The Legendary Romana Kryzanowska

By August 30, 2013

Follow me on:

Romana-KryzanowskaA true legend of the Pilates world has passed away. The great Pilates master Romana Kryzanowska was born June, 30, 1923 and died peacefully in the early morning hours of August 30, 2013.

Romana's passion for life and her commitment to preserving and teaching the work of Joseph Pilates has been an immeasurable gift to the Pilates world. She is greatly loved and highly revered, and I know the light of her work and life will continue to illuminate Pilates for a long, long time. Thank you, Romana.

There will be more to say but for now, my heart-felt best wishes go out to all of Romana's family, friends and students. It is a good day to contemplate a life so fully lived.

A memorial will be held September 13 at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City. More information through Romana's Pilates
