Biography

Ruth finished her studies in Contemporary Dance at the Superior School of Dance, the “Institut del Teatre”, in Barcelona at the age of 21. Since her early age she has been studying classical dance as well. She has danced, and given dancing lessons in different Catalan companies like “Okantomi”, “Dancetheater”, among others, and finished her career in the “Ballet Ciutat de Barcelona” under the leadership of David Campos.

Now, Ruth lives in Girona (one hour from Barcelona) where she had set up her own dance school with her partners: Dinora Valdivia, and Ana Dávila. Due to the physical requirements of her dance career she turned to Pilates Method in 2005, and got her certification in 2007 from Esperanza Aparicio and Javier Pérez Pont (Both of them with a level 2 Degrees by this organization).

In 2011 she finished her studies as a dance educator at the “Institut del Teatre”. Since achieving her certification in to 2007 she has had a regular participation in numerous conferences, workshops, seminars, and CPE'S (Continuing Education) in the US and Europe. In order to deepen her knowledge of the method, she has been practicing side by side to well-known teachers from the highest level of Romana's Pilates such as, Sari Mejia Santo, Juanita López, Cynthia Lochard, Cynthia Shipley, Anthony Rabara among others.

The teachers from Romana’s Pilates are certificated by Romana Kryzanowska, master instructor and personal protegee of H.J. Pilates, together with her daughter Sari Mejia Santo.

Studio

Our study is dedicated to teaching and promoting only the authentic Pilates method, in all its originality, as Joseph Pilates designed it.

What we do

Our work concentrates on helping our clients to achieve a redefinition of their body, and improve the quality of their movement. We base the work on correcting the alignment of the whole body, and on carrying out each of the exercises stemming from a strong core (Powerhouse) with precision. The result is an efficient movement with less effort. The body and the mind work together to achieve the highest control and balance between strength and flexibility.

We work with any public in general, with people requiring special care, and with athletes both amateurs and professionals. Our purpose is to work out the specific needs of each client while being guided by a trained instructor at every movement. The instructor chooses the best exercises for each client to get the maximum benefit.

Do you want to get a flat belly, run a marathon without injury, banish back pain, don't suffer from stiff and tied muscles, and reach a revitalizing body? Come on in and discover how a regular Pilates workout routine can tone up yours abdominals, work on your core, and help you to stretch, strengthen, breath and learn a whole lot about your body. Moving in a more intelligent way, you will be able to transform your body and mind from the inside out!
