Sarah has a passion for movement. Having been a competitive athlete, Pilates helped her overcome several injuries and fuelled her desire to further understand movement. Sarah’s enthusiastic and energetic nature can be seen in the clinic and classroom, helping others move better, studying how the nervous system controls movement and sharing this knowledge. Sarah is currently a teacher and researcher at the University of Saskatchewan, and carries a clinical load focusing on motor control in pediatrics, neurology and sport. She is a Merrithew™ Instructor Trainer specializing in STOTT PILATES Rehab. Interested in complex movement disorders, as well as injury prevention, Sarah loves Pilates for the mind body awareness it creates and the ability to use this to restore balance in the body.
