Join us for an afternoon chat in the beautiful country home of Inelia Garcia, a very dear and close friend of Romana Kryzanowska's. In Part 1 of our visit (see Part 2 here), Inelia shares how she first found Pilates and with it Romana, and how the development of their friendship changed the history of Pilates forever. Since the first time Inelia brought Romana to Brazil, where Pilates was unheard of, it has exploded in a pure form thanks to Inelia's hard work and loyalty to Romana's vision. After building Pilates in Brazil, Inelia introduced Pilates to Chile and other South American countries, she now has close to 50 studios in her network. Having created a Pilates hotspot, Romana travelled often to Brazil. Inelia's country house was her favorite retreat. Inelia shares a very personal view of not only Romana, but of a large part of Pilates history itself that many don't know of, since it occurred half way around the world. Our thanks to Inelia for welcoming us into her home. Learn more about Inelia, her studios, teacher training and more at The Pilates Studio Brazil.
