Early this morning, August 30, 2013, Romana Kryzanowska passed away. She was Joe Pilates' chosen protege and his method would not exist as it does today without her profound influence. A shining light who showed legions how to live through her spirited, loving and beyond all, enthusiastic joy for life, Romana trained all of the instructors you find on Pilatesology and these photos come from their personal albums. If you have photos of Romana that you would like to add to this tribute--please send jpegs directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Romana's legacy lives on through her daughter Sari Mejia Santo and her handpicked team who run her worldwide teacher training program. Find a training center near you at: Romana's Pilates.
