About the Studio
We are dedicated to preserving and teaching Pilates in its most
authentic form utilizing all 16 pieces of Pilates apparatus, which
was designed by Joseph H. Pilates.
We are not "Pilates-based". We are Pilates! We are extensively
trained and certified to teach the technique in its most authentic
form. During each session, instructors will use their trained eye to
monitor your every movement. Your training regimen is
personalized based on your physical needs, abilities and/or
limitations in order to make your body stronger and more flexible,
while correcting any muscular imbalances.
You progress at your own rate in a non-competitive environment
through varied and interesting movements. As you develop your
new somatic awareness and perfect your technique, there are
hundreds of new exercises to challenge you.
All of our instructors are certified by Master Teacher, Romana
Kryzanowska at The Pilates Studio™ of New York and Romana's
Pilates™, LLC. They have studied Pilates for years before entering
the intense full time training program, and spent many months of
apprentice teaching before teaching professionally. Their study of
the body, its movement, and its ability to rehabilitate, is ongoing
and required with Master Teacher Romana.
Our goal is to keep abreast of new strides in exercise, both physical
and mental, and to focus on keeping your body healthy and strong.
We honor the authentic work of Joseph H. Pilates and will continue
to teach this dynamic system as it best suits each individuals needs.
