I began practicing Yoga and Pilates in 2008 after having undergone a failed back surgery. After trying every prescription, Chiropractor, therapist, audiobook, Reiki master, inversion table salesman, my physical therapist suggested that I try Yoga. I initially laughed at the thought; envisioning candles and meditation and chanting and women in spandex sitting criss cross apple sauce.. But I was still in excruciating pain, feeling quite desperate, and saw a Yoga studio one day out driving. (I had given up motorcycling, the pain was too bad)
I gave the guy at the desk $20 for 2 weeks of Yoga classes , and he said come back tomorrow for your first class.
Turns out it was a Hot Yoga. I didn't know that going in.. I wore sweatpants and a long sleeve shirt to my first class. It was 90 minutes in approximately one million degrees with a relative humidity of insanity. You can imaging how that went.
I’m frugal so I came again the next day. And everyday for the 2 weeks. And ultimately I came everyday for the next 60 days in a row because I felt so amazing. I couldn't even believe it. The struggle was worth it.. I had such profound healing benefits from the Yoga postures practiced in that environment, it quickly became a part of my daily routine. But I had no idea what this yoga would give me in the long run.
You see, I was born with Crohn’s Disease. It's been there my whole life. They say there’s no cure. It’s a torturous thing, and those affected by it oftentimes suffer in silence. Nobody likes to talk about digestive problems.
For the first 34 years of my life I couldn’t eat most fruits or vegetables. No nuts, grains, coffee, red meat, wheat, dairy. I was in and out of the hospital and had to constantly juggle medications and their various side effects. It’s not like that anymore. You see, a while back now, I became completely symptom free. Diet independent. I can eat whatever I’d like. No meds. No docs. I can have spinach and peanut butter and apples for the first time in my life.
With Yoga, Pilates, and all the things learned through disciplined practice, I was able to take my power back. To Rebel against the stress, anxiety, pain, and depression and reclaim my health. I have my life back. It wasn’t easy. Or fast. But it's doable.
I became a teacher in 2012, and ultimately a studio owner in 2015, to learn everything that I could about these transformative practices from the best teachers and mentors in the world, and share what I find with everyone.
Sarah started practicing Hot Pilates In March of 2020. After coming to only 4 classes, the studio was closed because of covid. The studio transitioned to livestream classes, and so did she! She practiced pilates from home for six months, and when the studio reopened, she came back as quick as she could.
With a background in fitness, she knew Rebel Hot Pilates would be a great addition to her current workout routine. In the fall of 2020. Sarah completed the Rebel Hot Pilates teacher. She has been a teacher on staff ever since. (more often than not, crushing it with the 6:30 AM crew).
