Romana Kryzanowska “Keeper of the Pilates Flame” Passes Away



“You can say what Pilates is in 3 words: Strength, Stretch & Control.”


Romana Kryzanowska June 30, 1923 – August 30, 2013 

Last week, the Pilates world lost the most influential teacher of the method next to Joe Pilates: Romana Kryzanowska. This legendary woman worked alongside Joe and Clara Pilates for decades and dedicated her life to spreading his method the way he intended it, with spirit, strength and power. Romana trained all of the instructors you find on Pilatesology and with theirs and your contributions we have created a growing pictorial tribute to her–Play video. If you have photos of Romana you would like to share, please send jpegs directly to: 

As this newsletter was being prepared, we were extremely saddened to hear the additional news that Julian Littleford, another shining light in the Pilates community, had also passed away. Our heartfelt sympathies go to his family, friends and the wide circle of people whom he touched through Pilates. 

Sincerely,Alisa & Jack
