“Gratz’s meticulously crafted gear is, quite frankly, the best, and more than meets our high standards- especially when it’s upholstered in the beautiful Capri blue."

THE PEOPLE - Jeneal Rohrback (owner) and Eva Tu
Jeneal Rohrback Romana's Pilates Instructor, 8 years’ experience:
Jeneal grew up surrounded by a very Californian and athletic family. This gave her an inbuilt passion for anything to do with fitness and wellness, and she's tried it all, from being a serious gym bunny to extreme cross fit.
But when she discovered Romana's Pilates, she knew she'd found her calling.
She keeps a finger in competitive sport by playing inter club tennis and Pilates has helped her execute those killer shots.
As well as Frank Pilates, Jeneal runs an recruitment business and teaches a post grad creative advertising course. These experiences give her the people and teaching skills needed to help others learn the wonderful gift handed down from Joseph Pilates.
Franker fact: Jeneal loves secondhand shopping, 'Forensic Files', and pimping out other people's homes.
Ying Jie Ow- Romana's Pilates Instructor, 9 years’ experience:
Originally from Malaysia, Ying Jie discovered Pilates in her late teens while she was swimming competitively.
In 2009, she moved to Singapore where she continued her Pilates practice, and signed up to a Pilates course with Pilates Bodyworks. In conjunction with her Pilates, she worked at Underwater World Singapore as a Marine Mammal Trainer and Educator.
Fast forward to 2013, with the some Pilates creds under her belt, Ying Jie moved to Auckland, taught Pilates and then realised that transitioning into the renowned Romana's Pilates Instructor’s course would bring her to the next level.
Ying Jie keeps fit with her home studio and looking after three young children- Kol Loki and Rayla.
Franker fact: Ying Jie has trained Pink Dolphins, South American fur seals and Asian short-clawed otters, and she was a carer for one very special dugong name Gracie, so training Pilates clients is a piece of cake.
Eva Tu: Romana's Pilates Instructor, 1 year experience:
Originally from China, Eva started her Pilates journey in New Zealand, but already had a very good understanding of the body from her years of teaching Yoga at Supermonkey Fitness in China.
Her passion for Pilates grew even more when she signed up for Romana's Authentic Pilates Instructor's Training Programme.
After many hours of training, Eva enjoys using her knowledge of movement to help people find a healthy balance- physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Franker fact: Before Eva found her fortune in helping people, she worked for R.R.Donnelley an American Fortune 500 communications company. Eva not only has an exceptional eye when it comes to Pilates, but photography too. Check out her creativity on her Insta page.
