Magda is the owner and instructor at Pharonik Pilates. She discovered Pilates after the birth of her first child. During her first pregnancy, she gained 80 pounds. After having her child, Magda worked vigorously to lose the weight. She performed all kinds of exercise activities including running, aerobics, spinning, weight lifting, etc. After training for about 15 months, Magda discovered Pilates. As she continued to include Pilates into her exercise regimen, she noticed how much quicker she was able to achieve her pre-pregnancy weight goal. Furthermore, she enjoyed how it made her feel.
After continuing to study and practice Pilates during her second and third pregnancies, Magda decided to become a Pilates instructor so that she could share the benefits of Pilates with others. Magda studied and trained at the Pilates Center of Boulder for over a year, then obtained her Pilates Certification through the Body Arts and Science International (BASI) Program, certified by BASI Master Instructor and Faculty Member, Kristi Cooper-White, founder of Pilates Anytime. [Kristi is Oprah Winfrey’s Pilates Instructor along with many other celebrities.]
Magda is a third generation descendent teacher of the Pilates method and has trained over 8 years with Cara Reeser, a disciple of Kathy Grant, who was a direct protégé of Joseph Pilates. Magda completed the Kathy Grant Heritage Training Program under Cara Reeser in 2012 and she completed her Advanced Master’s Program in Pilates from the renowned Pilates Center of Boulder in May 2016 with Rachel Taylor Segel and Amy Alpers. [Rachel and Amy trained under Romana Kryzanowska, Joseph Pilates’ protege and inheritor of his studio in NYC].
Magda enjoys training a variety of clients from those recovering from injury or surgery to professional athletes such as Denver Broncos which she helped trained up to their Super Bowl 50 victory and continues to work with them. Magda believes that with Pilates…there is something for everyone!
