We teach the Traditional Pilates Method 

Joseph Pilates trained Romana Kryzanowska to specifically pass on his knowledge to the rest of the world, and she did.

Romana has kept the integrity of Joseph Pilates work alive until today leaving a 'Romana's Legacy' to follow the lineage of Joseph Pilates. We are 3rd generation teachers from Joseph Pilates himself.

The traditional Pilates Method holds deep knowledge about the body and has achieved documented miraculous results, often avoiding the need for surgery, rods, fusions, and other doctor recommendations bringing people to full strength & health. True Pilates works with all body conditions because it works from inside out, correcting severe back issues such as scolioses, assisting in pregnancy, strengthening injuries, training athletes and just bringing people back into health!

All of our instructors must go through The Pilates Method Certification, that can take up to 2 years to complete. All of our instructors must have "True Pilates" in their bodies before being granted a certification. We are the only traditional Pilates Method Studio in Byron Bay!!
