Sandy Godina is a former attorney who received her law degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1997. She was introduced to Pilates while practicing law and enjoyed it so much that she changed careers. Sandy received her certification from Romana’s Pilates, where she trained with Joseph Pilates’ world-renowned protégé, Romana Kryzanowska, and master instructor Sari Mejia Santos. During her apprenticeship at Romana’s Pilates, Sandy completed over 700 hours of observation, instruction and testing, including three practical and two written exams. Because people come from all over the world to study at Romana’s Pilates, she had the unique experience of studying with apprentices from various countries, including Japan, Germany, France, England, Italy, Iceland, Bermuda, Chile, New Zealand and Australia. Sandy has taught students of various ages (from 9 to 90) and skill levels (beginner, advanced and in-between). She also has experience teaching students with different injuries. She believes that everyone’s body, from the beginner to the advanced student, is a work in progress, and she enjoys challenging her clients to exceed their own expectations.
