She loves her family (Bill! – his students and sailing crew love him, but she loves him MORE!) and their dog. She will swim, garden, sail, walk, cook, feed the birds, visit with friends and family. She enjoys and shares the Gonna Feel Good of life in any way she can.
Outside of the studio I am the mom of three girls and three rescue dogs, so you’ll often find me watching kid’s sporting events or walking in the woods.
I hope you’ll join me as we move through creative, challenging and energetic asanas; building strength and balance together. Namaste

Though Sara is playful and light-hearted in her approach to teaching, she appreciates the ambitions of some students to evolve in their physical practice, and will teach to this end where appropriate while offering options to all. In her classes, you will be given space to move away from the turbulences and cyclical thinking of the mind, and allow the body to become the pilot. Being that Sara is fascinated with the yogic ideals of working through resistance juxtaposed with acceptance and surrender, you are sure to experience both within her classes and thus be empowered to do the same off the mat
After taking my first Pilates class I was amazed! It was so fun and made me feel strong! When my second child started school I enrolled in Pilates teacher training with Peak Pilates. It was a 6-month training where I was certified in 2010 to teach Mat and Reformer classes. In 2011/12 I was certified by Power Pilates to teach beginner, intermediate and advanced Mat Pilates.
I then discovered BarSculpt. BarSculpt is called “Pilates evolved” and that’s exactly how it felt. In 2012 I was certified to teach BarSculpt level 1 and 2 and in 2013 level 3. I wanted to expand on barre and was trained in bootybarre and certified in 2015. I love the way bootybarre compliments BarSculpt and Pilates.
Pilates and barre have changed my life. I have such passion for how good it makes me feel. I love to teach others and share the fun, strength and possibilities. It’s amazing to see people realize their own abilities.
Justine combines her love of movement with her knowledge of the body in classes that include a hearty dose of joy and playfulness, inviting students to strengthen both their body and mind.
Her primary intention as a teacher (and human) is to offer a space where folks can learn to develop a deeper sense of self-trust, discernment, body acceptance, and self compassion in an effort to not only uplift themselves, but the greater community as well.
Emily’s personal values greatly influence how she teaches. Both personally and professionally, Emily challenges toxic narratives that can pervade some wellness spaces including diet culture, ableism, classism, and spiritual bypassing. This, she believes, is an important way to honor yoga’s radical roots which encourage more than just individual self-optimization. She feels strongly that individual liberation is directly tied to collective liberation. Yoga—in the comprehensive sense of the word—is a rich practice that allows us to explore this concept of unity and put it into action.
Sara takes an embodied approach to practice, integrating structural anatomy, creative exploration and self-inquiry into traditional yoga asana. Informed by her work as a therapist, she aspires to create a safe and compassionate space that allows you to experience greater self-awareness, acceptance and joy. Her playful yet structured practices will allow you an opportunity to be curious and light-hearted while also meeting your edge. A lifelong lover of movement, Sara will inspire you to envision your practice from a fresh perspective.
Sara is also a forever student of the practice, so you’ll probably see her alongside you in the studio. When she’s not practicing yoga, she’s likely exploring the natural beauty of Vermont on foot, by bike or in a kayak.
