I’m excited to be heading back to my old town, Miami, later this month. The best part is that I’m going there to teach at not one, but TWO, conferences. So whether you’re a lover of Spinning or Pilates, I’ve got you covered! Join me from May 28th-31st for the Pilates Empowerment Summit, followed by WSSC (World Spinning and Sports Conditioning Conference) in sunny Miami!

Yes, that’s right. Pilates Style magazine just released my second cover with them! And what fun it was to shoot. (Never a dull moment at a Pilates Style photo shoot, that’s for sure!) Don’t believe me? Pick up your copy and read Editor Bambi Abernathy’s story about how the Police came searching for me, in the middle of my hair and makeup session! In hindsight it’s funny, but not so much then.


Grab your copy at a newsstand near you!

“Pay It Forward” for Mari Winsor

Submitted by on December 29, 2014 - 7:08 pm

Most of you are familiar with my dear friend Mari Winsor, or at the least “Winsor Pilates”.  I can honestly say that Mari Winsor is the reason that Pilates is a household name. Thanks to her efforts, and tremendous success, on QVC (direct response television) I no longer have to explain to people what Pilates is.

What you may not know is that this spunky and vibrant soul was recently diagnosed with ALS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease). ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.  This degeneration of the nerve cells can eventually lead to loss of muscle control and paralysis.

As you can imagine, Mari is loved by Pilates instructors and enthusiasts around the globe. That’s why on Friday, January 16th some of the nations top Pilates instructors are joining me in Los Angeles in a benefit for Mari Winsor. I’m excited to be spending the day raising money, and awareness, to benefit our dear friend. Some of the amazing instructors joining me are: Jay Grimes, Brooke Siler, Jennifer Kries, Chris Robinson, Moses Urbano, Kathy Ross-Nash, Michael Levy, and more…!!!

Please join us for this important event. If you don’t live in Southern California but have friends here, please spread the word, or offer a donation. (Stay tuned for link to do so).


Please use these links to register for mat classes, private Pilates sessions with my friends and ME, or join us for the cocktail reception. (Stay tuned for link to contribute to the event!)

U Got It!

Submitted by on August 7, 2014 - 1:19 pm

I just love the Ugi ball, which stands for U Got It! It’s like a medicine ball, but even better, especially because of its “squish-factor”. Check it out, in action, here! And if you want to TRY it out, you can join Mari Winsor and me for a FREE Ugi class at Mari’s West Hollywood Studio. Get all the details here!
