Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the certification program take to complete?
This process usually requires at least a year of commitment and application. 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 at an approved training centre. After certification our instructors attend Continuing Professional Education (CPE) each year.

How flexible is the Program?
Each Stage begins with a 2-3 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, our program covers all that Joseph Pilates created.

When are seminars held?
Seminars for each stage are held regularly and frequently at our Takapuna Studio.
