Why Romana’s Pilates?

„Don’t change the Work. The Work will change you.”

Romana’s Pilates is the original work created by Joseph Pilates, handed down to and continued by his world renowned protégé Romana Kryzanowska, and continued by her daughter Sari Mejia Santo. The most obvious difference between Romana’s Pilates and other disciplines typically offered in fitness clubs, are attention to details, holistic and individual approach. It is a structured system using mat and apparatus-based exercises. Workouts and their execution are specifically selected in order to bring maximum benefits to full spectrum of individuals from seniors, with lower level of fitness, to professional athletes or dancers.
Romana’s Pilates is also the highest quality in training the instructors, who, knowing the method from inside out, achieve fine and prompt results in a safe way.
