Sarah Frahm

My movement history includes 20+years of dance training and performance, aerobics instruction and competition. The culmination has been study and certification through Turning Point Studio as a Pilates Instructor.

Pilates has produced strength and balance in my body like no other form of conditioning. With a passion for movement and a dose of creativity, it is my desire to impart that experience to others.

Areas of continued study include human anatomy and movement, Franklin Method, Body Rolling and release work and, most recently, Gyrotonic/Gyrokinesis.

Danica Radulovich

Danica found Pilates after a high school injury and fell in love with the results she saw inside and out from the mind-body connection. After graduating from UCLA and working in the pharmaceutical industry, she decided to pursue a fulfilling full time career helping others find similar ease and comfort in their own bodies. She completed her Balanced Body Comprehensive Pilates Instructor Training with Tom McCook at Center of Balance in Mountain View and has taken specialized continuing education workshops from Naomi Leiserson, Elizabeth Larkam, Karen Clippinger, Alan Herdman, and others. Danica is also a student of Ayurveda, a lover of Yoga and her dogs, a life-long dancer and former marathon runner. She hopes to spend a lifetime helping others enjoy life’s every move.
