What is Pilates?

Katya Bennett is certified as a Level V+ instructor by the most prestigious and recognized institution called True Pilates NY/Romana’s Pilates in NYC. She has studied directly under Daria Pace (Romana’s granddaughter) and Master Teacher Sari Mjia Santo (Romana’s daughter) and she has trained with the highest level Romana’s Pilates instructors including Cynthia Shipley, Jamie Trout, and Jerome Weinberg.

Katya has completed more than 800 hours of rigorous apprenticeship in the traditional method as devised by Joseph Pilates. She has learned to modify the exercises to accommodate any body type, condition, and injury from herniated discs to a broken foot.

Pilates was developed by a German man named Joseph Pilates. As a child, mr. Pilates was chronically ill, but he was determined to make himself strong. This got him to become a body builder. Later on he got interested in human anatomy and studied many types of exercises as he could and recorded the results. Western or eastern methods he studied them all.
