The Romana’s Pilates Approach - Joseph Pilates asked his longtime student, Romana Kryzanowska, to continue teaching his method of body conditioning after he was gone, and dictated every exercise to her exactly as he meant it to be. When Joe died in 1967 Romana helped his wife, Clara, run the studio and has been teaching ever since, maintaining the integrity of the work in its original form.
In the last several decades, Pilates has exploded, becoming more mainstream, and many people have added their own spin on the work, some offering certification programs. While it has been very exciting that Pilates has impacted so many lives, and many are getting good results from these variations, some of the changes people have made or their lack of training before teaching have caused injuries, sometimes giving Pilates a bad name. Although by the time they tried it was not possible to trademark the word “Pilates,” in an effort to put a label on Joe’s original work, Romana recently trademarked “Romana’s Pilates” and “True Pilates.” And today Romana and her daughter Sari continue to travel around the world teaching the Pilates method just as it was taught to them by Joseph Pilates.
