Sarah Stockett

My name is Sarah Stockett, and I’m STOTT certified in Matwork; Reformer; Cadillac, Chair, and Barrels; Injuries & Special Populations; and CORE. I also am a RYT 200 with Yoga Alliance, and I have studied Active Isolated Stretching.

My Personal Recoveries

Although my educational background is important, I think my injuries and the challenges I’ve faced are what set me apart as an instructor. I have:

  • had two c-sections,
  • progressed in fixing diastasis rectus abdominis,
  • lived with pubis symphysis dysfunction (while pregnant),
  • stabilized an unstable pubis (after pregnancy),
  • lived with an umbilical hernia,
  • rehabilitated an umbilical hernia repair,
  • fixed my plantar fasciitis,
  • healed and rehabilitated a broken neck, and
  • fixed my sciatica.

But my favorite and most persistent injury I have is dysfunction with the piriformis and psoas. Despite my best efforts, these two muscles periodically get cranky and cause me problems. Because of this, I tend to try to teach and incorporate exercises that keep these two problem muscles balanced and healthy.

My Work with Clients

Since 2002, I have worked as a Pilates instructor, personal trainer, and yoga instructor. I have worked with clients who have had issues including:

  • rheumatoid arthritis,
  • sciatica,
  • diastasis rectus abdominis,
  • pregnancy,
  • knee replacement,
  • spinal fusion,
  • cervical vertebrae surgery,
  • low back pain,
  • bulging discs,
  • wrist surgeries,
  • foot surgeries,
  • bunions,
  • fused toes,
  • neck tension,
  • headaches,
  • hernia repair,
  • psoas disfunction, and
  • piriformis disfunction.

My passion is for helping people recover from injury and feel good while moving.
