Winsor Choza Pilates founder Saul Choza is passionate about transforming bodies through the art and science of Pilates. His twentyseven-year evolution as an instructor is the result of a desire to integrate new, complementary fitness modalities into a traditional Pilates practice. The results speak for themselves: Saul is honored to work with a loyal client roster that includes Hollywood's elite entertainers in music, fashion, film and powerhouse corporate executives who require a healthy dose of fitness to balance their busy careers. His commitment to the craft has also gained media accolades for bringing clients transformative results, including features in Vogue, Extra, Entertainment Tonight, People.com and others. 

 

At the start of his career, Saul met and began training with Mari Winsor, Hollywood's premiere pilates instructor. Thus began a two-decade relationship, with Saul taking on a role as a Winsor senior instructor and appearing in many of the famous Winsor Fitness videos that brought global attention to the Pilates movement.

 

In 2016, he opened Winsor Choza Pilates, a boutique Pilates studio in West Hollywood. Here, Saul carries on the legacy of the late great Mari Winsor, his beloved mentor, while evolving the studio's offerings to adapt to the needs of the next generation of students and teachers.

 

Saul is also a teacher's teacher who hosts two weekly workshops where trainers can re-energize their practice and deepen their understanding of Pilates. He travels worldwide, presenting at Pilates conferences and private studio workshops throughout the Americas and Europe.
