Body central is dedicated to the health of each client, and provides the highest quality of instruction by certified trainers. All of our instructors have been trained by Romana and/or the teacher trainers under her direct guidance. Each instructor has successfully completed a rigorous 600 hour apprenticeship in which they have learned to modify the exercises to fit any body type, condition, and injury. All instructors are required to continue their education through professional workshops and seminars each year. Body central is proud to be one of few Pilates studios in Atlanta that offers workshops and seminars for certified instructors, and the only fully equipped Pilates studio in Buckhead. It is our mission to continue the teachings of Romana and preserve the method to it’s purest form, the way Joseph Pilates intended it.
ROBIN WARDEN BLUM
Owner Robin Warden Blum began taking Pilates to strengthen her posture and technique as a professional dancer. Robin received her dance training from North Carolina School of the Arts and East Carolina University. She has performed with Atlanta Ballet, Southern Ballet Theatre, Columbia City Ballet, and has appeared as a guest artist throughout Europe and the Eastern United States.
While dancing with Atlanta Ballet, Robin began her apprenticeship with Master Teacher Romana Kryzanowska. Under her leadership and teacher trainers Sari Pace and Juanita Lopez, Robin was certified and began teaching in 1997. She was the first person to be certified in the state of Georgia.
In 2005 Romana asked Robin to assist in the training of instructors and she was awarded the Level 4 status with Romana's Pilates®. She has helped trained many of the instructors teaching Pilates in Atlanta today.
Robin has a true passion for Pilates and is inspired by her clients and the remarkable changes it has made in their lives, and her own.
