SEE YOU IN PARADISE!
Hip Joints-The Other Powerhouses (Saul Choza) In this workshop, students will learn that hip joints not only serve as base joints for the attachment of the lower extremities, but they are also basilar joints for the pelvis, which is the foundation for the spine. A well-balanced hip-joint hosts a neutral pelvis, which is a vital structure for a healthy spine. We will discuss: over developed gluteus, hip-flexors, and hamstrings, and the effects on the spine. Students will also learn the proper muscle activation for the “wrap”, and why the cue to “squeeze the butt” does not allow freedom of the pelvis which is very important in many of the Pilates exercises. $50
The 8 Elements of a traditional ending (Norma Jean Kelly) In this workshop we will explore the eight elements of a traditional ending and how they relate to the Pilates method. Incorporating these elements into your session endings will help your clients improve their technique and make them more mindful of their body outside of the studio. Learn how to create fun effective, traditional endings for your clients at all levels. Set your clients up for success and help them improve the quality of their lives. $35
Disabled former Paratrooper finds new life with the science of Pilates (Norma Jean Kelly) Jim (Boomer) Kelly has severe lower extremity injuries, which limits his Pilates workout to the Arm Chair (Baby Chair). Together we created a challenging workout, that avoided aggravating his injuries, and allowed him to build muscle in his legs without him moving them. Observe and join, Jim in doing the workout that fundamentally changed his life. $20
The Bathroom Exercises (Christi Allen Franchini) Joseph Pilates had a bathroom routine which was series of exercises he did with the eyes, the face, towel stretches, dry brushing and even washing and drying the body! These are powerful, useful tools that you can teach your clients so they can continue to work their powerhouses, strengthen their eye sight, flush their lymphatic system, and challenge their balance…all within the confines of their bathroom! $40 (includes dry brush and towel)
Teach the body in front of you (Liisa Johannsson) Two attendees will be used for a total of 45 minutes each. Liisa will teach the body in front of her while other attendees watch, interact and learn. $30
Shoulder Joints-The Other Powerhouses (Saul Choza) In this workhsop, participants will learn the importance of mobility of the scapula, as well as exercises that help stretch and strengthen muscles in the shoulder complex. The cue, “shoulders down”, creates too much simplicity of the complex workings of the shoulder joint. One will learn how to look at this structure as a three-dimensional object. Students will discover that when creating a balanced muscle structure in the joint, especially in exercises with point of contact in the hands, will facilitate the connection of your “powerhouse”. $50

Saul’s career in Pilates began accidentally. A struggling dancer in search of improving his classical technique, 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 numerous Winsor fitness videos. In 2016, their longstanding friendship resulted in Saul taking over the business with the launch of Winsor Choza, a boutique Pilates environment in Hollywood.
A teacher’s teacher, Saul hosts a weekly workshop where trainers can reenergize their practice and deepen their understanding of Pilates. His personal development as a trainer includes certification by Romana Kryzanowska and workshops from top Pilates instructors such as Sari Mejia, Kathy Grant, Lolita San Miguel, Jay Grimes, Maria Jose’ Blom, Cynthia Lochard, Brooke Siler, Kathy Ross Nash and more.
