5 Tools to Master Your Health Resolutions

A rainbow colored sunburst, the logo for Custom Pilates and YogaIt’s the end of December. Have you made your New Year’s Resolutions yet? Many resolutions involve fitness or better health for the upcoming year. Let me help you meet your goals! My hope is that this website will help people cultivate personal wellness and give information and exercises to those who are do self-rehabilitation for injury.

First, let’s address the  question:  What is personal wellness?  To me, it is feeling healthy, moving without pain, getting to do the activities I want to do, wear the clothes I want to wear, feeling happy and complete. It is greeting each day with an open mind, open heart, patience and playfulness.

Next, you might be wondering who I am. Allow me to introduce myself.

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.

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, and
  • fixed my sciatica.

But my favorite and most persistent injury I have is dysfunction with the piriformis and psoas. Not sure what I’m talking about? Don’t worry, there will be blogs to explain.

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.
