Sarah Gould

Pilates Instructor

 

‘My passion is helping clients to move their bodies correctly and efficiently for less pain, more mobility, and optimal overall health.’

As a dancer since age 4 and a kinesthetic learner, Sarah has studied the body for more than 25 years. She teaches Pilates with creativity and curiosity, and enjoys challenging her students to engage their minds and bodies in new, fresh ways. In 2011, Sarah certified through Integrated Teacher Training (ITT) at A Body of Work in San Francisco. The comprehensive 500+hr. training and year-long apprenticeship under Master Trainer Jean Sullivan thoroughly prepared her for working with clients of all backgrounds, pain-levels, mobility and fitness goals. An anatomy-enthusiast too, Sarah aims to deepen clients’ understanding of their own anatomy through verbal description, demonstration, physical movement and tactile cueing.

With a BA in Dance Performance and Choreography  from San Francisco State University she danced professionally with modern/contemporary companies while pursuing her Pilates education. In 2013, Sarah lived in Kigali, Rwanda for 6 months teaching Dance and Pilates before ultimately moving to Davis. Sarah continues to dance with Linda Bair Dance Company in Davis and her own company: Off Kilter Dance. In 2017, she certified in yoga, to deepen her practice and understanding of other movement modalities.
