Romana’s Pilates is a family owned and operated studio in Fort Lauderdale that seeks to bring three generations of Pilates’ expertise to South Florida. The instructors at Romana’s Pilates teach the exercises and philosophies of Joseph and Clara Pilates as handed down to their world-renowned protégé, Romana Kryzanowska, and later her daughter, Sari Meijo Santo.
After “Uncle Joe’s” and Clara’s deaths, Kryzanowska inherited their New York City studio and preserved the Pilates’ legacy by traveling the world to educate the next generation of Pilates instructors. Kryzanowska’s daughter, Santo, who also had the opportunity to train directly with the Pilates, taught at her mother Romana’s side for more than three decades. Romana’s Pilates owner Daria Pace and Santo’s daughter would later join her mother and grandmother in teaching the Pilates method.
At Romana’s Pilates, the instructor will personalize a workout tailored to the individual’s needs and abilities, improving natural rhythm and coordination to feel and look one’s best. Regardless of age, gender or physical limitations, Pilates practitioners feel the difference in how they walk, play, work and, most importantly, how they live.
Romana’s Pilates is located at 3045 N Federal Highway, 60-D, Fort Lauderdale, 917.470.8341 or 954.769.0421
