Since the age of 12 when she first took a true ballet technique class at her new school, Davidson Fine Arts in Augusta, GA, Sabrina has spent her life in a studio discovering the magic of movement. To this day, she is still just as passionate and committed to seeking out the wonders of the human body, mind, and soul. It is a journey that has taken her from her hometown ballet company to NYC to Juilliard where she studied ballet, modern, and choreography with world-renowned instructors.She then fulfilled a lifelong dream of running her own dance company, choreographing and performing with a group of dedicated dance professionals.
After giving birth to her two beautiful children by c-sections, she was drawn to the incredible work of Joseph Pilates (1883-1967) to strengthen and heal her own body, eventually leading her down a path to owning and running Sandvi Studio in Charlotte, NC. Teaching privately for the past decade has trained and sharpened her eye for detail. Sabrina’s quest to help her clients overcome illness, injuries, and other body issues through Pilates and self care techniques has led her to study with many incredible leaders in the fields of biomechanics, anatomy, breathwork, and fascial care and training.
Sabrina loves that Pilates by design, like dance, requires one to work with complete focus and awareness so it was a very natural transition for her. The experience of working with clients privately for so many years has deepened her understanding of the many ways our bodies will compensate for weaknesses or loss of range of motion without our conscious awareness. This has given her the ability to teach her virtual on-demand classes with cueing that may make you feel as if she is in the room with you and can see you! It is important to her that anyone taking her classes begins to discover the map of their own individual bodies and then actually understand what it means to have a “strong core” as they learn to move with more control and ease.
