"This is a real core challenger for me. It perfectly prepares you to find success in your handstand. It emphasizes scapular stabilization, which helps you activate your upper back and shoulder muscles to avoid sinking through the shoulders." - Amanda Diatta
About Amanda Diatta
Since becoming a state-approved teacher for gymnastics & sports (Sportschule Glucker, Stuttgart), certified Pilates trainer Amanda Diatta has gained 10 years’ professional experience in the fitness industry. Amanda’s passion for Pilates springs from her love of ballet and swimming – hobbies she has pursued since childhood.
Along with continuing education in Spiraldynamik®, and becoming a back-exercise teacher and certified personal trainer, Amanda completed her Pilates training in 2009 at Pilates New York, in Joseph Pilates’ original Method of Body Conditioning. Her teacher, Davorka Kulenovic-Bischoff, was herself a student of Romana Kryzanowska, the successor appointed by Joseph Pilates himself.
After six years working with Davorka at Pilates New York, where Amanda assisted as a trainer, she realized her dream of opening her own Pilates studio. In 2014, Amanda founded CONTROLOGY in downtown Stuttgart.
Regular attendance at advanced workshops in Europe and the US – led by renowned teachers such as Kathryn Ross-Nash, Peter Fiasca, Lori Coleman-Brown, and Chris Robinson – allows Amanda to study the Pilates method in greater depth. To this end, she also maintains close contact with her international network of established Pilates trainers. Full of joy and enthusiasm, Amanda shares her wealth of knowledge and experience with her clients and trainers.
