Cecilia Sicangco Ibarrola was a former principal dancer of Ballet Philippines, became the Philippines’s first certified Pilates teacher in 1995. She feels fortunate to have done her apprenticeship in New York under the close guidance of Romana Kryzanowska, observing how she taught and worked with different bodies, therefore, directly learning from her. Since then, she annually attends continuing professional education seminars and conferences with what is now known as Romana’s Pilates™. With her highest respect for the system as developed by Joseph Pilates, she is honored to be part of the preservation of the practice, imparting her knowledge of the body to better help her clients.
