Sarah Zielinski


As a movement professional and dancer, Sarah Zielinski found Pilates as way of rehabilitation from various injuries and surgeries by becoming a student of Lesley Davenport at The Pilates Center of Pittsburgh. She became literally ‘moved’ with how much Pilates helped fine-tune her body as an instrument; she knew she wanted to share that knowledge of body awareness through movement.

During teaching she has encountered clients living with a wide array of chronic issues (post-trauma or injury), those hoping to establish a deeper connection to their bodies through exercise, and athletes of all sorts wishing to prevent injury and strengthen their fitness routine.

A native of Pittsburgh, Sarah graduated summa cum-laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from Point Park University. After graduation she moved to NYC and had the privilege of working with The Metropolitan Opera, Doug Varone, Zvidance, Lorena Egan, Jessica Taylor (Damagedance), Awakening Movement, Caleb Teicher and many others.

Exploring movement and body work as a means to deepen life experience and our connection to our body, mind, earth, others and the universe.

Main interests

  • Nature-hikes, hikes, and more hikes
  • Supporting  organic local farms and regenerative farming.
  • Dogs-love love love! We learn so much from their nonverbal way of living and loving
  • Dancing in a way that feels good to you
  • Connection to others in a genuine and authentic way


I am grateful to have the opportunity to facilitate others in movement practices.  Movement is so healing and it brings me joy to see others discover further with it. Happy moving!
