Movie Reviews

Romana's Current Pilates
April V. | New York, NY | 02/27/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I studied with Romana Kryzanowska for many years during the 1970s and 1980s. This video is clearly not an adequate representation of Romana's phenomenal capacity to inspire students with passion and heightened expertise to accomplish excellence within Joseph Pilates' method. In real life, Romana is wonderful in so many ways, but this video does not bring her gifted approach to the audience. There is not a great deal of teaching, actually. It must be very difficult to capture the magic and charisma of anyone, but I think Romana is a person worthy of the best production efforts. What happened. Yes, the old film footage of Romana and Joseph Pilates is interesting, but I don't think Romana's stellar presence is shown on this video."
Don't waste your money...

"This video is a documentary about Joesph Pilates with an introduction to the moves and a short 15 minute workout. The title leads you to belive that it is a "Powerhouse" workout. It isn't. My biggest regret is that I can't return the tape because I opened it."
Not What It Could Be

(2 out of 5 stars)

"For over thirty years I've taken lessons from Romana's students, and sometimes from Romana herself. I've often watched Romana teach. She is a wonderful person. This video unfortunately does not live up to Romana's greatness. What's strange is that Romana only teaches a little bit. So, it's really not an instructional video. In addition, the exercise titles, which cover the entire screen, interrupt the exercises themselves so it's hard to feel a sense of flow. The demonstrators look great but there are some obvious mistakes recorded on video."
Not the best as a workout but inspirational
Yoni | Israel | 03/07/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The documentary about Joseph Pilates and Interviews with Romana are very inspirational and even funny a little bit, that really makes you wanna practice after you saw what an 80 year old woman can do, but the workouts aren't the best, it has a longer workout with romana at a slower pace and explantions which aren't the best and exersices aren't peformed at both sides so it's not fun to workout with it. The full 15 minute workout without romana is very fast paced and had very little repetitions to each exercise , there are some exercises you don't see often in pilates videos, like the snake and some transitions , there also a bonus standing warmup against a wall which reminded me of ballet and didn't seem good for the knees."
