Brooke Siler began her Pilates training in 1994 under Joseph Pilates’ protégée Romana Kryzanowska at Drago’s Gym in New York City where she spent a decade studying under Romana’s masterful tutelage.
She opened her award-winning Manhattan studio, re:AB Pilates, in 1997 and was quickly embraced by Hollywood’s A-list from Madonna to Dustin Hoffman. “Brooke gave me the best workout I've ever had in my life!” Kirsten Dunst, Actress.
Brooke is best known for penning the New York Times’ best-seller The Pilates Body, which has become the highest grossing Pilates book of all time. She has followed it with titles: Your Ultimate Pilates Body Challenge, The Pilates Body Kit, The Women’s Health Big Book of Pilates and the Pilates Weight Loss for Beginners DVD.
Brooke has studied anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, fascial networks and cadaver dissection with teachers such as Tom Myers (Anatomy Trains), chiropractic physician Dr. Joe Muscolino (Know The Body), Leslie Kaminoff & Amy Matthews (Yoga Anatomy) and podiatrist Dr. Emily Splichal, under whom she is a certified Barefoot Training Specialist™.
After moving to the UK in 2015 for her family, Brooke still teaches independent classes, workshops, courses and conferences and sits on the advisory board of the Authentic Pilates Union, a non-profit organisation dedicated to preserving the authentic work of Joe Pilates. She has remained at the forefront of the Pilates community for more than 20 years because she remains fiercely passionate, purposeful, authentic and fun(!) in her work. ☺
