One-on-one virtual Pilates Mat
or GYROKINESIS® Session
Exercise in the privacy of your home without any equipment!
Both methods help bring your body into balance. Do Pilates for stability and core strength, and GYROKINESIS® for opening up the joints and increasing range of motion. Both methods are challenging but gentle on the joints, and the session will be just for you! I'll customize a work-out based on your needs each time. You'll need a mat or comfy carpet, a stool or chair, and clothing you can move in. Bring any props you have but none are necessary. I offer both 30 minute and 55 minute one-on-one sessions, and all are done through Zoom.
Virtual / In-person Group Pilates, GYROKINESIS®, and Barre Classes
Exercise from the comfort of your own home through ZOOM or in-person at Sarah's studio or around Portland at several other locations.
Pilates mat class will take you through a series of exercises to strengthen and stretch your whole body! I always provide modifications and alternative ways of doing each exercise to accommodate each student in class.
For the Pilates classes with small props, you will need just that - usually a small ball, some light weights, and possibly a stretch band for alternative resistance work.
Pilates Fusion is a mat class with influences from other methods of exercise, like yoga, dance, and GYROKINESIS ®.
In the GYROKINESIS ® class, you will need a mat, and a small stool/chair for the seated work. Expect to move your whole body in a rhythmic, but gentle manner to help stimulate the nervous system and unblock stagnation. It is a truly invigorating way to move and strengthen multiple systems in the body.
Barre fusion is a half/half mix of standing / toning work, and Pilates mat work. You’ll need something to hold onto for some of the standing work, like a chair or countertop, and occasionally we use light weights for the arms. Just like my other classes, the whole body is addressed to bring strength, stability, balance, and flexibility to your body.

Pilates Equipment Session

Unlock all that tension using your own GYROTONIC® equipment. I am currently certified in the GYROTONIC® Pulley Tower, the GYROTONER®, and the Jumping Stretching Board.
