Mari Winsor’s Bio
In 1990, Mari opened her first Pilates studio in Los Angeles, and introduced her innovative signature workout, “dynamic sequencing,” based on techniques developed by Joseph Pilates. Soon after, the highly visible bodies of musicians, professional athletes, and celebrities began to flock to her studio to be shaped, toned, and strengthened.
Eager to learn as much as she possible could about Pilates, in 1992, Mari began studying with Romana Kryzanowska, who trained with Joseph Pilates and took over his New York studio upon his death. After one year of intense study, Mari earned her certification in the true technique of Joseph Pilates. Mari continues to study with Romana to this day.
In 2003, Mari brought Pilates to a new level of public recognition when she released her first infomercial. The record-breaking success of the Winsor Pilates workout series and award-winning infomercials was unparalleled. Thirty videos later and over 50 million programs sold, Mari’s groundbreaking dynamic workouts have helped millions of Americans get the body they want making Winsor Pilates a household name.
Committed to sharing her knowledge and experience with the public, Mari has created an Online Winsor Pilates Fitness Club. She has co-authored three books: The Pilates Powerhouse; The Pilates Pregnancy: Maintaining Strength, Flexibility and Your Figure; and The Pilates Workout Journal: An Exercise Diary and Conditioning Guide. Mari’s fitness expertise has been featured in countless magazines such as: Allure, Glamour, Fit Pregnancy, Health, InStyle, More, Redbook, Shape, Vogue, W, and Woman’s World.
Now the owner of two Winsor Pilates studios and with a continuous roster of A-list clients that includes Drew Barrymore, Elizabeth Berkeley, Minnie Driver, Daisy Fuentes, Jasmine Guy, Jewel, Melanie Griffith, Meg Ryan, Sharon Stone, Marisa Tomei, Courtney Thorne-Smith and Dita Von Tees, Mari remains the most sought-after trainer in Hollywood and a celebrity in the world of health and fitness.

WHY ATTEND: Come attend this new and exciting Your Art of Contrology Workshop and/or Sessions taught by Mari Winsor. An overview of the Your Art of Contrology Workshop is below:
“It is a huge responsibility to take on the needs of a client’s body. They may want smaller thighs, a tinier waistline, and lifted buttocks, but we as Instructors of this fabulous Pilates exercise may see it differently. Miley Cyrus, when she came to see me, wanted all those cosmetic benefits Pilates is so famous for — I wanted to change her posture and strengthen her body. We are both getting what we want and she realizes how important posture, strength, balance, and flexibility are in the mix. It is a process though and that is where your art comes in. Teaching someone to control their body is not easy and no it is not just “built in” to the work. Both you and your client have to work together for it. If a client has trouble focusing you spend time bringing them back to simplicity. For me, the concept of resistance and counter-resistance from the powerhouse in every exercise we teach is most important. There is a common thread connecting all the exercises. Proper cuing tools are important to guide your clients in the right direction. How you touch someone or not can make a difference. We will be working together to gain a different and fresh perspective in lengthening the body in all directions from the powerhouse helping you and your clients connect body, mind, and spirit.” —Mari Winsor
