Custom Pilates and Yoga
Learn. Move. Feel better.
I help people use simple-yet-therapeutic exercises to permanently ditch the pain that's been holding them back from living the life of their dreams.
Hi, I'm Sarah! I'm a certified Pilates and yoga instructor with a passion for pain relief, and I recently wrote a book, Snapped: A Helpful Guide for Broken Neck Recovery, about when I recovered from my broken neck.
When I'm not working with clients, I'm researching the best ways to get rid of pain.
"After accepting my unexplained shoulder injury as a sign of aging, I started learning Pilates with Sarah. She introduced me to a 'shoulder dance' move to try to rehabilitate that shoulder and increase my range of motion. It was a success! To this day, I do not have shoulder pain, and I feel I have full range of motion with no limitation for the way I want to move.
"During the last month of my pregnancy with my first child, I developed a terrible sciatic pain where I could barely walk to the restroom without the pain bringing tears to my eyes. I was still working and knew I needed to get help. Luckily, I knew just who to contact—Sarah.
She worked with me for an hour and taught me different pain relief techniques. Within a few days, the pain was gone! If it wasn't for her, I'm not sure how I would have made it through that last month, and I may not have gone on to have another child."
"Sarah has been committed to working with me for many years now. By far the best personalized instruction I've received. She keeps me moving!"
"A five-minute conversation with Sarah and minimal effort on my part fixed the pain I was having in my foot! Podiatrists, insoles, and shots were not helping and I was really frustrated. Sarah recommended some exercises I could do to strengthen my foot, as well as simply trying to correct the way I was carrying my weight.
Within a week, I could tell a huge difference and pretty soon I was (and have remained) pain-free! Sarah’s advice fixed my foot. I have even been able to suggest it to a few other people, and it has worked for them as well! Sarah knows her stuff!!"
"Working with Sarah in her Pilates studio is a fun and inspiring way to achieve fitness. Sarah is a caring and professional instructor who tailors workouts to her clients' needs and who has a deep knowledge base."
