Romana Kryzanowska was a lifelong student of Joe Pilates who taught worldwide both teachers and students – and directed a teacher training program. She always said, “I’m not a creator, I just teach what ‘Uncle Joe’ taught.” And that was her enduring commitment to Pilates – to maintain the original integrity and spirit of Joseph Pilates’ method. In this workshop, we will explore her style approach to teaching Pilates – including some wonderful partnering techniques. Come prepared to move. That’s what Romana was all about.

Instructor Bio

Amy Taylor Alpers – studied Pilates under the direct tutelage of Romana Kryzanowska at the original Pilates Studio in New York City. She received her Pilates teaching certificate from there in July of 1989. In 1990, after moving to Boulder, Colorado, Amy and her sister, Rachel, founded The Pilates Center. The sisters then created and established The Pilates Center Teacher Training Program in 1991. The school has since expanded to include an Intermediate Program, Advanced Program, Bridge Program, Master’s Program, and a Mentorship Program.  Before Pilates, Amy was a professional ballet dancer, and trained at The Juilliard School for Dance. She taught ballet in New York City for ten years before launching her Pilates career.  When not traveling the world to teach both foundational and graduate level Pilates teacher education, you can find Amy at The Pilates Center mentoring advanced teachers, teaching classes and privately to clients.
