PilatesHouston believes strongly that personalized training is necessary to get the most out of the Pilates Method. We offer private sessions and semi-private sessions, which are limited to 2 clients maximum.
Training, certification, and experience are the most important factors to consider when selecting an instructor or studio for Pilates training. The origin of the certification is key. Instructors who have been trained by Joseph Pilates’ original protégés will have a better understanding and a more sophisticated approach to the method than those with recent “weekend” certifications. A legitimate Pilates Certification requires hundreds of hours of education and training and very few meet our high standards.
James Harren, the founder and owner of PilatesHouston is a second generation Pilates instructor who was certified under Romana Kryzanowska. He has managed, and continues to consult with, the original Pilates studio of the Houston Ballet Academy, where their primary focus was helping injured dancers maintain their fitness and performance levels. In fact, all trainers at PilatesHouston have trained under different Master Teachers, and have multiple Pilates certifications. We feel that the variety in staff training origination adds to the client’s training experience by providing a fresh view of the work from each trainer while still maintaining the integrity of the Method.
