Sarah Frahm

My movement history includes 20+years of dance training and performance, aerobics instruction and competition. The culmination has been study and certification through Turning Point Studio as a Pilates Instructor.

Pilates has produced strength and balance in my body like no other form of conditioning. With a passion for movement and a dose of creativity, it is my desire to impart that experience to others.

Areas of continued study include human anatomy and movement, Franklin Method, Body Rolling and release work and, most recently, Gyrotonic/Gyrokinesis.
