With Daniela Escobar and Pamela Debiase
Contrology Lab is a place for Pilates enthusiasts (both dedicated students and teachers) to put your workout under the microscope and dig deeper into your practice and understanding of the system Joe left us.
Now it’s time to talk about the neglected butt… Why is it so hard to use our seats when doing Pilates? Do I tuck? Do I clench? What’s going on back there? Join us to find out what exercises in the Pilates system will help you get your derriere strong and consequently find your lower body reach. Then apply everything you learned to your reformer or mat.
Space is limited so don't wait to book your spot!

Co-owner and teacher. A dancer since the age of five, Daniela’s passion for movement started at an early age. After performing professionally for more than two decades, Daniela began her teaching career as a dance teacher and personal trainer before being introduced to the Pilates method. Her background in dance initially attracted her to the method, but eventually, Daniela fell in love with Classical Pilates and found it to be the only form of movement and exercise that completely changed her body and made her stronger than she had ever been.
Daniela graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education and wrote her final research on the impact of the Pilates method on a person’s posture along the years of practice, using longtime instructors as subjects of her research. After completing her certification program through Power Pilates in 2006, Daniela worked for many years with her mentor, guiding apprentices through intensive Pilates trainings. In 2015, Daniela graduated from the highly selective Pilates Master’s Program, “The Work,” at Vintage Pilates under the direction of first generation Teacher Jay Grimes.
Daniela is known for her outgoing, challenging, and detail-oriented style of teaching. She has extensive experience teaching to clients of all levels and movement backgrounds, including athletes and the older adult population. She enjoys sharing her knowledge and passion for the method and is the co-founder and co-owner of Westwood Pilates.
Co-owner and teacher. Pamela practices and teaches Classical Pilates, Joseph Pilates’ original exercises with his intentions, and brings with it her own personal teaching style to create classes focused on her clients needs. She trained with Power Pilates and completed a Comprehensive Certification in 2007 to teach all levels, healthy and injured clients, on all apparatus. In 2017 she graduated from the Pilates Master's program "The Work" at Vintage Pilates under the direction of Jay Grimes (1st Generation teacher taught by Joe Pilates himself).
She was born and raised in South Africa by two musicians who encouraged her to follow her heart. She began her dance training at a young age, fell in love with it and became a professional Modern Dancer. She graduated in 1999 from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in England and has lived, performed, choreographed and taught dance on 4 different continents. The strain on her body from demanding rehearsals led her to Pilates to “put her back together again”. She trained in and taught many fitness techniques over the years but found Pilates to provide the foundation necessary for any physical endeavor you wish to achieve or simply to live a healthy life.
So she devoted her focus to this discipline. Her warm and nurturing nature along with her lifelong search to understand the body and how it moves, keep her clients coming back for years! Pamela ran her own Pilates Mat and Dance Program in the South Bay area. However, when she met Daniela Escobar who shared her same values and passions, opening up a fully equipped Pilates studio with her in West LA was a natural progression to a successful partnership.
Westwood Pilates was founded in 2013 by co-owners Daniela Escobar and Pamela Debiase in West Los Angeles.
