Romanas Pilates
Romana Kryzanowska (1923-2013) was born in Michigan. She was the world-renowned protégé of Joseph Pilates who also carried on Joseph’s legacy after his death. 
In 1940, while studying at The American School of Ballet, Romana suffered an ankle injury and was brought to Joseph Pilates. The exercises were a success, and she continued to study with Pilates. Her natural talent for movement lead her to become a star student and a helper at the studio. "Before I knew it", Romana said, "I was named a helper, which meant I didn’t have to pay anymore."
After Joseph Pilates’ death, Romana took over the studio and kept his legacy alive by creating the Romana’s Pilates Certification, her world-renowned Pilates instructor certification program.
Romana’s Pilates, or also known as True Pilates and Classical Pilates, is unique from other programs as it keeps true to the key principles and values that Joseph believed in when he first started his method. Students will be taught using techniques and equipment that are as close to the original teaching as is available anywhere in the world. 
Romana travelled the world, teaching, training, and inspiring the next generation of instructors, even in her eighties. She led an extraordinary life learning and teaching Joe’s method. Romana taught Pilates for nearly six decades, before her death in 2013. 
Her daughter Sari Mejia Santo and granddaughter, Daria Pace, have taken over the operations of Romana’s Pilates and continue with Romana’s promise to Joe and Clara.
