    After learning how to relieve your pain yourself, you won't miss...

    • sitting on the sidelines watching everyone else play.
    • waking up and feeling like you've been hit by a truck just because you weeded your garden yesterday.
    • wishing you felt as great now as you did a few years ago.
    • spending hours and hundreds of dollars a year in doctors' offices trying to figure out how to feel better.

    Instead, you'll be able to quickly relieve your pain by yourself.

      "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!!"

      -Jessica Friess

      "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!"

      "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."
