    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long does the certification program take to complete?
    The program generally takes from 6 months to a little over a year to
    complete. The number of hours each student can consistently commit to the
    program will determine how long it takes to become fully certified. At a
    minimum we expect that students commit to 15 hours a week of observation.

    How flexible is the Program?
    Each Stage begins with a 3 day seminar that is mandatory. Following that,
    studio hours can fluctuate according to your needs and goals within the
    guidelines set by your Training Center.

    Is this a full certification program?
    Yes, the Romana's Pilates Certification Program extensively covers all
    equipment, apparatus and exercises. From the more popular matwork and
    reformer to the lesser-known Foot Corrector and Breath-a-cizer, our program
    covers all that Joseph Pilates created.

    When are seminars held?
    Seminars for each stage are held regularly and frequently at our Training
    Centers around the world. Contact your local training center for more details
    or check our website for the
    seminar schedule.

    How do I get started?
