✨Happy Heavenly Birthday to a legend.✨
She lives within our hearts, and there is not a day that passes without referencing her. I feel incredibly blessed for having the honor to be in her presence.
I was so young and shy, I remember after a lesson or a workshop she would give me “that look” and say “what did you learn today? You only need one thing, but learn it well.”
I live by those words.
Thank you, Romana 💙

Happy Heavenly Birthday, Mari.
For those of you who don’t know who Mari Winsor was, she was a trailblazer who manifested incredible things.
She never took no for an answer, and she always pushed the envelope.
She is the woman who made Pilates a household name.
Nothing was impossible for her, and when something didn’t work out, she moved on to the next thing without hesitation.
She was a dreamer, a fashion lover, and an all around bad ass.
She was an inspiration to many, and continues to inspire. 💙

March MATness Day 4: The One Leg Circle:
This year for MM the Winsor Choza crew cleared out most our reformers and broke out our mats to move through Joe’s 34 original mat exercises together. We had the best time! We played with rhythm and added a few extra movements. The goal was to maintain a flow, and we wanted our pics to capture our movement.
Thanks @benjamindegenhardt for bringing our community together, you’re the best 🙏🏼💙
March MATness Day 3: The Roll Over
Real talk. Is anyone else struggling a bit with the daily MM posts this year? There is so much going on in the world, and we don’t want to come across as tone-deaf to the plight of others who are suffering.
Sending love and light to everyone. ☮️
March MATness Day 2: The Roll Up
The past two years have been challenging for everyone, to say the least. We’ve all been through so much that it’s going to take time for us to bounce back to where we were pre pandemic, if that’s even possible.
I lost my crew when we were shut down, but I’m happy that things are working out, and now we have a team of like minded instructors who share a mutual love for Joe and Pilates.
We had such a great time shooting these pics. It was the first time in a while that things felt a little “normal.” - Saul 💙

March MATness Day 1: The Hundred
I believe Pilates is currently in a state of metamorphosis. Many instructors are deeply exploring the work and truly owning their craft. What’s exciting for me here at my studio, is that I can say this about my team of instructors. What I’ve observed with traditional Pilates, especially second generation instructors, is that many are honoring the legacy of JP, and their first generation mentors, as well as researching current literature to assist in understanding what Pilates is.
Mari Winsor used to say “PIlates is life,” and she was spot on. Pilates supports our everyday life because it reflects our current existence. It reconnects us to what’s important, being fully present.
I think this is why Pilates is more relevant than ever. - 💙 Saul
❤️🔥HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY❤️🔥
How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you.
This is me after realizing March Is only eighteen days away. 😬
@uinfootwear does it again! I just received another pair of their shoes and I absolutely love them! The ergonomic shoe design fits perfectly to your foot shape, and their bold and artistic patterns are my “go to” for fun in the sun footwear.
After all, it’s always summer somewhere in the world! ☀️🌎

Another great Core Continuum! These classes have evolved into weekly workshops, and it’s so rewarding to be practicing what we love with the people we love. 💙
The Gratz Neck Stretcher, Sand Bag and Breathicizer are the Apparatus of the Month.
Here’s a from just a couple years ago when @chenson7 … I mean Dracula, used the Bean Bag Roll Up Device to help him strengthen his hands, wrists, and forearms, which helps for those times he needs to take sudden flight. 🦇🎃👻
OK at this point I have a Pilates Studio/ Doggy Day Care 🤷🏻♂️
If you like Goat Yoga, then you’ll love Pup Pilates!
Core Continuum with @saulchoza is back! Thursday’s at 3:30pm PST
This past week we worked on defining the primary curvature (C curve) and secondary curvature (lumbar and cervical spine,) and how important they are in a beginners reformer workout.
This week we’re addressing how our limbs can affect these curvatures, and what beginning exercises can we do to balance the connection of the limbs to the body, in order to develop healthy curvatures.
LA peeps - it’s been a while, but Core Continuum is back!
My class for teachers will be held on Thursday’s at 3:30pm PST
The cost is $50, DM to sign up or call (323) 691-5636
Hope to see you there!
P.S - this clip is from January 2020, before the 💩 hit the fan.
Masks are required in our studio 😷
Ok, so this video isn’t a throwback, but this exercise is!
Back in the 90’s, when I was working at Mari Winsor’s studio on La Cienega in West Hollywood, (before I was certified by Romana,) we had some very….. creative exercises that we taught our clients. This one was called “Mofo’s,” because they were harder than a…. you get it.
After @chenson7 recorded me doing this, he said “fancy, but isn’t this really just an abdominal exercise?” 🤔
Actually yes, it is an ab exercise, we just liked having fun with choreography! 🕺🏻
There were also a few other creative exercises in our repertoire, “Baby Sucks his Thumb,” “Clams,” and “Skaters” come to mind.
Good times, we were so young. Missing Mari today. 💙
Repost from @pilatesanytimeus
As we all know, these exercises can be intimidating, however, Saul thinks that with the proper movement development, and a little creativity, students can find pleasure and inspiration in this style of movement. The benefits are endless so let's practice!

See ya 🔵😉
This basic short box exercise is a go to for me when I want to articulate the vertebrae and wake up my spine, while strengthening my powerhouse of course. 💯
Happy Saturday, loves! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? We’ll be hitting the beach at some point. 🏖
When life imitates art.
When you’re not on your game, but the lighting is good ✨✨✨
Seriously though, taking even 30 minutes out of your day for yourself can be a game changer.
Hope you’re having a great week, loves! 💙💙
⚠️ This is harder than it appears. 😅
Bracing the shoulder blade to the front of the body on the Gratz Small Chair, which also happens to be their Apparatus of the Month. 🙌🏽
This exercise is essential to connecting your arm to your core.
Oh, and yes, I am talking to myself through this. 🤣
Feeling inspired by all the athletes from around the 🌎 today. I’m completely in awe of their dedication and athleticism.
Balance Control ➡️ Roll Off 💯
Is a thing?
I had such a great weekend, I don’t want it to end, so I’m keeping my weekend mindset. What did you do this past weekend? What do you do to keep a weekend mindset?
Have a great workweek, loves! 💙
Today’s mood. I can’t stop smiling. 😅
@uinfootwear is officially my shoe choice for summer! These super comfortable, lightweight shoes are perfect for me, whether I’m in my studio teaching Pilates, or on a summer getaway. I love their “Oh My Gaudí” design, they give me serious Barcelona vibes. ☀️

to last Saturday when I went with @mayosonje 🏊♀️😅
I learned so many helpful tips from Sonjé, it’s been a really fun workweek incorporating some of them with my clients here in Los Angeles. 🙌🏽
This past weekend while I was in Nashville, I had the honor of taking a lesson with @mayosonje .
Sonjé is a beautiful artist with a refined eye for biomechanics. She was able to see my weaknesses right away. I learned so much in that hour.
I’m looking forward to my next session with her, it was absolutely incredible. This was truly a master class. 💯
More Pilates fun with Lynsey at @absolutepilatesbrentwood .
I’m feeling yesterday’s session in all the right places. 😅
Looking forward to my session today with @mayosonje 💯
One of my favorite things about traveling is being able to meet and take lessons from social media friends, like Lynsey, owner of @absolutepilatesbrentwood ! She has a beautiful Gratz studio, and I really enjoyed my session. 💯
If you’re ever in the Nashville area, I can’t recommend Lynsey and her team enough.
