Pilates Body Shaping

Romana's Pilates certifying center for North Carolina

who we are

We are dedicated to teaching Pilates as it was originally developed by Joseph Pilates.

Encouraging the mind and body to work together puts us on the path to achieving overall wellness

“I love Pilates as it makes me use every part of my body and build core strength. I've grown 3/4' of an inch taller by improving my posture & I've seen significant improvement in my knee's mobility thanks to Pilates Body Shaping!"

“While Pilates has made me stronger, it has also helped me understand how the habits of a lifetime (how I sit and stand) affect what my body can do! Worth the investment!"

“Pilates is the best exercise and fitness program I have ever expereinced and has been directly responsible for significant gains in flexibility which have improved my golf game."

leading staff

All of our instructors are trained through an extensive certification program that takes a minimum of a year and a half to complete. We are the ONLY certification center in North Carolina for Romana's Pilates and hold true to the proven method of Joseph Pilates.
