Joanna Gilmer

Joanna began her journey with Pilates in 2011 in Warsaw,Poland. On the first day of practice, her teacher started class by quoting Joseph Pilates “In 10 sessions you’ll feel the difference, in 20 you’ll see the difference, and in 30 you’ll have a new body”. As a “skeptical” beginner, Joanna was amazed that everything that was said about Pilates became true. As a result, she has become a committed practitioner of Pilates, and in convincing others that thanks to this method, not only the body movement and strength can improve, but you will also gain greater balance and energy. You simply start feeling better! Joanna’s experience and her desire to help others find the benefits of Pilates fitness lead her to start her professional comprehensive Pilates teacher’s training. Through Balanced Body she is currently completing her comprehensive certification. In addition to practicing Pilates, Joanna also enjoys running, biking,cooking, reading, and traveling.
