Join us for an inspiring and enlightening chat with Michael Levy, one of Romana’s closest students and friends, and current teacher trainer for Romana’s Pilates teacher program. After first meeting Romana in the 1980’s as a dance student, Michael opened and successfully ran his own studio for 21 years before he decided to devote himself fully to continuing Romana’s Pilates teacher program. As a friend of Romana’s, Michael had a chance to know her both as a teacher and a person, and observe how the two connected to define her style of teaching and approach to Pilates. In this interview Michael shares his and Romana's philosophies on your responsibilities as a Pilates instructor and secrets to successfully running a studio. He explains Romana's perception of her role and personal duty to the Pilates community, and her opinion on countless Pilates grey areas such as where to draw the line for making adjustments or completely developing new exercises, the pros and cons of private lessons, why it's important to also workout on your own, and more. In addition to some intimate Pilates history, Michael also shares how Romana's teacher training program was developed, what it looks like today, and what he likes to see in teachers.
