“PILATES IS COMPLETE COORDINATION OF MIND, BODY, AND SPIRIT”

– JOSEPH H. PILATES

HISTORY

About Pilates

03-about-us-2

Originally named, “Contrology”, the Pilates method of body conditioning was invented by Joseph Pilates. His system of over 500 exercises was taught by him and his wife, Clara, starting in the early 1920s from their New York City studio. The system of exercises focuses on 6 principles: 

  • BREATH
  • CONCENTRATION
  • CENTERING
  • CONTROL
  • PRECISION
  • FLOW

These principles all come together in each exercise while making use of various spring-based apparatuses invented by Mr. Pilates himself. These apparatuses help support the body to return to proper alignment, while developing strength, stretching the body, and targeting specific weaknesses and imbalances. 

Nearly 100 years later, the Pilates method has grown in popularity across the world, with many creating modern versions of the method. Student and true protege of Joseph Pilates, Romana Kryzanowska, was charged with carrying on and preserving his life’s work for future generations.

Within the Romana’s Pilates International network, you can be assured that you are receiving the safest and most authentic Pilates experience as we seek to teach with the same integrity of instruction, as close as possible to the original method, that was passed down to us from Joseph Pilates through Romana and her hand-picked instructor trainers. All Romana’s Pilates Certified Instructors have been thoroughly and rigorously trained through a 700+ hour training program.
