I want you to
being and moving in your body. I will help you reach your goals whether that be to get stronger, more flexible, toned or to get out of pain. I want your body to exude confidence through it’s shape, posture and motion.


It all starts with Posture

How you carry yourself in the world says a lot about you. Your posture can affect your mindset, how you feel about yourself, how you interact with the world, project confidence or lack thereof. Your posture also contributes to chronic pain, lack of mobility, and that ache in your neck or back. It is created by how your muscles, fascia and other soft tissue are holding your bones and is the foundation upon which we move. If our foundation is askew than any exercise we do will reinforce that foundation. That is why I only work with one client at a time. Focusing on just your foundation. Creating exercises for your imbalances. Reshaping your body on a solid foundation. Change your posture, change your life.


step 1

RELEASE muscle patterns in your body that create tension, misalignment, pain and prevent you from getting the best possible results of your workout. This unraveling is done through myo-fascial release

step 2

REALIGN your body and reprogram your nervous system to optimize how your muscles interact with the bones to create posture and movement. This is done through a fascinating education on how the body is meant to move and through mindful practice.

step 3

REPATTERN your muscles by working them out in the correct alignment and connection. Strengthening your body in it’s new way of being.

The buzz

"The most noticeable and significant results Sarah brought to my body using her swift and targeted approach are my visibly relaxed shoulders, elongated neck and newly uncramped happy toes and feet. Decades of stress, my daily wear of high heels and consistent running and hiking uphill, (absent of proper stretching and posture), had left my shoulders in a permanent state of tension hunched up and hiding my neck. My toes and feet were predictably cramping in the evenings when I removed my shoes. Today, Sarah and I routinely marvel at my astounding physical change. I have incorporated her techniques into my daily life. Sarah's unique ability to pinpoint and address critical areas for improvement will lead to your overall wellness and empowerment!"


"I have never enjoyed working out in my life until I started taking classes at Beyond Your Core, now known as The Body 6 Lab LA. Sarah is the most amazing trainer I've worked with. She literally works every muscle in your body, while making it an incredibly fun experience. I know every person's physique is different, but I started to notice remarkable results within the first month. Most trainers do not have the Power Plate....Using this modern machine, combined with pilates is the ultimate workout. I highly recommend you pick up the phone and make an appointment. It totally changed my life!"

Shanng K. | Costume Designer, Age 49

"Sarah is beyond cooll My muffin top has disappeared thanks to Sarah's brilliant training. She has helped me with hip and back issues as well, while strengthening my core. I even got rid of the cellulite on my thighs by having her train me on the power plates I went from muffins to six pack and beyond!"

Mary I. | a Emmy Winning Costume Designer, Age 44

"I went to Sarah in agony from sciatica that was really affecting my life. Within an hour she had opened my hips and back up to a point where the pain was 90% gone and stayed gone until my next session a week later. Going deeper the second session, activating all those muscles that didn't know how to fire and relax the muscles that over do it day in day out. Her website doesn't do her work justice. Best physical therapy session I have ever had and I've been going to different people all over the planet."

Anthony W. | Actor, Age 44

"I continue to be amazed at the drastic changes Sarah can bring to my posture in an hour of body work. A career spent hunched over a computer's keyboard and tapping on a mobile phone has caused a lot of tension in my neck, shoulders, and chest. Sarah has helped to reduce neck pain, add mobility to my shoulders, and open my chest...all of which have helped improve my posture. Her clear, descriptive, and encouraging instructions make the time spent with her rewarding and rejuvenating.

Adam A. | College Administrator, Age 37

"I've seen Sarah for back pain, and weak core muscles that are adding to structural pain. She is excellent and knows the body really well, including the bones, muscles, and movement patterns. We met in Shiatsu Massage School, and since then I've become a client, I see that she is hungry for knowledge, and is well trained in several modalities, including Pilates, massage, and myo-fascial release to name a few. When I work with her, I have fun, and feel that I am effectively able to tap into areas of my body that need to strengthen. She has helped me develop muscles I wasn't even aware existed. Also, she makes the sessions fun and is very encouraging and lighthearted. I recommend checking her out. Also- good rates for everything offered! She's the real deal."

Katherine K. | Reiki Master and Masseuse, Age 37

"Sarah has made me think in a different way about exercise and my body. I am now conscious of my posture and movement in my daily life. She does not just teach a form of exercise, mindlessly counting reps, she teaches you a new way of being in your body. Educating you about your muscles and bones and how they should interact and move your body and how the breath helps to facilitate this process. It is fascinating. My mind and body are completely engaged during our session. Whenever I come in with an ache or pain I always leave with it relieved. I consistently work up a sweat and I am so much stronger."

Jessica K. | Student, Age 22

"Sarah is phenomenally gifted and will completely CHANGE your body, by reshaping, strengthening and correcting posture. I have tried everything under the sun... yoga classes, weightlifting, cardio, martial arts, boxing, spinning, you name it... absolutely nothing compares to spending an hour with her. Sarah has established her own unique way of getting true results by inherently understanding the intricate functions of the body, and how it effects each connective muscle tissue. I love working out on her power plate and pilates machines (cadillac and reformer) and can't get enough of how it makes me feel. Her kind, but encouraging demeanor is motivating and inspiring. I am so grateful to have found Sarah."

Brook L. | Screen Writer, Age 30

"Sarah is very gifted in her ability to understand the body and is an exceptional trainer. She is challenging and motivating. I have asked her very specifically to target certain places and I have seen real results. Some people can lead you through "exercises" but Sarah knows the the relationship between all aspects of the body. It's not enough to go through the motions. She is super intuitive about form and how to shape a body. My goal is to look like her and if that isn't inspiring, what is?"

Stephanie R. | Talent Agent, Age 42

"I started seeing Sarah in 2007... my first introduction to Pilates. She was able to shape my body and posture in a way I didn't know was possible. You see, I was walking on an arthritic hip for over 40 years and had not addressed my unbalanced body and pain. Sarah worked miracles by defining muscles I didn't know I had! My core is strong and my muscles were ready for the hip replacement I eventually - needed to have. All these year's later, and Sarah is not just my Pilates instructor, she is my body healer."

Elizabeth S. | Product Development, Age 50

"Sarah is a body God! I have been going to Sarah since December 2014. I have double hip replacements and a newly replaced knee. Sarah changed the way I walk, helped me understand body alignment, helped me strengthen my core and understand how to position myself and control my movements. Before Sarah I couldn't walk 1 block, now I just got back from vacation where I was walking all day and climbing up inclines and steps. This was after only 2 months. What will happen in 5 months? She has also helped me with exercises in the pool. I couldn't recommend anyone higher than I could recommend Sarah. If you are having body problems let Sarah help you."

Bob M. | Media Executive, Age 70

"Sarah has been my trainer for the last seven years. Her knowledge of the body combined with her approach to training that starts with an emphasis on proper form, strengthening, and stretching, is like no other. Her workouts are unique, varied, and continually progressive. There really isn't anyone as good as her."

Nick F. | Talent Manage, Age 43

About me

Hi, I'm 


Come to TheBodyLabLA and experience how good you can look and feel!

After Sarah’s dream career in fashion turned out to be not so dreamy she was searching for her next career. Something with movement was a natural fit for her. She had been an athlete all growing up and feels most alive when she is moving her body – hiking, dancing, swimming, surfing, snowboarding. However in her 20’s those things became a struggle due to injuries from gymnastics and track. She dealt with debilitating back pain on and off for 17 years.

Through study, experimentation and practice she came to new understandings of the body and the mind and was able to relieve her own pain.

Her passion now is to educate, instruct and inspire her clients to feel good about themselves and feel good inhabiting their body.
