Instructor Training Program
Quality, Commitment, Experience

These are the core values we bring to any student who enrolls in our Instructor Training Program ("ITP"). ALL Romana's Pilates instructor trainers are handpicked, guided and directly mentored by Level I Instructors' Sari Mejia Santo, Juanita Lopez and Cynthia Lochard. Such individuals were selected to participate solely on Romana, Sari or Juanita's long-term observations of their experience, dedication and prowess as Romana's Pilates instructors. These efforts were undertaken in order to offer you the highest quality instructor training program in the industry and to prepare you for a lifetime of teaching Pilates. Romana’s Pilates instructor trainers will teach you much more than just the mat; every student must successfully pass performance assessments that cover all the key pieces of Pilates equipment!

  • Available in 15 countries and 15 US states
  • 40+ training facilities worldwide, 20+ in United States

ITP students will be taught using techniques that are as close to the original teaching as is available anywhere in the world. It is the system that is taught in the tradition of the Romana's Pilates method. The ITP features hands-on instruction, with students working side-by-side with instructor trainers. To begin the program, students must demonstrate proficiency at the intermediate level on all key pieces of Pilates equipment and apparatus. In addition, students must be able to apply the six principles of Pilates;

  • Control
  • Centering
  • Concentration
  • Precision
  • Breath
  • Flow

Upon successful completion of the ITP, you’ll receive a certificate of achievement. The illustration below details every activity a trainee must successfully complete to achieve and maintain Level V instructor rating.
