Photos from Sari's Visit

We would like to thank Sari Mejia Santo for visiting our studios last weekend.  We all had a great time and learned quite a bit.  There's nothing quite like a lesson with Sari!  Here are some photos of her visit. 

Sari Mejia Santo visits June Hines Pilates

We are excited to welcome Sari Mejia Santo to our studios.  She will be teaching in our Doyletown studio on Saturday March 19th.  

Sari Mejia Santo, Romana Kryzanowska's daughter, was born in Peru. She emigrated to the United States where she began her career as a dancer at the School of American Ballet. Her talent for choreography led her to tour with the Goldovsky Opera Company as a choreographer and a soloist.

At the age of nine, Sari was stricken with rhuematic fever, which caused many physical complications and damage to her legs and feet. Romana, already an accomplished instructor of the work of Joseph Pilates at that time, taught Sari the Pilates method to rebuild her strength and rehabilitate her body. As a young girl, Sari assisted Joseph Pilates in his studio, later becoming an instructor under Joseph's watchful eye.

Currently Sari is the master teacher of the certification seminars at Romana's Pilates® which she owns and operates along with her daughter. Sari continues to work all over the world, including Europe, South America, the U.S. and Australia. She can teach and grade tests in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian and some German!

Photos from Cynthia Shipley's Visit

We all had a great time and learned a lot when Cynthia Shipley visited our studios.  Here are some photos from her visit:

Cynthia Shipley Visits June Hines Pilates

Cynthia J. Shipley became a student of Pilates in the late 1980's.  She was introduced to Pilates, through a visit by Kathy Grant to the Dance Theatre of Harlem, where Cynthia studied and danced.  Those who were interested were directed to Romana Kryzanowska, who was Joseph Pilates' protégé and highly recommended by Ms. Grant. 

Cynthia first became a practice body for an apprentice of the Pilates certification program and eventually became an apprentice herself.  After almost two years of study, Cynthia was certified in Romana's Pilates and remained under the tutelage of Romana Kryzanowska and Sari Mejia Santo until Romana's departure.  To this day, Cynthia remains under the watchful eye of Sari Mejia Santo. 

Cynthia is a Romana's Pilates Level II Instructor.  Her responsibilities include teaching basic and intermediate seminars, conducting and grading basic and intermediate tests, assisting in monitoring the progress of apprentices, and leading apprentice meetings. Cynthia presents workshops several times a year, both nationally and internationally.
