Sara Dao discovered her passion for Pilates while rehabilitating a knee injury. Through Pilates, she watched her body transform - growing stronger, improving her posture, reducing her stress, and most importantly finding relief from chronic pain. She understands first hand how Pilates and the knowledge of correct biomechanics can change a person's life.
Sara's love of health and wellness led her to leave an established career in non-profit fundraising and pursue a new path to become a full time Pilates instructor. She chose STOTT PILATES® because of it's anatomical and research-based approach, which applies modern exercise principles to the original work of Joseph Pilates.
Sara is a fully certified STOTT PILATES® instructor. She is Level 2 Advanced trained in Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, and Barrels. She has had additional education in Injuries and Special Populations enabling her to work with all types of clients from pre- and post-natal and older populations to joint replacements, cancer rehabilitations, and spinal injuries.
Sara is passionate about Pilates and her goal to help clients feel better inside and out.
