In 2012, Sarah received her full, comprehensive certification in Pilates through Balanced Body University after being a student herself for years and seeing and feeling the positive changes it brought to her life. She considers Pilates a mind-body discipline, and her approach to teaching is very influenced by her love of dance and movement. Her teaching style attempts to be as close to the teachings of Joseph Pilates as possible, something she realized early on her training that she felt passionate about. She believes the order in which he laid out the exercises should be honored and practiced, but will stray and add variations of her own, depending on her clients individual needs. She maintains a philosophy that highlights working with clients as individuals and instructs from a platform that emphasizes education in conjunction with dynamic movement. Sarah describes her teaching style to be classical and classical Pilates is essentially Pilates in the truest most authentic form, as Joseph Pilates intended.
Over the past 10 years as an instructor, Sarah continues to find Pilates to be one of the most therapeutic, healing, important exercise forms. She enjoys being able to tailor exercises to individuals needs and finds such joy in helping people achieve their goals. She’s recently become especially interested in helping women postpartum (after having two children of her own and realizing the changes that occur within the body) and how Pilates aids in re-building core muscle groups and aids in de-stressing with breathing exercises for new or expecting mama’s!
Sarah holds certifications from the Pilates Method Alliance, Balanced Body University and, most recently, BootyBarre. Although recognized as a trainer in her industry, Sarah still considers herself a student and is always continuing to hone her craft.
