they can get the most out of pilates and help as many people as possible.
