MAED, Certified STOTT Pilates Instructor
Originally from Seattle, Sarah started Pilates in her early 20’s after a number of ankle & knee injuries put her out of commission. She fell in love with the contemporary STOTT method and embarked upon her certification as a Pilates instructor in 2013. She is a level 2 fully certified STOTT Pilates Instructor and has completed additional training on athletic conditioning, TRX, Barre, and recovery/restoration methods such as Trigger Point foam rolling. She enjoys teaching group classes as well as private sessions, oftentimes with a focus on rehab. Her background is in the mental health world, and she holds her MAEd in Mental Health Counseling as well as an Advanced Graduate Certificate in Trauma & Disaster Mental Health through SUNY New Paltz. She hopes to complete a certification on Trauma Informed Weightlifting in 2024 to blend her two worlds. Sarah loves being active, especially at the gym and on the tennis courts, and appreciates the way Pilates can help get her back doing the things she loves to do after an injury (or prevent them from happening in the first place!). You might see Sarah out walking her dog or enjoying Beacon with her husband on the weekends.
THE PILATES METHOD
Understand how Pilates benefits YOU
The Pilates Method is an intelligent exercise program that strengthens & tones the muscles, improves balance & stability and increases flexibility & mobility. Pilates focuses not just on the core muscles, but how to move from your core so your body works together as a unit to support the spine. Pilates has been proven to eliminate back pain, rehabilitate from injury or surgery, counter stress or anxiety and improve physical wellbeing and overall health.
